I own Sapphire Radeon VII since 9th of February also.
Running it at 1035mV @1802MHz.
With this setting mine actaully gives more stable clocks than at defualt of 1082mV as it does not hit the junction temperature limit of 110°C as fast.
Mine can run stable under Firestrike stress test down to 1020mV, though at 1035mV the performance is better and close to default settings.
I am waiting for water block to fine tune it. :rolleyes:
I hope EKWB will release one soon.
I see lot of potential with proper cooling like in Vega 64.
My Vega 64 with watercooler gave nice frequency boost upto 1670MHz.

With regards UEFI bios I flashed mine manually using ATIFlash with Asrock one.
ASUS also released UEFI bios but Sapphire has not yet released one. I think though there is not any difference between the bioses from different vendors.
I think ASUS rom is exactly same as one from Asrock.

Here is a photo from inside Cooler Master Cosmos C700p with Radeon VII in action. :toast:
The water cooling loop is at the moment an overkill, three Rads (1x360mm+1x240mm+1x120mm) just cooling 2700x. :roll:
There used to be Vega 64 with EKWB block in this loop which is going on eBay soon. :rolleyes:

Here is a Timespy run at 1035mv and 1082MHz. Driver used is 19.2.2.

Here is the Unigine Superposition results at 1035mv and 1082MHz.

I found lowering the HBM down to 800 lower my temps with a 1950mhz core 1050mv.

Also auto overclock sets it to 2000mhz 1200mhz runs fine at this setting TJ gets 105-110. Set HBM to 800 TJ stays in the low 90’s. HBM Must be putting out more heat

In Geemany it is often available at Mindfactory and Caseking, but the prices went crazy after launch.
I bought it at mindfactory on launch day for 730€. Last two weeks they were selling them at 789€. Currently sold out at Mindactory. Poor guys who paid 59€ more than me. :oops:

Caseking has them in stock with cheepest one from Gigabyte for 839€. :(
Other brands cost 850€ over there! :shadedshu:

turbogear, I have an Asrock Radeon VII in a nearly identical setup to you except my MB is an Asus ROG Crosshair Hero VI with an X370 chipset. Mine is also custom watercooled and I used an EK EVO block for the cpu and an EK fullblock for my GTX1080, which is now in another machine. Tearing down the loop and just keeping the cpu under water wasn't that bad but the Radeon VII should be under water to "spread its wing".

Apparently EK might be making a full block. I have 2-360mm slim rads in series with a D5 pump res combo so plenty of rad capacity.

I ran Ran PerformanceTest 9 on both my 5960x(ocd to 4.4)/GTX1080TI combo and my 2700x/Radeon VII combo.

Thanks for results.
Your 2700x score is much better than mine. :cool:
Is it at stock settings?
My 2700x is at stock settings.

What memory speed are you using with 2700x?
I am using 16GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3200 CL14.

It’s an impressive case. Very customizable and can fit all kinds of stuff. It’s not exactly small, but you can build a powerful rig with regular hardware.

Turbogear, I am using Gskill AMD FlareX DDR4-3200 (2x8) OC to 3333 AND I enabled Precision Overclock in the BIOS since I have the 2700x under a custom waterblock. This allows it to clock abit higher due to the thermals being kept under control. The latest BIOS for the Crosshair VI (6401) eliminated the PO feature so I stayed with the previous BIOS. Your x470 chipset should have the feature in it. It allows your 2700x under custom water to run a bit faster.

Sup dudes. Got my Radeon VII under my custom sater loop. Had to modify a Bykski Intel block so it fits perfectly on the GPU+HBM SOC.

Hitting core clocks of 2200mhz at 80C. Voltage is a bit high for now at 1225mv to achieve it. Though my. Stock voltage is 1801mhz at 1028mv. Undervolting is a easy 950mv at 1801.

Anyways, yeah watercooling this bad boy gave me a 6463 https://benchmark.unigine.com/results/rid_734e78f79b6741cb88fb7820280fb5c6 on Superposition 1080 Extreme.

Trying to play with Power Play tables but currently running into stability issues. Once I figure that out 2300-2400mhz here I come!

I know it's under water, so controllable, but that's crazy high temp for water. Eek!

Would you consider a chiller unit to bring it down or are those clocks and voltages near the limit?

As I said the water block on it is a 18 dollar Intel one. Literally looks like Bykski took a dremel to a 3mm piece of copper to make the water channels in it.

Jeez. I been thinking of getting RVII myself. Now it's turning into damn I'm getting one :) Wonder how will it perform with bigger and designated water-block. If I could get it 2200Mhz core I'd be extremely happy :)

little OT- whats the RTX 2080 with water cooling? since FE already runs @1900Mhz on avg.
I ask since it's looks really nice OC headroom for VII that can OC from 1750Mhz up-to 2250+Mhz.
Edit:I see that with Dice it could only OC to 2340W, so now we can appreciate how well this early processes TSMC 7nm Radeon VII over-clocks :).
https://www.hexus.net/tech/news/graphics/122525-der8auer-overclocks-geforce-rtx-2080-using-dry-ice/
I wonder, Seeing the link you've posted with 2080 OC, what would be RVII's power draw. For the 2080 it jumped up by 50%.
What's VII's stock Vcore? I assume you can still undervolt this. Read (Guru3d I think) that undervolting didn't drop power that much. (around 10-15 watts) This isn't much. Probably when you OC RVII the power draw will be sky rocking.

Its a sloppy approach but its easier to do what they did than trying to find the absolute minimum voltages for the clock speeds.
Different PCs react in vastly different ways to those power requirements.
Say someone has a cheap-ass, no-name PSU that is misreporting its power output specs and barely has the ass to run the GPU.
Then the next guy has a Gold rated 1000W PSU that holds a steady output with one or more of the cards.

Maybe they (AMD) set the cards to run on higher power specs to compensate for the shitty PSUs of the world.

That isn't bad. Your fan curve is a bit high. Have you seen the AdoredTV review of the RVII? If not take a look. There's tweaks for the VII and the fan curve without losing power or frequency. He tests the card with Tomb Raider. He get's the RVII below 2000RPMs which is decent (if I remember correctly). Also compares the ram capacity to 2080 (non TI or maybe TI) and it would seem that some stages require more than 8GB at least that was one of the conclusions. Really nice comparison. There's also some undervolting tweaks. Worth to look at it.

I will post the direct link when I get home.
