    Mate, when have you ever seen Vega 64 clocks stay the same and static in one game, let alone across a dozen? C'mon.

    I get 1632 all the time when setting P7 as minimum state on games that drop to 1000 due to engine issues. And performance reflects that.

    Look at the clocks. Even if it moves within 5mhz of each other, it NEVER sits still for more than a second.

    A reference out of the box Vega 64 will not maintain 1576MHz in Turbo.

    Tweaked to hell I can maintain 1576MHZ

    Mine sticks to 1650 on p7 all day long and 1180 on HBM again on water. Never goes over 44c. Hot spot is about 55c

    Any time. :) Since last year I have posted many different settings showing different behaviour. Hell had 1630 constant clocks while sipping power. (check last July post with Nitro).
    And I will do the same with the upcoming 5700XT. Because for me my PC is not just a console for "more FPS", and I like tweaking :D

    @TonyTurbo78 has some great settings also to share :D

    And I will let everyone know how the card handles with Morpheus II and 2 Noctua Industrial 3000 next week. As the Predator pump gave up and would stick to air cooling until I settle on a new home & country. :)

    You can scroll few pages back, others have posted tweaks :)

    However you cannot go wrong with P7 1672/1070-1100mv, P6 1632/1050-1080mv, mem 1000, set the floor voltage to 1050mv and +50% PL.
    Let us know how it goes :)

    Do not activate iChill or auto overclocks ofc. Save the profile also, because if you see games where the card is running uncharacteristically slow (eg 1400 or less), you can create a custom game profile and load this settings, setting the P7 as the minimum state.
    I do that on games like ESO, SWTOR, SWG.

    Just purchased the Sapphire Nitro + Vega 64 from a well known site with a smile, but from France. Just under £300 with a voucher I had delivered once the Euro has been converted. I was waiting until Navi but at that price I think it was too much of a bargain.

    Update on Vega 64 and the removal of the Watercool Heatkiller IV block....

    Decided today to prepare the card and remove the block. 2 of the screws at the end of the back refused to lose themselves. Destroyed 3 screwdriver heads while the screw heads remained intact. (lol)
    I had to snap and break the backplate to be able to gain better access and then used a metal saw blade and slowly cut through the backplate and the screws to chop them off.
    What presented with was similar to the other screws which came out more easily. All were corroded beyond recognition. And these screws are just 7 months old coming with the waterblock.
    I was surprised to see corrosion, when neither had issues with EK or Bykski over the years. Even back "in the dark ages" of watercooling of late 90s and early 00s.
    However the card is now free, cleaned and ready to receive the Morpheus II.

    To be fair, Vega 56/64 clocks are just...weird. My P7 is set to 1652 MHz but the card almost never goes above 1600 MHz despite having a +50% power limit set and plenty of temperature headroom.

    What are your P6 settings and P7 power setting?

    Well, after much umming and arrring over what to buy, and waiting months for Navi only to be disappointed with pricing I've ordered a Nitro+ 64. Hoping I've made the right choice!

    P7: 1025 mV, 1652 MHz

    Just bought a Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64 from the MM, coming soon, hoping to water cool it with a Bykski block, can't wait :)

    Where is the best guide on how to under volt, overclock etc? I'm totally new to this Vega & AMD architecture :)
