    Well, whenever Canadian provinces start petitioning for US statehood so that they can better participate in the world's largest market... ;)

    I would just ship it to a friend in the states who can ship it to me. no tax that way either.

    but I would prefer a straight ship route

    same issue. Newegg.com wont ship to canada, they make you use newegg.ca. The issue with newegg.ca is that for video cards the price is still +10-30% higher then the exchange rate.

    and fuck that.

    Ordered one. Trying to call Newegg to see if they can upgrade the shipping since I have a newegg account and a i9 9900k arriving tomorrow from them.

    Definitely decent purchase. Even though got my Gaming X 1080 TI for $650, this one is a compelling argument in AMDs favor. At 4k this may be less a deal, but 1080p, 1440p and 3440x1440 it's a solid pick. BF and CM may have better selection based on the AIB cooling for similar pricing, but if you need it probably good to pick this one up.

    I run all of my games at 4K on my Sapphire Nitro Vega 64. A few dip below 60 but still provide a smooth experience. When Vega 64 is UV and tuned it sits comfortably between 1080 and 1080 Ti. At $399 this is a great deal.

    Purchased one. That deal is just too good to pass up on. I'll roll the dice that there won't be a significantly better deal around the holidays. ;)

    Use a freight forwarder. Bonus is sometimes they don't put values on the shipping inside burgerland, so the forwarder will 'ask how much it costs'. Great chance to slip a decimal place ;) worked for me with some scientific gear lol.

    Yeah this is almost at V56 crazy sale level I doubt you will get a new Vega 64 cheaper ever really... this is 'clearing stock out' cheap levels.

    Anyone know if the sapphire has the good packaging or the shitty molded design that's not even...?

    Single fan reference design isn’t quiet.

    I am under the impression from my mining crowd (know of at least 100 VEGA samples with ~30+ being from the last 6-9 months old) and nobody has had any issues with that. I believe AMD was quick to rein in the QC allowances when it became known last fall.

    If this is a reference model, one would be crazy to not do a hybrid cooling mod like GN did with a 120mm/240mm AIO cooler on the die and HBM...Undervolt and watch your core boost sit at 1650+ with very nice temps. I am so tempted to pick up another one but I do not want to tear my loops down to add in another card...i could do another air cooled card in my current rig since I have a dual slot vertical gPU mount and I can use a riser to a PCI-E 1X (this would be for mining since 3 56s give me plenty of gaming power) but I would want a quiet air cooler...

    Is it safe to disassemble the card and remove the stock paste, apply some Super 33+ tape around the contacts and tape around it then throw on some Liquid Metal, then flash the LC (Liquid cooling) Bios on a reference blower?

    Honestly you get this card to tweak it a little. I have mine undervolted to 1025mv and power +50% and using about 225w in fire strike ultra. Latest tomb raider it was around 180-200w. So less than 250w. If you can find the sweet spot that’s the way to get it done with these cards.

    Well crap, was so tempted, it just has to be a lousy reference design that's a great deal, just don't think I'll be able to tolerate the noise compared to my Sapphire R9 290 Vapor X, I so want a new GPU. I will restrain and keep waiting. Damn you AMD, shit or get off the pot already.

    It's a targeted offer, I'm signed up for ebucks but it doesn't show 8% for me. eBay is known for targeted offers for certain accounts.

    The Newegg one now has a 10% off promo code which brings it close to their ebay price.

    So tempted. Yet my R9 Fury is still so surprisingly capable and quiet...
