    ASUS strix vega 64 user here, fixed it myself but feels bad that i needed to do it.
    ASUS says VRM 110 *C is working as intended.

    I don't get why we get these "premium" versions of non-premium products - it's just a way to raise the price-floor.

    They did really a bad job on the 5700 series especially the tuf models vrm and gddr6 are boiling .... I would highly advice none to buy em till someone test those .

    @KissSh0t I advise you to see what you can do to improve the situation, if you can't return the card already. Hardware Unboxed (youtube channel) made some modifications to one of the Asus cards and then it worked fine, not spectacular, but much better (for such a small mod). Good luck!

    Ohh it's fine, it's a known issue with this specific model of card, at the time of purchase even if I was to return it and get another there was a very high chance of the replacement having the same issue, all I need to do is undervolt the upper state by a little and it becomes stable to use, kinda makes me wonder if Asus even tested the card properly.

    I think the issue with Asus cards is that the screws don't properly screw the cooler to the card, there is bad contact with the GPU and such both GPU and VRAM get stupid high temps.
