    from completed build RX 480 FTW!!!

    No OC is planned, and I didn't mess with WattMan, so at stock it performs as expected, can't wait for more dx12 games to rock. Temps up to 85C, with fans up to 53%. Surprisingly quiet for a reference, IMHO very good fan profile, with more aggressive profile it could get cooler but loud, not worth it.

    The absolute star of my build and a treat to work with and use. Lovely color scheme on the reference cooler and performs exactly as advertised. Only concern is that it runs hot but hey its a reference card so thats unavoidable. Can handle 1080p like a charm and record at the same time at 60 fps when paired with a decent CPU.

    I originally bought these for the backplate and the higher clocks, I bought the first one when there weren't any 3rd party coolers available yet and had to get the second to match. Then I ditched it all and had to upgrade the coolers to Arctic Accelero Twin Turbo II. Very quiet and very cool but was it worth it??? Probably not, plus the stickers don't match my red and black build so I'm going to have to do something about that.... They used to throttle and I would get warnings about my GPU being in the mid 80s so I'm not going to rate them as 5 stars.

    This thing is awesome. If you play at 1080p everything runs at max great.

    Absolutely amazing card and build quality is outstanding even for a reference card. I have zero reservations about buying an XFX product from now on. With hindsight I could've gone with a black edition card but that doesn't matter. I feel like I hit the jackpot with this card given how well it performed wile it was on air. However, -1 star for having a warranty voided by removing the cooler. Come on, XFX, many manufacturers don't do that anymore because they know many people are going to remove the cooler for water cooling or a deep clean.

    Now overtaken by the beefier cousin, RX 580, the RX 480 is still a beastly video card for 1080p gamers. I was eyeing a 970, boom $100 cheaper out comes a beast with more VRAM.

    I regret getting the reference cooler somewhat. No game fails to reach the thermal throttling point, but my FPS doesn't get docked too much so that's good.

    Blower fan isn't too loud. Comes with a little factory overclock. Excellent performance, would recommend. I think this is the cheapest reference card right now, that shouldn't scare you, it even has a backplate which other refs. don't have! OC'd to 1335mhz stable.

    Great performance at 1080p. LOL (max fps), Overwatch (110 fps), and PubG (50 fps) on max settings.

    I got it pretty cheap, Fps on any game I've tried is phenomenal, despite heavier games making it sound like a car engine

    This part came from the old build as i progressively upgraded the old one. i got this in July 2016 (I believe) so i didn't pay an arm and a leg for this one.
