I have also seen problems crop up after only a few months of use

Re: Guess whos Radeon VII packed it in out of no-where.. This guy

I bought 12 of these on ebay for mining in May. Different "brands" but most from AMD.com.  To this day only 8 are still alive. I lost three early on and was able to return them to the sellers on ebay. I am a pc veteran and have never lost a piece of hardware due to mishandling. This got me wondering though! I had three fail right away... Until a few days ago (about 6 months into ownership) another one just failed... Now its way too late to try to return on ebay and I am out a stupid amount of money. I tried getting AMD to fix one that I know came from their website but they will not help me because I didnt purchase it directly from them... I believe that this card is so poorly built/designed (not sure which) that they had to stop manufacturing it. My only hope now is a class action law suit... Also several of the others (still running) have a dead fan and I cannot find a replacement anywhere. Yes I am complaining... because what else can I do?

I personally don't  think its VII in general. I also lost 3 56 and 2 Vega 64

all of them had HBM2 memory issues... 

I find that memory to be really unstable and super sensitive to "heat" conditions even under idle loads..

never once has I have OC a GPU or a CPU and thses are just dieing out of normal use.. it kind blows my mind..,
