Did nobody buy this card when it was £620 when the currys deal was on?

It was too expensive then and even more so now. Pascal has been out for ages and Volta is not to far away. These should be £500-£550. But people happy to pay anything Nvidia asks so they keep increasing prices.

I would rather wait for Volta and get the same performance for nearly half the price.

Correct , I buy a pair and mix with another branded pair, so a total 4 x 2TB with effective storage capacity of 4 TB, although technically, I could buy one of Hitachi, WDC, Toshiba, Seagate but I have not ever. But that's why I haven't bought any 4TB as yet, as it is 4 X 4 TH, around £400-£500. Although I am thinking about my next step is to back up two 2TB to a single 4TB or vice versa.

Just an update for anyone still interested in this case, I've now been running a Ryzen 1600 at 3.8 on the stock cooler with an overclocked RX580 for a few days and it hasn't burst into flame yet. It's not great for thermals as everyone presumed but it will do the job, I'm pretty confident that with better cooling I could get the cpu to 4.0Ghz without an issue but it's a beast as it is userbenchmark.com/Use…010

Yesterday I tried fitting the front fans to the inside of the case which did drop the cpu temp a couple of degrees as it removes some of the air resistance, not quite as pretty from the front but the interior looks better. Positive case pressure is possible but you do have to play with the fan curves, I had to speed up the front fans and slow down the rear a little to get the balance right. The fans seem to be a cheaper version of Cooler Masters retail fans, I'm not sure but I think they have different bearings and can get a bit loud when gaming but not obnoxiously so.

Overall I'm pleased with the case, it looks fantastic and was simple to build in and cable manage. Due to the less than optimal thermals I wouldn't build anything too extreme in it, but a mid range system is fine.

That's fair enough, that sort of stress test is completely valid, but it's not fair to then say the case is useless. You need to show it having problems with a modern more power efficient system and quality fans to say that, a case at this price is going to be for low to mid range systems after all.


his cpu is so old it probably just need some new thermal paste on this cpu cooler lol

Without the front panel the case is great, but with the front panel temps quickly get out of control. Forget overclocking even g series Pentium cpus.


Have you tried it with some decent fans instead of those no name ones? I'm sorry, but if you're having that many problems with the case something is wrong somewhere, I've seen several reviews now and you are the only one reporting thermal shutdowns.

I did the review just to point out how bad the cooler master design team have got since the HAF cases. A fx8350 actually runs cooler than some newer intel K chips, so new builders are going to run into thermal issues if they use this or similar cases. Gamers nexus just said the same about the new HAF case as well. Style over function from cooler master these days sadly.

whats the best for mining then? asking for a friend...


An RX 480 is currently the best AMD card for price, power consumption and speed or you can use Vega with some heavy tweaking. R9 290/390 is good if you don't care about power usage. On the nVidia side a GTX 1070 or 1080 is best.

But given the massive difficulty increase recently, tell your 'friend' not to waste his time as a single card mining is virtually pointless - if you want in to crypto, just buy the coins outright, getting ROI is nearly impossible now

I'd be very interested in finding one. I've waited forever for Vega and after everything it's disappointed me massively (I'm an AMD fan). I just ordered a GTX 1080 so my 7950 will be ready to find a new home in a week.

BTW if anyone is wondering, I ordered one and I'm really pleased with it. I've been playing GTA V with no problems and also use a Mac OS emulator and emulating for app development is a breeze on this machine.
I like the display even though it's not QHD or anything too fancy. Brightness levels are also good. Fan noise is low for regular use - only starts the louder boost fan when gaming/intensive tasks or if you press the fan button.
Only area for improvement is the 128gb SSD gets filled too fast - couldn't fit 70GB of GTA V on it... so very useful having the 1TB HDD.
There is a bit of bloatware but it's easy to remove. The Dragon Centre app is very useful for controlling performance.
It's not that heavy and battery life looks like 4 hours if using battery saving mode. Otherwise probably half of that if gaming.
I'm tempted to add RAM for what I use the machine for. But I'll leave it for now as it voids the good 2 years and extra free 3 months warranty that you get.

Also Scan experience was very good, product came on Monday when ordered on a Saturday. DPD tracking so you know exactly when its coming. Box was very big and excessively padded.

I hesitated to pull the trigger on the Asus mostly due to comments about a constant noisy fan...maybe with a gaming laptop that'll be unavoidable?

Hey, did you water cool or are you air cooling the gpu? if so is it as close to the window as it looks? to me it looked like it might give 1cm clearace.
Also if you are using the sideways mount for gpu have you considered modding the pci slots into a second exhaust fan (if you aren't using them)?

One thing to say is some games like GTA V and PUBG are horribly optimised and run like **** at 4k. not that they dont look good but even a clocked 1080 hybrid can hit 60fps. a truth which pains me to say. if you purchased i hope you enjoy it.

This is the kind of statement that clearly reveals whether the writer is …This is the kind of statement that clearly reveals whether the writer is someone who has experience with a range of graphics cards on a range of screens, or someone who lives vicariously through reviews and is laboring under the misapprehension that graphics card reviews are the best way to see how a game will typically run (as opposed to the actual purpose of graphics card reviews - to see how the graphics cards perform).The misconception that gamers have no choice but to run every PC game at Ultra settings is tragically ludicrous - although to be fair, it's not an uncommon mistake among enthusiastic amateurs. The idea that "a 1070 is not for 4K gaming" is almost painfully out of touch with reality, though. On a platform with over 10,000 games, having to lower Shadows and drop down to SSAO on two dozen games is a minor inconvenience for someone with gaming as a secondary concern.And as the "person who was interested" quite clearly indicated that their primary usage for the monitor was work, and that they were happy with how smooth games can appear at 60Hz, trying to force your own standard of smoothness onto them afterwards is just... bizarre. It's like telling someone they should buy shoes that fit you instead of them.Personally, I think 1440P and 144Hz or 165Hz with adaptive sync is the best gaming balance for me, too, as my main screen at home is primarily for gaming, so we have do that in common. But I've also used a couple of 4K60 screens with 1060s, 1070s and 1080s, and found that modern PC games (say, post-1995) have included something called a "Graphics" menu that allows qualified computer geniuses like myself to adjust the level of detail in games, and you will probably be surprised to learn that lowering the detail slightly can (gasp) give a big boost to the frame rate.


The argument would be if you have to lower settings that much with a 1070 to get 60fps with 4K, why would you even play in 4K, the advantage of 4K is, downsizing ingame to 1080p is good, but still, 1440P is definitely a sweet spot atm with the technology available.

Btw, you do realise this is a G-Sync monitor right? The last time we crossed paths, you said there was no point buying G-Sync for anyone anywhere ever.

Yes, I was wrong about gsync, under certain scenarios, it's useless for competetiive gamers and great for anyone else.

30fps will still look like 30fps and 60fps will still look like 60fps. If …30fps will still look like 30fps and 60fps will still look like 60fps. If you have that card, I would recommend getting a better monitor than 60fps (that has G-Sync). You will get more out of your card, and you won't regret the difference.



Are you sure 4k won't pull a 1080ti down to around 60fps in modern games? Seeing as i'm not already used to higher refresh rates, I'm just wondering if staying at 60hz with 4k G-Sync might be a better option, especially long term. Or do you really think the extra frames are that much of an improvement?

Test it first without installing it , remember also it's not pressurised so even if there's a leak it will be slow.
Once it's up and running I don't think you'll have problems. Happy to advise if you want, just PM me.

Lots of the tech in Vega isn't in use yet.All guess work but not without merit. Completely agree that if your not happy with performance at time of purchase then don't buy. Just seen the 1080 deal for just over £500. Tbh if I didn't have a fresync monitor I'd prob have gone gtx, or had I thought I'd likely nab a TI like @The_Hoff for close to £600!


I've stopped believing anything The_Hoff says, he's claimed that he's purchased all sorts of items. I think I saw a heated discussion about buying an RX Vega 56 for 379.99 and selling it for almost 500 quid quid...

Anyway, at this price, skip it!

same price at overclockers

I was going to wait for AIB cards with partner coolers, but I reckon they'll be around £550 for a while if not higher (complete guess), bit of a gamble. I spoke to scan and apparently if you're not happy with the card (i.e. noise and heat) can return within 14 days. Wish it had been 30 days as might have left it boxed until other cards appear.


This AMD 'Fine Wine' is just overhyped.


babeltechreviews.com/fur…/3/


You barely are getting 5% more, likely much less (I don't really want to attempt the math for all of them).


Some of the games get a big uplift from start/end, but it generally is the case that these games were don't change by much.

People need to stop saying "Just wait, AMD GPU will be better, #FineWine" because in reality, you are locked in to a certain FPS range at purchase.
