I'm happy to help if I can. Thank your for your kind words.
Send it back immediately and make him pay the shipping this time! The RX 5700 XT is 14% faster than the RX 5700. I had a feeling that he wasn't trustworthy, that's why I suggested that you just keep the one you had. What he just sent you constitutes fraud.Now i have finally recieved the new card.
Well, he asked me if he can send a "xfx thicc 2 5700 xt" instead of the mentioned sapphire. I agreed but in the end he sent a "XFX RX 5700 DD Ultra" (non XT) ...
Yes, it's worse. It's a slower card.Overall it wouldnt have been that worse as it reaches still ~16500 passmark instead of ~19000 from 5700XT powercolor and a lot lower temps (~ -10-20°c) and noise (coil whine is gone aswell).
Danny, send that card back. This guy has now lied to you twice! First he says he'll send you an XFX RX 5700XT THICC-II and instead he sends you an XFX RX 5700 Double Dissipation? That's not only a lower-tier card, it's the lowest-tier XFX model.Even it does look pretty new i have some annoying issues. One of the fans stops spinning and i have to use pressure on it to make contact and spin again (happens often on high rpm) and i get black screens while running passmark (~1 passmark was sucessful from 7 attempts). I have not tested it for work or games, maybe its fine there though.
That is literally impossible. DDU cannot break anything. Also, you didn't need to change the drivers because Radeons use the same driver package from the Polaris cards all the way to RDNA2.Maybe i broke something with running DDU shortly before installing xfx 5700 to get rid of 5700 XT drivers.
No, he LIED to you, sent you the wrong card and wrong XFX model.I think i was pretty unlucky this time. Probably the card gots damaged while transport, or he sent me damaged card i dont know. Whatever, im trying to fix the fan tomorrow maybe it helps with the black screens aswell.
None of this matters Danny, you have to send the card back. You've been SCAMMED!Edit: I tried amd adrenaline stresstest, i noticed max consumption of Rx 5700 is only around 100 watt. Maybe there is an issue with pciE cables or psu.
Edit2: i calculated the max wattage of my build, it should be fine: ~333W
