HD 5870 temperature issue

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi to everyone , as the title indicates i have had some issues since i purchased my HD 5870 which is supposed to be low on temperature , specifically my model is an Asus EAH5870 which is supposed to be even cooler in terms of temperature.

But i get around 65 otr 68 degrees on idle , even with fans at 50% (already loud) i only get to around 55 or 53 degrees on idle.

I also noticed when i launch my computer it makes a lot of noise , sometimes it gets that loud in games too...it just randomly starts nerd raging at something <.<

I had some really bad experience with Asus smart doctor and gamer osd ,i just kept having blue screens when i tried using the game mode , asked myself if it was just that the 3d game mode was too demanding for my old E5300 processor , so i tried the overdrive auto tune , but after that my card wouldn't respond and i had to take an older one to get my computer to start normally without getting this silly effects which looks like your Call of duty radar when jammed...

For those of you who are wondering , my rooms isn't hot at all....it keeps raining here >.<

So should i send it back ? or it it just my CPU which f***s everything up D:

You should try getting a vacuum or an air duster can and blow of the dust from the heatsinks. Something tells me you haven't done that in a while. Or you could open it up and replace the thermal paste on GPU, that will most likely drop your temps by a good amount. But this wont do any help if your case has bad airflow or dusty fans. Fill out your rig in the User Cp to so we can help you more. And are you seriously using a E5300 with your 5870? That is some serious bottleneck you have there.

That is really poor. Mine idles at 37C on idle with auto fan speed and 62C on load. How is the airflow of your case?

What case is it? Do you have any fans?

I have a Gigabyte 5870 Eyefinity 6 edition and before I recently changed coolers to the Thermalright Spitfire, I still had pretty good temps (~40*C idle and 70*C load) so I recommend that you remount using different TIM and get the dust out of your heatsink, should drop temps significantly.

How many case fans do you have?
post #10 of 16
The airflow in the elite 333 is just horrid. 120mm front and 120mm rear. You can try to mod mount on the side vents a 80mm or 120mm fan.
Not sure which ones will fit. Been a long time since I modded that case.
Just remove that duct on the side panel first though.
