i would think twice before buying blower type card, needs a lot of adjusting before you get good power to performance to noise ratio.

Now that's a good price for a card which will only get better per driver release.

From what I've seen through reviews the blower reference cards are just about justifiable for the 5700 but are absolutely not to be touched for the 5700 xt where the really high thermals cause crashes and really high noise output.
Mine has been fine. Most end users seem to be saying the same thing too. Yeah, it's a little loud (though nowhere close to Vega 64 levels). Yeah, temperatures are on the higher side. But it works fine. Ticking "Auto Undervolt" in Wattman made a big difference.

Bought mine for a custom loop, so the stock cooler is only temporary. But I'm left wondering what all of the fuss is about. But then, nothing sells video views like a drama bandwagon...

However, Overclockers (and maybe other sites?) currently have the Powercolor Dual for £379.99 and some decent discounts on other AIB cards. If I was buying now and not planning to water cool, I'd spend the extra £30-£50 on a better card.

Blower cards do have their advantages in ITX/mATX cases where airflow or space are limited. This is also a good option for anyone looking to put a waterblock on it. Or you could get a cheap Arctic cooler for still less than the cost of an aftermarket XT.

Any suggestion for the arctic coolers?

Does changing coolers not void warranty? And what is the point? Why not just buy a decent card in the first place spending the extra rather than go through the hassle.

Depends on the circumstance really. A blower card is more suited for watercooling as reference design blocks are more readily available. Warranty varies brand to brand, some are ok with you replacing coolers and heatsinks, others might not be. However in some places, such as the US, companies can't prohibit customers from servicing their own graphics card etc and thus over there even your old traditional "do not void" warranty stickers mean nothing more than to scare of potentially inexperienced owners as it has no legal basis.

I believe it fits fine as a few people have done it.

You'd be crazy to put this card in an ITX/mATX case. Even with the blower style, you want airflow as the 5700xt has bad hotspots.

Snippet from AMD themselves:

"Operating at up to 110°C Junction Temperature during typical gaming usage is expected and within spec."

You certainly don't want that in a closed, poorly ventilated, area.

There are far better options for an ITX/mATX case, NVIDIA simply has the ITX/mATX and single slot GPU market down to an art form.
