Product Videos [ Edit ]

Features [ Edit | History ]

  • True full cover water-block:  the block covers the full length of the card and utilizes all the original circuit board mounting points; this results in superior thermal interface with all the components, but more importantly it prevents bending and/or damage to the card compared to competing solutions that leave critical components exposed for cost saving purposes; the Komodo HD7970 continues this exclusive Swiftech® initiative as a true professional solution (an industry first).

  • Further enhanced thermal performance: recent independent reviews have placed the Komodo waterblocks at the top of the thermal performance charts compared to all other offerings on the market; this was due to Swiftech's 0.60x0.60 thin pin matrix technology;  with the Komodo HD7970 Swiftech introduces the micro-pin matrix technology which features pins measuring 0.25x0.35mm;  this design improves thermal performance even further and is closely comparable to that of the Swiftech's CPU waterblocks (0.25x0.25 micro-pins). This feature brings unrivalled thermal efficiency across the widest range of flow rates.

  • The flow restriction is moderate by design in order to take into account multiple water-blocks in the same loop; additionally, the high efficiency of the thermal design authorizes better thermal performance at lower flow rates, which is a critical feature for users of variable speed pumps such as the MCP35X who wish to tune down their pump RPMs for quiet operations, or for users with moderately powerful pumps.

  • New LED lit bridge construction: the new bridge construction dramatically enhances the cosmetic appeal of the water-block when it actually counts, i.e. when the block is installed into your computer and you can actually see it working, thanks to a back-lit logo, and elegant laser engraved markings.

  • A high quality black anodized aluminum back-plate is included with the product, and it serves to protect the fragile components at the back of the card during handling and/or installation.

  • New standoffs around the GPU include a threaded locator stem which is fully compliant with AMD's reference cooler design. This feature precisely locates the board and cooler together, eliminating guessing dring installation, and most importantly it allows you to re-use AMD's excellent spring cross-bracket & screws: this new feature provides added safety, efficiency, convenience, and it allows a quick and painless installation!

  • The base plate is precision CNC machined out of C110 electrolytic copper, and plated with true chrome, as opposed to commonly used nickel plating (which is yellowish);

  • The housing is precision CNC machined out of durable black POM acetal;

  • High thermal conductivity thermal pads are already pre-cut and pre-applied to the memory areas and VR areas;  there is no need to waste time cutting thermal pads as is often the case with our competition; thermal grease is included with the water-block for application to the GPU area.

  • A single spacing PCI bracket is included for users who need to interpose other PCI cards in between their graphics cards.

  • Up to four Komodo HD7970 waterblocks can be interconnected with Swiftech's bridges.
