    First thing I'm gonna do when I get home (after I bomb pearl harbour) will be to check my Vega 64 Reference works, seocnd will be to strap on an AIO, have fun, and count down until EK release the aluminum block for it ^^

    How much temp difference are you getting from undervolting?

    Please let me know how you get on with an AIO, I don't think the Kraken will fit though? How are you planning on mounting it?

    I'm testing now and keeping this thing from throttling is quite hard! the fans running at 3891 sound like a hand dryer!

    As soon as GPU goes above 77c it will pull back and clocks start waving around...

    That's my order cancelled, awaiting stock on the 29th, yet someone yesterday was told stock was arriving today. Can't be arsed with yet more waiting, and you would have thought they would mail us to tell us that there was a delay despite ordering when the site said it was in stock. Not happy. :mad: Apparently I wasn't fast enough ordering despite ordering at 2:05. :rolleyes:

    Even if I wanted to cancel my order which I don't, I'd still be made to wait until the refunds back in my account before I can use the money to order a 1080 or 1080ti.
    They apparently can't even find the second order I made yesterday for an 850 watt EVGA G3 psu but they found my account to the money for it okay,
    I suppose I need to phone back up about that but I'm too p**sed off at the moment and don't want to start venting at someone over the phone.

    Cancelling the order means that if we decide we want one again it'll be at the higher price so I'm going to wait it out.

    I'm going to remove the plastic shroud, then the heatsink, I'm going to cable tie an Asetek Siberian Tiger (H50) to the GPU, then I'm going to hole saw the shorud from a HD5870 and cable tie that to the Vega in place of it's own shroud.

    Basic e-commerce fail at OCUK, but I suspect someone messed up!

    Having supported GTA5 and Iphone 6 launches across 2 big online companies i know its highly pressurized and sometimes its down to a simple wrong order count in the warehouse or products placed in the wrong bins.

    Oh well i mess with PC tech that infrequently that i'm not really that bothered.
    I may explore Green cards, not had one since 6800 128MB LE edition and Doom 3 days.

    Personally, I really like the look of the black card over the silver one.

    When you say "in a bit" does that mean in a couple of hours or a few weeks? I wouldn't have bothered swapping out the old card myself until I had everything. I am lazy :)

    True but we're already going down the rabbit hole of being told different estimates, someone yesterday was told sapphire aio cards were due in today, i was told the 29th, yorkshirepadd was told the 28th. Can't really be bothered going through all that bs again.

    This is the name of the driver file I downloaded last night: win10-64bit-radeon-rx-vega-software-17.30.1051-b6-aug7.exe. I've looked again just now and can't find any other Vega drivers, nor any specifically labelled as 17.8.1.

    Same boat as you. The guy in the OCUK sales (phone)was confident yesterday there was stock for my liquid, because had cancelled the paypal one and reordered with my business card. But today called and told me end of month or September. And given I didn't want initially the Sapphire but Gigabyte due to custom watercooling policy, going to cancel. Is shame because if I knew then there is no stock, I could have ordered from elsewhere they had stock and could have collected the card last night.

    And given the new pricing for the liquid now is £700 (rrp actually) but without the discount vouchers for the 1700X/1800X in UK, AMD can sell mine to a miner. He will buy from them the next one also.........(sarcasm).

    My order was 14:26 and is "in process" so not likely to join the owners club any day soon it would appear.... really don't want to cancel as I've been happy (mostly) in the past with my AMD cards. If I cancel then my last AMD machine will go green and that will likely be the end my AMD GPU journey. Having read all about delaying launch to ensure sufficient card stocks and being somewhat annoyed at the alleged last-minute attempt to dissuade reviewers from publishing Vega 64 reviews - in favour of reviewing a product that's not even close to launch yet instead.....

    I really do hope that, as stated elsewhere, AMD UK are reading these posts. They have the opportunity to turn a fairly bad launch (in terms of high pricing destroying the Vega price/performance value proposition completely) into a complete disaster by not being able to restock retailers for weeks. Just glad I didn't fire off the pre-order to EK for the water block now. Shame I sold my 295X2 in advance... :(

    The powercolor AIO appears to have landed at OcUK (3) but at very high price and also the blower flavour is in bolton and is available to buy.

    Aye, seems to have been a massive **** up on ocuk's end to say the least. They were slow to get the cards listed, they didn't even show in their own sections and you had to follow a forum link to access them, which makes me dubious about the claim they had over 1000 cards considering they weren't visible on the site for some time.

    Yeah for the usual "supply and demand" bend over and take it dry mark up, i'll pass. From £638, to £700, to £780, they're really taking the ****.

    Second price mark up inside of 24 hours, hilarity ensues.

    That is the 17.8.1 beta 6 driver, AMD naming schemes FTW!

    They are being shipped from ek on 18th apparently. I want to put the card is system to see if it's working ok before I add the cover and backplate to it. Will just run it at stock boost until the EK goodies arrive.
