    What's different between your pic and the unmodified card in OP?

    Even if it DID have the heat issue. A 10 min fix will sort you out and you get a cracking Strix card for a good price.

    @Boomstick777 quick question for you, when you were 'pasting' back up the core/hbm did you just put a small blob on each or a big smeary 'X'

    A big blob, need coverage. My card died though. Was shipped and think got damaged in transit. I've moved onto RTX 2080 now.

    Yes there was a fix, they revised the cooler to some extent to cover the problem area. Its in newer stock of the card but you could possibly get an older one depending on how long the store has had them.

    Can anyone with the new card tell me what kind of VRM temperatures and GPU clocks they are getting?

    I am in the middle of my second RMA with Asus waiting for them to send me a new card. The first card they have sent me still hits 110 degrees on the VRM playing stuff like Overwatch and it does not have the new heatsink piece on the cage so it was an old card.

    I didn’t get much time to test, but my card was hitting 1618mhz on the core at roughly 65c, I’ll get HBM temps later and report back.

    This is what my cards HWinfo report looks like, I'm most curious in the new VR VDDC temperatures because they gotta be better if your core temps are only 65c.

    Ive just ran time spy stress test for 30minutes, the HBM topped out at around 71c with the core at around 67c. The HBM i only had clocked to 980mhz though.

    My card also has the additional little heatsink mod also.

    Well hopefully my card has the little heatsink. Did you get a chance to check the VR VDDC temperature too? I assume case and ventilation has a lot to do with cooling too.

    HWinfo and GPU-Z as a back up. How about you?

    Ok thanks, I think if they give me another old card I will have to complain at Asus RMA to give me one with the new heatsink.

    What case are you using btw? I have it in a Fractal R6 which is on the warmer side, but it shouldn't be this warm because my 1080ti VRM temps don't exceed 100 degrees.
