IDK if they're still available, but I am very pleased with my Phanteks Glacier Radeon VII water block. They were late to the market so it wasn't talked about much, but it is an option other than EK to consider that is also a trusted name.

Looks hella easy and cheap to me.

Radeon VII has a fairly fragile core and is sensitive to even mount pressure which is hard to get right with zip ties.
Some have used CPU AIO with good results but they used screws.
I used a old custom loop CPU block and was able to leave on the stock heat plate which is giving lower junction temps than full cover blocks.

I used screws. Had to do it with some sense. Too much pressure bends card, and results(temps) are actually worse.
Used EVGA CPU AIO, but had to do lots of adjustments, bore holes, etc. Now I would just buy EK block, as they are cheaper. Or whatever. Proper air cooling is good too, as I just do not do OC, no need.

Really nice. Its true a great card when it comes to performance at 4k and i am not going to replace it anytime soon.

The "but" part is that i clearly had to go for watercooling and that my system can handle that card with rather old 19.5.2 driver...
