EK has released water blocks for reference RX 480. Which cover all critical areas on the GPU, with GPU core, memory and the VRMs for maximum cooling.
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 water block features EK unique central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance and the central inlet orientation is the same as the GPU core. Such system also works flawlessly with the reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic performance, allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. Unlike the original cooling solution that comes with AMD® Radeon™ RX 480 and takes up two slots, EK-FC RX-480 water block will transform the RX 480 into a single-slot graphics card!
The EK-FC RX-480 will be available in 4 different variants. The block will feature EK’s innovative Split-flow cooling engine design which offers decreased resistance to fluid flow. This design also allows using the water block efficiently in a reverse flow scenario with no negative side effect.
