    Initial impressions are outstanding! Got a great price on the card and it was the catalyst for my new build. Out of box performance with my set up (lots of air flow) is great. My VRM temps are high however and this card has Hynix memory but most Vega 56 do. Buy Vega 64 if you need Samsung memory. I have already ordered some new thermal pads to redo Asus' poor installation. I knew all this however before I bought the card. I am giving it 4 stars because it could be so much better. With proper cooling and thermal solutions as well as undervolting this card can perform at/near GTX 1080 levels. Freesync2 works great with the BenQ EX3203R. Its a match made in heaven and does truly provide that next level of immersion!

    UPDATE: After 3 months I have absolutely no complaints about this card. With a simple undervolt this card performs great at stock but there is lots to squeeze out of this card if that's your thing. First thing I did was replace thermal pads and paste. This dropped the VRM temps by almost 20c! Core and HBM stayed within error of margin even using Thermal Grizzly TIM. So my experience is no need to replace the stock TIM but replacing thermal pad make a big difference. Next thing I did was remove the stock shroud/fans and replaced them with 2 120mm installed using a PCI fan bracket. (Added a picture of "mods"). This works great in my set up. Better cooling and less noise, love it! I have also flashed the BOIS to a Vega 64. I did notice that once I flashed to the 64 BIOS I boosted WAY past the number set in WattMan, so the undervolt/OC was more difficult then stock.

    CONCLUSION: Rating stands at 4 stars for the average user; if u tinker 5+ stars!

    Final setting are as follows; S6 1567 mHz @ 1000mV in WattMan (960mV reported from HWiN) S7 1622 mHz @1075mV in WattMan (1040mv, Boost clock ~1650mHz, and ~1600 mHz sustained) Mem @ 1000 Time Spy Graphics score of 7214

    Running good enough for me, no complaints! RGB looks good. 10/10!

    This ROG model is comparable to Sapphire's premium Nitro series in the sense that it has 2 fan headers and a RGB controller on the card itself!

    If it wasnt for these two features I would have sold this card long ago. Why? Its VRM area heats up like crazy, the fan placement helps now. But the GPU area is still hot AF. Makes me nervous when it heads up the tempered glass. I plan to install a 140mm Cryorig fan which has 100+CFM so that the GPU area stays cool too.

    Can't believe I got this for $230, quality of the packaging and the GPU was great. Plays all my games no problemo. Can get a bit loud sometimes and the lighting color accuracy is a bit off though, still an amazing card for the money.

    Fantastic GPU. might not be the best choice to have in H200i with a 240mm AIO
