    Seems ok... for the price range.

    If you're in shop for a 5700XT, avoid the reference blower card at all costs.

    Why is that? My brother picked one up - no issues at all. Temps are fine, as are the clock speeds and the noise. For $100 less than the nearest in stock non-reference model, I'd say it's worth it. Sure - AIB cards have better cooling, however, they are also more expensive, and plagued with their own issues (see MSI's evoke that has inadequate thermal pads on the ram)

    Runs very hot, mate of mine bought 1, ran dogshit hot to the point of throttling but they have a 110’C tjunction max temp on the die from memory. Swapped card to the new super card and temps from the card and inside the case dropped.

    I mean, if you switch from a blower to a standard cooler design you are blowing air around the case instead of out of it - this is why blowers are popular with small case builds... I just don't see how your mate's experience makes any sense. What is your friend measuring the internal temperature of the case with.

    (To be clear, I wouldn't recommend the blower card either)

    The 5700's aren't terrible, but without any RT features are completely obsolete.

    Eh, RT isn't ready for prime time. Will be well into 2021 before anything of substance is happening at performance levels any enthusiast would be happy with.

    Big launch titles for the consoles next year are sure to have some form of RT implemented (as the consoles will have it)

    You're forgetting that hottest point of the card besides the die is the back of the PCB, if you have an efficient cooler design the entire card will be cooler efficiently. If you have hot spots on parts of the card that heat is going to stay there as a heat trap.

    Okay... so let's assume that the blower card is drawing 200watts total, the maximum amount of heat energy it should be able to output into the case is 200w - but the overwhelming majority of it is being blasted out of the back of the case.

    Then you compare to an identical card using a standard dual fan arrangement, also drawing 200watts... but ALL of that thermal energy is being pushed out into the case... how could the blower make the case hotter than the alternative

    Yea sounds like poor airflow in the case, my card never exceeds 85ish in a corsair 400c

    Next you're gonna tell me the core temperature = the temp going into the case...

    Did you even bother reading my original post? Or do I need to point it out for you?

    lol I'd just ignore that stupid AMD fan boy if I were you.. they are delusional.

    Reputable hardware reviewer 1: 5700XT runs super noisy, worst stock cooler we've ever tested.
    AMD fan boys: Grr!!! 5700XT is NOT noisy!!!

    Reputable hardware reviewer 2: 5700XT runs super hot, shutting down while sitting in a game menu.
    AMD fan boys: Grr!!! 5700XT DOESN'T run hot!!!

    riiiight.. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Oh you got me there.
    Your right tho, I should stop spending the $500 a month keeping my 5 year old alive. A new cpu would be so much better would certainly get a lot more game time if he was to just up and stop breathing.
