    As title states looking for some effective ideas for helping cool gigabyte vega56 gaming oc edition. So the non reference card/PCB board design, so can't use aftermarket cooling from what I read.

    Through undervolting and raising power percentage on core clock I can get ~1650-1700mhz boost at around 1060-1080v . The only issue is the hot spot temp which works it's way up in temp . If set on stock turbo setting in waterman card overheats hits 105 hot spot and shuts of down completely. With the undervolt temp tends to stay under 85degress.

    So just looking to hear some ideas people may have tried or thought of to help dissipate the heat a bit more .

    Overall what a card when it's running.

    Overclocking Vega's is really hard on air and your best bet will probably be either to put it on water or to look for these older aftermarket GPU coolers. There are people who have found ways to use coolers like the arctic accelero on newer cards.

    GPU Block would be the best or with well air-conditioned room 20-21 degC

    Can try one of the top thermal pastes(non-conductive/corrosive).

    Gelid GC-Extreme or Arctic MX-4

    Maybe place a decent fan to blow at the card. Make sure case ventilation is good.
