Would be cool to see the results before we finally get the aftermarket cards.

Timmy Joe showed off an RX 5700 with a Visiontek R9 390 cooler on it, apparently R9 290/390 coolers are mostly compatible with the RX 5700 (and presumably the 5700 XT as well).

He didn't do any games benchmarks just some Firestrike testing.
Here's a link to the video if you want to watch the whole thing: https://youtu.be/D3AoenEBM2E

They were doing some interesting things on air back in the day. It might not look pretty, but I would bet money it works, and performs far better than any OEM AMD cooler. Those are nothing but junk, even the supposedly "high quality" one on the Radeon VII.

Its cheap and it works. If you bought this in 2008 you will still have a very competitive cooler with aftermarket designs plus it would have easily paid for itself as you would only ever need reference design cards as you already got a cooler.

No point in changing what works. Function over form.

It's not cheap. It's usually £50 or more and then you needed VRM plates to fit your card.

It works? I guess so, but, this isn't 2008 where you had a blue mobo with white orange and green slots on it. People care about how their PC looks now as well.

All they needed was a more modern shroud, with black fans not white ones. That's very assumptive that every one has a PC with white in it. Whereas I can pretty much guarantee that every one has a PC with at least some black in it.

See? the difference that makes? it shows your users you at least care about the products you're bashing out.

The only company who truly don't care, and have done well because of it, is Noctua. Yet even they have now made covers and etc to colour code to a PC.
