skline00 My EK waterblock has been solid.

Gregix yup
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.

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.

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.

Very happy with my EK waterblock.
A user on this forum reported a possible bad EK waterblock that grilled his card though..

thomasck Anyone having freezing issues with COD Warzone with the latest driver, 20.3.1?

Just reverted to 19.12.3 and is better apparently.

Edit

No it's not better, plus the iron sight is pixelated. But that seems to be a game issue.

Dasa My card is also a 1137-1143mv card and while it is not the best clocker out there partially due to power limits still existing even with powertune profiles it is not bad and still does very well on water as you will see if you look back over some of my posts.

duox7142 RMAed my Radeon VII, and the new one came in! I'm happy to report no crashes yet on 19.5.1. the normal triggers of game crashing have failed to replicate an issue.

The only sad part of this card is the stock voltage, at 1.14v. the original card was 1.04v. so this new one runs very loud and can very easily temp throttle. I've accelerated my plans to watercool it now.

I don't know if this is still true, but there used to be a tool that would test the ASIC quality of the card. Some cards had a lower score, and would be able to have lower voltage stability per clock. However the cards that were of the lower quality needed more voltages, yet if you could cool off the excessive heat (water-cooling) they potentially had more headroom. Is that still true?
