No, the worse was the MSI Evoke and the second worse were the xfx cards. This is midranged in terms of thermals and cooling. Not that bad for 300$ especially since you can mod the bios to make it a 5700xt for free.
I have the xfx 5700 dd ultra and cooling is great. It has the thicc cooler. The only knock on it was for the XT model where the default bios had the fans not spinning up until 100c. That was fixed on the XT card with a Bios update(or could have been fixed with a fan curve adjustment). The cooler is good, the software was like wtf!? None of those issues with the 5700 though...

I suggest to get this instead

2070 Super which is cheaper than the black friday deal and comes with a power link. i think it may be a price mistake
Nah, those 2070s are end of life cards. What he needs is a 5700xt with proper cooling and build quality like Red Devil or Strix.

It is very lightweight. Looks fine though, I had used two of these in 5700 XT variant, a bit noisy at times, heatsink is not very big really. One of the cards caused crashes and I am waiting for it to get back to me to check, but I think its PSUs fault.
BTW, don't skimp in the PSU, I've used some 5700 XT with 600 W and a few had crashing issues, replaced with 700W (all EVGA) and a few of issues went away, others were fixed with BIOS updates and newer drivers.
That's a good point. The 5700 series cards can just cause crashes though (any card can). I'm in the process of sending a 5700XT back because it makes my computer crash anytime it's used (brand new 750w PSU that is completely stable with other cards). I like the performance of the 5700 series but so far haven't had good luck with stability.

True but it's pretty much easy to unlock the frequencies on the 5700 and then you're basically running a 5700 XT for $300. The few missing steam processors seen to change very little.

The cooling system is supposed to be a bit loud on this one though.
I'm doing this on a blower-style card with great results. Running a slightly undervolt drops temperatures (and fan noise) considerably too.

Rumors are the 5500 cards will be announced tomorrow so if you're looking for something a little cheaper, those will be out soon.

What are you talking about? The 2070 Super was released literally half a year ago, that's very recent.

Evoke was fixed recently and have you tried XFX Raw II cards? These are awesome, the best so far from all 5700 XT flavors - quietest and coolest. Used a dozen without a single issue/ Blower style ones gave me the most issues, even besides noise.

A decent deal since ASRock is normally better than the names like Zotac and PNY. However, I've seen plenty of complaints regarding the stability and noise of 5700/5700XT -- so won't jump in unless it's a red devil or an EVGA card.

You guys can't even run a 5700 with a 600W PSU? Everyone knows AMD cards wasted power but hot damn seriously? Wasn't this supposed to be a noticeable improvement on Vega?

I know people running 5700 XT's successfully on 500-600Watt units. I wouldn't recommend 500, but my friend is planning on rebuilding the rest of his system with parts he got over the sales recently. He picked up the GPU about a month or so ago though and has been using it just fine on his current power supply.
Of course I'm sure the quality of the power supply can be a point of concern, but you really don't need 600 watts even for just a regular 5700, unless you have some other weird power draw issues.
I also see people make these comments sometimes about how they're having trouble with much larger power supplies, but then you find out the power supply they have is like 9 years old. It's possible that a really old unit may be developing some issues as well...that have nothing to do with the total power capacity of the unit and maybe other failures are causing the issue.
In other words, people like to spout all types of bullshit with no evidence. Give the same credence to those types of comments as you would anything you see posted on Facebook.

FYI, this is a very good deal if you plan to upgrade the BIOS to RX 5700XT. I have a founders RX 5700 (w. blower). I just built a PC with Ryzen 2600 and 16Gb of ram. I did the BIOS update, which is very easy if you follow one of the youtube tutorials. I am currently playing COD MW (2019) on an ultrawide 1440p monitor @ avg 100FPS on high setting.

This card pulls about 225W under full load. So a 500W PSU should be more than enough, granted you shouldn't reach 80% power load of what your PSU can deliver for optimal usage, but 50% is generally the goal for best efficiency. If your computer is pretty barebones without a lot of HDDs and without a lot of accessories, 500W is perfectly fine, although I'd recommend spending for a Gold class PSU so power delivery is more efficient; heck, you shouldn't buy less than Gold class anyway.

Also, for those with issues with the video card, use two separate PSU cables to power the video card's connectors. Don't use the daisy chain capability on one cable.

If the 5700 Challenger D is anything like the 5700 XT Challenger, it runs hot.
Hottest GPU temp for a 3rd party fan setup.
Worst VRM performer.

I came here to post that review. I don't understand why people buy the worst product and think it's a deal. It's priced exactly where it's supposed to be. This is a regular price.

Then some people keep talking about flashing the BIOS to XT. The card already can't handle non-XT speeds. I can't imagine how hot it will run. It might actually throttle due to the heat. I wonder if any non-XT models have coolers that can handle XT speeds.

Lastly, non-XT models have 10% less shader units. Flashing won't unlock those.

Here is a performance summary of 5700 and various other cards.
