The whole reason I got the sapphire pulse was because of the memory cooler, the metal plate around cooler. It helps not having to tape heat sinks.
Thank you for the looks good, Its like I try to keep up with the 200.00+ water cooler looks but, some look really good, but after 5 or so system builds, its like enough, cant afford to keep doing this. Check into rehab, the addiction is too much.
It seems that the temps are hot because of chip. Not memory. I thermal taped a temp sensor and have never seen heat sink on memory go above 40 C
Also The koolance water blocks are notorious for being good, may help. Every one reporting 100 c + temps not even at full overclock has to help. it does 2150, no problems in benchmarks. Some times games make it finiky though. Have to set exact 2100
Did supperpostion bench at 4k came out 7900 set max at everything. there was only 1 other score posted in that area. In the bench it hit 70 fps 4k, which is good at a 60htz monitor. But the games are getting more demanding so looking for new gen of navi more cores, and memory.
I guess it will cost a little extra for water cooling but never work about heat 100 c is hot, and can sell it later and say the chip never went above 45 c. improved longevity
I'll post the prove it benchmark, just no arguing, I never post results afraid it will break out into a fight.
Good part its up there with 1080 ti, and 2070 super and only 800 points ahead is the 2080. Couldn't ask for more from a 400.00 Gpu. I hope they keep making them like this in the price range. 4k Life saver. Come out 10 frames ahead of monitor. With new card support, warranty. RELIEF. Can Sleep at night.
