Hot!! Flash to a XT bios and you have near 2070S performance for about half the price.

Unbeatable. Hothothot.
Just to squash any BS pre-emptively - these cards do not run that hot or loud at stock, and not at all with a couple basic tweaks to fan curve and voltage. My reference 5700xt with basic tweaks runs overclocked, undervolted and cool (core at ~75degC), almost as quiet as my old dual-fan Zotac 1070ti Amp! (fan speed >40%), and sits at ~1900-1920mhz all day under load.

This looks like lot of noise for me unless their testing is flawed:
Anandtech Review of Noise

Blower fan will always be noisy as smaller fan higher revs to keep the card cool.

Don't really trust Anand for any credibility considering how half their articles read like Intel PR. Hardware unboxed is way more neutral and honest.

As for the card the regular 5700 blower ain't bad but honestly a minor undervolt and fan curve will get you by and at this price you're getting a lot of performance for your money regardless. The equivalent 2060 Super is over £100 more. Heck you can get an Arctic accelero for less than £50 and still you spent less than a custom navi or Nvidia card, and the reference PCB is among the best anyway.

With the 5700, you can spend this much on a reference card that will be loud in any instance when compared with a good cooler. Changing the cooler will mean the warranty is void. Hence, the best option is to probably pay £40-50 more for a model with good cooler instead of buying a blower one.

I have always appreciated Anandtech reviews and Techspot (Hardware Unboxed) and they are rarely ever false so I will go with their review test. But yeah if you are happy with noise or use a headphone then you will be fine with a blower model. I use it in my living room and any noise bothers everyone around me so have to keep it to a minimum.

Some manufacturers are okay with replacement coolers provided the fault isn't as a result of it. That said its still a great price regardless for those who aren't too bothered or keep their system further away.

At stock, there is more noise than a non-reference non-blower, sure. Compared to other reference blowers, it's reasonable.

As stated, however, a few clicks tweaking an undervolt and fan curve change this completely.

Absolutely. But that's not what is in question at all. Nobody said that a blower fan will be quieter than a dual/triple fan solution.

The question is whether it can be tweaked to be almost equal to other solutions, thus justifying this HUGE price deficit (£100, or approx 35%) between the 5700 vanilla and its competitor, the RTX2060 super. You can get a 2060 vanilla for only about £200 more, and lose in performance plus smaller mem-bus and 25% less VRAM, if one wishes.

Why go through so much hassle and not get the Evoke MSI version for £30 more compared to the blower version?

That one is also noise and pretty terrible, that's why. You really want toe powercolor or sapphire ones, or gigabyte if you can find it. The rest have poor cooling (and thermals) or value (or both).

Actually the MSI has good cooling but at the expense of the noise level. One reviewer stated that they could've let the temps go to 70 Celsius instead of aiming for 60 c.

(1) What hassle? Tweak a couple sliders with a few mouse clicks. Boom. (2) I can't see a 5700 for less than £60 more than this model.

Price performance, it's unbeatable.

MSI Evoke 5700 is available for £310 after code and even better would be go for the Pulse 5700XT for 377. Both cards have same value, depending on what you can spend.

I have a RM650X and its dead silent running a 1660Ti. Previously I had a TX850 i think and that was noisy as hell. Get a PSU that runs the fan only when temps reach a certain level else stay off.

If someone is happy to pay the extra for that model, then sure. Personally, I don't think it's worth 10-15% more, given for that price you're into reference 5700xt on sale territory. But everyone has their preferences.

The point of my original post is to combat the misinformation which burns like wildfire on forums with people who've never used the cards in question, and often cherry picking examples of the worst conditions to confirm their bias.

Why me? I don't need a psu... hahaha.
Just wanna say people avoid the MSI Evoke, the cooling is pretty terrible for the memory/vrm. Go with the sapphire/powercolor custom models. They also don't look ugly af.
This price almost renders the 200 quid Vega 56 a non option.
Would an i5 6500 bottleneck this card?
Currently have i5 6500 and 980ti

Except it's fine for those who don't need to overclock. It runs even hotter on the stock blower so at this price it's ok compromise.
Rather pay 50 quid more for silence... this is noisy dont listen to the above amd fan bois... blower cards like this suck... i have no clue why they are even a thing in 2019...

because this is the cheapest card that I can strip the HS and fan off without feeling bad, then strap a water block on it and flash 5700XT bios for fun. so essentially under £400 I have a liquid cooled 5700XT. well thats the plan anyway

MSI have the potential for good cooling but let themselves down with penny saving decisions like this:38670507-VgG6f.jpgIt's not just the 5700 or AMD that they've slapped half thermal pads on. Check out their Nvidia 2060 as well, they do the same thing there. They are making such a tiny saving to cost at the expense of the consumer. This is not common practice and should not be supported.
"Credit" to them though as they have now made a statement that they acknowledge its an issue and and are looking to fix it for future revisions/models. But this still leaves plenty of these cards on the market, and should never have left the factory.

Anyway, this deal is about the blower card and it's a great deal at this price. Crazy good. Only spend £10 more for a good cooler, £20 at a push. Considering the nearest dual/triple fan cooler is £50 more its not even a discussion.

Why go through that hassle when you can simply get a superior product to begin wtih. The Strix cards suffer a similar problem, while being obscenely expensive.
