The laser cutters were going to charge me almost $200 to make a new mount plate for the old GPU block so that isn't worth it.
just order the EKWB full cover block for this gpu and call it done. GPU and MEM really shine with water cooling. I know it is a little pricey (140$ USD) but its money well spent if you want the best shot possible to hang with 2080 and 2080ti's... just sayin

Nothing! Waiting for the 9900k and 2080ti to come out

Bykski seems to get significantly better temperatures.

Barrow design looks decent.

Bitspower & Phanteks launch their own very soon.

Why get the EK (it's only better than the terrible AlphaCool).

The AlphaCool has been almost universally panned, and many have been defective.

Most people with Bykski blocks are getting better performance here and elsewhere than EK users. Which is hardly surprising given EK's first to market, minimum effort philosophy these days.

I know about Phanteks / Bitspower because I asked them.

I can confirm from ocuk forum people with Bykski are getting better temps than the ones with ek block.

^^ lol, reliable sources.


I've put 2 EK vector blocks on my 2080Tis and a bitpower block on a third. All three hold the cards between 10 and 15C above loop (cold side) temperature at full load pulling 300W (or more each). Any real comparison is not a trivial exercise.
I'll likely go with EK for my VII, but bitspower is quite good too. (Have two Bits blocks on two Titan Vs - simple design and very effective)

It's pretty reliable when a number of the people have bought both, and some are very experienced with water cooling. It's been replicated across various forums, and neither block has contact issues, and there are far more EK fans than Bykski fans.

Every single group test of bitspower GPU blocks has put them either at the absolute bottom of the pack, or very near it. They're nicely made, and I have a bunch of their fittings (best on the market), but they've yet to prove their designs are anything other than scraping the bottom of the barrel in terms of performance, re: GPU blocks. That said, they're probably prettier than anything else besides AquaComputer and WaterCool Heatkiller GPU blocks, so if that's most important for you, go ahead.

The reason I hold out a little more hope for Phanteks is that they're very new to the water cooling game, and whilst their first few GPU blocks have been only a little better than bitspower's offerings, I suspect there's more likelihood of improvement.

Storm G5 is now mounted on the Radeon VII with a thick application of grizzly kryo.
Ended up making another plate to go between the GPU and the Block so it can use 4 small bolts with 4 large bolts, it's not pretty but it does the job.

60c in the junction with that voltage is really good..
