We added some washers and thermal paste to the RX 5700 XT cooler to fix some of its previously dismal performance.
Ad: Buy Corsair's Ironclaw Mouse (Amazon - https://geni.us/CJOAg)

This fix uses some Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut, although we'd recommend some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut on Amazon (https://geni.us/Jrm5Sf).

We also used 4 washers, found easily. The idea is to fix the mounting pressure issue on the RX 5700 XT cooler, a similar issue exhibited by the Radeon VII cooler. This addresses some of the thermal and temperature/noise concerns by bringing down overall GPU temperature, thus allowing lower noise levels at the same performance.

AMD's RX 5700 XT GPU should be on Amazon here: https://geni.us/WS48
Better yet, consider buying a product that we reviewed overwhelmingly positively -- the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is on Amazon: https://geni.us/vtPUE
