Really liked the review of the box [:
The card can play crysis with 30ish fps averange, not a bad number, I don't believe you like motion blur though, I turn that thing completely off any game I play and its not for lack of horse power xD

I will.

You may have the worst RX480 but I have the worst RX470 ever...

My 110 pound (alright, for the price, I shouldn't be complaining) ArseSUS RX470 Strix-my-ass can't even overclock to 1350MHz core and 1700MHz memory with +100mV and +50% power limit...

Obviously at stock factory clocks, it runs fine and sips not that much power (90watts underload, core only, 1270MHz core) actually but fuck sakes, who looks at stock clocks? 


Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What? As I said, there seriously is nothing here :)

Yep but I lost the fucking silicon lottery so badly ;-;

 

How can it not even do +80MHz with power settings maxed out?

Next cheapest RX 480 4GB is 50 cad more

That's pretty steep. The cheapest card around here that I could get was Sapphire's 8 gig model (couldn't even find a 4 gig model in stock)

@tlink the pads were suppose to attach to the heatpipes so that's why they did not come in contact with the board and make looks like loose.
