    Honestly don't get why people are hating on the blower cooler so hard.

    The much vaunted RTX dual-fan stock cooler on the 2060 super only saves a few degrees over the 5700 at the same power draw and noise profile (according to the RX 5700 review). If the NV cooler was hitting low 70s I could kind of get it, but Hexus had it ramping up to 78C, v 82C for the 5700. That's really not a significant difference, is it...

    I'm with you, and the design blows ALL THE WARM AIR out of the back of the case.. all my older AMD cards with that style have been great performers

    AMD needs to stop with the Blower Coolers once and for all. Nobody likes them and they don't cool the card properly. Not to mention they are LOUD. Because of this, I am going to have to wait for custom coolers until I buy a 5700XT.

    First commenter: AMD's blower coolers are just as quiet as NVidia's and keep the cards at about the same temperature
    Second commenter: I really like AMD's blower coolers

    I think it's more about noise levels with the blower reference cards, though I'm not sure what Anandtech and Hexus did differently, with Hexus getting 39 dB but Anandtech got 50 dB on Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Maybe Tomb Raider was the loudest result Anandtech could find gaming wise and Hexus result was an average:



    If the partner cards could knock off 5-10 dB from the noise levels, they would be worth the wait imo.

    HardwareCanucks though demostrated a noise comparison and came up with similar results to Anandtech:

    I actually prefer the thinner/narrower form factor of reference blower cards personally, too many partner cards are spreading out width wise in my view.

    Idle noise levels are also much higher in the Anandtech review (AT's idle noise levels are higher than Hexus' load noise levels?!), but core temperatures are actually slightly lower … there's definitely some artefact of testing methodology affecting those results...

    Yes well spotted, confusing. In the Palit RTX 2070 Super JS Hexus review the RX 5700s show up at 39 dB noise levels on load again. Techpowerup have the idle noise at 27 dB and load noise of 43dB.. the AT results do seem to be at the high end.

    I don't hate them, it'd just be nice to have the choice of blower or AIB solutions on day 1. I'm looking at it from a noise perspective and the blowers tend to lose out on that score.

    I don't care what Nvidias reference is doing, I'd like a range of cards on launch (red or green team,) with different cooling options so that those who want maximum airflow/cooling/quiet can pick the option appropriate to them.

    Are all the publications using open test benches? That could be influencing the results

    I prefer larger, all things being equal a card with more volume for the fin stack or thicker fans should be cooler and quieter (or at least have the potential to be). The extra room in my case isn't doing much, so for my application (i.e. not using multi-GPU or an ITX/DTX case, and with a GPU support built into my case) I don't see a downside

    Those hexus results are (very probably) from the same tests as the numbers in the 5700 review, no need to re-test everything so soon

    Re: Custom cooler Radeon RX 5700 GPUs to arrive mid August

    Hardware Canucks appear to be taking their results from an open test bench RX 5700 being 48 dB, so maybe something else is happening there, like scaryjim suggested. Maybe HWCanucks have a very intensive test, I could just see in the corner of the monitor, the graphics going crazy in video. Had a quick look at AT again and they're testing with a NZXT Phantom 630 Windowed Edition case, but doesn't say if the side is off or not, but that'll explain it probably.

    Edit: Although the Hexus review was apparently not open bench test it was using a "be quiet! Dark Base 700" case? .. and Hexus pulled off 39 dB? Anandtech 50 dB within a case and HWCanucks got 48.7 dB open bench test for the 5700? Hmm..

    On liking the narrower card form factor, I have an older CoolerMaster case with a brushed aluminium effect which I'm fond of, but it is narrower than today's cases, so more narrower cards give me more options. Broader cards would work out it'll just be a tighter fit and I'd prefer a bit of space around it. The case has front airvents and fans and the HX 520W has a fan on the underside just above the cpu and any potential graphics card so I'm sorted cooling wise. The blower style card might be actually be quite appropriate for the older case like AMD said anyway. I've seen narrow Gigabyte and MSI RX 580 AIB cards too so maybe they're going to repeat that style this generation. My Wraith stealth cooler I'm pretty sure kicks out 45+ dB noise anyway with load so I'll probably be used to the 45-50dB level of noise.

    Asus says its own Radeon RX 5700 Series designs will be coming along in September.

    "We’ll be tweaking, tuning, and powering up these new Radeons with coolers of our own design soon. Stay tuned for more details in September."

    I'd say that's one hell of an advert for the case, personally
