Don't hope too much. RX 480 temperature with reference cooler is still around 80 C which isn't alarming. It seems to the limit from the GPU itself.

Did you see that cooler on the reference model on post #17?

Now I'm really stumped.... wait and get non reference 480s or for the same price get a 1070.

Non reference wont be at the same price of a 1070 and if its the case CF ref 480 looks like a better choice

I saw it sir.
Polaris 10 is a small GPU even when compared to nearly the nearly 7-year-old Cypress.
But the temp of RX 480 itself from various reviews is still around 80 C which isn't so alarming.
The temp is not much different than Cypress GPU despite the not so good looking cooler.
That means the reference cooler still has some room for overclocking if you cranked up the fan and ignore the noise to check the limit of the GPU itself.
This isn't like Radeon R9 290 and 290X which operate at 95 C with reference cooling.
Their overclocking potential was clearly limited by thermal solution.

so.. we are in agreement and my hope for better OC potential is not misplaced thumb.gif

I don't think it is, some reviews mentioned the temps getting out of hand when raising the power limit more than a little, so possibly with a sufficiently increased power limit and some extra voltage better OC's might not be out of the question.
