A $100+ (most likely) for mid range card that sells for $240? I would much rather get a better cooler running card for that money difference. Say a 1070?

Who the heck is dropping $200 graphics card/cards in an open loop cooled machine??

Ya. Issue there if you are paying the same for an RX480 as you are a vanilla 1070. Unless there is some INSANE overclocking that gets enabled by the temp drops (and it contains enough pins).

From what I've seen so far in reviews, there's pretty much zero overclock room left power wise on the card with reference builds....are you really gaining anything out of increasing the cooling potential? Why not just spend more on a higher end card?

There seems to be a issue with bois. The card us pulling more power than it should and it's throttling as a result. Thus review has the fixed bois I believe and it's much much faster and using only 116w max load. Still couldn't oc well though

The top is made from stainless steel. We also have a GTX1080/1070 version coming next week.
