HIS TIM Replacement - Page 3

post #21 of 29
that does sound weird. it's usually the top card that tends to run hotter. And the fact that the temps shot up even more leads me to think there's something wrong with the card itself, or its mating between the heatsink and gpu.

I'd probably rma it if i were you.

I switched mine around also to see if there was a difference. After running heaven again, the top card moved between 75*c - 76*c and the bottom moved between 70*c - 71*c. Everything seems to be ok on my setup.

If you're getting 85*c, then I'd probably be thinking about an RMA unless you want to try changing the TIM yourself on that card.

Edit: I also can't seem to change the voltage in iTurbo software. For some reason it stays on the boost voltage of 1.25v with full load.

What are your idle temps? I get 55 on top card (my defective one) and 27 on the bottom one

Idle temps right now are 38*c / 37*c (Top / Bottom).

Are you using the side fan on the Haf X? I have the side fan blowing on my cards at the moment.

I ran heaven again for an hour and my temps are holding at 77*c (Top) / 67*c (Bottom) at 1100mhz with voltage is set at 1.168v. I've been logging the VRM temps with GPU-Z and they seem to stay at 25*c - 26*c (stock at 1250mhz).

One thing I did notice though is that one of my fans is starting to rattle a bit during certain times. I think this is a known issue with HIS IceQ series as I've seen it described in consumer and professional reviews. Hoping I don't need to RMA, I really enjoy the performance I'm getting from these cards.

The VRM temp sensor on my Iceq 7950 does not work and reads 25 C. At full load there is no way your VRMs are 25 C. Your sensor does not work. I think they are disabled on this card or due to card bios.

I was thinking the same thing. 25*c doesn't seem right...

I also noticed that these cards sag pretty bad in the pci express slot. I think this might be causing the fan to go off balance sometimes and make strange noises.

I read some posts on the 7900 owners thread. It seems the vrm sensors don't work on the IceQ X2 either. I wonder why HIS would do this and advertise overclocking for the cards... confused.gif

The VRM temps are fine. I have compared my HIS iceq temps at 100% load for days by touch to my Sapphire 7950 boost VRM temps also at 100% load for days and they are ~the same temp +-5 C. My sapphire card reads 65-67C on its VRMs. Ill assume the HIS are running 10C hotter(they really arent) just for safety. 75-78 C is absolutely fine for High end GPU VRMs.

HIS Iceq 7950 1100 1.2 V

Sapphire HD7950 Dual X with Boost 1200 1.25V

I wouldn't worry about it. I did for awhile but then I did my comparison and Im not worried at all. I run my cards 100% 24/7 for BOINC. No issues. biggrin.gif
