This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Best price I can see at the moment. Stiff competition from the blower Rx5700's which aren't much more expensive.

The following items are also bundled as part of the AMD promotion:
Strange Brigade
Devil May Cry 5
3 month Xbox game pass for PC

The cooler is great but as you say it's easily outdone by reference Rx 5700. The power consumption of this is over 50% more so that's a lot of extra heat!
Better off with the reference 5700 for the small difference in price if you purely game. If you have need for compute power this is the better buy!
Cannot get behind this deal, reference 5700 trump's it in every aspect.

Having said that though, the cheapest non-blower RX 5700 is still >£60 more expensive so it's not that straight forward.
If you are willing to undervolt this card there are some simple guides which would allow you to knock its power usage down by 30% or more.
RX5700 will slightly edge this in raw performance but cost £30 extra, less two games and will thermal throttle due to awful blower cooler. Getting an AIB model that solves the 5700s heat issues is coming in at £370 making this v64 a no brainer between the two. Heat.

You can also undervolt the 5700 slightly but it doesn't have enough head room as the XT unfortunately.

Cooler isn't ideal but acting like you're going to melt the card isn't fair, at one point people were calling the fire brigade if silicon chips went above 50!

Sorry I meant undervolt the Vega. The Navi cards are already quite efficient?

It's far from ideal. The GPU junction hits 110c and the drivers will down clock to bring the temperatures down. A manual aggressive fan curve is needed if you can bare the noise. There is no headroom unless you undervolt to bring temps down thus allowing clocks to stay high. AIB is the only sensible way to go with navi but the price premium is not worth it atm. When reference goes EOL and AIBs are rrp then they'll be a steal!
Thanks OP, just picked one of these up to pair with my threadripper.

I had a Vega 56 (reference cooler) and it kept crashing my PC due to temps - so I returned it.

Hopefully I don't have the same problems considering this beefy cooler.

No worries - hope it works out well for you! This seems to be widely regarded as one of the better Vega 64's out there.

Mine arrived today so tomorrow will be system build day with my son.

The best, as is its 56 counterpart. Don't forget to undervolt folks.

Is someone able to explain the difference between the different types of 5700. What is AIB and any timeline for it?

AiB is just an acronym to mean third party manufacturers who put on custom heatsinks and usually their own variant of boards. They are starting to be released now but cost about 10-15% more so may be difficult to justify the cost. In general these new versions have much better coolers so may give much better heat management; some are silent even under gaming load.
Received my card on Friday - what a beast! Rather large and very powerful (haven't played with clocks yet).

Just a note for those that haven't experienced the joys (viz horrors) of the AMD reward programme and verification tool Devil May Cry 5 and Xbox pass are via the AMD programme. The Strange Brigade is simply a Steam key...the good people at AMD didn't know this and it was only through a bit of tinkering that I found out. Guessing that means it is readily saleable should you be so inclined?
