Had to spread it across the whole Silicon Diode from edge to edge to create full contact and ideal lowest thermals. If you have a GPU app running in the background, could also cause it. Especially if you have had the same windows installation longer than a year.


I have had the same windows installation since jan 2015...but it happens sometimes as soon as I press the power button. Today It hasn't happened at all yet.

I was going to switch the PSU for a 500W one but I won't now because I am concerned that the power draw will be too much and I need to test it under load.

This is really the job of the RMA people but you (Chris) have probably done more for my card than they have done for 10 RMAs drunken.gif

@componentgirl90 This will atleast give solid gaming performance on cool temperatures. I haven't tested this method so lmk on temperatures. Only 44% fan max and 68C Max Temperature. Idk what would happen... Need to test plus post HWInfo. thumb.giftongue.gifwink.gif

If you want to... I'm willing to fix your card for you so you can forget about RMA...? Ship it to me... PM... Include a return USPS label as well so I can ship it back. I just need 24 hours and it'll be on the way back to you...

If I flash that bios, I take it I just have to skip the whole installation of drivers stuff. Just open ATIFlash, load bios and boom?

What country do you live in? If it isn't fixed by September (end of warranty period) than I could send it then.

My brother did some research and said that accelerating fans like this can be caused by loose PSU cables. That is why I suspect a PSU related issue.

USA here. You? Yes, make sure MSI and all other apps like Hwinfo are closed .. open.. flash .. done

Dont click anything obviously while its flashing.

It wouldn't be PSU related. The fan ramps up when something is too hot automatically to full speed when "Max Temp" is reached. Which yours by stock is 98 degrees celsius.

I like 7zip more. It does all the things. But follow these instructions to zip with any program
These will run fine on mine? They seem super aggressive. thumb.gif but if the cooling results are ok for you and we can move forward, I'll be your huckleberry

What about my uploaded screen for my attempt to bios mod?

The card is not at 98 though, its at like 40 or 50 when its happening.

I am in the UK btw. RIP that idea. lol

You could still ship it to me so I can fix the card for good after warranty is up. No more issues. I would go through every single thing on the card. Using all my high end thermal material and performance enhancing methods to ensure continuous stability.

As far as the "Max Temp" it is also the temperature of non-monitorable chips that can over heat if not cooled directly... here lets take a look at the cooler and PCB.

Ok I see now. I will let you know how it goes

The best way to fix that without removing the heatsink is buy 10mm thick thermal material and mush it in there so the VRM contact the heatsink.

Along with my BIOS I sent should fix it... try this BIOS actually knowing that is the issue we can knock VRM down 40 degrees celsius.

Fan speed is like this

30C @ 40%
50C @ 75%
60C @ 75%
75C Max @ 88% (Should throttle at 75C) May be loud in game but memory VRM won't overheat and this is DeLimited Bios. No Power Limit.

i wouldn't. The thicker the material the less and less it will work, a 110mm thermal pad would more then likely cause it to run hotter then anything.

It's actually been proven and its why the intel tim isn't the issue but the gap is, the thicker the thermal pad/thermal interface material you use the less it works. Ive tested this over the past couple of years.
