JUST got another RX480 after i sent back mine due to coil whine

This one doesnt overclock as well.

Before i had 1100mv 1385mhz stable
Now i cant even get 1105mv/1355mhz

Is it true that 8 GB cards have superior memory chips to 4 GB cards, in general? I stumbled upon that comment somewhere, and it has me thinking I'm going to go with an 8 GB card (MSI Gaming X). I didn't really try overclocking the memory of my ASUS but if the 4 GB cards have inherently lesser memory chips I'll probably have to go with an 8 GB.

Edit: I will only be gaming in 1080P; would an 8 GB card be completely unnecessary in your opinion? It's a $35 dollar difference between the 4 and 8 GB MSI Gaming X cards.

Just make sure to get a card with 2000/8000 memory clocks. AFAIK there are a few with 1650/6600 default clocks which cant OC well at all as far as memory goes.

In general it seems no matter what brand RX480 you get, their quality is not good! I'm keep seeing too many quality issues which normally you shouldn't have! it looks like a lottery in order to get a card that it should work as it advertised! Myself had issue with Sapphire RX480 Nitro 8gb and I had to request for replacement!

Hello everyone. Im New on this site and im jot sure if i ask the question in The right plače but please forgive me. The thing is, a friend of mine has ms 7728 v 2.0 motherboard with i5 procesor on it. He recently bought rx 480 graphics card, and He cant manage to have picture on monitor. The psu is fine. I recently had same problem with my card and motherboard, allthough i have different one. I solved my problem by flashing bios to The newest version, and it o worked. The problem was that motherboard wasnt sending enough voltage to graphics card. I think here is The same problem. Can anyone tell me am i right, and Can his problem be solved? If yes, what exact version of bios i should install him? Link would be awesome. Thanks in advance

You might be using displays that for Extra image processing over HDMI out DP. Realistically and Technically there is no actual difference in visual quality and if we're talking on the base of bandwidth then HDMI and DP both beat out DVI. Check to make sure your display doesn't process images additionally through your and turn it off if so. This also adds latency if it does.

The MSI RX 480 Gaming X 4G is insane. I had a dud with the ASUS RX 480 Dual OC 4GB, so I returned it to Microcenter and picked up the MSI Gaming X for $15 more, and it is day and night between these two cards.

Out of the box the MSI ran stable at stock 1305 MHz, 1750 MHz memory, at 1.162V and 0.975V respectively. Peak temp is 72 C with the fan only reaching 30-35%; with custom fan settings I can get the peak temp closer to 65 C at 55-65% fan at that point, but I'll take a few degrees of heat for less work on the fan.

Stable overclocks (passed at 5 MHz higher in multiple benchmarks each of Unigine Heaven, Unigine Valley, Fire Strike, Sleeping Dogs)

Core clock from 1305 MHz to 1420 MHz
Mem clock from 1750 MHz to 2250 MHz
Stock voltage settings of 1.162V core and 0.975V memory
Power limit increase to +15%
73 C peak temperature, typically 40% max fan speed at peak temperature

(is there anything in those numbers looks like it would pose long term danger for the card?)

Sometimes the fan will creep past 40% at peak, but generally it stays low and is quiet. I couldn't get the card to not crash at 1.550V and therefore probably won't even try to run it below default. 1.162V seems like such an arbitrary number, and I believe that MSI knew what they were doing and found this to be the lowest voltage that the card could be OCed heavily at. The power draw ranges from 150-190W, 200-205W at HEAVY load, but still the card remains cool. I'll have to put it into practical use by playing games and determining long term stability from there, but it's cleared all tests at 1425 MHz (dialed it back to 1420 MHz after testing) - Heaven, Valley, Fire Strike, Sleeping Dogs benchmark tests multiple times. I might get gully and try Furmark later to see what happens.

From everything I've looked at over the last few days I feel like this is a pretty good overclock and I couldn't be happier. In contrast, this is what I was coming from with the ASUS RX 480 Dual OC 4GB:

-Only ran 1150 MHz at 1.15V out the box despite being set to 1300 MHz; card was throttling itself to 100W peak power draw.
-Raising power limit to +35% held the card at 1300 MHz at 1.15V, BUT the card quickly reached throttling temp of 90 C. Power draw peaked at 135W.
-Card held stable 1300 MHz with a downvolt to 1.10V and +35% power limit, but this left no headroom for overclocking.
-Card got up to 1315 MHz stable at 1.12V, BUT to stay under 75 C I had to run the fan 80% at that point.

I most likely got a lemon and have a hard time believing all the ASUS RX 480 Duals run that poorly. Reviews were generally favorable, so I'll chalk it up to bad luck. After having dealt with that card I still cannot believe the gains I have achieved with the MSI. I'm still in awe at this thing.

What brand is the board because I can't find anything on it and you didn't tell us which rx480, you really left out tons of info so we couldn't really say anything besides maybe you're right?

I don't want to call bull, but you really sure you don't have memory errors at 2250mhz? I'd bet you're but maybe you got done good memory chips.
