I just got one of the dual fan XFX Vega 56 cards, and I do not recommend this thing to anyone. It has the original Vega problem with the TIM beind hard as a rock and not touching the HBM because the stacks are lower than the GPU die, and even if you repaste and flood it so it makes contact, the fans are so excessively loud that you could only dream for the silence of a blower. This thing is all around terrible, and to add insult to injury their tiny "custom" PCB has no water blocks available and it coil whines worse than any card I've ever heard in 20+ years of doing this.
