    I thought I'd do a quick userbench as it's been a while & I don't think I've ever done it with my current 2700x rig.

    BF4 was good for it and I tried Mass Effect: Andromeda which ran very well.

    Bit of a noob question. I know 0.05% of what you guys do!

    Just ordered a Sapphire Vega 64 for my rig (bottom of the post).

    My question - videos seem to show there being 3 x 8pin power connectors. Do you use all three (separate cables to the PSU) or just two?

    ....and yes I will overclock my CPU with this card :)

    - Asus Z170-A Intel Z170 (Socket 1151) DDR4 ATX Motherboard
    - Intel Core i5-6600K 3.9GHz (Skylake) Socket LGA1151 Processor - Retail - STOCK. Corsair closed loop watercooler.
    -Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 PC4-25600C16 3200MHz Dual Channel Kit - Black (CMK16GX4M2B32
    -Samsung PM961 Polaris 128GB M.2-2880 PCI-e 3.0 x 4 NVMe Solid State Drive
    - Sapphire AMD RX480 Nitro+ 8 GB GDDR5 Memory Polaris FinFET DX 12 Vulkan FreeSync PCI-Express Graphics Card
    - EVGA SuperNova G2 750W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply
    - Philips BDM4065UC 40" 4K

    It's only the limited edition that used 3 x 8pin power connectors, if you bought the card from overclockers it's the normal edition which has 2 x 8 pin power connectors and I would use a separate cable for each plug.

    I'm looking to swap my AIB Vega 64 for a reference so itlli fit in my ITX case (thread in the wanted section on MM if anyone's interested).

    Just wondering what noise levels on the reference are like at idle or watching movies/YouTube?

    You can set it up to be really quiet for those applications.

    Hi folks, just a quickie... How do I claim the free games that came with my Red Devil?

    I'm sure it's not hard, but I'm being incredibly thick at the moment... Can't remember seeing anything in the box, and AMD website is just confusing me!

    I'm wondering if someone could clarify something for me.
    The HBM voltage in Wattman isn't actually anything to do with the HBM, rather it's the lower voltage limit for the core? and that the HBM voltage can't actually be changed (it's set in the cards BIOS)?

    @DoneADougalOnSofa I received an email from Overclockers regarding the free games, check your email.

    Not being accepted... Mind you, I did buy it nearly five months ago. Lodged a support ticket with a PDF of the invoice, so I am optimistic this can be sorted! :D

    Silent using the stock fan profile, the gpu will only use around 15w so it won't need to ramp the fans up.

    I'd be interested but where do I find the wanted section in MM?

    The noise levels at idle or watching movies is fine and I have the Sapphire reference card.
