This is a great price/performance card. Yes it's a blower, yes it gets louder than other style coolers. Performance is great, and if you wear headphones like me, you won't hear anything anyway.

Be sure to use two separate 8pin PCIe cables from the PSU, the daisy chained one caused issues for me.

In my experience this card is not loud at all, it is significantly quieter than the hd7950 it replaced. undervolted and oc'd to 1600/1000, power limit set to 42%.

If you are after price/performance this is the card. I couldn't wait and bought my wife a 3mo used one for $205. Saved myself from waiting for MIR and paying tax. It's very loud and runs really hot. I use an Asus Rog Strix 1080Ti OC myself and that card never goes over 50C. This one hit 87C, guess I will try undervolting it. It will run anything at 1080p and 1440p for at least $100 cheaper than the new RX 5700. Get em while stocks last.

$250 *before* rebate still seems like a great price.

Remember when the RX590 was the $230 king?

I have this card and I've done alot of overclocking with it. But the easiest thing you can do is just go into the AMD tool and set it to auto undervolt and click apply and it should be a hell of alot better. You could even set the power limit to +50%. No matter what I do, it isn't really quiet but I found a happy place between sound/heat/performance. Also I got a card with samsung memory and flash the vega 64 bios.

Pulled the trigger, swapping my old r390, hoping for better Div2 fps at 1440

get a clue, rebate is by the mfr - nothing to do with Newegg

Good deal. The rebate stops this in its tracks. No dice since rebate involved. Especially with Newegg

Solid card. Bought for $280 + DMCV last year and it was worth that price.

Yes it's loud, but only if the fans are set to 100%.
Like another slickdealer said, you can set the fans to around 40-45% and even under full load the card will never overheat or throttle. And I live in Florida and game at 4K.

This is the best value for GPUs in recent memory. 1070 class performance out of box, 2070 class performance if you morph it. The downside is power usage. 400 watts to get 2070 class performance.

Dont get me wrong, i think this is an amazing value, but rebates are maddening to me. They almost never come back. I meticulously fill out the rebate forms every time. I just gave up.
