I've gotten 1075 core, 1450 memory with +5% on voltage and 20% power limit. I own the Gigabyte Windforce version. I would like to go higher if, or when I am able to water cool the card because it is loud!

I think all 380/380x are loud. I'm looking into liquid cooling my Gigabyte Windforce 380, because it is extremely loud under load. I haven't found any full water blocks for the card; only for popular Nvidia cards, Fury, and R9 200 series. If someone have info on where I can purchase a full GPU block, please post the info.

Not sure if im lucky with my card or ut is cos my native screen ress is 1680×1050 but my 380x g1 gaming is not loud at all...with stock fan curve,only added 20% fans at 30°C point to keep it colder at idle.

Thats after about 3h of Farcry4 at ultra,same temps and fan speeds are on Heaven(ultra,extreme tess,8xaa) if i turn on virtual ressolution and run it at 1080p max that it got was 63°C at 63% fans. And thats with OC from 980Mhz to 1100Mhz on core and from 1425Mhz to 1550Mhz on ram...
If your fans run faster than that try reinstaling drivers or OC software you use.
After 2 weeks of playing with AB,OC Guru and stuff,i came to conclusion that MSI AB is best for fan control, monitoring and testing stability of OC. After i found whats max stable OC i set up all my OC in AMD overdrive in Crimison drivers,just for games where i want and need OC since i play some old games where i realy dont need OC there is no point in stressing gpu with it.

Thank you so much for helping me tame this noise beast. thumb.gif Seems like all I needed was a custom fan curve to shut this card up. I did notice that at idle, my GPU temp is 50C. Is that normal for these cards, or should I customize the curve more to lower that?

Yeah,thats normal for it cos in idle it runs without fans. I set up mine like this 30°C/20%, 40°C/40%, 50°/50%, 60°/60%, 70°/80% and 80°C/100% with that curve mine works at arround 35°C at idle with about 20-30% fans and its nice and quiet, and under full load it never reached 65°C and its still not too loud...but note that airflow in your case and temp in your room will affect temps too...i think my case has decent airflow and room temp in my room is around 20-25°C.

Here's my 380x at stock clocks.


Seems like I lucked out and got a decent Overclocker.

Power Limit: 14%
Core Clock: 1115

I have a Sapphire R9 380 NITRO, the pre-backplate version. I have it running in a Lian-Li PC-Q11 case and in some games, the temps are reaching 80C pretty easily. Then again, I have a Pentium G3258 @ 4.4Ghz that is being cooled by a Thermalright AXP-200 on ASRock Z97E-ITX where there is like 3mm of space before it touches the video card. The right side panel gets fairly warm where GPU is. Is this normal? I know that I crammed the parts into the case with millimeters to spare because I needed a small footprint.

Would replacing paste on the GPU help remedate this temp? To think that it hits this temp in the winter, scares the idea to have it game in the summer.

I don't know if the heat trapped in the case is causing this, but it gets pretty bad at some points.

In case anyone will ask, I have the front case fan pulling in air, cpu fan is pulling air from the heatsink, then PSU is facing the heatsink and pulling in the air from the cpu, kinda of a wind tunnel effect. Only went this way as some folks here tested that pulling air was better than pushing for the heatsink.

Sorry if I went too far off topic. Thanks.

EDIT:I do realize that because the GPU Extends all the way to the front with about 2mm spare, I pretty much have 2 different heat areas.

16.1 Crimson, Fan AUTO. Can it be that auto fan doesn't work too well when scaling with temps?

Hello.

Those high temperatures are caused by "Intelligent Fan Control II", tech support say that it is "a mode for quiet using purpose and target the GPU temperature as 76 degree C.
So that the GPU might up to 8X degree C when running in 3D mode. That is a normal behavior and the GPU can up to 100 degree C."

I see at sapphire web site:http://www.sapphiretech.com/catapage_pd.asp?cataid=67&lang=eng that the 380 nitro with 985 mhz and 4gb or 1010 or 1000 and 2gb,have IFC, and that the one with 1010 and 4gb don't have it.

But Sapphire tech support has send my a VBIOS that removes the Intelligent Fan Control II, with a fan mode that is the "legacy setting as other Radeon product lines". With it I have temperatures between 64º to 71º.
And I see at VBIOS with thit bios editor: https://github.com/Hedzin/TongaBiosReader that fan control type is 0 in that bios, but in mine was 1.

Like you can see at thit image, left is tech support BIOS with 00, right is mine with 01: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So you have these options:

- Do a custom fan profile with AfterBurner or Trixx.

- Go to overdrive driver panel section and change the value "target GPU temperature" to less than 80º, it or lees than 72º may give you thermal throttling.

- Give gpu back to the seller.

- Ask sapphire for that VBIOS to flash.

- Change that value at VBIOS and flash (they say that you lose the guarantee if you have any problem, because it isn't an oficial bios).

- Change that value at windows registry in PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable, that is located at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Cl ass\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000].

You have to change this 01 of the image to 00: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Then you have to restart windows or restart drivers with RadeonMod, to apply changes.

If you don't have PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable you can create it creating a new AfterBurner shortcut and adding /xcl, like is explained here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1387430/amd-how-to-change-the-power-control-limit-from-20-to-50

Hi all, I will be joining the club shortly with a Sapphire 380X Nitro.

I had two R9 290 Vapor-X but decided to sell them while I can still get ~$250 for them on Amazon.

I run 5760x1080p Eyefinity but I don't really play the latest games anyway and the only genres I'm interested in are RPGs. The last game I finished on this setup was Dragon Age Inquisition and that was over a year ago. I hated The Witcher 3. So, games I like are few and far between. I still play stuff like Skyrim and Just Cause 2 and Sleeping Dogs occasionally and those run at 60fps in Eyefinity on Ultra with the R9 270X I'm using right now. So since I still haven't finished a lot of older games, I probably don't need my two 290s anymore.

When my second 290 sells I'll have around $1k and I'm saving it for big die Polaris x2. I will have two Polaris cards in this system when they come out.

In the meantime I got a 380X Nitro and it only cost $150 of my savings because my wife paid the rest. (She's really cool with my PC hobby and has bought me stuff on credit cards etc. thumb.gif )

I used to be really into benching for HWBOT so I will bench my card and post the results on HWBOT and here.

P.S. Also what's up SlyFox. I am also from Madison WI. I live on the east side.

Nice choice. The Sapphire Nitro 380x is a great card, should be a bit quieter than your 290's as well. Post some benches when you get it.
