    So my friend is an musician and decided to sell his gaming PC to buy more "music stuff". We dont see each other that much, hes busy, im busy. He called me and said he have something i might be interested in for a fairly cheap price so i went there...

    Then i saw the Aorus RX580 8GB XTR, one of the best binned 580 on the market. Guess what happened next...

    Nice card.

    Should hold up for a year or two.

    Hope you didn't pay too much for it.

    Payed 140€ for it but i sold my 280X for 40€.

    At the end for a 100€ i think its worth it. :)

    For that price, yeah it's probably worth it.

    I had a golden sample reference 7970 that did 1400 on the core.

    It was water cooled, but its legs went a little early and had to use the over trick in the last year to keep it running. Just sold it as faulty for £30 in the end.

    So probably a good time to move up to something newer.

    Mine goes up to 1480MHz without manually adjusting the voltage. Increased to the max voltage using AFterburner, so 1250mv but it is only stable up to 1500MHz. Maybe 1510MHz but didn't try. So I just left it to auto. What's more interesting is that increasing the memory clock speed to anything between 2000 - 2100 MHz without adjusting voltage actually decreases the score in both Superposition and Firestrike. So I am thinking it needs more voltage. Anyone knows what's the maximum safe voltage for the memory?

    You had 1400mhz on a 7970?! That's insane!

    There was a few of them actually.

    MSI reference models bought from OCUK. All from the same batch, I think.

    AMDMatt had one as well.

    140€ for an RX 580 (8GB) is a really good deal. Also 1480MHz (core) is very good. My factory overclocked Gaming X 8G can barley maintain 1390MHz without freaking out.

    A word of advice if you're on Windows 10 (1809) don't use any game overlays (afterburner, radeon settings or steam) or else you may run into (or not) unwanted game crashes.
