In actual terms, none of the block will make the water level higher. This is because, while in the boat, they have a larger effect on the water level and they are raising it. But, when they are dropped in the water, they will actually make the water level drop. But, the iron block will make the water level drop much less than the gold block because it is lighter and will have less effect on the water from the boat but will displace the same amount of water as the gold one when dropped into the water.

If they have EXACTLY the same dimensions: L X W X H, then they must have the same volume. Hence, they will displace EXACTLY the same amount of water, which equivalent to their volumes.
