Can water cooling alone increase GPU performance?



Read more on EK's RX Vega 64 water cooling research.

From what I can see online, the best increase to performance actually comes from HBM2 overclocking moreso than core speeds. Probably due to the infinity fabric. Would have been nice if EK also included HBM overclocking in there research

Your point? They still didn't say anything about it in there tests. They just mentioned it in a picture.

Still doesn't have a quantifiable answer to my original question.
I already know it improves it. But I wanted to see HOW MUCH under water
