Ahh it was a great one. First ran her with an old sapphire when I built this pc in 2014 Upgraded to a 970 a year later which I ran until Jan 2019, switched for a 1070. Eventually let her go when I switched for a 2600x, and the difference is incredible.
You're dead right about the heat tho. It was like running a small nuclear reactor!
Read it wrong in HWINFO since that displays half speeds. Real speed was about 1400. Still slow as all hell.
Got a 2600x for about £125, MSI B450 tomahawk max at £100 and 32gb of 3200 ram for maybe £130. You can see it in my profile
She really did well for her time. Upgraded to a 2600x though, and it's a world of difference
I'll be sure to add some soon
