Talking a bit about the block itself, it makes use of an acrylic cover which lets you see the internals and water flow clearly. The block is composed of a nickel-plated copper base which channels the water flow on top of the GPU and VRAM since Radeon VII has both featured on the same chip that is part of the interposer. The water block has a rated thermal efficiency of 401W/mK. There's also proper channeling over the MOSFETs area to keep the electrical components and power delivery running smooth. BYKSKI also mentions that the block will support its digital module that can be purchased separately and display real-time temperatures.
