I got my RADEON VII card a week ago and I have already installed the card in my new system. I have also finished my new all EKWB custom loop with 2 560 rads. I plan to go with 4 560 rads since my case is big enough to handle them and just be on the secure side and feature proof. I didn't had to install a single 45 or 90° angle, so flow should be pretty high on this loop. it has paid off that I have used 16/10 soft tubing.
now all I need is a waterblock for the gpu.
I have to say it's a very good card, it's the best AMD card i ever had. i have upgraded from 2 XFX Fury X in crossfire to 1 Radeon VII and I got now more performance than before with the 2 cards. the VII runs up to 1845 Mhz and is quiet, I can't hear the card from my case ventilators spinning only at 600 rpm, temps are around 59° C (my old 2 Furys run at around 40°C, so this card runs a little bit hotter) and the card is using around 216 watts. I never thought an air-cooled card could be so quiet. i play at 4K on a 32" 60 Hz Ips Hdr monitor locked to 59 fps Ingame, I never seen the fps go lower than that. all that hype the card is loud, hot, has no performance is mostly exaggerated. you can't compare artificial tests with the real life practice. my breathing is louder than my case fans and the VII fans. I only had problems installing the Radeon Settings software from the AMD driver. I had to boot into safe mode and install the driver twice. so far I also never had any driver crash or similar problems, all games run as smooth as possible. thank you AMD and EKWB for the great products. finally it was worth to upgrade the system.
P.S. I like the design and look of EKWB cpu waterblocks, gpu blocks and the pump and reservoir. (I've got the 400ml version) I also like the RGB and it's compatibility to AURA Sync.
I just wish EKWB would make a 140mm Led Red and Led RGB fan with rpms between 400-2000 and high static pressure and air flow. And maybe EKWB could make a PWM 9 x fan hub/splitter and a 5/6 channel fan touchscreen controller with 15/30 watts per channel and link channels together features. I had to use a fan controller and fan hub from somewhere else, but somehow you have to control 32 fans if you go with 4 560 rads in push/pull config.
And maybe EWKB could make a 560 rad in 60mm thickness?
