Having a hard time determining it's greatness

Pros: Bought it at $219 which was super reasonable with a $30 Mir of which I accidentally didn't submit in time. Came with 3 great games, fits perfectly in case, sleek looking card.

Cons: I believe I've had the card about a month now. As much as I want to agree with everyone else who says this is a great card I'm having a hard time. I recently bought this card to replace a older (6-7 year old) card. Though in the time I've had it I've had random shutdowns and screen blackouts once the fan starts up in attempts to cool itself down. For me it seems to struggle with certain games even at low to medium and with the use obs. I not saying the card itself is bad, I'm sure others with proper tweaking methods are having a better experience with the card than I have been.

pleasantly surprised

Pros: I was a little bit hesitant because the card didn't seem to be the best quality Vega 56 out there, and maybe it isn't, but it is actually a lot more solid in the hand than I think the product images make it seem. I was prepared to deal with a cheapie card to get a Vega 56 at a good price with a game bundle I was really interested in, but the card was heavy and solid compared to my expectation.

The cooling system was another pleasant surprise, it's staying between 69-74 degrees most often with the fan ranging from under 2000 to around 23xx rpm. It's audible, but it's not that annoying of a tone or anything and I game with open backed headphones. It ramps down really quickly when you return to the desktop also. I haven't had a blower style card in a long time but the manners of this one are totally acceptable to me.

So far I've been playing The Division 2 on ultra with the only option dropped being volumetric fog medium and it's been returning about 70-90fps outdoor/indoor at 1440p. With freesync on it's extremely smooth. It flies in Doom and The Witcher 3 too.

All of my bundled games redeemed easily and immediately. I haven't noticed any coil whine in game, just on an uncapped fps loading screen, which is not unusual. Radeon software installed with no problems and rather quickly. I used the auto-undervolt option, not sure how well it did but I'll tweak more later. The card has a multitude of options there if you want to use them like undervolting, power mods, dual bios, radeon chill, and relive.

Cons: My card has Hynix memory, apparently Samsung is preferred for unlocking to Vega 64
I find the MSI rebate process one of the worst I've used
The fan seems to spin up hard a moment at boot, I prefer cards that start quietly
Power consumption is higher than the competition
I prefer the straight up reference heatsink shroud design compared to this

Other Thoughts: I used the cheapest super egg saver shipping. Ordered Tuesday, shipped out 1am Thursday morning, received the following Wednesday. 8 days is the longest I've waited on a package in a while, so I would have upgraded to ground if I could do it again.

Gtx1080 level performance on budget

Pros: Samsung memory. Thus, superior than other VEGA 56 AIB board

Under-volt to 0.975V core. Overclocked to achieve 1570MHz persistent core clock and 1050MHz memory clock. Power draw: ~200W under full load.

Similar performance as my GTX 1080.

Cons: A little loud in stock settings under full load. But after tuning, it becomes quiet.
