from completed build Ryzen 202
High idle temperatures (49C), but does not spike that much under load (75C - which is okay in my small ITX case). Had to add one fan to keep it running at stock without getting temperatures near to thermal throttle. Excellent card for anything else.
Note: This review is from a small ITX case, temperatures reported here do not apply to bigger mATX/ATX cases.

Managed to snag this guy for retail. Was gonna flip, and may still do so if I can score a replacement card for the right price.

Definitely like the graphics/compute switch. I haven't had a chance to fully use the compute setting. I'm sure it will be good as the graphics setting. Stays cool under full load. Love the applications for Radeon.

from completed build AMD Bang for Buck for under $800
Great bang for the buck GPU. Only downside is the lack of OC on MSI Afterburner.

from completed build Portable with Lots of Storage
Just short enough to fit into the SG13 from the top instead of having to slide it in from the front as recommended in the manual. Made building a lot easier.

It's not the fastest mid-ranged graphics card, but whether it's gaming or compute you need, it's not half bad at either.

Much better than the R7 360 I had before! Runs quiet and cool with very good gaming performance!

This is a great card. The only options I was willing to consider when I was in the market was either this or the Nitro+ in my budget and judging by a review on KitGuruTech where they pitted an RX 580 Pulse 8GB against it's elder brother - the RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB, performance-wise there was little difference. At the time I didn't feel like the price difference was in line with the performance difference so I judged the Pulse to be the most bang for my buck.
By itself, it's a beast of a card considering I upgraded from a GT 1030. Runs cool and quiet. 75 degrees under load and Radeon Chill ensures it's fans don't spin at all until it's 60 degrees hot. Runs Witcher 3 at high-ultra, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus at ultra, Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare at ultra and GTA V at ultra out of the box. I may OC it at some point since it has a higher ceiling for the same than the Nitro+ but for now, it's enough for my needs. It's the king of the mid-tier RX 580s and since the top-tier cards, with the exception of the Nitro+ and Powercolor Golden Sample (which I don't really trust as a brand just yet), are not being produced anymore, this is a logical choice for someone on a budget. Happy with my decision and purchase so far.
