extreme cooling system… and external
Today we come across a curious and striking refrigeration system, the Bykski B-1080-CEC-X. This is because we are really facing what would be a second tower for our PCbut it hides a huge copper radiator accompanied by no less than 9 fans.
In essence, it is an oversized water cooling system capable of supporting a TPD of up to 2,000W of power. In other words, it will easily cool an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, and even an even more extreme configuration of up to four GPUs. Come on, it offers great versatility in those conditions where temperatures are a problem.
This is the Bykski B-1080-CEC-X
As you can see, we would essentially have a second mid-tower with dimensions of 419 x 138 x 488 mm. inside it hides a huge radiator made of copper of 46mm thick for maximum cooling. This radiator has 30 double channels for the flow of coolant, which can be accompanied by nothing less than up to 9 120mm fans. These fans do not seem to come pre-installed, just an aluminum plate where all of them are connected. So the performance can vary greatly depending on the type of fan that is installed.
What is included as standard is a water pump which promises to move a maximum constant flow of coolant from 700 liters per minute at a pressure of 1.5 bar. On the front, the aluminum chassis has an opening that allows you to see coolant tank, and thus be able to check the amount of liquid available in the system. On both sides of the system, we have aluminum panels designed to favor the entry of fresh air and the exit of hot air.
Rest of the information of this external water cooling system
In essence, to be fully functional, the Bykski B-1080-CEC-X it only requires the fans, and that your PC has a water block for the CPU or GPU with the classic G1/4 connection. Unfortunately, no benchmark is shown to see what this system is capable of and to see how much it can reduce the temperatures of a CPU or GPU. Perhaps most curious of all, is that this cooling system uses a special cable that ends in a Molex connector 4-pin connector to connect to the main system.
A negative point is that in addition to its large size, it also implies having the other system partially open, unless a modification is made to the window in order to close it and only the refrigerant liquid tubes and the power cable can be seen coming out to the Exterior. This cooling system has been listed in a store in Japan at a suggested retail price of 72,356 yen, which translates to $520 or 499 euros. In essence, it is not a disproportionate price for what it is, but of course, perhaps it is more focused on servers than for a gamer who has temperature problems.
