Asus 290x Matrix Platinum - Voltage Locked, Limited Sensors, Weird Fans

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been using this card for a limited amount of time now and the more it seems I dig into the details of the card the stranger it seems.

Let me start by giving you the rest of my build:
2500k 4.5GHZ 1.34V
Asus p8p68
ax1200i
h100i
h440
8gb ddr3 1333
SDD + HDD
Win 10 64bit

Newest Catalyst Drivers, newest MSI afterburner

I have noticed three abnormalities in the card up to this point and I am not sure if they are related or not:

1) No matter if its Afterburner, Trixx, Asus GPU utility, and no matter what boxes I check in the settings (IE: unlock voltage control, monitor voltage...) I have no voltage control on the card. It remains nonadjustable.

2) In GPU-z under the sensor column I am missing come notable bits of data. Mainly VRM temps and core voltage. Their may be others but I haven't missed them so I haven't noticed.

3) With the default fan curve, the fans will only speed up to 61% at max. The card will then hit 94c and begin to throttle down to around 950mhz to stay cooler. Shouldn't the fans speed up rather then the card throttling itself?

-If I manually adjust the fan curve to run at 100%, the card will still reach 94c after about 4mins of gaming. May need new thermal paste on die, also changing case fans for better airflow. However, don't want to open GPU until other issues are resolved.

If you have any insight, please help. I love this card but these problems are driving me crazy. Haven't had much luck googling and poking around forums.

For the voltage problems I would uninstall Afterburner completely and reinstall as for the heat problems, that could be just bad thermal paste contact or your voltage is really been set and is not reading it correctly. so I would try reinstalling afterburner first. then see if it is fixed
