Merry Christmas everyone!

Recommended Posts

It definitely feels very Christmas-y over here with that 10cm of snow in Calgary. Lol just kidding, I'm hanging out where it's a nice +20c with no snow :lol:

Haha after Christmas yes XD. In Canada we have Boxing Day, so I caved and bought an MSI RX480 8GB... Originally purchased the Gigabyte variant, but that card ran loud and hot (typical for AMD XD). The MSI is much better in that regard now.

From what I understand, it was specifically an issue with the RX480 Windforce, since they used not as good VRM parts. I would see 80c temps in Overwatch, and the fan would be pretty quiet. I updated the BIOS on the GPU and then it ran cooler (~50c), but much much louder. The MSI is better as it stays still relatively quiet while remaining at ~50c temps.
