    Exclamation Strix Vega 64 - VRM cooling desaster

    Hey there.
    This is a friendly reminder for anyone who bought, or wants to buy this graphics card.
    You have to know, that Asus made a big mistake to the cooling design of this card, especially the VRM cooling is very bad. This makes the card very hot and noisy.
    Even the second revision isn't better at all, so you have to improve the cooling yourself, if you don't want to fry the board. Here is a video about the problem and a PDF document with my own tests - before and after the modification.
    Take care to your hardware.

    My own comparison:
