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.
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?

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!
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.
