EK has shown off their first RX 480 GPU waterblock, which will become available to purchase within the next two weeks. 

This block is the first RX 480 water block to come off the production line, with EK stating that this water block will be coming in all 4 standard block variants, with Anodised copper and Nickel plated copper versions as well as versions with clear Acrylic or black Acetal tops. 

Pricing of this new GPU water block is yet to be announced but EK does state that this block will cost around €100, "hopefully less".

Right now the RX 480 is a very strange GPU overclocking wise, with the more time we spend looking at this GPU resulting in us learning more and more interesting ways to get a little bit more performance out of this GPU.   

At this time we have plans on releasing a detailed article on how to get the best performance out of your RX 480 GPU, though you should note that some of the steps we take may seem unintuitive to some overclockers. 

 

You can join the discussion on the EK RX 480 GPU water block on the OC3D Forums.

You never know this could be the R9 290X all over again although I would prefer to buy the Sapphire Nitro and get a water block for that purely for the 8pin power connectorQuote

Have you seen this?



Basically an 8pin would allow it to draw more power and not overdraw from the pci-express power delivery.Quote
