I wish it came with installation instructions
Firstly. I can confirm this block works with all PNY 4090 cards. I have the PNY Verto Triple fan 4090 (all black model) and this block mounts to the GPU. I have this block in a triple 420 radiator loop and at idle GPU temp is roughly 23-25 degrees. Peak temperature under extreme 30 minute stress test was 41 degrees. There is plenty of headroom with temps.
RGB is awesome on this block. By far the best block out for PNY 4090 GPU’s
For the price it’s not a great value. Have it mounted to a PNY 4090 ref and it’s imperfectly adequate.
- No instructions included. QR codes meant for instructions dont direct you to them. Not a problem for me, but for others not familiar with these things, definitely an issue
-No single slot bracket included: So you don’t get one of the largest benefits of a single slot card.
-Back plate is a lazy design: a rectangular backplate with only 3 areas to secure it to the card. The 3 areas being at the corners. This is annoying because clamping pressure is uneven, and you can literally see the back plate become lopsided. It’s quite thick, heavy and flat, with no milled areas to emphasize contact points. Standoffs are just nuts, instead of milled extrusions. Again, very lazy and nearly worthless.
-Questionable quality thermal pads: the product didn’t instill confidence in me that the thermal pads would be decent. They were all squished and spilling from the boundaries of their film. Just to be safe I used Arctic pads at the same thickness.
Rear facing inlets: These pcb’s are so wide already, more companies need to do this. This was the ONLY reason I went with this waterblock.
No frills, low key design: No rgb, no acrylic, just all business. I love it
Final thoughts: worth well under what it’s being sold for. The price demands a better quality product from Bykski. Go with with competitors at this price range. Cut $100 off this price and I’d be more inclined to recommend it.
I bought these heatsinks to replace the stock G-skill heatsinks on my Hynix A-die, in addition to a fan pointed at the DIMMs. At 1.4v stock, the DIMMs would hit 69c. After the new heatsinks and fan, the same test at 1.5v hit 52c max. 17c improvement while increasing the voltage significantly.
I had issues finding the right Waterblock for my Radeon 7900 XTX because of the 3rd PCIE Port on the GPU. This is definitely the right Waterblock for this model and had zero issues with my water cooling system after getting everything set up. Very satisfied with the product. It looks amazing in my new set up.
