Well I'm still glad I got the RVII even though it's been sitting in it's box for a few months. I should have a 3600 to pair with it pretty soon for a living room gaming computer. I'm really hoping that the software has evolved over the last few months because that's the reason I decided to take it out of my system, overclocking was needlessly annoying with things not working properly or reporting incorrectly. If it's still a pita to overclock it then I will demote it to work duty and let it live the rest of it's life never getting to stretch it's legs.
Supposedly a leaked 5600 showed itself, if true, we may have a 5900 sooner rather than later. I dont think AMD would let Nvidia control the $700 tier by themselves if they have the card to go. I will keep the Vega VII, but i'm already looking forward to the highend Navi.
I got my VII on day 1 and when EK released their block i bought one immediately. After installing the block, the card ran for a day before it got DEAD
I reinstalled the stock cooler and sent it back for RMA. Few days later i got my new VII. Now few months later i still have not installed the block.
I have installed maybe 20+ VGAs in a CL but never had any fail. So im still afraid something happens again. Dunno it was the card or it was me this time
