x1950xt Temps (Accelero X2 Disappointment)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok so I went through a lot of trouble installing the x2 on my x1950xt. The instructions were terrible! I put AS5 on the RAMs and on the GPU after removing the originial pad. I put it on the card, fastened all the screws, and then I double checked if the HSF touches the gpu and RAMs properly... guess what it's not! So I take off everything and I figure that the thermal pads they supplied must be for the RAMs(never mentioned in instructions). I didn't clean off the AS5, just put the pads on top of it(Dunno if I did the right thing). Then all is fine I connect it and I get these temps (All at stock clocks):

Idle 50% fan - 45C
Idle 100% fan - 45C
LOAD 100% fan - 74C (!!!)

Question: Are these temps OK? They seem a little high, especially at load, considering that these are stock clocks. I got this hsf so I could OC the card, but seeing as the temps are high already, they will go through the roof when OCed.......

Video cards have been known to hover around 100ºC loaded. Those temperatures are pretty good for that beastly card.

Lol everything I read on here said the x2 was the best cooler... I'm disappointed though.. I was getting pretty much very similar temps with stock cooling. I might try doing what you suggested if that's the only thing to do.

Your not suppose to have AS5 AND a thermal pad on there its on or the other. You are insulating your ram right now. Remove it and clean it off, actually you will probably have to buy new thermal pads.

ATI Cards are very very hot, so a 74 C load is fine. You should have checked temps before, though, to see what the increase was like.

That's what I was thinking, and at first I only had AS5 on there but there was a gap between RAMs and the hsf. The thermal pads are thicker. I know that If i clean it off I will need new pads because the AS5 is already stuck to them, and I dont want to wait until they get shipped here. Would it work if I put on a thicker layer of AS5 ?

No, more AS5 isn't going to help if the base isn't making contact with the GPU.

What you need to do is see if you can properly install the cooler, if not you either need to return it for a replacement, or get a new cooler, preferably a VF900, a hsf I would've suggested you to buy.

No that will insulate it even more. Try going down to a Circuit City or a computer shop in your area and see if they have any thermal pads. I might go as far as to ask Geek Squad as I am sure they have them for CPU installs.

Lightsoure do you guys have any at Firedog?
