Factory speeds are great, and boots up over 1930MHz and at least +550 MHz on the RAM with MSI Afterburner.
Practically impossible to keep from thermal throttling. I have a very well-cooled mid-tower case, including a variety of 140mm and 200mm fans, and forced 100% duty cycle on the GPU fans. Even at 100% duty cycle on all system fans I can't keep this card from hitting 87C (the throttle point with Afterburner running) and bouncing around between 1550 - 1800 MHz after about 5 mins of load, even with my side panel off.
I really can't recommend this card unless you get it on a wicked sale. It's not awful but performance is basically guaranteed to be thermal-limited regardless of your case cooling unless you're on an open test bench. As said, even with my side panel off this card thermal throttles after about 5 mins.

Performs really well. I get about 1,900Mhz consistently at full load which is higher than the advertised clock speed. Solid FPS performance in games (Battlefield V performs with 100 fps average at 1080p)
A rattling, coil whine when revving up or down between idle and load. Not the quietest GPU. Thermals hit 83° C easily when gaming. Not terrible (RTX series cards apparently run hotter in general) but not great either.
Great performance, not the greatest cooling.

-cheaper of 2060 models and closest to msrp (at time of writing) -has a 0rpm mode at low temps so that card stays silent when not doing gpu intensive tasks -identical performance to a more expensive variant at stock clock speeds.
-this card has a poor cooling solution on it and despite being a 60 series card this runs much hotter than other models -anything less than the best of airflow in a case will have this card easily hitting 80c -however with good airflow it stays below 75c.
I would make sure your pc case has really good airflow or else at look at other models with better cooling solutions.
