Bykski Brings a Constellation of New Liquid Cooling Components to Computex 2019

Chinese DIY and AIO liquid cooling components vendor Bykski brought its largest ever collection of new products to Computex, this year. These include nine new CPU water blocks, ten new radiators of various sizes, five new full-coverage VGA water blocks, monoblocks, pumps, reservoirs, pump+reservoir combi-units, and two new AIO CLC CPU coolers. Bykski's collection of CPU water blocks now includes three new models purpose-built for AMD TR4 socket, and six blocks that support LGA2066, LGA1151, and AM4. A few of these, under the CU-RA brand, combine the beauty of RGB LED embellishments, with the brains of an integrated monitoring component. Part of the block's acrylic top, the component features an LCD display and sensors that detect coolant temperature, base temperature, and coolant pressure. Data is put out both as absolute values and as graphical histograms. This sensor unit is also sold as a standalone fitment to one of your coolant lines, to detect coolant temperature and pressure.
Byksi also showed us six of its full-coverage VGA water blocks built for various GeForce RTX 20-series and Radeon VII graphics cards. These blocks feature an interesting innovation: the bottom part of the block that makes contact with the heat source is exposed red copper, while its other end, which dissipates heat to the coolant, is nickel-plated copper for corrosion resistance. The manufacturer probably electroplates the whole block, and sands and polishes off the base. Acrylic is the top material of choice for the entire lineup, with the occasional metal top-cladding. All models are primed for RGB LED lighting. The company also unveiled a pair of Asetek-ish CPU AIO CLCs, one with a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator, and the other with a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. Both include RGB LED embellishments on the pump-block and radiator fans.
Also shown off was a unique horizontal pump-reservoir made almost entirely of acrylic. This reservoir, called the Cobra Navigator, serves as a coolant hub, so various blocks in your system connect directly to it, rather than in series. Reservoirs from Bykski come in most common cylindrical sizes. Some of these are plain cylinders, others with a helical inner-channel lighting element. Others come with integrated pumps, which seems to be the norm these days. You also have standalone pumps. The company also showed off its entire portfolio of colorful fittings, angles, joints, and more. Hundreds of SKUs.
Among the radiators shown off, were ones designed for 120 mm fans, ones for 140 mm fans, and even ones for smaller 80 mm fans. The 120 mm format radiators come in 120 mm, 240 mm, 360 mm, and 480 mm lengths. The 140 mm format ones come in 140 mm, 280 mm, and 420 mm lengths. The smaller 80 mm format rads come in 80 mm, 160 mm, and 240 mm lengths. Byksi is putting together kits of its various DIY liquid cooling products to trip your shopping list and ensure compatibility. Lastly, we see a concept high-end gaming PC build that brings together many of Byksi's flagship products, including the Cobra Navigator.

Some of this stuff seems kinda cool, especially that 1st pic of the water block with the digital readout.

Seems like they are trying to capture 99% of the WC market in 1 fell swoop :)

My real concern here would be the quality, especially the fittings/leakage etc....as SOME Chinese mfgr's have been known to cut significant corners to reach a certain price point, regardless of the consequences ......

Those are same as Bitspower imho... I've been using their fittings for like 5-4 years... none failed so far...

Like walking into a candy store, never used them, but will probably start with a few starter items.
