RX 580 needs way cooler VRM like 65C loaded out and it would be a great card... Only issue with Polaris.. hard to keep VRM cool and well below 80C even 65C would be insanity.

VRM cooling. Never seen mine below 67c. Both my 390(x) machines could use a tonic to lower the blood pressure. (Lol.)

@componentgirl90
Right on. From 1000Mhz to 1173Mhz core on the 390x is from 64 billion pixel's & 176 billion texel's every second.

To 75 billion 72 million pixel's & 206 billion 448 million texel's every second.

That's 11 billion pixels more per second & 30.448 billion more texel's every second... Not much probably?

@stephenn82
Try 1563mhz ram... sometimes 1758mhz doesn't work, though it does on reference with errors. If the 1563mhz doesn't work then the card isn't happy at 1425mv... Gonna need less max core voltage... LMK on 1563mhz ram on 1250mhz core.

If someone were to open my card to put thermal paste on it or whatever it needs to stop it overheating, what would they do to fix it?

Talk about vrm and heat, I'll tell ya what gets my goat is when I get my clocks cinched down perfect for each game I play, I get a game update that creates an unplayable episode. Like last month, Origin updated their features which created a ton of heat. I crashed like a hobby in Battlefield 3 and 4, even on default settings. The heat was going for a joy ride. 85c+. I finally had some luck turning off all the auto setting features in Origin but when I started the games the next day, I couldn't get in Origin to play games at all. Apparently their servers didn't like my tampering with their default auto settings.
Everything in Steam works fine. I run Call of Duty AW & Ghost multiplayer like the hero of the world. Clocks are high, temps are down. Mother couldn't love a son better. My computer base games are great, Everything doesn't get pass the 70c's. What better temps can I ask for in fast, resource eating, multiplayer games? It's like every mother wanting me to kiss their babies and all the young ladies throwing their panties in my face. Steam is excellent!.. . and Origin servers make my head explode.
Uninstalled and reinstalled games using Revo uninstaller and DDU to do a clean install of the video driver, used 'Scan Now' for Windows and Ccleaner to get all the registry junk cleared and topped that with a defrag. Even turned off my anti-virus just in case. Nope. Origin just says I'm gonna fry your head today. Even checked the task manger for any unwanted programs running, ran my anti-virus and spyware/malware programs for anything running that could possibly interfere with Origin. Checked system management>error logs. Nope. Everything's pee-chee. Just Origin.
Origin's gotta do something about that. I think they get ahead of themselves and don't thoroughly go through their new settings for faults. Humongous waste of time.

It couldn't hurt. I did it. I found thermal paste smeared throughout the die block. Cleaned it up, used a smaller amount and it was 5c to 10c cooler.

@Rexer Haha temps? Send bios attach here .zip of .rom

@componentgirl90 I would use Arctic Silver Ceramique 2 on the Core use finger to spread evenly over whole chip nice and smooth... Then I would actually buy adhesive copper heatsinks and a hot glue device... Push it on the 3 Memory VRM and add a smidge of hot glue to 2 or 4 sides so it can't fall out... That would fix it... Those VRM don't need much to stay well below 70C at all times... I once used a 0.25mm thick copper piece I cut in a T-Shape to cool them... that's all and VRM was like 60C load.

Hey.. Now that you mention copper heatsinks, I actually used a copper plate in a 7950 a few years ago. I put it between the gpu chip and the big heatsink. I remember it being a bear to install because the thermo mud kept slurring and shifting it all over the place but once I got it centered and together, my temps went down. I got the idea from some German base waterblock company that said the gpu was sitting too low in the die block in some of the earlier 7950s and that using a copper plate help 'lift' and transfer heat away to the heatsink. If I recall, It dropped the temps 8c. There's something about copper that gives it better heat transfer properties. I've used aluminum heatsinks and plates for a number of electronic applications but found copper is just better at this.

Only reference values and cool dudes! yeah for sure. Though now a days VRM contacts some sort of super low conductive elemental metal and uses a thermal coating like electro-anodized paint that conducts better than the material itself... So don't sand off the paint! haha If you do blast off the paint... have it plated in copper! Now that's awesome.

Element Conductivity : watts per meter kelvin

Aluminium 225
Copper, pure 400
Diamond 1,000
Silver 425
Gold 500

Thank You! I stand fortified! I'm gonna get my 'T' shirt and shorts copper plated! Then I'll conduct some real nasty weather.
