I think My heat issues I suspect are from my case , the maserbox 5 pro is NOT a good case for airflow do not buy !!!

 

off topic, but is the 3 fans in front not enough airflow?!? What more do you need for air lol.

 

On a side note the Vega cards are known to run hot. but it looks like you got a deal with the 3 games and for the price it beats a RTX 2060. Ray-Tracing is useless on the lower end cards anyways. Last AMD card I owned for gaming was a Radeon 4870. Its been a few years. Actually I bought a 290X at one point for mining. Never used it for any games though.

 

I have a evga clc 280 in front and even when a had a gtx 1080 ftw hybrid there was not enough airflow , there are no vent on the top of the case so there is nowhere for the air to go except a single 120mm fan at the rear. it is a horrible case for airflow

Glad to hear you're happy with it so far, and I hope you will continue to be. I know I have been quite happy with my Vega 64.

Since you brought up temperatures as a concern, I'm wondering if you have looked into using Radeon Chill? Of course it depends on the game and your personal tastes for things like lowering the frame rate intentionally and how much to allow it to lower, but it can have a very nice impact in some games.

As far as overclocking it, I've never tried overclocking my card, just undervolting it, which is something I see many recommend for Vega, both for just improving temperatures and efficiency, but also as something done in conjunction with overclocking.

Also, it isn't exactly stand alone, but if you want to monitor the GPU, maybe look into the AMD Link app. It can monitor temperature, power, clock speeds, fan speeds, and frame rate from a phone, if it is on the same network as the computer. It is even possible to do some WattMan tweaking through, but I have not messed around with that much.

thank you
