Sapphire R9 290X gets hot

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I was playing World of Warcraft and suddenly i get a red screen and my pc rebooted. I noticed that my graphics card was 90'C on the NZXT app on my phone. Now im running these cards in CrossFire and i had them in the standard cooling mode (the mode which is controlling the fans by itself on Catalyst Control Center). I thought i would give this a try instead of what i uselly do, setting the fans on 90% before starting a game. And than they get really LOUD. But now i wonder is there another program which i can use to control the fans? Where you can set with sliders that if the card is 40'C thats the fans are going to run at 60% or something. I dont think that the airflow in my case is the best, but i also dont think it is bad (see picture below) I know to get it silent i probably need to go watercooled, but i try to avoid that for now.






I havent overclocked anything.

Specs:
Case: NZXT Phantom 820
Processor: AMD FX-9590 4.7Ghz cooled by an NZXT Kraken x61
Motherboard: Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z
Memory: 8GB G.Skill 2400Mhz
Soundcard: Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus
Graphics Card: Sapphire R9 290X 4Gb in CrossFire
1200WATT Sirtec RockSolid PSU
Monitor: LG 29" UltraWide on 2560x1080 (yes i know this is also asking alot of my GPU's in games like GTA V)

Hope you guys/girls can help me out.

Gonna try that. But does it work with Sapphire cards really good, are there some bugs in it or is it working for 100%.

MSI Afterburner works with my r9 290 vapor-x just fine. You can access the fan profile configuration in settings->fan tab. Also, 90C is too hot for this card. Can you compare the temps of the both cards? It might give an insight if there is a problem with the card's cooler.

Edit: Sapphire Trixx also has this option

Ye i need to ALT+TAB and then go to CCC and there i can switch between the 2 cards. There is nothing wrong with the cards. I know for sure that it is CCC. The auto fan control is f*cking up since the first day i have the first one. On 70'C the fans slightly go op to 30%. I want them on 100% if it reaches those high temps.

You can make a custome fan curve with MSI AB. Works fine with my 290X GPU smile.gif

No. Just install the program and set the settings you prefer.

check VRM 1 temperature. I have the same card and my VRM 1 gets ridiculously hot. Like 115° Celsius in Furmark (yes I know furmark is bad) and like 85-90°C in gaming.

maybe its the VRM that is giving you the problems
