Just saw a price drop for MSI 5700 XT. Not sure how good temps are compared to ASUS TUF EVO (609 AUD)
Hmm so I know that MSI Ventus is generally considered not great, but how does the Evoke go?
depends if it's the old stock or the updated version
What did they update?
Issue with the thermal pads, someone provided a youtube link below have a watch if you want :)
wow nice price op
Hopefully its the updated version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yE_i9wn7hgk
Too risky buying this card as thermal issues is unclear if they have already mended it. Here back lurking waiting for Gaming X to go on sale.
Gaming X is top tier, but it's fat af.
Came for the deal, staying for the Rajeh analysis..
I'd ask Centrecom how new their stock is, because of the thermal pad issue which plagued the earlier models. I have a MECH OC and the thermal pads were all off center, and 2 if them were a little small. It also had horrendous hotspot temperatures, which I think the EVOKE was affected by too. According to LTT's VGA PCB, VRM and Cooling tier list the "fixed" models are A-tier.
I've submitted a ticket - will wait and see.
Centrecom say they've had the stock for about 4 months.
You'd think that it would be the revised version given that youtube vid was from November 2019 but I guess no guarantee it wasn't sitting at a disty prior to that.
For $20 more just get the Pulse. Don't mess with MSI, the lazy manufacturer.

Source 2: I have the V1 MECH.
What would you guys say the Radeon RX 5700 XT compares to on the green team? I would like a few suggestions, thanks.
Somewhere between 2600 Super and 2700 Super.
5600xt vs 2070 super
5600xt vs 2060 super
I've been watching all these 5700xt deals come and go the last few months and I have been holding back because of the announcements of the new AMD and NVIDIA cards. However, I can't help but think that these certain cards along with the 2070/2070S won't go down that much in price without having to wait at least until Q1/Q2 of 2021….I might be wrong but the market seems a bit fragile at the moment due to the pandemic.
Exactly the reason I gave up waiting and bought one (asus 5700 xt evo) this morning.
Can confirm that the model I recieved has thermal pads between the backplate and card so I believe that indicates that it is the revised edition.
I have now realised that the card didnt ship with the coupon for https://www.amd.com/en/gaming/raise-the-game and that possibly Centre com are not a participating retailer which is really annoying, I was too busy looking into the historic faults of this card that I didnt even think to check that. :( :(
Centrecom came through with the goods, thier marketing team provided me the coupon within 24 hours of me raising a support ticket.
Hey, how have you found the card? I know the main issue (once with updated thermals) was the fan noise.
Is it that noisy with the fans spinning towards max? I saw a review which showed comparison, and while it was noiser, it really wasn't that bad imo. Others have really gone on and on about the noise of the fans though.
I've been really happy with it, have only really played PUBG so far and the thermals have been fine to the point that the fans rarely even ramp up so I can hardly comment on noise as I havnt even experienced it sweat yet.
Is whisper quiet during general use as the fans switch off under 60c.
All in all very happy with my purchase.
Awesome. Thanks man!
