  1. I bought this exact card at best buy and I’m thrilled to learn more specifics of its heatsink and features that I didn’t bother to look at before. Great job reviewing; HOWEVER this review was published just yesterday yet is using 16.8 crimson drivers??? Why I bought mine a month ago and had 16.11 available. I was hoping you’d have 16.12.1(ReLive) drivers.
