I can't wait till mid to late August for aftermarket RX 5700 cards to come out. I have a dead RX 470 Nitro+ OC. I know AMD uses 5.32cm by 5.32cm mount for almost all its coolers. Can @W1zzard or anyone with spare cards lying around test it and let me know?

I mean I saw it but I was asking for confirmation that the Nitro cooler is just plug and play like that. I'm from third world asian country that doesn't have a return policy and it's an expensive experiment otherwise.

The rumor mill has been less and less optimistic about that date since it originally popped up. My guess is, they are examining what can be done to shrink the performance difference between the new nVidia models and probably more so ... overtake the old 2060 / 2070 when all cards overclocked. I would have to say, regardless of when, curb your enthusiasm and hold off til later steppinmgs when the wrinkles have been washed out. Some great examplesof early failures

-MSI Cards shipped with tape holding fans from being rattled during shipping; many users broke fans when removing tape as supplier went a bit to aggressive on the adhesion level.
-EVGA SC cards where 1/3 of the cooler missed the GPU
-EVGA cards where they cheaped out and didn't user thermal pads on memory / VRM
-Most 480 cards that shipped with 6-pin power connectors

All of these were fixed in the 3 months after release ... good things come to those who wait :)

I have a 5700XT and a dead Sapphire RX 470 Nitro+ OC 8GB whatever.
I would also like to know if the cooler is compatible.

Yeah. Looks like I'll just get a RTX 2060 then. Two free games and is faster in UE4 games (PUBG, SQUAD, Insurgency Sandstorm). Thanks anyway.
