Personally, I like the idea of a blower (despite general increase in noise). I miss HIS' custom blowers. Owned a HIS 5770 and 7950 and those blowers were great.
I probably should've gotten a new one but what bothered me with newegg was the tax which basically only had it at $30 off. Then started reading on Hynix and Samsung memory and was thinking if i could get one with Samsung memory i'd be better off. Came across a guy that has good reviews, says it was "for professional use only" i messaged him asking what that entailed, but $250 to my door was hard to turn down.

I should be able to put an EK backplate on it with a Bykski water block on it with the EK backplate right? I mean i found EK for like $150 but still pricey for a block IMO.

I mean, the holes are all standard, there should be no reason for it not to fit.

I'm in the same boat as you. Vega 56's were pretty cheap on the local second hand market just before Navi announcement. I saw a couple go as low as 150€, but they seemed a bit suspicious. Grabbed one for 180€. With Samsung memory. Haven't tried overclocking it properly because the card's just begging for better cooling, but it undervolts alright. Holds stock boost at 1v, memory is stable at 950Mhz. Waiting for now is my Barrow block to get delivered. All in all, for ~250€ total I don't think I can complain.

Definitely hard to turn down, and, yeah, the tax thing is never cool. BUT...for peace of mind knowing that if there is an issue I can return it relatively easy and get taken care of, plus a warranty, is also hard to pass on. Haha Granted I'm playing the Hynix-Samsung lottery, I don't plan to do too much other than undervolt and maximize boost. Wasn't planning on flashing the V64 bios.

But I feel ya!

That's what i was thinking i don't see why it wouldn't fit. Reviews for Bykski's stuff seems legit. It's $25 cheaper than the EK. Though what is $25 in the long run?

Yeah i just wanted to maximize performance and be sitting at 1080 levels of performance. My thing was the MSI airboost had pretty terrible reviews too granted not that many reviews but it worried me, then block compatibility was another thing. I know the EK fits wasn't sure about the Bykski. Warranty is a huge plus and now kind of feeling dumb for not spending $30 more in the long run for warranty and saying above what is $25 in the long run lol. I will say though in the past i've had far better results sticking reference PCB with AMD than AIB, less it's a specialty card like a lightening. Going to see what it will hit.

"Pretty terrible reviews"!!! Don't make me start second-guessing myself, too! Hahaha JK! My take away from the negative reviews were that it's not plug-n-play friendly but shines when undervolted. And whether its Hynix or Samsung is about 50/50.

I also got the free Division 2 Gold Edition and World War Z but I'm probably not going to ever play those games and apparently I have to subscribe to Uplay if I wanted Division 2 and you can't just sale the key due to some form of hardware validation. I didn't even realize I was getting them until I was checking out so it's whatever. Haha

Yeah i figured the same but idk i went through XFX 7970s so i'm always a little weary but given the the reputation of Vega you're probably right it's nothing to worry about MSI is good company as well. I'll take the division 2 off your hands if you don't want it haha i think it only works if you have Vega or something like that?

It looks like all new AMD cards (at least rx580/590 and Vegas). I'll keep you in mind.

Please do just ordered the Bykski block.

What's a good goal to hope for for Vega 56 on water? 1600/1000?

but performance wise, focusing on Undervolting, it seems performing slightly better than the 1080Hybrid I had but falls behind by a good 15% on FPS vs the 1080Ti

In synthetic benchmark like Firestrike, the VEGA manages to score around 25,200points but my Ti reaches easily 30,000points

Will do some more overclocking over the weekend but I was hoping for something closer to 27,000points, it might be now a bit unrealistic here.

I have managed to get my 3 1080p monitors to output at their max refersh rate of 75hZ(3 of them are freesync) and will test the Freesync feature in Games, which was one the main drivers to go back to try AMD

One thing I have noticed and its annoying, after setting EYEFINITY res at 5760x1080 over the 3 screens, I cant find a way to toggle to single screen unless I discard the Eyefinity set-up but then have to set it again

I thought I could make use of Windows key+P to toggle projection display 3 vs 1 screen quickly, like it does with NV Surround, but it doesn't work.
Anybody here knows a fix for that?
I think your best bet is to submit complaint to AMD and suggest they add this feature

But can it run.... Angry Birds???

ImHO

You can have (range):

1600-1668 or even 1700MHz (With good cooling)
and w/Samsung HBM up to 1120MHz (Use Mem Timing Tweak instead of getting more than 1150MHz)
