    No

    Use the Strix on air or go for other options to watercool.

    Other options as in Sapphire or just something other than V64 completely?

    V64 is a very good card but if you are looking to watercool don't waste money on the expensive AIB cards like the Strix.

    Personally if I got another V64 card it would be something like a Sapphire Nitro and I would leave it on air.:)

    I'm putting together my first ever custom loop so i'm pretty much set on including the GPU :) I might just see if i can get a 2nd hand V64 in the MM, I expect there will be a few once people jump on Radeon 7.

    I'm tempted to do this but only if I can get cheap parts

    I'm doing all new water cooling parts unless i can actually find a used gfx card + block. If i have to buy a used card and new Bykski block then i'll settle for that.

    I can personally vouch for this. The nitro+ is a beast with more than plenty cooling and doesn't sound like a jet engine. It makes less noise than my Cryorig R1 ultimate for reference

    I'd just snag a used reference card and put it under with a good block then.

    Hiya,
    I am having problems with my Sapphire RX Vega 64 Nitro +, it runs fine in normal games and i have done the recommended undervolt etc, have run Furmark GPU stress test at 1920x1080 with 8x MSAA for an hour and it never went over 60 degrees so i know there is no problems with the card itself. But it is problematic when i run VR. I have a Samsung Odyssey headset which works great with my GTX980TI but with the Vega 64 i get steamvr crashing most of the time i use it, steam itself crashes to such an extent that i have to enter my password to start it up again and i get regular BSD. once i actually get VR running it runs fine but its such a pain to actually get it running that i have reinstalled my old card and i feel i have wasted my money because i bought it specifically to get better performance from VR. I do have an unusual setup which is i have my Sim rig with a 2K monitor and my normal desk with a 1080p tv and i switch between the two but i never have both on at once and my old card handles it no problem.I have of course tried running the card with default settings, same result. I am using the latest amd drivers and have tried older drivers as well to no avail. The conclusion i have come to is its the drivers are not optimized properly for Windows mixed reality(WMR) which is what the Samsung Odyssey headset is. I think that Vive and Rift headsets are OK but i dont know. Is anybody else having or had problems with VR? in particular with windows mixed reality, or does anyone have any idea what is causing my problems. Do i have to sell my virtually new GPU and get a RTX 2080 which i cant afford anyway.



    My system is:- Ryzen 5 1600 overclocked to 4.0gig. 2x8 gig of DDR4 running at 3000 meg. Samsung EVO SSD 500gig for windows and my VR Games. 3 terabyte normal disk drive. Seasonic 750watt PSU.

    For those looking, keep an eye on the MM, there might be beast of a Vega64 with waterblock fitted appearing soon ;)

    Fair play, I think it really comes down to the price, i'll be skipping it though.

    Hi, I currently have a 4gb Asus r9 fury strix would the Vega 64 nitro at £399 be a good replacement ?
