    Thanks for the info! I have already actually undervolted with 0% PL to 1050mv. This card runs hot even with the stock fans unfortunately, I've tried reseating the cooler too with no real change in temps. This config is the coolest and quietest I've got it to run!

    Should I try increasing my PL? Or undervolting further?

    If you want to keep the performance you have to increase the PL. On Vega, lowering the core voltage has - at some point - the side effect of bringing down the effective boost clock. So to keep a stable 1630 MHz on average at 1010 mV you'd have to set a much higher frequency (which in turn uses more power again). So the simple solution is always allowing the card to just use as much power as it needs.
    I used the other approach and brought down the voltage to 1020mV where it no longer ran into the 180W limit in most scenarios.

    Thanks for your reply pal.
    I ended up getting the Dell 2721DGFA so a normal 27" IPS flat panel.
    I figured that due to hardware being hard to get hold of and not much advancement over the last 12 months, I would hold off a full new build until 2022/23
    This way, the monitor is more absorbing and doesn't push my system as much as the widescreen.

    Hopefully when I do my final build, OLED style monitors will be far superior. I'm happy with this filler to last me for another few years. I just need to decide if to get a calabirator now to get the accurate colours.

    Loaded up Bf4 after 5 years break.
    Wanted to check fps for upcoming BF2042.
    1440p and a 165hz screen I was running 200fps with gameplay settings.
    My vega56 still with a third-party cooler due to fan died runs well.
    New CPUs makes a difference

    4 years and 173 pages since the OP. I bought my Vega 56 Pulse from OCUK on clearance for £220.00, wrongly not as I stated in an earlier post today purchased in circa 2019, but in circa 2018. Either way now in 2021, the RX 6600xt has been released; circa 80% additional performance of a 2018 GPU for circa double the cost. I would rather buy a console than pay for that.

    Yea, I recently checked 2nd hand prices on eBay thinking of selling mine and realised why they are selling for circa £450.00 in the UK. They can easily make circa £80.00 a month mining.

    I have one somewhere in the storage room, never used as it didnt fit in my case at the time. So basically mint condition. Keeping it as a backup in case my 5700xt dies.

    You might as well sell it now whilst prices are strong, and if your 5700XT dies you can buy another card with that money. If your 5700XT doesn’t die then you’re up. It’s a win win.

    Haha, are you kidding me? RX Vega 56 sits right there with the RTX 30xx series cards for Ergo?! I can't believe my eyes.

    I have no interest in mining, so also took advantage of the crazy second hand prices like othes have and recently sold my Vega 56 Pulse on the bay (it went in minutes!). I also managed to bag a 6600XT at RRP from OCUK on launch day, so the Vega paid for the upgrade and then some! :)

    Definitely didn't see this coming :rolleyes::o:cry:, tried to flash my V56 and fell at the first hurdle. Keeping getting 'subsystems ID mismatch' error. I'm running ATIWinFlash in admin mode and have tried 2 different Saphire V65 BIOS (non WC). Any ideas?

    Sale went fine, I have always sold my previous cards on ebay after upgrades and never had any issues despite all of the horror stories.

    This.

    I have sold a 7950, rx480, Vega 56, GTX 970, GTX 670 and many other PC parts on the bay, never a single issue.
