XFX Double D is hotter than Core Edition

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is not only with CFX enabled because i've tested them individually. At same clocks and voltage my Core edition never goes above 65c. The DD edition hits 75-80c after an hour of DiRT & Sleep dog....even with fan set to 100% Has anyone replaced the TIM on their DD coolers and gotten better results? I was thinking of picking up some 1mm Fujipoly extreme thermal pads off of FrozenCPU for the ram moduals. Which TIM would you recommend using on the GPU?

I would actually like to know as well. My DD is nearly 20 deg hotter than my other card. Not sure what all that extra money got me.

Nothing. Never buy XFX. I have heard this being an issue with the DD's.

I remember someone who had this problem decided to replace the TIM on his DD card. He found out there was no heat pads for the ram chips and the TIM was very poorly applied to the GPU. So from what you are syaing I believe this may be the case with yours as well.

This is why I avoid XFX at all costs and never buy any of their products even if its significantly cheaper than oher vendors. If your able to, I would return it for refund if at all possible.

I can just undervolt the Pitcairn Pro to balance out the temperatures. I just like synchronizing my cards in Trixx so I don't have to manually set the voltages everytime I start my PC.

You think putting a plastic washer between the board and spring screw would create more contact?

I have similar issues on my DD. Did you get the one that was $289 after MIB on Newegg? Because there are a few. I removed the cooler on mine, and the base of the cooler is like bare, machined cooper. Not flat at all. The TIM was just caked on there, like a LOT. I reapplied TIM and reset the cooler, and it's still running really hot. 

 

I'm going to end up WC cooling this thing just to control the heat.

 

Edit: Oops, you have the 7850, but I think they both use the same cooler.
