When the watercooling heatsink is bigger than the PC case

There is no limit to the heating of information components? The same goes for heat dissipation solutions!

The Japanese brand Bykski is virtually unknown in France, but it has found a way to get people talking about it. It's quite simple, since a few days we can't count the references to this product designed and manufactured by the Japanese company specialized in cooling solutions. Called Bykski External Water-cooled Unit 1080 and available at the online retailer CoolingLab, the solution in question is just another water-cooling system, one might say. However, it doesn't take much more than a glance to realize the mistake.

The "small" parallelepiped on the left is not the Bykski External Water-cooled Unit 1080, it is the PC case. The cooling solution is on the right: the huge, completely black box. To be precise, the product also known as "B-1080-CEC-X" is bigger than many micro-ATX PC cases: it measures 488 x 419 x 138 millimeters and is close to 10 kilograms, 9.7 kg to be exact.

Water-cooling specialists will say that such solutions are not new and they will be right, but as AMD / Intel processors get hotter and hotter with each new generation and graphics cards follow the same path, one can say that products like the Bykski External Water-cooled Unit 1080 may gain popularity. In order to justify its size, the unit has a very large aluminum radiator with nine 120-millimeter fans mounted on it. Of course, pumps and other accessories complete a solution that must then be connected to the PC via the inevitable watercooling pipes.

Bykski then specifies that its "B-1080-CEC-X" is capable of cooling even the largest of configurations and, to prove it, the manufacturer explains that if it can dissipate the heat emitted by any processor, it is actually able to dissipate up to 2,000 Watts and Bykski adds that this corresponds to a maximum of four graphics cards with the processor that goes well. We are almost surprised by the not-so-excessive price of this complete solution: Bykski asks for 80,000 yen, or more or less 550 euros. However, the combination of components justifying such a heatsink may put you out of pocket.
