80C is for VRMs and Core for max. They can allow higher. But that's just me. I have never hit 80C for quite a while now.

If 80c is my limit then I don't have much room left since i'm hitting 77c on vrm 1.

Ok, now I got a little confuse

what if I have stock clocks, no OC, do i need to increase power limit?
does it help at anything at all?
or may or may not help, but definitely does not hurt?

would this work in getting analog vga output off a 390?

I some cases, the Default Power Limit can be maxed out by the card under LOAD at stock. So yes, it helps.

Those limiters allow the card to throttle when exceeding the threshold to keep the card within the TDP Envelope and keep Thermals at bay.

Remember the reference models. They have to do that to keep the card cool. But with custom cooling solutions, they are hitting the limiters earlier than exceeding TEMPS. And funny how so,me custom cards retain the reference card's limit figures. tongue.gif

I would say in theory, you should fine for anything under 90C on Core and under 100C on VRM. What I mean is that it wouldn't really affect the lifespan of the card in any way that matters.

But in reality, that high VRM temps will make your card require a lot more voltage to stablize a specific overclock than say running it at 70C or less would.

Stock card? Just ignore the temps. Going for max overclocks? Get them as low as possible, core temp is not really important, VRM1 is.
I start seeing artifacts at +125mV and 1200/1600 clocks after my VRM1 gets above ~70C. I have managed to get it to top out at ~71C but still need to improve it.. somehow...

yes, i use one of these myself on my 390x for one of my side monitors (the other is done via a hdmi->vga connector which also works on the 390x) so i can confirm this. I've also got an active dp->dvi working on the 390x as well.

and you know what? regardless of through dp or dvi, windows still decides to change my ruddy screen layout on turning off my main monitor on the 390x *flips table* i was hoping the active dp->dvi would solve that but it didn't (that app for saving desktop icons is a lifesaver!! <3 )

Do you have the name of that icon saver?
I looked into it once before and found one but wasnt compatible with win10

Well, so much for it not solving your problem. You're welcome. tongue.gif

Seriously though, it's awesome. I have it restore the same layout upon booting, so even if my icon layout changes when playing in 1440p (VSR) it will get automatically restored next time I turn the computer on. Nice.

The app is called DesktopOK and you can find it here. It's working with Windows 10, I'm using it right now.

hehe, sorry sorry, i get lost of who said what in this thread XD ty! <3
It hasn't solved the issue but it has alleviated the symptoms :-) turning off the monitor or a black screen will still cause issues with explorer from time to time and plays havoc with my icons but the app lets me put things back to where they were easily :-)

also, i'm being stupid here but the VSR that you can turn on in crimson, that takes whatever display you mount it on (e.g. 1080p monitor) and treats it ingame and onscreen as a 1440p+ resolution that it automatically downscales to 1080p which would make things nicer looking? how much of a hit does it have on performance? do you nee to do anything special in games to get it to work?
