This is my current setup low noise and stays cool Power is also -10%
Thanks for screen shot.
As you mentioned before HBM is under clocked to 800MHz in your setup.
This seems to help a lot with junction temperature.

I ran benchmark with something similar few days ago. My results showed that down clocking memory causes some loss of performance.
With 1035mV @1802MHz and memory 1GHz, TimeSpy score graphic score 8822
With 1035mV @1802MHz and memory 800MHz, TimeSpy score graphic score 8534
I will put benchmark results and temperature values for these setting in the evening.

Editted:

I tried your setting to compare junction temperature results.
Setting used are 1775MHz @986mV and HBM slider at 800MHz.
The junction temperature for me was in range of 75°C going up to 81°C.

The Timespy shows that the performance is also less.
We get 8159 points instead of 8822.

My personal favorite is still the setting I wrote about before here:

Got it installed barley fits
Nice fit and I have the same Case. Seriously leaning on getting the Radeon VII than a 2080 and I have a question to ask..

How long is the Radeon VII? I have seen it listed as 307mm and also at 267mm so I want to make sure it fits (be it a tight fit). I do not see why there are different lengths to the same card. I also see that AMD website has it in stock (but not MSI/ASUS XFX, Sapphire etx) so did you get yours through AMD itself one of the other companies?? Just making sure all my ducks are in a row before I pull the trigger and buy one (GPU is the last main piece of my new system I am building).

I went by AMD specs i belive was 280 with the case max of 285. Yes i got off AMD. It's not easy to get in there at all, you will need to file down a small part of the PCB on the case like a 1/8x1/8 to get it to slot down all the way.(Power,Reset, USB PCB just the top corner) Any card that is wider will not fit as i am tight ageist the outside case. also used the sides with holes on Left and Top with window on right for good cooling as the card sucks in cool air and kicks it out on top.

Thank you very very much on the info. Now I can buy it through AMD or other places with a peace of mind knowing it fits this coming Friday (payday). And will file the necessary area(s) to get it to fit plus I never thought about the heat being pushed UP instead of being pushed out the side.

Looking forward to my first Radeon card.

I wrote to EKWB.
The support representative wrote me that they expect to release Radeon VII block in about 4 weeks. :toast:
I will wait for EKWB to release theirs.

I'm really happy with the performance of my Vega II on my Samsung LC49HG90DMMX, had some issue with PQ using MiniDP, but DP with a DP1.3 cable seems to be doing the trick. I'll make this temporary arrangement permanent. I'll get WC stuff for my VEGA II for sure, but not in a rush as the card is a beast, handles all the games I play with relative ease, Metro Exodus is a challenge for it, but framerate's between about 60fps to >100fps, so I'm happy.

I tried simply disabling Tessellation and yes, there's a nice speed bump. But, I don't really need to disable both Advanced PhysX and Tessellation as my Vega II plays it quite smoothly @3840x1080. Strangely enough, the game without Tessellation looks pretty good as well.

That's one mad display. Games like F1 201x should be awesome with a proper steering wheel & pedals if supported.

Oh yeah, but there are 5120x1440 monitors out now (or should soon be available). But I'm happy with just 3840x1080 since it'd not need massive GPU's to run at that res, below is what the setup looks like, I've since replaced the Logitech speakers with a Samsung K651 soundbar. Running Forza Horizon 4 in benchmark mode, actual gameplay in first person mode.....


Edit - When I took this pic, the monitor was hooked up to my 2x VEGA 64 + i7 3960X rig, it's now hooked up to my i7 4770K + Vega II rig.

Looks like my patience has paid off. Through Amazon I am getting the MSI Radeon VII that has been pre-ordered for a while which is now being shipped and should be in my hands Friday. I am so pumped and cannot wait to put that baby in my new system and get it up and running.

I really was thinking on buying it through AMD itself but with just a 1 year warranty, that did not settle well with me so once I got a email stating the MSI was for pre-order I jumped at it for through MSI I get 3 year warranty which puts my mind more at ease.

Because the Gpu and Ram are combined, it's a nice card for a waterblock.

These are great results.
Average clock speed of 1804MHz is very nice.
I think you are among the first to go with full cover water block.
I envy you for that. :toast:
I will follow you soon. Just waiting for EKWB.
If they don't release one soon I will go with Bykski.


Which thermal past did you use?
I will go with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut.


With regards to your Vega 64, I sold mine that was watercooled on eBay for 371€. :D

Due to special offer I had to pay eBay only 5€ fee. Usually they charge 10% of selling price.

Question. Other than the latest drivers which programs should i use to get to test the card etc. I know Afterburner has been mentioned a lot and Timespy..any others?
For guide on different stress test options for GPUs, you can have a look at the following link from Tom's Hardware:

I wish it was me :), just a post I found on other thread and shared here, full water block looks really good for VII, no wonder why more company's working on it.
P.S did you read that it took only 2 days to get it to US? he mentioned the store he bought from on AliExpresses, I know others are waiting for end of March shipment from US store.

I really thought it was you who bought it. :roll:
Yes it is really fast delivery.
I thought that these Bykski were also still on pre-order and availabilty was at end of March.

Alphacool has also anounced theirs. Availibilty in 2 to 3 weeks.
This one includes backplate but I think single slot bracket is not included. I looked at alphacool German website. There is no mention for single slot I/O bracket.

Speeking about the looks of Radeon VII with water block, this is how my Vega 64 that I sold used looked like. :D

If these things can hold 2.0Ghz while gaming.. it'd be worth it to bump.. but I just can't justify a purchase at the price its at for the gain I'd get. HBCC works well enough that I don't need the extra VRAM either.

I paid $525 for my Vega64 Liquid card. It holds 1800Mhz core clock and up to 1150Mhz on the HBM2. I wish reviewers would tweak Vega64 Liquids a bit and show what it can really do. ALL Vega64 Liquids can do 1750Mhz core, 1050Mhz HBM2. Most reviewers just let it remain at stock which puts the core clock at around 1600Mhz and HBM stays at 945Mhz. But look at what GamersNexus did with their V56 and it owns. So it'd be great to see the same done to VII.

So, if someone really wants to get a-lot of performance out of these cards(VII).. You'll see a few above 2100Mhz.

I have decided to go with Alphacool for waterblock for my Radeon VII. :cool:
The pre-order has been placed at Aquatuning. Expected delivery is 15 days.

This block comes with a backplate, but it does not come with Single Slot Bracket. :oops:
I have ordered the following bracket. It should be compatible with Radeon VII I think.

There is already an installation guide available for this block.

For the thermal paste I will be using the high performance Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut instead of the one that is supplied with it.
