Crossfire AMD Radeon 6970, heat issues. - Page 3

post #21 of 25
the thermal pads wont make a diffrence have you tried putting a fan near the cards to blow more air directly into the gap.. usually a 120mm fan at the end of cards greatly reduces temps

That is interesting MSI calls my cards AMD Radeon HD 6900 series, and it lists the full name for your card, any reason for that?

And how do you get the VRM and memory temps to show up? They aren't listed for me on MSI.

Dunno whats going on here but I decided to play Witcher 2, and noticed I was getting about 30% less than normal FPS, I checked my GPU usage in MSI and it was also way down compared to normal. Normal is in the 80%+ usage range, but they were about 55-60% usage. So I kick Kombuster and it immediately crashes and then goes to a blue screen. Stock settings, no overclock at all. My GPUs suddenly went unstable for no apparent reason.

If anyone has tried Witcher 2 with settings max WITH Uber Sampling, it puts a bigger strain on GPUs than I've seen on any game to date, you may as well be running Kombuster.

See if it's available by RT clicking on AB graph and select properties. Tic each box that you want monitored. Not all cards are supported so ymmv.
