EK has confirmed that they will be making an AMD RX 480 full cover water block, something that is almost unheard of for such an affordable/mid-range GPU product.  

With the 4GB version of this GPU sporting an ultra low price tag of $199, it is hard to believe that many users will be choosing to water cool this GPU, as water blocks typically cost upwards of $90. This also raises the question of whether this GPU would benefit from water cooling from an overclocking standpoint, as we have already heard rumors of overclocks as high as 1600MHz.

Right now EK has not revealed the pricing or released any pictures of this new water block, only that this new full cover water block is "coming soon".

In terms of current lineup or in recent memory?

Nah, I'd still say the 390 8gb is their best card unless the reviews for this prove it is everything they've promised.Quote

Well at worst this card ties with 390/970 so it would then be considered there best card. At best it's 980/Nano level. So even better at that point. It's just a little strange they are making a block. It'll probably cost $100. On top of the GPU, kinda takes away the point of the cardQuote
