Would love a place with free shipping, but that`s just too much to ask for it seems.
Bykski USA is a good choice if you're in the US. The Ali sellers charge such high shipping that stateside is cheaper too.

Bykski USA is really expensive right now, mainly due to high import and tariff fees from what I read. They're trying to normalize it, but who knows when that will be.

I've seen formulamod.com mentioned. I just ordered from freezemod.com and had a good experience. Any of the Chinese storefronts you order from are going to have cheap products with steep shipping, though.

YMMV but some of the products are identical in price due to high shipping from China.

Could someone please provide a reliable source for white Barrow fittings and connectors from Asia? I found some sellers on Taobao, but I really am not sure I should spend 500+ dollars there.
What I am looking for is a known serious website from Asia or Europe which carries Barrow fittings from the whole range, I need all types of white fittings and connectors for my build and I can't find any other brand carrying them.

Just bought my Bykski setup from Aliexpress seller 'watercooling CN Store'. I got the 1080 GTX strix waterblock, bykski s2011 cpu block, 5.25" bay clear reservoir, all fittings (including nice y splitter with screw valve (no accidental turns) for draining, a D5 pump for $190 delivered to Chicago. Took about 2 weeks from initial order confirmation to front door delivery. The seller was great because individually the shipping rates are high but if you get a few items he give me a package discount. The pump is near silent and the blocks are high quality. Pic below before I tidied up the fan wires. I already had the killcoil, radiator and tubing beforehand.

I know it looks like I'm shilling for this guy, but the customer service was great and all the products are 1st class and the price was ridiculous for what I got.

I'm awaiting a TR block by Bykski. I was going to order CPU-XPR-AM, in feedback for item I saw photo showing differing setup of block. Seller was quick to respond to query and it turns out Bykski have changed design but not updated their site about. I instead went for A-Ryzen-Th-X/A-Ryzen-ThV2-X.

This pump? It's a knockoff. Plus, D5s are built in Hungary, why would it be cheaper from a Chinese seller?

They rotated the orientation of the in/out ports and the jet plate. Interesting!

Guys, because I am bad at recognising screws, does anyone knows what is the type of the long screws Bykski supplies with their waterblocks?

I bought the Vega 64 Nitro+ waterblock from them, and while is amazing, I am 9 long screws short. I was already 5 screws short by using the small 4 screws with the springs to fit the waterblock, but they aren't that good to properly fit the block. So I had to remove 4 springs from the short screws, and use the X crosspiece with the long screws and the springs to properly fit the block tightly.

The same found in this picture. (long ones)

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Bykski/FOUR_Founders_GTX_1080_Waterblock/images/packaging-6.jpg

I have used the remaining long screws with the Nitro+ backplate near the VRM L shape area, and couple of more to hold the front and back. But still I am 9 screws short.

As for a quick review, the waterblock is amazingly good in performance, very well made and supplied with RBG controllers etc and 2/3 the price of the EK product.
(not that the latter is making V64 Nitro+ waterblocks)

Btw here is a pic with it's fittings ready to be plugged on the Predator 360

Decided to go on an adventure because I'm cheap and get my gear direct from China and BARROW through Taobao.

edit: The struggle is documented here: reddit.com/r/taobao/comments/8phl5p/first_time_taobao_stuck_on_first_shipping/

About USD $400 + $70 in shipping
And second package USD $10
Took 1 - 1.5ish month
