In the comments on reviews about high-end AiO watercooling systems you can always read that a custom loop can be built for the money. And that’s exactly what we have here today as a practical ready-to-use set to test this statement:
Packaging and accessories
Normally the set comes with its own proper packaging, but at the moment the dealer EZModding is reworking this and has therefore already manually put something together for me in advance. Apart from that, my special parcel here was also well packed and the content was padded with a lot of bubble wrap.
To make it as easy as possible to set up your own watercooling system, there are some accessories included, besides the scissors to cut the softtube, there is also a small spray bottle and – to my surprise – a liter of DP Ultra coolant from aquacomputer.
We will come to the remaining components in detail on the next page.
Assembly and installation
Depending on the system, the further procedure varies somewhat, of course, but some general statements can still be made. The CPU block in this kit here is specifically designed for AMD CPUs and simply screws into the Bykski backplate with four screws. This is optically almost identical to the backplate included with mainboards, but has slightly larger holes for the screws.
Strange that they don’t just use matching screws for the normal AM4 backplate here and save the extra backplate. In my test system, I chose the order of components as follows: pump -> CPU block -> radiator -> pump. There will be pictures later.
