Bykski Releases Full-Coverage Water Blocks for GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050

Bykski, known as one of the biggest water block provider in China, releases the water blocks for the latest GPU-GeForce GTX 1050Ti/GTX 1050. Though the TDP of GTX 1050Ti and GTX 1050 are both at 75W, the water cooling PC is still has a lot of requirements for the lower noise and gorgeous appearance because of the low budget of the NVIDIA new GPU.

The Bykski N-IG1050ONCE-X is release for the Colorful GTX 1050Ti/GTX 1050 graphics cards firstly, because Colorful has the biggest market share in China market. The water block is made of cooper of the base and designed as a full cover with Colorful logo on it, and all the cooper surface is nickel plated for anti-oxidation treatment. It provides direct cooling for both GPU and RAM. And the transparent acrylic cover allows users to watch inside of the water flow. The tube connectors allow the water block install different fittings for different appearances that users like.
The N-IG1050ONCE-X will be on sale for both official online store and regions with BYKSKI distributors, the suggested retail price is $79 USD. And BYKSKI will launch more GTX1050Ti/GTX1050 water blocks for different brands one after another.

Why would you get a waterblock on your potato?

Well, that's ridiculous even by my standards... :banghead:
A $79 waterblock for a slot-powered $120 card which in dual-fan configuration @low RPM can be as quiet as H2O - that's insane!
My old GTX750Ti w/ Twin frozr was almost inaudible and never went past 58°C even when OCed.
My ASUS GTX950-M with much higher power consumption and heat output has almost no noise impact on the background of my EVGA PSU.
Pascal cards of this class theoretically should run even cooler and quieter.

RX 460 waterblock? GT 710 waterblock?

This only illustrates custom water cooling's dirty secret (it's mostly for show/bragging rights) - which is fine, custom water-cooled hardware does look awesome. But the days of actually needing a custom loop are long past, with pre-filled AIO coolers that work just as well, and video cards with factory-installed AIO loops. With the efficiency of today's CPUs and GPUs, one could argue that even AIO water coolers are overkill, as the best air coolers work almost as well. I like my H110, because large air coolers strain the motherboard, and take up too much room. and it allows me a 4.6GHz OC, which is as high as my chip will go anyway and remain stable.
You may have noticed that Corsair refused to follow the pack, and will NOT be releasing a 360mm AIO, because it won't cool any better than a 240/280mm rad, and is incompatible with most cases. So yes, this block IS ridiculous, but no more so than most custom loops, where hundreds of $ gets you maybe 2 degrees cooler than an AIO...

Water cooling is clearly useless on such low-end 75W TDP cards*, people should rather use these dollars for buying a GTX 1060 instead. Water cooling might be "silent", but it's not that silent.

*) Except for like 3 people with very unusual requirements.

waste of resources, i prefer they spend their time and money on passive cooling on such low tdp card

I'm thinking of getting full coverage waterblock for my Casio G-Shock... I'm afraid it might overheat without it...

Noise. Certainly not bragging rights.

Try air cooling a 980ti at 1500mhz with virtually no sound. That's why a lot of folks use water. Won't argue on the CPU front, an AIO, or even a meaty heatsink will do. But some GPU's do better under a block.
This block however is nonsense.

They'll add that only after EK does, so then they'll have something to copy first.

This is a product aimed at those with more money than brains.
We, the smart people, know that the proper way to cool a GTX 1050 is LN2 or Peltier.

Of course this is overkill for low end cards, but water cooling mid range cards like the GTX 1060 and RX 480 isn't a terrible idea. Keeping not just the GPU temps down, but the VRM temps low will really help keep it running for years. Then you can resell it with the air cooler and it MIGHT last longer that it usually would.

Water cooling any card is more an enthusiast thing to do, so money isn't really a concern. The GTX 1050 Ti WC would work well in a mITX build running a small loop. It's not something I would want but I can see the point of doing it.

So, where's the $79 MSRP blocks for high-end cards?

It's on a 75W GPU and it's useful as an ashtray on the bicycle.

What is a waterblock?

Correct :clap:

Cards below GTX 1060 and RX 480 are useless for any eye friendly gaming activities and so are waterblocks for them.

If you already have a loop for the cpu you can toss the gpu on for next to nothing not like it produces enough heat to need a radiator for itself. That means no noise and single slot usage in the case.

How likely it is for someone with the money for watercooling to be installing a 1050 in their system?

Ah so people who don't need a 1080 can't have dead silent water cooled rigs?
