On Friday, Swiftech announced their newest reference R9 Fury and FuryX GPU water cooling solution, the Komodo-R9 FuryX Eco. Other than sporting good looks, this waterblock serves the practical purpose of cooling the GPU as well as other hot-spots like the memory and MOSFETs. Swiftech claims that a more holistic approach to video card cooling should lead to improved stability during the course of overclocking.
