Passively Cooling A Radeon RX 480 Polaris GPU

This build was around replacing the dead fan on the reference Radeon RX 480.

It is a fairly smooth process... The instructions were a mess to deal with and didn't include the heatsink holes to use for the RX 480/580 models, but the updated instructions for newer graphics cards can be found at

With the mess of instructions and it being such a universal GPU cooler, I basically went with it and my own approach for getting everything to work right with this graphics card for cooling this Polaris GPU.

And it ended up working out fine after this install process of ~15 minutes.
