More simple my friend, open Wattmon, in the air unlocked bios I have a voltage Offset of 13 and I see a few pictures here the people have 14 - So probably that's the difference it's 1 point x 6.25 mv so.. its probably you have there you 8 mv

So put the air unlocked bios, put your Stable OC voltages, clocks, all that, and make sure in WattTool have 14 of offset, then check probably will be stable now.-

You can check that, with your original bios put the stable voltage and see de Vdrop at full load, then put the air unlocked bios at the same test and see de Vdrop probably you have a difference of Vdrop - how much? probably 8mv

If I have time tomorrow I might do that. I'm still tweaking my bios. You're probably right. I was just looking to not run my offset. My offset raises my idle voltage by 87.5 mv. If I forget and leave it on, I worried it would mess with my driver initialization. I wanted to find a way to do my voltage and overclock without messing with idle or the lower p states. The issue with the unlocked air bios was just a step in the process of working out my p0 voltage issue.

edit: my p0 and oc are fine with my modified bios. so I'll only check the air bios again if I'm bored. lol

My overclock still puts idle at 887.5.mv. I'll still go back to stock for netflix sessions I guess. Unless someone tells me it's perfectly fine to run 87mv higher than stock for only 300mh p0 speeds.

Weird how this worked but the asus utility wasn't stable at similar settings but I was getting 2fps higher in the opening scene that I should have for those settings. Makes me think something was reported incorrectly.

87mv extra wont hurt anything, it will just pull a bit extra power and make a little extra heat.

Now you tell me. lol. I just spent a day and a half getting a custom bios working correctly. I also degraded my vmem a bit cpying the 1750 timings on to 2000 timings. I have to run 25mhz slower for max overclock on my video memory now on stock timings. Live and learn. I'm getting a little less then 1% lower benches than before. I have 10% more power limit so that made up a little of the difference.



2220 was my max memory overclock before. 2205 set in my bios is no longer stable. 2195 is stable. Rather than risking flashing my bios a 10th time, I'm just going to set my memory lower with powertune settings for now. I'm running default timings. Anyone see any problems with my settings? They seem to work stable in everything. I'm running about 2mv higher than what I was before on core, but that's more a just in case thing than a necessity.

Anyone remembers a link to some decent DX12/Vulkan newer games reviews? Hopefully with not too many DX11 to DX12 ports in it? I want to check the 480 vs 1060 situation again.
No word from retailer today about stock of the Nitros frown.gif
1060 ordered but price raised as expected, showing delivery now like mid October, lulz... no idea if my order will be fulfilled as advertised when ordering, that is ready on Friday to pick up, other shops did get stock of this card that day but this one I guess didn't or not yet...
Looking into options.

I would grab the HIS 480 8GB but the nearest place selling it is Germany and that's not worth it for me because of shipping costs due to especially Mindfactory being greedy to send stuff outside Germany.
Am I wrong or is the HIS cooler same as XFX GTR? Looks so similar to me.

When you have your 8GB cards, what games and settings push the VRAM usage above 4GB for you at 1920x1080/1920x1200px? The premium for 8GB versions is insane.

Anyone else getting idle temps of 45-55c? 0% gpu usage and fan speed drops to 0rpm. I have XFX RX480 8GB GTR. I'm guessing it's ok to have such high idle temps? My previous R9 290 was at 35c at idle

Greetings Gentlemen, I'm a proud new owner of a sapphire nitro rx 470 8gig card and there is a question I would like to ask. In the radeon settings there is a 'power efficiency' tab. What does this do exactly?

Normal from what I have seen in reviews. 50C common at 0rpm fans. :/

More strict throttling, 300mhz at desktop regardless of browser GPU acceleration and whatnot. Without that setting the clock averages ~750mhz for me with FireFox open.

My XFX RX480 GTR is idling at 38C with 0% fans. But I also have air flowing directly onto the card from dual side fans. My idle voltage is 0.85V - only achieved by -144mv in Sapphire Trixx.

I also have to use 16.7.2 so memory clocks are respected, as the memory controllers use about 3~5W at idle which will increase idle temperatures.

I had 45~55C idle temperatures before dropping the idle voltage and memory clocks, though. That's the impact of just 5W of higher power draw from the GPU voltage and a few extra watts from the memory and maybe another half watt from the VRM...
