Overall Review: I am a new builder and won the chance for this card in the Newegg Shuffle. I was one of the few not disappointed to have it bundled with a motherboard since I needed one anyway. The card arrived well-packaged and sealed. I built my rig on a B550 Aorus Master mobo in a Corsair 4000X case. The card fit easily inside [but sag :( ] and was coupled with a R7 5800X and 4x8GB/3600 MHz C16 Corsair Vengeance Pro memory. During benchmarking/stress testing the GPU averaged +/- 70* C and I got the boost clock to reach 2185 MHz as a newb. I used Unigine Heaven, 3DMark:Time Spy/Port Royal/Fire Strike/CPU Profile, MSI Kombustor and SoTR for stability/benchmarking. Scored 143 FPS on the SoTR benchmarks highest setting. Highest temps seen with the case fully closed were 81* C while running the Time Spy Stress Test [99%]. Overall the experience went as well as can be expected given the current state of affairs. The card has performed admirably, IMO, and I would certainly recommend it for any 2K gamer.
