First water block for Ampere Founders Edition
While other water block manufacturers are focusing on an RTX 30 series reference design, Bykski is focusing on Founders Edition first. This generation of Geforce offers three options when it comes to the board design:
- NVIDIA Founders Edition (PG133)
- NVIDIA reference design (PG132)
- AIB custom designs
The first two are not the same. The PG133 board design features an irregular V-shaped design, the iconic feature of the series. Meanwhile, the PG132 design is offered a regular, rectangular design for board partners who wish to create semi-custom designs (reference PCB and custom cooling) based on this CPB.
The third option is obviously not going to fit any regular water block, as these cards have custom power delivery sections and component layouts. Some brands will offer water blocks for these custom designs, EKWB already confirmed it.
The Bykski acrylic waterblock for RTX 3090/3080 is now listed at 139.90 EUR. The item is already sold out at EZModding.
