7950 high temps!!! HELP

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
So I have been playing with my 7950 now for a few days. It seemed to be running perfect. Battlefield 3/metro 2033/3dmark never pushed it above 75c. So I thought all was well. I had to run to the bank today and decided to leave furmark running to really test it out. When I got back home I was shocked to see my gpu temp around 98c-101c. HOT

Now I know furmark will stress the gpu past what any game would but. Am I wrong in thinking 100c is still a little much? As I said in normal games I have never seen then card go above 75c, and thats after playing for hours. ONLY furmark has pushed my temps to these 100c areas. So is this normal. Or should I rma for sure?

Are you overclocked? Also what's your current voltage?

Not sure. Im not using any 3rd party programs. I am using the stock 850/1250 with boost at 925/1250 (all stock) and im running with the catalyst "power" option set to 20%. If I set the power any lower then 20% the card cant hold its boost or even stock clock and downclocks to 500 core. Seems fishy to me. You would think the card should be able to handle its stock clocks without a power boost

Which 7950 do you have?

You should fill in your rig info so we can help you more easily.

What case do you have?

What model card is it?

As asked above, what clocks is it running at?

Are you using any programs to control the fan?

Running furmark is like leaving your card in the desert sun with the case open. It's unnecessary, yes it does stress test it, and yes it's dumb. Use a different way of benching that.

IT'S NORMAL. Furmark is like dropping a 100lb weight on someone chest while they're sleeping. It's totally unnecessary. Please don't run OCCT either.
You need to understand what Furmark is and what it isn't. Compare it to other utilities.

Personally I've been using EVGA OC Scanner but I don't know how intense that is compared to other stability testers. OP you've never mentioned your ambients either.

I have a coolermaster 690 with 4 case fans. This isnt a new rig, just a new gpu. Temps have always been low (for example after 4hours of prime 95 my cpu doesnt even past 75c) so my case seems nice and cool. I have a antec 620wat psu with 48amps on the 12v rail. I dont think it would be a psu issue as my setup before this was crossfired 6850's which together use more power then a single 7950 so that should be good. The card itself games great. As I said never goes above 75c in any game even after hours of playing, its just furmark. I am using no programs to control the fan but considering when it topped out in fuirmark @ 100c it was running at 100% fan there isnt much I coulda done there, 100% is 100%. also is it normal for the card to not hold its boost clock without a power % increase in catalyst? at 10% the card will hold its 850core. at 20% it will hold its 925 boost core clock. If I leave the power % slider at 0% the card instant downclocks to 500mhz core the second I enter any game

ambients are 48c for gpu. 38c for cpu. and 32c on my hdd's. Those are all the temps I can see in hwmonitor

Nah, ambient temperature is the one in the room, not something specific to a component. They want to know if you live in a tropical climate or similar.

Those are not ambient temperatures, those are idle temperatures.

Ambient is the room temperature. Pretty sure it's not 48C (118F) in your house right now unless you're just wearing your boxers in your chair with a bag of ice on your head with an AC unit in your room. rolleyes.gif
