The issue with Fiji is how voltage increase starts affecting scaling.
I spent so long:-
a) trying to get past it with bios mod.
b) benching with different settings.
c) also went through 11 Fiji cards, (1X Tri-X, 2x Nitro, 8x Fury X).
Some what the reasoning for me to do the 250+ Fury X 3DM benches
was down to this. Due to the number of cards I also had I had a nice spread of differing LeakageID GPUs to test (ASIC Quality).
Been a while since I compared Fiji to another card, IIRC with Tess.Tweak it gets closer to a 980 Ti in 3DM, but don't believe me
I've kept it, as it is just such a nice "package". The AIO is sweet IMO and complemented by rig setup well. Even after having had it since Mar 16, everytime I see it I like go "Ahhh, nice...". I can't recall as small a length card that has decent performance for my gaming needs and f@h. The amount of hours I've clocked up on my card is obscene.
The AIO piping is resilient as well IMO, I had one card come were it was pretty much folded over. I still ran it for a week before RMA'ing it, many of them I folded on for like 100hrs+ continuous runs.

Well here's one of ~174hrs straight run on f@h via my Q6600 rig (CPU/mobo had since 2007
, still rocking it in 2017).HWiNFO log for run
Now that's what I call stability
