I had a number of PowerColor cards with no real issues - major faults with fan failure from Gigabyte and the Sapphire ITX range. Mine are quiet and as others have said, while you shouldn't have to, you can slow the fans down a little and get an undervolt in there to keep temperatures in check.
Yeah I would say a custom fan curve makes a big difference with AMD cards.
Yeah same card. I must have been lucky with the cards I've purchased over the years for noise then if other users think the noise is ok. This honestly is a jet engine compared.
I'm happy with my Powercolor RX580 ... the fans do go at full whack quickly but I think that's the AMD fault and if you tweak the settings in the AMD s/w then it's a lot better
Any opinions on how this card compares vs XFX RX590?
