Im kinda shocked my Vega has held up for the amount of abuse its being given.

I've been running F@H on my RX Vega for the past 3 months... nearly 24/7.. @ 1,800Mhz core and its been holding up like a champ. 1.2V core to do that stable.. It'll do 1.185V but only if its under 70C hot-spot temp I've found. Cool Vega = happy Vega.

So, I see the PowerColor LC Vega 64s are $500. My understanding is they are better binned and perform pretty well. I may have a buyer for my Pulse 56 and an RX 580 leaving my total investment at about $100 to pick it up. I originally was going to purchase a Nitro 64 but they sold out before I could finish my purchase.

Are you still on a Lc bios?
No man it's not cold enough, well it is -27c out but I just opened the office window but the wife wont allow me to crack the front window to create a draft.. I'll load it up tonight, Im getting over 1650 on the core and sitting @950 HBM..(Vega 56 reference) Im actually getting real good benchmarks tonight. Im using wattman and have P6 and 7 @ +7 @1070mv and 1000mV on the hbm with a set fan curve that isn't annoying like the one AMD slapped into this driver, oh and BTW the beta driver sucks.. try the WHQL 18.12.2

That's awesome man!! So you cranking out some good points?

That's kinda a no brainer, sell what ya have and spend $100 out of pocket for a LC vega, HELL MAN GO FOR IT!! :pimp:

@theoneandonlymrk check at what @MrGenius is using for TIM, I recall seeing him saying its a diamond TIM and he wont use it any more and found some real good stuff, what it's called I have no idea but yeah man sounds exciting adding more cooling indeed!





And a screen shot off my ipad running Amd-Link running Supersition bench and playing with the cards memory settings (timings)

I'm debating on buying my finger is on the trigger but I keep hesitating. Is Vega worth it at this point?

What I'm looking at

RX 590 $259-369
Vega 56 $399 (this is what I was looking at settling on)
Vega 64 $469 (buuut this guy is only $70 more than above, value isn't there vs. v56 but it's just $70)
1080 ti overpriced or oos
RTX 2070 $630 (not $161 better than v64)

Should I just suck it up or hold out?

not at the minute tbh, id wait for the price fluctuations , the 2060 brings since its so close then get the vega 64 ,personally

@1920/1080 a RX 590 would be your cheapest bet. It will handle anything you throw at it. Get a Vega if you want to brag about it, and screw the Green team, we all know AMD graphics just look better all around.

RX Vega 56 it would depend on the card itself, got a link on what your looking at?

COOL-SILVER™ G4. The best non-diamond paste you can get. Thermal Conductivity >12 W/m-ºC. Silver-filled, so use with appropriate care.
AIT said:
Even though COOL-SILVER G4 is not conductive in bulk, individual particles may be conductive. Spreading to exposed circuit traces should be avoided.
Kryonaut works great. But it is a diamond-filled paste. And will cause scratching and pitting on the surfaces it's used on. Even with extremely hard surfaces(such as a silicon die, as diamond is one of the hardest substances known to man). Which I discovered the "hard" way(pardon the pun), by using it without knowing what it was made of ahead of time. It can probably be argued that the damage caused is minimal, and/or inconsequential in terms of cooling performance. Which may be true(at least to an extent). But the damage is real. And I don't like it. So I ain't havin' it. And I'm a little aggravated that Thermal Grizzly doesn't advertise it as such. But neither does Phobya with their NanoGrease Extreme(which I strongly suspect is rebadged JunPus JP-DX1). That I also found out through unknowing use is diamond-filled. At least with the other companies that are selling the stuff they tell you what you're getting(e.g. Antec 7, IC Diamond).
Both claim thermal conductivity of 16 w/m-K, look same color/consistency wise, and come in surprisingly similar packaging.

Really wish I knew that. I’ve done mine with Kryonaut twice now(Kryonaut, MX4, back to Kryonaut)Now I’m thinking of just going back to MX4 now that Wattman has let me turn off that Zero Fan nonsense even at absolute minimum fan speed my idle temps are like 26-28C now. Also note the HBM idle bug is still present. I took this pic nowhere near my PC and it’s been idle for hours.

I'm planning to step up to a higher res when i upgrade my monitor, the 580 i have now is putting up a valiant effort but struggling with TW:WII(40-50fps), I figure a 590 will do better but not by much and I'll be right back into the danger zone when the new monitor comes.

Strix vega 56, i'd rather not buy that one but it's the cheapest non-ref oc'd card I see

580 is a great card ant a 590 even better, you sure you don't have a dud?

Been playing BFV a few nights a week on dX11 as dx12 just wasn't performing that great for me.
I have looked at latest drivers but doesn't seem to be any performance gains mentioned on BFV, nor is there any mentioned in the december patch from BF about it.
Another thing I want mention..on average i'm getting mixture of 60-80% of CPU usage and 80-100% on GPU usage according to AMD overlay, would this mean my 1600 can't keep up with vega?
My 1600 is overclocked to run at the 3.7ghz constant speed and vega is at the same undervolt setup i've had previously, would changing my ram from 2400 to 3000 help?
Temps on both are perfectly fine.

Been playing BFV a few nights a week on dX11 as dx12 just wasn't performing that great for me.
I have looked at latest drivers but doesn't seem to be any performance gains mentioned on BFV, nor is there any mentioned in the december patch from BF about it.
Another thing I want mention..on average i'm getting mixture of 60-80% of CPU usage and 80-100% on GPU usage according to AMD overlay, would this mean my 1600 can't keep up with vega?
My 1600 is overclocked to run at the 3.7ghz constant speed and vega is at the same undervolt setup i've had previously, would changing my ram from 2400 to 3000 help?
Temps on both are perfectly fine.
A few things worth trying disabled would be ,chill, enhanced sync , I've had the odd game not like them at times.
The ram might help a bit , could be worth gathering more info.
Use hwinfo64 to monitor total cpu load ,gpu utilisation and total In use memory ,id right click on them and set it to chart and log it so you can look back after a trial run.

Chilled is always disabled, need check if enhanced sync is turned on or not. Will have a look at logging when I get time.

Hi it's been a while since I visited this forum.

My Vega 64 with EKWB waterblock has served me great for 1.5 years.
I ran it at 1085mV and 2.5% frequency increase setting in Wattman whole time. It ran very stable with frequencies at around 1670MHz and temperature max 42°C in most games.

I will be soon selling this nice card on eBay though. ;)

I have moved to Radeon VII now. :)

Hate to ask but has anyone had any experience with their Vega tripping the OCP on their PSU? During certain scenes (mainly Destiny 2 loading screen) my PC will make a loud click and cut off. Power and reset buttons are unresponsive and I have to turn the PSU off for a few seconds before I can boot it back up.

At least I think that's what it is, maybe my PSU is just going bad.
