Yes, raise the power limit and boost your fans in WattMan. This card has actively cooled 6-phase VRM so you should be fine, in theory.

and does anyone know what i can expect from its bios switch and what the different switch positions have on it by stock? i was not able to find anyting on the web about the xfx cards:thinking:

You're welcome :) Didn't have much else better to do when I woke up at 3AM due to a sinus infection frown.gif 

 

The i5's are definitely the way to go if you don't wanna shell out the extra bucks for an i7...they're work horses proving their capabilities time and time again.

 


 

What @ronnin426850 said regarding the throttling.  If you don't want to invest any time, then just crank the Power Target slider over to 50% and your problem should be fixed.  If you want to spend a little more time then you can play around with the Power Target and see what the lowest % will eliminate throttling, which will help minimize power consumption, heat and noise.

 

Nearly all reference cards (AFAIK) can show a decent benefit from the combination of an undervolt while increasing the power target.  I'm not sure if this holds true for the AIB cards or not, but it would be worth a shot as it can reduce heat and noise while still boosting performance.  It may take a little massaging, but once you get the card dialed in the performance is quite nice.  I don't know what card you came from @kromar, but with a mild overclock the RX 480 is easily in 290(X)/390(X) territory.  

 

At the very least the BIOS switch is just there as a backup if one were to be corrupted somehow.  At most it has altered settings for overclocked performance.  Easiest way to find out would be to monitor how the card runs currently as far as clocks and voltage.  Turn off your PC, flip the switch, and test again to see if there is a difference.

Can you explain that? If there is no throttling, then increasing the power target will change nothing and power consumption will be the same. The only way to reduce power consumption is to throttle.

The only benefit i can see is some safety against power viruses like furmark. If you tune the PT to closely match the required gaming power, than furmark will not exceed that. But a new game with higher load could throttle again. On a sidenote: i would prefer all games to be power viruses (doing something worthwile) instead of leaving resources unused.

I do believe it does, it's just an Rx 470 with 480 8gb memory

thanks for the information, watman is a bit confusing at first and kinda buggy with fan settings but i figured it out:thumb:

Don't think wattman can set a custom fan curve you need after burner or other software

WattMan can set a min and max point for the default fan curve, which takes care of the job.
