    Hi Gibbo, thinking of pushing the button on this one, would a 600w power supply with a ryzen 1600 be sufficient to this?

    Yes, but you want to be overclocking that 1600 if possible to get the most out of it.

    Recently sent my XT Gaming OC back with extreme coil whine.

    Just sitting on the Windows OS desktop produced some of the worst buzzing and whining I've ever heard.

    However despite this I'm considering giving the 5700 non-XT a chance... hopefully without the whining!

    ran fur mark for 1/2 hours . normally cuts cards that have extreme coil whine due to them not being stressed long enough in factories . If you'd managed to clone the XT bios and got a non XT you'd get a nice little boost in performance

    Tired all methods to be honest and got unbearable in the end and sent it back, disappointed and now on the look out for a new deal.

    no @GIGA-Man is away on Holiday but pretty sure Gigabyte will rma/swap card, specially within 14 day period if the Coil Whine is BAD and OCUK confirming it (although sods law would be plugged into different board and GPU and not happen )

    OcUK confirmed it was extreme coil whine and I asked for a refund rather than exchange. Not looked into a replacement until seeing this.

    fingers cross it was a bad batch if you pull trigger on non XT Gaming . Really surprised Gigabyte didnt do Windforce version at either 2 slots or 2 fans to keep more costs down

    Probably but it's put me off returning to a 5700 series cards after seeing reports via other communities of identical issues.

    These do seem to undervolt very well although granted have only messed with one (MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming X) but have read feedback about them from others including yourself. Undervolted to 1.075v and running at 2000MHz, now drawing about 140-150W max compared to 180-220W at stock. With a Ryzen 3700X I locked to 120W PPT, this could easily run on a 450W PSU with plenty left in the tank. No coil whine on this particular 5700 XT unit by the way.

    Gigabyte are known for bad batches of GPU's going out into the wild over the years just need to do a search in this forum to find them. 7850/7870 was one.

    everyone has bad batches . easy enough to see how GPUs are produced . all companies spend about 10 mins rest testing them in a factory with ear defenders on . long as it passes the test regardless of performance they pass .Gigabyte, zotac, asus all have videos up in their history of GPU production .

    Its how they deal with it is the key part, EVGA and their VRMs a few years ago is a case of very bad PR . aint seen the rep on here since

    Ordered a week ago with Gigabyte I know they had some troubles reaching my buy price target to make the price possible but they got there in end so stock should be on the way but my gut feeling says to expect delivery after Christmas.
