Guys. I know people on OCN don't really use Bykski or Barrow water cooling products. But XSPC and EKWB is all anyone stocks in South Africa and well noone has ANYTHING for vega. I would love an EKWB block for my VEga like I have on my Fury's but all anyone ever stocks in South Africa are water parts for Nvidia. Heck some retailers still have Geforce 900 series stuff and one even 8800 series water parts. But not a Vega block to be seen. Importing a EKWB block for 150 dollars excl shipping and customs is going to be a hard pill to swallow. But I can get a Bykski or Barrow block for 100US. 90US once I use my Aliexpress coupon..... So between the Barrow Vega block and the Bykski which would you pick? I am leaning towards the Barrow. I have heard more about Barrow in recent years and Bykski to me is a new name so not sure what to expect.
