Aqua Computer announces the upcoming availability of its kryographics RX 480 waterblock. The basic copper version ships next week for 99.90EUR while the nickel-plated edition can be bought for 114.90EUR about two weeks from now.
The kryographics RX 480 is completely CNC manufactured. The production takes place in Aqua Computers own production facilities in Germany. The base is made of electrolytic copper with a thickness of 10mm.
A precise manufacturing allows using thermal grease not only for the GPU but also for the RAM. This ensures the best possible connection between the graphics card and cooler. For the voltage regulators a thermal pad is included in the scope of supply.
The area above the GPU features a jet plate that pushes water into two directions through a micro structure. A side channel routes water towards the VRMs.
Preinstalled nickel plated spacers allow for an easy and secure installation. All relevant contact surfaces are polished to gain a perfect heat transfer. The connection terminal is made of Delrin and can be replaced with kryoconnect adapter kits to connect several blocks with each other.
Shipping of the copper variant will start next week. In about two weeks the kryographics RX 480 will be also available as nickel plated variant.
