So they released a card with a different color air cooler that still sucks and holds the cards performance back. Sounds legit, will not be missed. :D

I have seen "my" version of that holy grail, but it's like $3500CDN here, LOL! I own like 7 monitors, and the Asus ROG Swift PG35VQ 35" is "on paper" my perfect display. [email protected] with HDR10...

At these clocks, it's running cool as a cucumber, but that's more down to the Barrow GPU block than the ghetto modding. :D But I think that actually dropped the core by a small margin, maybe 2-3C....

I re-pasted my old reliable Radeon VII with Kingpin KPX, and used some extra thermal pads on the back plate too. Then I did something super silly with 3mm of Fujipoly and a 20mm heatsink, ghetto...

It runs pretty amazing on the 6900XT at first glance, once you turn off ray tracing that is. That was a horror show, LOL!

I haven't even started playing CP2077 yet, been waiting for the kinks to be worked out. After seeing that 28GB update last night, I wonder if now is the time to give my new 6900XT a workout!

I have a 43" ultrawide, and you do need to sit back a bit, but it doesn't feel as big in front of you as specs would have you believe. But if I had a do-over, I would drop back to a 35" for sure....

Yeah that was my bad, didn't mean to come across like a complete snob, apologies to Dawelio. Having to work in a loud data centre for the past few days aggravated my tinnitus and made me cranky!

I wonder if these will have mysterious 'blackout' issues too. Not sure if those plague the 6800XT, but some of us with 6900XTs are having blackout problems, very strange stuff. Fingers crossed that...

If you're that poor that you can't afford decent thermal paste, you're in the wrong hobby, LOL! :D Cost should NEVER be a factor in something so cheap.

Alphacool released a block for the Asus TUF 6800XT that just so happens to fit the 6900XT too. Hallelujah, no more air for this bad boy!

I'm running a 2x16GB kit of TridentZ Neo, 3600 16-16-16-36 (EDIT: same kit posted above). No complaints, but you do pay extra for the tighter timings.

I'm daily driving 3800 at 1:1 with my 2x16GB G.Skill kit (3600CL16), but can't do that with 4 sticks, only 2. I also have a RoyalZ 4x16GB kit at 3600CL16, but that kit will not do 3800, it tops out...
