Gets a little hot6/22/2020 6:24:24 PM

Pros: - Insane Performance - Competitive Price - Nice simple design - isn't super long in length

Cons: The card gets hot out of the box. Running games under load the GPU would reach temps of 84C, throttling at 85C. I don't have the best airflow in my case (NZXT H510 Elite), but out of the box the temps are pretty unreasonable. I was able to fix this by undervolting it in MSI afterburner. I lost zero performance, and now under load the hottest it gets is around 68C.

Overall Review: This is a great GPU, but you should heavily consider undervolting it to make it run cooler. There are loads of guides out there on how to do it. My undervolt isn't even super aggressive and I saw temps drastically improve.
