This external cooler is as big as a PC

Having an absolute beast of a PC is all well and good, until you need to keep it cool. There’s a price to pay for all that power, and often that price comes in the form of heat. In fact, power and heat are synonymous thanks to the laws of physics, and this will unfortunately always be the downfall of overclocking enthusiasts. As much as they like to produce heat, the sensitive components in your PC can only handle so much of it. Keeping a PC cool is serious business for the health and longevity of any machine, and that’s why I can’t help but appreciate this incredibly serious effort from Bykski.

Prolific Twitter source Momomo_ US (opens in new tab) spotted the new Bykski external water cooled unit (opens in new tab) (via Tom’s Hardware (opens in new tab)) for sale in Japan going for the equivalent of $525 USD (opens in new tab). That price seemed about right as it’s now up for preorder on the Bykski website (opens in new tab) for $559.99 USD. Given the price ticket, you’d be hoping for some very impressive cooling unlike some other coolers (opens in new tab) we’ve heard about recently, and given this cooler may well be bigger than your PC, it might just manage it.
