Thanks for the info!
I've had the XFX Fury-X since launch day. My card came with the original pump design exhibiting the pump whine, but they acknowledged the issue with a revised pump. I didn't pursue the option to replace the pump and my card has since lost the noise.
Performance has been great for me. I usually run games in native 3440x1440 resolution if the game supports it. It runs most games on highest settings at 60 FPS, but I typically change some options like AA or disabling Gameworks.
Some may say that the 4GB of HBM might not be a wise choice, but I haven't run into any issues being limited by the 4GB at my native resolution so far. The card runs cool and quiet, and I don't think that I will ever go back to air cooled GPUs.
If you are looking for an overclocking beast, it might let you down. It's not a huge priority for me, but I do it for fun as a hobby and with the performance it gives at stock, it's not necessary.
I have been extremely satisfied with it for this past year. Performance seems to improve with every driver revision. I think the deal you are mentioning is not bad if you have the right expectations. If you value a cool, quiet and stable card and understand that it is going to underperform compared to a slightly less expensive air cooled 1070 with higher VRAM, you will probably be happy also.
