Should we return RX480 over pcie debacle?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Is it all nonsense or is the rx480 really dangerous in regards to this pcie debacle?

If it's a genuine problem what's the solution? Don't overclock it? Return it? Wait for a software fix?

the solution is to undervolt it

that's it

So it's a genuine issue? I've not seen any solid evidence of it causing an issue

I'm running benchmarks which I will release later today on a Sapphire RX 480 8GB. So far I haven't encountered any issues with power or temperature on a 5 year old mobo. However, I haven't overclocked it past 1328 MHz which is what the XFX Black Edition comes at. I am waiting on an official statement from AMD resolving the issue before I try to push the card to its limits or consider returning it. The policy from Newegg states that my card is Return for Replacement only, but if the PCIe issue turns out to be actually dangerous or they have to introduce a BIOs update which limits the performance I will send the card back and dispute the credit card charge. Homie don't play that.

Question, Some motherboards have that extra connector for power to the PCIE slots in multigpu configurations. Could that help with this issue, are these motherboards built any better since they have the capability?

After reading things it's not a genuine issue. It's an issue where some motherboards actually send more power over the PCIe slots than others and of course the thirsty GPU will gladly take the voltage.

Probably they will fix it soon. It's easy to fix it with the voltage controller that they use.

Heck people send cards back for lower than desired ASIC or coil whine even though there is technically nothing wrong with it. They will sure try with this 'issue'.
