So, as some of you know already, I just picked up an RX 580 8GB ROG STRIX last week. It's been killing it. Performance is a bit above where my RX 480 was, and the VRAM headroom is allowing me to play at higher graphics. My tri-monitor set up (4.5m pixels(ish)) is running pretty well surprisingly.
The problem is, though, that during overclocking tests I started to notice pretty significant coil whine. Not just a bit, but pretty damn loud. Enough that I definitely wouldn't be able to play without headphones. So, I contacted ASUS about it, and they said it's still under warranty and that I can send it in for an RMA.
So, I think I'm going to do that, but I'll be without a GPU for a while. I think I'll force my wife onto my integrated graphics and use here PC, lol. It's only an RX-560, but should do the trick for now.
I was considering putting a bag full of candy in for the workers. I know that it's a pick me up surprise after a long day of work, so might make their day. I was thinking about leaving a semi-joke note saying something along the lines of "If you happen to accidentally drop a 1080ti/1080/1070ti/1070/Vega 56/Vega 64 in the box instead of an RX 580 because you are so wound up from the sugar, I wouldn't mind. ;)"
