I have a rx 480 Gaming X 8gb and I am looking to passively cool it. I am open to tearing down the card and wouldn't like to spend more than 80 USD. EDIT: I am fine with undervolting and even underclocking the card a bit. I have the Corsair 400c as my case.

Have you looked at the Arctic Accelero S3?

I still wouldn't recommend it though, since the 480 will probably start to hit a thermal bottleneck if you don't have at least some sort of fan circulating air in the case. (If you use a test bench instead of an enclosure, perhaps you could get away with ambient airflow.)

I saw it in this review but it got a peak temperature of 93C during a gaming load. I am looking at the raijintech MORPHEUS II CORE EDITION as it has double the TDP of the Artic Accelero S3.

Hmm, it's not too clear if it will work with the RX480, in terms of physical compatibility.

Also, I don't see any max TDP recommendation for fanless use.
