I would have to look up the specifics for your card but in general those temps are pretty acceptable. Depending on your case and fan configuration it may be good, it may be bad. More specs would help.

Have you left the fans at stock settings to see what the temps are like?

case fans? yes almost the same temps, maybe 1-2º less but the question is : my card is faulty? or wf3 have this vrm temps normally?

EDIT: Just read that your card is voltage locked... damn.. can check temps for you later if you want.



If I were you I'd try flashing the F43 BIOS to your card (unless it's voltage locked)

In my experience the F43 BIOS generally runs cooler (including VRMs) than any of the GHZ BIOSes

Unsure if your VRM temps are normal.. can check mine in a couple of hours if you want. (can test GHz and non GHz versions for you).

Have a look at the link here (done in windows through a GUI):

Or through command line:

Most people will recommend you do it through a bootable USB drive with atiflash on it, my experience has been that only using atiwinflash worked for me - if you are going to do it try flashing via command line first.
