Bykski Watercooling - Blocks from China - Page 10

post #91 of 309
Thanks for sharing, looks like the installation is from the back similar to a monoblock and this may not be compatible with motherboards that do not have holes through the PCB for cooler mounting.

Oh yea forgot about that, wasn't that the 2011-3 sockets? I'm doing a Skylake build and have been testing the hardware on air, but I would really like to get this block on to see how it fits. I don't think there is much more testing I can do at this point and I ordered my pump tonight, so I will probably try to slap this bad boy block on this weekend.

Seems like you've got junk in there, have you washed it out? I recomend that you dissamble the block and give it a wash

I don't think its gunk, I think its just dark spots on the metal surface, but I am definitely going to flush it good this weekend to be sure. Last resort will be taking it apart if I see any flow restriction problems.

If you're really bothered by the dark spots, you can take some 2500 grit sand paper to them. I didnt like the white on my rads and a day ago, threw acetone on them. Found tons of imperfections, uneven rough steel and white paint that wouldn't come off. Spent about 6 hours sanding them down 180/220/400/800/1200/2500. Was tired at the end so my rads arent perfect but easily better than before.

I'll spoiler the pics to make it less annoying. Remember I am not an experienced reviewer or photographer, so let's keep the laughter to a minimum. smile.gif

The retail packaging was good, about what you would expect. Some of the edges and corners were a little beat up, but that was most assuredly from shipping. I bought this from a US e-tailer so I know it got shipped at least twice, once from China and then once to me.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Upon opening the box my buyer's aware sense started tingling that this might be a return, but then again maybe it was just a cost saving measure for packaging, Everything seemed haphazardly thrown in the box, hmmmmm....

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The block itself was in a anti-static bag, but no particular care was taken to fold it perfectly and no seal was present at all.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Once I got it out of the bag, it is definitely a beauty, and as heavy as it looks. The acrylic top probably weighs the same as the block itself. I should have weighed it, but no time to find the scale the kids are screaming they're hungry! (The finger smudges are all mine and not a free gift with purchase, so no worries there).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Tried to get as good a close up on the fins as I could with my S5, (remember the disclaimer about not being an experienced photographer?), and interesting I see dark spots in the fins, could it be gunk? That would be a telling sign that it was returned, but upon closer inspection it is just dark spots on the metal surface. It doesn't look like any kind of corrosion to me and hopefully won't spread or cause any performance issues. I will most likely be using dye so it won't be seen, and my guess even with straight distilled the spots will fade away from notice once the block is installed on the mobo in the case.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

With the closer inspection I also noticed a couple of pits in the top of the metal block. It obviously won't cause performance issues and from a distance with the naked eye they're almost impossible to notice. Unless the acrylic top was removed by someone else these pits must have happened from the factory. For close up professional glamour shots these probably wouldn't pass the mustard for experts, but for me I think I can live with it.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I have no idea of the details of Bykski's QC procedures, but apparently it passed, unless the QC inspector's lunch was getting cold and just stamped it to not be late playing Dominoes on break. And look at ALL that mounting hardware! (/sarcoff) I guess I should step through the instructions before making a dig though,

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Uh oh, no instructions included. Again, was it a return, or does Bykski assume a certain level of user experience. I scoured the internet last night looking for any kind of downloadable instruction manual but unfortunately could find none. Luckily I've done this sort of thing before and I am slightly mechanical inclined if I do say so myself. So unless the mounting system is just completely FUBAR, then hopefully shouldn't be a big issue, we'll see...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Last but not least with the block purchase I had a choice of an LED and 2 fittings. I forgot to get pics of the fittings but I chose 14mm Barrow matte black rigid compression fittings. I love Barrow, have them in my sig rig, and will be all in this new loop also, so I got the exact fittings I needed and they won't be tossed in a drawer. The LED probably won't be used, but hey you never know I might need a little more bling at some point.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

All in all I'm impressed with the cosmetics of the block, a few minor issues yes but if we complained about every small detail we would have more RMA's then purchases. The packaging was good, although there is still that small sense that tells me this might have been a return, but if the performance is anything like it looks I will be a satisfied buyer. I tried not to drag this out too much but hopefully someone can find it useful. Once I get the block in the loop and get some performance readings I will be happy to post a follow up.


So is that all they gave you, was those little screws that look like video card cooler mounting hardware????
Looks like there is no way it would ever reach through any kind of mother board, let alone a piece of paper

I think it is supposed to be screwed on the back, using small screws like how you would install a gpu block

I wonder how are they keeping up? Just stumbled on some GTX 1070 blocks on AMAZON... googled and found out this thread who fortunately is still alive! I'm kind of interested in your results since I also have dual 1366 rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

Hi guys, I'm using one of Bykski's custom kit and it is keeping my rig running cool so far. thumb.gif
Lately I've just added an R9-290 block to my GPU and it never reach 60* when playing heavy game for 4 hours or so.
Temp room always more than 30*, no conditioner.
I think I should share my 250$ loop here.

And this is the GPU block when I leak test it.

Looks nice man, all of that came in the Bykski kit, tube, blocks, radiator, fan, fittings, res, pump, temp and flow meters? If so that is an amazing deal at $250
