If you can attain rx580 xtr they are solid. Look and feel like a higher end GPU. Decent cooling too. Have one and it's stable and can play almost anything on ultra 1080p with 100fps+

The best one is the PowerColor 580 Red Devil, there's the Golden sample which is hand picked GPUs to run and overclock higher.
Sapphire nitro is also pretty good.

The reviews saying that MSI this time didn't do as good.

Ok but i am on a budget. The MSI one is already 240 euro. Willing to go to 300 but not more.

Which reviews mentions this on MSI cards?

Ok what you guys think of these:

So normally i would go for that MSI Radeaon RX 580 Armor G OC (aroud 230-240 euro)

But what you think of those (all more expensive + 70-80 euro):

- Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8GB NITRO+

- ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX580 8G OC

- Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8GD5 NITRO+ Special Edition (faster mem/gpu? then the nitro+)?
 
From my understanding, the ASRock's cooler is not the best, so the fans tend to run faster/louder.

I've read some people on the forums say that the MSI Armor's cooling is not the best.

I have ZERO experience with ASRock (they're new to the GPU scene, but have been doing motherboards for years), and the last MSI card I had was an MSI Radeon AGP 9550. Budget fanless card, that I bought in 2005. So, effectively no real experience with them.

Sapphire does AMD only, and I've heard good things about them. Again, somewhat dated, but I bought a fanless (big heatsink cooling solution) HD 6670 back in 2012 that still works fine.

BUT... I don't know if I'd pass on the MSI if all the others are adding 70-80€ to the price. That's a huge jump.

Well its only 60 but still

the MSI is around 239, the sapphire is around 300 (so 61+) and the asrock is 309 (+70). the SE of the sapphire is 325 (so +86).

King_V yes , its 60 euro more expensive the Sapphire but higher clocked gpu and mem i think. So not sure if that justify's the price tag

however the msi is pretty bare in terms of fans and cooling around the card, while the others have all cooling included around the fans.
 
Well, I have no experience with the Armor, so can't say if that's a particularly weak point on it, or just a "it does the job, but could be better" kind of thing.

But, as for the higher clock rate, generally not worth that much extra on the price.
