Overclockers Club takes a look at XFX's new RX 580, inside and out as they completely removed the cooler to let you see all the parts.  The card does come overclocked right out of the box, however OCC pushed the card further, hitting 1440MHz on the GPU and 2116MHz for the memory.  That result fell short of the Powercolor Golden Sample card they tested but is still not bad, as XFX is not charging much of a premium over the reference model.  Pop by to see the full results.

"XFX's RX 580 8GB GTS Black Edition card is a factory overclocked card that uses a TrueClock OC of 1405MHz on the core right out of the gate with an OC+ core clock of 1425MHz possible. A total of 8GB of high speed GDDR5 memory is used to handle the textures to make 2560 x 1440 the new resolution target."

With the exception of the red dot stickers on the fans (assuming they're stickers) that's actually a nice looking card design. And for something that has some serious overclocking headroom without the premium some manufacturers charge *cough EVGA *cough* it's a very tempting card.

Not a fan of stickers or fans...
Because I have yet to see one correctly centered.

And at low RPM, it makes them look wobbly and cheap.

They got a REALLY bad sample. I have the exact same card and was able to pull off 1500MHZ core/ 2600MHz Mem (Yes you are seeing right on the memory clocks) all test & benchmarks passed with 0 errors checked with HWinfo64 and DBG file.
