Reports of RX 480 damaging PCI-E slots - Page 8

Today I had a 15 USD case delivered that is of much better quality than that rubbish he's using. It's got one 12CM fans at the front, 2x12 at the top, 2x12CM on the side panel, one12 at the bottom and one 12 at the top side. He has the money to buy a 480 but no sense to buy a semi decent case at least.


That case looks like the exact innards of a Apevia X-Dreamer II case I had back in 2006. I cant imagine the temps that PSU saw being the only exhaust let alone the actual ambient temp in the case.

This and the guy losing the audio on his rampage board is all I've heard of so far. The audio is unconfirmed and this case is clearly a terrible setup. Mediocre at best PSU, budget motherboard with I believe 4+1 phase with a overclocked 8core in it and a reference RX480 with no intake or exhaust. Literally sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

So your "legitimate test" to prove a point that this is real is to try and load something else on the board by 3x the rated amount and claim that since it fails then something plugged into the PCI-E slot drawing .2x more power will most assuredly kill the slot?

We already know that motherboards are capable of having about 100w drawn (and more in some cases) on the PCI-E slot without a single issue which is way more than the 480 draws so no way the graphics card could possibly kill the PCI-E slot.

I think i am going to assemble all my pc parts into systems and put rx 480s in them. Then take an arc welder and zap the mainboards and gpu's.

Zap them all! Then Call Saul!

no the test won't overload by 3x the rated spec. as i said a fan header is rated 1 amp whereas fans are 0.4 amps so we are looking at 1.2 amps for 3 fans.

which is lower than running a pci slot +33% higher than spec. thumb.gif

E: and where is this we already know about 100 watts stuff?

any testing running a pci-e slot @100 watts continuously w/o any damage?

That sounds exactly like what an AMD executive would say! Reveal yourself Raja!

There's a reason I run my 12 rad fans and coolant pump off 4 pin molexs on the PSU and a single fan is connected to my mobo and its 5 fan plugs. biggrin.gif

yeah guys go and watch this.
It's pretty much detailed and it explains a lot.

This RX480 exceeds the max Amps of pcie by 50% when oced lol...

Over-clocking is pushing a card past its retail limits.
Thus not a fault of AMD....
*I think every over-clocking program even states this.*
If anything happens to these 480s it's going to because of one of these reasons:
1. Cheap PSU
2. Over-clocking
3. User Error
4. Attempting to sue AMD
e) I'm only going to feel bad for those that run into problems with this card at stock.
I will not feel sorry for those that over-clock and damage anything in their system.
