My last asus card was a 6800 Ultra, wouldn't clock 1mhz over stock. Never bought an Asus card again to this day. The rampage board I thought was by far the best out of all X99 models smoked my above average 5960X. No more asus boards for me.

This should be investigated because we all know it was Drivers that caused the issues not AIB vendors.

Apparently it was pressure of screws, not software. Apparently Asus has never ever in a million years made graphics cards with awful cooling.... Ever ......

ASUS admits screws weren't properly torqued, and yet people scramble for other things to blame. Even if you're joking, it's a terrible joke.

I wonder how many of the other AIB cooling issues can be chalked up to crappy pads and improperly tightened screws? It would explain why slapping a block on 5700XT is more beneficial than usual.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I think in one of the newer AMD drivers, torque ratings are included

Ever since Radeon 7 (jokes aside) for some reason these gpus need to be torqued more. Nvidia does not seem to have the issue. AMD has always used that mounting back bracket.

After thinking that Asus was funny blaming AMD for their own incompetence than a Mod deleting my matter of fact statement (for "some" reason), I'll have someone else make the statement for me:


If it wasn't for some honest reporting and despite Asus having tried to pressure Hardware Unboxed to bury the video where would this issue have remained? A hint, ignored and buried.

Please Mods delete this truth too since Asus might be calling again.

Optimus claims its an issue for both, thus why their back plate is MANDATORY to prevent flexing.

Back plate should be mandatory on every mid/high end gpu whether it's nVidia or AMD. I saw many cards bend out of their original shape over time due to a combination of heat and weight.
