EK Water Blocks is ready with a full-coverage water block for AMD Radeon RX 480 (model: EK-FC RX-480). Designed for the reference-design RX 480 PCB, the block features a common coolant channel for the GPU, memory, and VRM, with a ridged coolant channel over the GPU for better heat dissipation. The block is 1-slot thick, and comes in four variants, exposed copper block with clear acrylic top, exposed copper with opaque POM acetal top, and nickel-plated copper with acrylic/acetal tops. Since the upcoming Radeon RX 470 features the same reference PCB design, this block could be compatible with that card, too. The company didn't reveal pricing.

I think they were also fooled by the AMD performance claims.
Otherwise, I don't see the point of this block.

Who would pay 200$ on a card and 100$ on a cooler, considering the overclocking is not even that great?

RX480 out performs the gtx 970 at half the price and does so on day 1 with virtually no cooling with a 6 pin power connector and a beta driver and no overclock, LoL.
Most definitely Number 1 in it's class ATM. Can only get better.
Waterblock may be a better idea on the after market cards to come with modified boards and 8 pin connectors,
looking forward to the results.

Nothing wrong with a water block on a hot running, noisy card. That's the main draw.

OTOH, comparing to a 970 which is EOL is a bit naff. Need to compare to the GTX1060 when it comes out (in paper fashion) next week.

If they weren't sure that 480 is a more than a good overclocker they wouldn't have it ready me thinks. Especially for a GOU of this price category. So, wait a bit for the custom oced ones. ;)

Gtx 1060? - http://wccftech.com/nvidia-gtx-1060-special-launch-event-july/- looks like 192 bit bus and 3g version (WTF?) for $250 and 6g version for 300$. Bet the actual sale price will be much higher too.

RX480 custom cards look sweet - http://wccftech.com/amd-rx-480-asus-strix-msi-gaming/ - they've reported clock speeds up to 1.6ghz
Now a waterblock on them looks worth it.
Well thats if we can believe them, they like alot of click bait articles and claim things that many times end up being false. That being said they have been right before and this is not a stretch. If its true it just means its going to make the card that much better and make AMD look a bit foolish for not at least putting an 8pin connector on the card.

Waterblocks for this card are fine. People like water cooling even medium end products so I see no problem with this especially if an RX 480X comes later the design can be reused. Either way you don't have to go all in on a card to want to water cool it.

I would be very interested to see how this influences overclocking results.
On the current card it seems they pushed the clocks as far as they could within the safety margin leaving no room for OCing.
But with this there maybe some room.

That's one game...Not the average...So the truth actually is...

It is better than the 970. Its exactly where everyone has been saying it is, in between the 970 and 980 performance wise (Or for AMD, between the 390 and the 390X). Its also on a pretty premature driver as this is the first card from this generation so performance will as with any card regardless of the company go up as time moves on.

Interesting, a $130 water block for a last-gen speed card that should cost $150. I can't imagine they'd sell many of these blocks. I agree that they probably got fooled a bit by the pre-release hype. Putting a water block on anything slower than a 980ti or 1070 seems pretty silly.

As it turned out, the 480 is more of a next-gen version of the 380, and people wouldn't watercool that.

Agreed! RX480 on water will reach stock 980Ti probably...

You're quite the optimist. It's need to be 33% faster in performance. That's quite some ask....

Let's not get too ahead of things and start more hype. If it overclocks past 980ti, it beats Fury X too. It's not high end.

It will have it's niche, if the reference model had a second 6pin connector for extra power you could propably get some decent clocks with a water cooler on it.

From what I've seen, the RX 480 gains a lot when overclocked when compared to the previous 28nm R9 range. The tiny stock cooler heatsink and 150w power limit really hold back this card. It makes no sense to put a water block on the reference designed PCB. A water block on an aftermarket PCB with 8pin power would be great. It would be R9 Fury performance for much less money.

However, the aftermarket coolers are coming very soon. Look out for custom boards with added power connectors. I think the RX 480 will be very similar to the R9 290 launch, but even better with better cooling.

I think they were also fooled by the AMD performance claims.
Otherwise, I don't see the point of this block.

Who would pay 200$ on a card and 100$ on a cooler, considering the overclocking is not even that great?
I for one am surprised that EK would produce a waterblock for such a low cost card. It seems like the cost would put the user into a higher tiered video card.

If its true it just means its going to make the card that much better and make AMD look a bit foolish for not at least putting an 8pin connector on the card.
Ed from Sapphire said the Nitro version will have an 8-pin connector, but that the 8-pin is unnecessary!
I'm guessing the user can decide to use only a 6-pin to insert in the slot.
