Heyyy so I see you have been struggling a lot with this GPU, soo if you would be that kind and tell me if u see any big problems with it ? I kinda spontaneous ordered it and well, there are some really reviews that say bad things about it, soo I want to ask u do u have any kind of temperature based problems or any coil whining ? I will most likely do the underclocking thingy in order to prevent such high degrees of C but still, wanna get some answers. Thanks in advance!
Well take this with a grain of salt as mine was previously a miners card with bunk bios on both profiles that required flashing the BIOS, but here's what mine does.
On any modern game, such as the Witcher 3, Star Wars BattleFront 2, and Fallout 76. Using an Undervolt but stock fan settings. The card hit 90C within 30-40 minutes. It runs the games well don't get me wrong but I have little choice but to use MSI Afterburner for it's fan ramp up settings to keep the card around 82C Undervolted, using the "whole ham" settings above.
In my honest opinion, return it. Don't bother with XFX. Get out now before you have one of their crap product stuck in your build.
