It is basically impossible to use the standard baseplate without heavy mods. I went with those included heatsinks. It is not ideal and certainly not the prettiest heatsink array but it is all I can do. Unfortunately I don’t have more separate heatsinks, so that is all the cooling I can provide right now. I guess it’s ok … I hope.
Thanks AMD for that gap on the PCB where the original fan was, my cable-mess fits right in.
And there she is, that hungry, heavy, fat bitch of a Vega64.
I haven’t stress tested the card yet but it posts.
So far for now. Now back to building other stuff.
