Avoid this card like the plague... it's literal hot garbage, though it's slightly better than the TUF variant which has even more serious issues with heat transfer from the onboard GDDR memory.

Yes, the short version is this card is an engineer's great design (typical of Asus) gone to crap in execution due to the hyper aggressive BIOS settings and horrifyingly bad QC when implementing the cooling solution. The card sucks power and generates heat way beyond any reasonable measure of normal, and the cooling solution is often in poor contact with board components leading to overheating, throttling and/or excessive fan noise.

You'd be better off buying a cheap XFX 5700 DD model for $309, removing all of the plastic shrouding + backplate and then do a softmod/BIOS flash to hit 5700xt performance.

Seems like there are a few models that have thermal issues.. Need to be careful (I don't know which one is good).
Any brand models to avoid aside from this one?

Asus has been going downhill for years. I won't say the company I worked for, but in rma we replaced Asus parts at a 3 to 1 ratio to other 3rd party manufacturers.

I heard MSI had the same heating issues and XFX put out a bunch of revisions to "fix" thr previous laziness. I have the gigabyte one and although thr rma is garbage and thr support has no idea what a computer even is. The thermals are very solid.

I think a big negative trend is in looks over function in these cards... and the trends towards enclosed shrouds allows the manufacturers to hide all sorts of shortcuts under gaudy plastic and LED lighting that often detracts from performance and/or makes the card run louder.

Manufacturers try to cram the same cooler design into as many cards as possible (EVGA I'm looking at you) even it takes a C4 size block of cooling pad to connect VRM / RAM to the cooler... Or the stupidity of some of these backplate and plastic shroud designs that make the card run 10-15 degrees hotter than it would by just removing them (XFX THICC). In the case of Asus, just plain bad quality control, which is truly a shame with the Strix card as the ASUS got high marks for it's electrical design but clearly whoever is then assigned to engineer or adapt a cooler and produce the thing cut every corner possible... and then assigned an insanely high launch price based on the brand name.

Yo, I had this card and it was and probably still is absolute trash. It looks so nice, but this thing would get incredibly hot and loud, I returned it 2 weeks into owning it, thank goodness for Microcenters 30 day gpu return policy. I've watched countless reviews since I returned it, and they have the same issues I had.

Is there a cheap water block that'll work for the XFX DD? I've been looking at the 5700 XT Liquid Devil and Red Devil cards from PowerColor, but the LD is $600 when it's in stock.

Buy the basic XFX 5700 DD, remove all of the plastic shrouding and backplate and it will run about 10- 12 degrees cooler... then BIOS mod it to a 5700xt. These are $309 at B&H with free shipping right now.
