EK has released their RX 480 GPU water block for models using AMD's reference PCB. This water block has been designed to directly cool all important areas on the GPU from the memory to the VRMs and most importantly the GPU core. 

 

  EK-FC RX-480 directly cools the GPU, GDDR5 RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas, thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.

This block will be available on all 4 of EK's standard styles and uses EK's innovative Split-flow cooling engine design which offers decreased resistance to fluid flow as well as the ability to easily use the water block in a reverse flow scenario with no negative side effect. 

Below is the EU pricing of the EK RX 480 water block, revealing a rather high price tag of 100 Euros, which is similar to most other EK water blocks but rather high for such a budget-oriented GPU.

Awesome!

Its also really nice that it turns the RX480 into a single slot card. Going to use the 480 in my son's birthday build.

Just curious, but does anyone know how long the card is with the block on? I can't find any data on just PCB length instead of the extended cooler. Only asking because length is limited for ITX

But yes, I do think that's an expensive block for a mid range card.Quote

Imo a block is a block. that is just what they cost. The price point for the card itself is irrelevant. the same amount of r and d is required no matter the card value so why not charge the full price for the product. I think it looks classQuote

No not always true. Most of EKs blocks are the same exact style/look and really only differ in the areas where screws need to go.

What EK does is more or less have a standard price on all there GPU blocks. This means they aim for a specific profit margin. Has less to do with R&D since for every block about half is probably already done. Now for a custom PCB/specific card they make a block for, then yes it should and does cost more than a reference one, as they will sell less units and need to offset the costs somewhere.Quote

I didnt say how much the costs where hehehe. But i think to say that a product should be cheaper because the gpu is a cheaper item is bonkers. Watercooling is an optional upgrade and if a person isnt prepared to pay the price that is set then that person should not be water cooling.Quote
