Would be really interested in seeing a review of this. Navi without thermal constraints of the stock cooler I feel like would be considerably faster.

Looks just like the Vector block I have on my VII, nice piece.


NBD: it certainly benches faster (VII), that's for sure. HBM can be OCed too, but it's capped at 1200mhz for the memory clock OC (stock is 1000). Without that water block, hitting over 2000 on the core would have been impossible. If I recall, it's about a 2000 point difference in Time Spy between stock air and 2100mhz core/1200mhz HBM at higher voltage under water. Massive difference.

Its a love or hate thing. EK make all their blocks look the same across all brands and models.

Personally I like that idea since I could swap to AMD and still enjoy the same beautiful blocks they produce. Others may call it lazy and lack of creativity. Suppose it also helps keep design costs down.

I have become obsessed with wanting to see a block with black nickel plating or black gloss and lit up with white lighting. Don't ask me why but i just need to see one. EK are you reading this??? hook me up

9/10 reviews I've seen have the VII as faster and quite considerably in some scenarios, Or did I misunderstand your comment ?

He's saying AMD cards(or at least VII & Navi) bench faster with a block on

Yeah I want to see one of these on water to see what they do, desperate to see the AIB cards, Noise is awful on the stock cooler in a test bench (open air) so anything will be an improvement even the same clocks just quieter.

Exactly this. Even with that 3 fan cooler, heat is a major issue with Navi. That cooler LOOKS substantial, FEELS like a quality piece, but doesn't do the job. Howls like a vacuum cleaner, and the card throttles. But unleash that potential, and it's a different story.
