Hello Guys!
I've been pushing my vega 56 to its default clock 1750mhz (I've flashed it with 64 LC bios) but I am bogged down by its high temperature.Though I have cleaned the cooler and spread on the core,hbm with MX-2, I still get the hbm beyond 75c and core beyond 70c. Since the 64 LC bios has a strict Temp Limit , I only push my card at 1600-1620mhz with 1.1-1.15v and 1150mhz on memory . The FSE griphics score is 11300-11500 . But if I get a good cooler I think I can break 12000 or so. Now I have an Arctic III cooler but it dosen't fit to my card. So is there a way to use ACIII on my card or any Air cooler available on market?

Thanks in advance.

Raijintek Morpheus II or Morpheus Vega(which they say exists...but where you can get one is a mystery).

EDIT: Looks like the Morpheus Vega is a thing...you can actually buy. But seems to only be available in Europe(Overclockers UK, Caseking, etc.).
It looks great! But I can't find it in the PRC. Vega 64 LC cooler is available for around $75 . Considering vega 56 only costs me $240 and I can get a gtx 1080 for $340 , I will try using my own two 50w 12cm fans to help transfer the heat.

Well, You'd be hard pressed to find an air cooler that can keep the Vega64 cool at 1700+Mhz.

Wow. Wonder if I can just contact XFX and see if they have any of the factory AIO's they'd sell me then. lol. (Looking to keep this card going even after I retire it)

Well...he's talking about a Vega 56. But I digress. I can tell you from personal experience with one, that the Morpheus II is definitely up to the task. While mine won't do 1700+MHz in most cases, even when it does the Morpheus II typically keeps things at(or, more often than not, well below) 60°C with the fans blowing full tilt. And I'm not even using the "best" fans for the job(ARCTIC BioniX F120). Temps for gaming and graphics benchmarks with clocks @ ~1670/1160 are never more than 53°C(if letting the fans run 100%). The only time I've seen it get up to 60°C was during a ~16 minute GPUPI 32B run with the core @ 1713MHz.

EDIT: I should probably mention I'm using Conductonaut with it too. Which I'm sure makes a HUGE difference. ;)
