Bykski Releases the World’s First Radeon VII Water Block

It has been almost a month since AMD launched their Radeon VII graphics card (Our Full Review can be read here), and water block vendors have been relatively slow when it comes to releasing full-cover water blocks for the graphics card. 

Bykski, a popular water cooling components maker in the Asia/Pacific regions of the globe, has launched the world’s first Radeon VII water block, a component which is designed specifically to cool AMD’s reference Radeon VII graphics card. 

Like many of its peers within the industry, Bykski makes their water blocks using an electroplated copper water block and a clear acrylic covering, with Bykski’s solution integrating a 5v Addressable RGB lighting solution into the water block. At this time, high-profile water cooling manufacturers like EK have not released Radeon VII water block designs. That said, EK appears to have a Radeon VII water block in the works. 

AMD’s Radeon RX Vega series of graphics cards benefitted greatly from liquid cooling, utilising the increased thermal headroom on offer to maintain higher boost clocks and deliver enhanced performance. Back in 2017, EK released a report which claimed that their RX Vega 64 offered a 9% performance boost and a 4% reduction in power draw by trading AMD’s reference blower for the company’s full-cover water block. Perhaps the Radeon VII would see similar benefits when liquid cooled.
