Bitspower at COMPUTEX 2018 - It's All About the Watercooling

Bitspower at COMPUTEX 2018 showcased its watercooling expertise with the various solutions its engineers have come up with in their bid to provide attention-grabbing products in a difficult, cutthroat market. From heatsinks to fittings, to pumps and waterblocks, various products were shown off - some of them with RGB or LED lighting, others, not so much.

From designs for NVIDIA's Quadro graphics cards (in the form of the BP-VGQGP100) or NVIDIA's Tesla accelerator (BP-WBVTP4RD-H-BRGB), to solutions for other, more mainstream products for CPUs (such as the BP-CPUEF-DRGB and the BP-WBCPUM-DRGB waterblocks) and their own watercooled power-supply design, built in conjunction with FSP, in the form of the FSP 850W power supply, there was something to please the eyes of every watercooling enthusiast, showcasing the company's design and performance-first philosophy.
After that, it was fittings galore, and a looks at the company's BG-VGTITANV water block for NVIDIA's Titan graphics card. The company's CNC expertise and technical acuity was also on show; take a look at these bonus pictures form the company's pride display of its techniques.

ya know i think it would be cool to have a flow meter on that PSU so it looked like a fan.

other than that, i like the looks of all these shiny things . . . thanks for posting.

That would be a massive flow indicator (120-140mm!) and would as such likely cause significant flow impedance. The mass of that thing would not be insignificant, and making a relatively small amount of water flow effectively past something that big is not easy. No doubt they thought of it, though.

yes i am sure they thought of it and decided it wasn't practical; function>form. but i wasn't meaning the size of a fan, one that looked like a fan. :p

But to look like a fan, it has to be the size of one (at least in terms of diameter if not thickness), no? It could of course look like a miniature fan, but then it wouldn't look like a PSU or case fan, which would IMO be rather weird. Maybe they could put a flow indicator into a faux fan hub with some sort of blurry "fan blades moving" print surrounding it? Or just a bunch of RGB, of course. Then nobody would care about anything else :p

i was inclined to think some lighting (RGB ofc) could make an illusion of making a flow meter looking bigger.

idk, it was just a thought, maybe w/o enough coffee in me. if i was smart/creative enough to follow through w/the idea, i'd probably be making a larger income. :oops:
