EK releases AMD® Radeon™ RX 480 Full-Cover water block
EK Water Blocks, Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is excited to launch the true single-slot liquid cooling solution for AMD® Radeon™ reference design RX 480 graphics card.
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!
Two Plexi variants – EK-FC RX-480 (left) and EK-FC RX-480 – Nickel (right)
Two Acetal variants – EK-FC RX-480 – Acetal (left) and EK-FC RX-480 – Acetal+Nickel (right)
The base is made of electrolytic copper (bare- or nickel-plated, depending on the variant) while the top is made of either acrylic- or POM Acetal material. Plexi variants also feature two pre-drilled slots for 3mm LED diodes. Screw-in brass standoffs are pre-installed and allow for safe, painless installation procedure.
These water blocks are made in Slovenia, Europe and are available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. An aesthetic retention backplates (Black and Nickel variant), which also cool the backside of the circuit board (namely around VRM area), will be available for purchase in the next two weeks.
