This says "First From Asia", but also free 3-day shipping, so I'm not totally sure how long it will take.

These were as cheap as $55 last year, but are never in stock.

I have one of their cases, and it came in just a few days. I think they are the same as amazon companies. They are sold by them but fulfilled by the main company they're are listed on. Because it says sold by X company, but shipped by X company.

I know these things run hot (I have a 56), but why spend $75 for maybe an extra 3-5% performance over stock + undervolt?

Maybe put two 120mm fans, thus get very quiet cooler?

Reference cards were running ~$150 cheaper than versions with better coolers when I bought my 64, figured it was worth it even if I eventually upgraded the cooler. I'm tempted to get this because the blower is loud and the card still runs quite hot.

Bought my Vega 64 over a year ago. This is worth it to reduce noise levels. Also with the summer right around the corner, going to need that extra cooling. Other then a waterblock, this is the only custom cooling option available for a reference Vega. Ordered it yesterday, shipped from Newegg in CA, will be here by Wed, not bad.

I've never added an aftermarket cooler for vga before, but you might want to look into how the memory and mosfets are cooled. Not sure if you'll need additional parts like those little finned heatsinks to stick onto them.

Raijintek's website [raijintek.com] specifies that it comes with 24 small heatsinks to cool the VRAM and 1 large heatsink to cool the VRM.

I have the Morpheus II for the non-Vega cards and I'm guessing this is the exact same thing except it comes with the mounting hardware for Vega. It's a very good cooler and even with two 120mm fans on it, it stays very cool and quiet. Unfortunately, the only 120mm fans I have laying around are 25mm thick (standard size for case fans) and after adding this to my GTX 1070, it turned a 2 slot card into a 5 slot behemoth. It does come with mounting hardware for 12.5mm wide fans, but I didn't have any and didn't want to spend more money on it either.

While motherboards and GPUs are designed to handle some flex, I would recommend using some kind of GPU brace to hold this up because it is heavy. I ended up swapping out my Morpheus II for the hybrid cooler for my GTX 1070.

I feel like this will void your warranty for 5% gain

I've done several aftermarket coolers for vga. The memory for Vega is on the die with the GPU, so the heatsink takes care of that. The kit comes with heatsinks for the mosfets. This kit is specifically kitted for Vega. You just have to get the mini PWM to 4-pin PWM adapter if you want to control the fans through the card. I got some Noctua pressure fans and they will work nicely.

Just installed it. The directions suck and the kit doesn't have all the right parts for Vega 64. It's huge, takes up at least 3 slots. However, gaming temps are steady at 55 degrees, that's almost a 25 degree drop. Put Noctua fans on it, running at 25% max, whisper quiet. So despite the tough installation, its worth it.
