That case is HUGE.

ID: himrhml

Phanteks 719, designed to be able to hold a full ATX system and an ITX system at the same time.

edit: also the Phanteks Enthoo Pro 2, same design more airflow.

Makes sense for streaming (streaming pc in ITX, main PC in ATX).

Phanteks 719

hey thanks for saying the name of my next case, didn't even know it existed and Obsidian 1000D is almost triple the price lol. getting it soon haha thanks m8

I know right, I have the same card in a H500M and I thought that was excessive.

ATX Full Towers FTW!

That’s like triple the performance, enjoy!

ID: hinq84n

Thanks, man!

ID: hinuuch

Damn now I want to replace mine too

ID: hipoici

No kidding. I have the Red Dragon triple fan cooler and it does a great job at 1080p but 2x or even 3x performance sounds pretty nice and opens up high refresh rate 1440 or even 4k. I think my R5 1600 needs a replacement first tho.

A bit over double. Still solid AF 🙂

XFX merc are the best looking cards IMO

ID: himz5ja

I like my Red Devil a bit better.

ID: hin1h5g

Red Devil and Merc were my top choices but couldn't find any Red Devil here. They're both nice looking cards

How much did you get for your vega56? 7-800€?

ID: himv6qz

I got $300 CAD for my Vega 64 when I sold in October 2020. I was a fool. 🙂

ID: hin0nl0

Got $350 USD for my Vega 64 in December. Also a fool.

ID: hin1ama

Got 400€ for my 5700XT in Jan 2021 right before the craze started. I wasnt that bad becouse thats what I bought it for but If I had waited a couple of monthes I could have gotten way more. Some sold their 5700XT for 7-900€ here in Sweden.

ID: hin8w41

I've sold mine last week for 700€. Then got a 6700 XT for 700€...

ID: hinqtcq

I let a friend borrow it for now. Notes taken so I won't be the next fool haha

All black system, very nice

Damn, that is one sexy AIO; what are the specs?

8 : Anonymous2021/10/30 10:08 ID: himkiwq

If you haven’t already, you should sell your Vega 56. It’s a beastly mining card with its HBM2 memory, (50MH ETH, 200MH ERG), you should get at least $800 for that card.

Is that a screen? What is it for?

ID: himfyhl

Most likely to show temps. CPU, GPU, FPS, etc. With that said, helluva build, OP. And what a major upgrade!

10 : Anonymous2021/10/30 17:54 ID: hio30ig

I was going to upgrade from my Radeon VII, but its been so long since the 6000 series was released that at this point, I'm just going to wait for the 7000 series.

11 : Anonymous2021/10/30 10:01 ID: himjzbb

Do you sell your old 56? It is impossible to find a decent graphic card here for a normal price in the Netherlands

12 : Anonymous2021/10/30 11:48 ID: himsiur

Loving the aesthetic of the all black build, looks great.

13 : Anonymous2021/10/30 12:41 ID: himxib5

I have a undervolted overclocked Vega 64 with 2560x1080 75hz and it’s a beast few games cannot be handled by it at 75fps on ultra. But honestly I would buy 6800/6900 even if I need 75 hz hahaha

14 : Anonymous2021/10/30 15:36 ID: hinj4uy

I did the same. Sapphire V56 Pulse to Powercolor 6900XT Red Devil.

Very happy with it but now I need a new CPU. 3700X can be a big bottleneck in some situations. Even with ~20% improvement from memory tuning.

ID: hinsz4u

Same man, but I think I'm gonna hold off upgrading for now and patiently wait for Zen 4 series

Sold mine got a 6800 at msrp, sold that got a 6900xt at msrp.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/30 15:06 ID: hinezow

I love big cases and blackout designs. My 6900XT has been working like a Swiss watch with the recent drivers (over the past couple of months or so). A month or so after it came out I was getting a bit disappointed with stability, but now it's great. Glad I didn't give up on it.

Think a tear just rolled down my face. This is beautiful

Why upgrade? Vega 56 is a monster

ID: himssfv

Eh, as a former V64 owner it was starting to show it's age. Definitely a decent card still absolutely, but I have no regrets upping the ante to a 6800

ID: himy6ir

I got in love with Hbm2, I always though that 6900 should be launched with hbm2 /e, less power consumption, higher bandwidth, just for 200USD more, it will be competitive with 3090 as well

ID: hin27h7

Vega 56 is kinda struggling with 1440p 144hz gaming already. And also got the Asus Strix model with Hynix memory which is a problematic one.

ID: himrbz9

Vega 56 enjoyer here. Maybe OP is going to play at 4K resolution. In that case, Vega 56 is not enough these days to properly perform on highly demanding titles.

I'm playing at 1080p and still holds on incredibly well, though. Only thinking I bought it brand new 2+ years ago for a little more than 250€... I really dodged a bullet there, I guess.

ID: himxuxk

I have a 64 with undervolted it takes 240w out of power supply and give me 75fps on 2560x1080 in almost every game, high settings. Very happy with it. But damn those rdna cards are from other planet

ID: himspcu

same. bought it for exactly 250€ during the time these were on sale on europe. what a steal!

Nice! What's your temps on it?

What are you using for the GPU riser cable?
