    Triple slot cooler, wonder if that will put the crypto currency miners off if they can't fit so many in a frame.

    I am more interested in a Vega 56 that is actually available to buy and around the original RRP.

    Wonder why gigabyte went away from offering 3 fans? We've just had MSI revert to the GPU standard of 3

    Either the 3rd fan offered limited improvement in cooling or their trying not to undercut the Aorus range.

    The listed power requirements are 750w for air, and 1k for water. Obviously they're being very conservative with the amount of substandard psu's out there. The highest tdp I've seen on the air vega was just under 500w. So the water cooling unit adds a bit more.

    That would still need a good quality 750w psu for a water vega. The custom cool'ed 1080ti's barely break 400w.

    I use an 850w, but I thought that was just me being silly and going overkill. If I wanted Vega I might actually have to get the board draw calculator out.

    VEGA costs way too much now, might as well get a 1080ti for this money.
