Bykski I-GNA380-X GPU BLOCK is a custom water block for GUNNIR Arc A380 Photon OC graphics card, thus far the only desktop Arc model available for sale. At this moment it is unclear if GUNNIR PCB is a full custom design or, what would make more sense at this price point, based on Intel reference layout. Therefore, one cannot be sure if Bykski A380 water block will only ever fit one model.

For now, this full cover block only supports GUNNIR PCB equipped with ACM-G11 GPU and 6GB of GDDR6 memory. This board has one 8-pin power connector which feeds 92W, just slightly more than Intel reference 75W TGP. One thing is sure though, such power requirements usually do not require sophisticated cooling solutions, let alone liquid cooling.

From the looks of it, this water block is single slot, so some A380 users may find this block interesting for smaller and quieter builds. But the last time we checked, there weren’t many users to begin with.

At the time of writing, the official product page did not list any pricing for this water block.
