Long,but worth the watch.
Advanced AMD RX 480 Overclocking - 1500 MHz using I2C and watercooling - YouTube
The only problem: AMD Radeon RX 480 Custom Models Round Up. Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro+ OC 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Grap… | OcUK shows it being in stock on the 22nd. The other thing of note is that it is [b]exactly the same price[/b] as Sapphire's, ASUS', Gigabyte's, and XFX's reference editions. Will be interesting to see how the custom versions do .
Somethings odd with the pictures in that link.. The asus card in the first picture has an awfully long pcb, and then the lower picture says its a powercolor and you can clearly see the asus rog logo in the picture... I see what they did, they flip flopped the pictures with the paragraghs is all, no biggy..
I think amd should turn these cards loose for the overclockers, make the bios and bios flash utility readily available, have a listing and explanation of the values..
Then again they need to line the drivers out, anytime I try to go into wattman my driver crashes and disappears out of the task bar.
If I were going to pick one of the custom models I think the msi would be it.. MSI always seem to get good chips... I wish msi would get away from all the red all the time, they need to go to rgb with clear/soft white accents and let the rgb leds do their thing
This Isn't the 1st reference I've heard about this "Pcie Issue" being blamed on low end motherboards, been a few review sites saying the same thing. Also I like how he says AMD is just making the Media happy with this driver update LOL.
But I am curious as well to see the custom cards.
Something I haven't seen talked about are people using PSUs with multiple 12v rails capped at 18A (we've already had a thread about that on here). If 12v1 is wired to supply both the ATX and supplementary CPU power connection, and they're using a 125w or 140w processor (which is most any AMD processor and some Intel processors, like the Intel Core i7-5820K), that doesn't leave them enough room to give 70w to the graphics card via the PCIe slot, not after even a couple of fans are attached to the headers.
My reference rx480 has ran benches at 1360/2200, hot and hairdryer loud. lol
Well, Just picked up a set of Gigabyte 7970's off a guy who replaced them with RX 480's in crossfire, he's running Windows 10,No issues whatsoever with the install,He just used the Uninstall manager from the Control panel.
Also He had no clue about the so called "Pcie issue" He's been playing with them since release stressing them with benchies and what not.
He is using a Crosshair V formula Z motherboard.
Just thought I'd share.
