Bykski Announces Four Water Blocks for ASUS ROG STRIX GPUs
John Williamson / 4 years ago
Bykski is a specialist in water cooling hardware and often releases a number of spectacular designs. Today, the company unveiled four new water blocks for the ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. This is a sensible move given the high-end nature of the ROG versions which benefit from chip binning to achieve high overclocks.
The water blocks employ a stylish white theme which should appeal to those with a white build. Although, this colour scheme may not be suitable for other systems which adopt the classic red and black colour combination.
On another note, the graphics card cover is constructed entirely from copper and contains a Bykski Four logo. Also, the copper surface is nickel-plated for anti-oxidation purposes. The water block provides direct cooling for both the GPU and VRMs.
In terms of pricing, the Bykski FR-AS1080STRIX will be on sale via the company’s official store for $169. Please note, Bykski is focused on the Chinese market, and that’s their audience. However, it is possible to import the water block, but you need to take any additional fees into account like custom charges and import duty.
Are you a fan of the white design or think it’s a little bit over the top?
