Need some advice from owners of a Bykski OLED Temperature Display regarding it's construction materials
After trying 3 separate Barrowch OLED Temperature displays that were all inaccurate (all were around 3-4C under the coolant temperature when compared to two XSPC sensors and one Bitspower sensor) I decided to give the Bykski one a try. The construction materials are listed as Aluminium and POM, same as the Barrowch units. I suspected it was the same deal in that the face plate was aluminium and the body was POM, and googling it brought up some Reddit threads that seemed to confirm this was the case. However I received it today and the whole outer body, including the threads look and feel like aluminium to me. The body is cold like metal and heavy, and there's a spot on one of the threads where the coating has slightly scratched off and it looks silver underneath.
In light of this I'm not entirely comfortable putting it in my loop until I can confirm that it's safe to do so. I know there are some users on here that have the same unit and I'm hoping they can chime in and let me know if my suspicions are true.
If it is aluminium, I don't know what they were thinking since most of Bykski's lineup of blocks and fittings etc are copper and brass to my knowledge.
