jamaican voodoo Hi just purchase my R7 it replaces my RX 5700 XT which I gave to my 11yr old kid, any I love it so far over clock it easily with on ek waterblock. 2000 core 1200 mem @ 1.090v, the main reason why love amd card is their superior graphics and color Quilty, nvidia looks like crap to be frank I really don't like nothing they make but it just could be my bias coming through.

I used an EK block on my VII and was sitting at 2175/1275 MHz for core and mem respectively at 1200mV. It got up to like 80C+ when under water but was rock solid stable. For benchmarking i could push 2210/1300 Mhz or so @1218 mV.

Typically i ran at 2100/1250 @1075 mV for every day gaming and junction temps never hit 60C. It was a nice slight undervolt (stock was 1083 mv) with an additional 300 MHz was great for gaming. I HIGHLY reccomend these cards for those with watercooling. I would regularly beat overclocked 2080 Supers in the non Nvidia biased benchmarks and gaming FPS for most games.

I ended up getting an insane deal on a 2080Ti EVGA FTW3 Hydroblock so I havent played with my R7 in a few months but I still have it lying around! Once ryzen 4000 comes out ill probably build another rig with my current 3950X using this Radeon VII.

My 3900x/Rad VII combo is fun. Not as fast as the 9900k/2080TI rig but what is at this stage?
I was a bit sceptical about it, but seems stable for real. 4th day so far with the 20.4.1 and not a crash. What is even funnier about it is that now, I can do some light overclock in the gpu that I could not before. I've got a list of clock/voltage combinations I've tried, the ones stable the ones not stable, and right now I'm doing 1965/1025/1105mV since yesterday and not a single crash.

Dasa 2080 Super wasn't available at the time I purchased the Radeon VII.
On water the R7 is faster than 2080 and competitive with the more expensive overclocked 2080 Super at 3440x1440.
Putting it on water didn't cost me anything since I used a 16y old CPU block making it easily the best value option for gaming available to me that was a decent upgrade over the 1070.

The premium for the better heatsink on the RTX card is worth it for many.
At launch sure, I even said it was the better card for gamers - and at the same price point I'd agree even now. But for $100-$200 less and all the benefits the card has otherwise..? Yea, I'll deal with the less then amazing cooler. I lived with reference blower cards just fine. I also use headphones so couldn't really care less either way.

At $699 the 2080 or 2080S isn't worth the premium and you may as well just grab a 2070 Super.

thomasck Well guys, I hope I'm not wrong about this, but I need to confess something. This whole time complaining about 2020 drivers, and some 19.x.x drivers were all my fault. From the whole time being using the RVII I was always saying the only drivers not crashing were 19.5.2, 19.7.5 and 19.11.3. And was true.

I've tried the 2020 a bunch of times and well, crashes after crashes even with the card running stock clocks and voltage.

But few days ago I've ran ramtest/karhu and after one hour and half it had found an error, and I correlated that with my crashes in games straight away.
Note that none of the others ram testers ever catched any errors, hci, tm5, memtest etc. So I upped the ram voltage by couple of notches, from 1.450 to 1.465, ddued gpu and chipset drivers and well, one, two, three matches of codmw/bf5 and zero crashes. Applied my usual oc, 1950/1025/1118mV and no crashes either. Then I did overwrite that oc with 1965/1025/1118mV which used to crash here and there, two more days playing and also, no crashes!
20.4.1 has been released two days ago, ddued 20.3.1, installed 20.4.1, went straight to 1965/1025/1118mV (which is the stock voltage) and not a single crash so far in two days using 20.4.1.
I just hope this is not a coincidence, or nor the card taking a piss at me again being fully stable for some time and then letting me down like before.
