Got my Nitro RX 480 up and running. I don't see how they can call this thing loud, but then again this is a guy that has 3K rpm fans on his rig. Yes, it gets hot. Mostly due to the small heatsink, because the fans do a really good job of moving air around (you can feel all the heat being blown out back). I guess the orientation of the fins is this little thing's saving grace. I have my own custom fan curve with Trixx (70*C @ 100%) and with a room temperature of 31*C it never broke 75*C after half an hour of looping Valley. I have good case airflow, but I still consider that rather good for such a small cooling solution. GPU never throttled either (to a point).
The VRMs are this things downfall. They get HOT. They are always at least 10*C above core temperatures, even with an aggressive fan curve. Still, I did not noticed any problems until they broke 90*C, which is when clocks started to fluctuate a bit during heavy load.
I plan to latter change the stock cooler for I guess my old Twin Turbo II or get an Accelero Xtreme III for cheap on Amazon. I will have to figure out what to do about the VRMs, but I guess if I swap the fans on the Arctic coolers for something beefy it won't be such a problem.
Also, I found the performance increases over my old Pitcairn interesting. On most of my old games (DX11 and before), performance didn't really go up that much. However, in DX12 and Vulcan titles the differences are huge. I mean, I can practically max out DOOM 4 now with 50-60fps.
Works okay in Linux too with the AMDGPU driver. Have not tried AMD's own hybrid driver yet.

That's odd you have issues after 90C on your VRMs. I have the 470 (pretty much identical, 8gb samsung 2000mhz memory and all) and my VRMs hit over 100C more than once, and I never noticed any sort of performance hit when they did, these VRMs are rated to 120C, have you increased your power limit? Because I was having slight throttling and fluctuations, but it was due to hitting power limit, so I undervolted and raised the power limit (in wattman) and haven't had an issue with that since.

The 2 latest driver updates (ReLive included) have progressively lowered the heat up of my card, meaning, I used to hit around 82C max with fans hitting 88%, and 102C on my VRM1 temps, last driver dropped that to 72C with 60% fans, and 86C on the VRMs, ReLive Drivers have me at 74C max with 50% fans max and a VRM1 temp of 80-85C after a few hours of Battlefield 1 on mostly ultra settings. (I get 50-60FPS even with my A10-6800k, and that's absolutely the bottleneck there)

As far as fans go, I'm not a "silent funatic" but the only time I've heard my Nitro's fans was when I ran a fan test with trixx and they hit 90-100%.

I've also read multiple times that if you use wattman and trixx, you can have issues with settings being reverted in one or the other. So I personally just stick with Wattman, it's actually pretty nice now.

These are the relevant parts I have that might be affecting the overclock, but I don't know. I've just never been able to get as high of an overclock as reviewers. Is that because they almost always get better than average samples?
Code:
Motherboard:   ASRock H97M-ITX/AC Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard
Power Supply:  SeaSonic 760W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

What kind of overclocks are you guys getting? Hard to find the overclock stats in this thread.

Mid-high 1300's are common. You have to do some voltage modding/tweaking outside of the driver to go higher.

My RX 470 Platinum tops out ~1350 with default maximum voltage of 1175mv, though the power limit will start kicking in at ~1300 with the power limit setting at +50%.

With a customized BIOS it will hit ~1400, new drivers locks out an edited BIOS though.

After the last update, the problem of wattman settings stuck at default after wake up from sleep is back, at least for me. Any know fix for that?

Question about this, basically, what's the point? I mean, other than to help someone else either make money or win some contest? I see it's something to do with like protiens and whatnot, but why not each indiviually enter our own scores/stats?

I asked a similar question once and was booed off the stage in the folding community. Essentially, 10 years ago this thing was supposed to find a cure for cancer. Now, after 1,000,000,000,000 watts of GPU energy spent, and no cure found, these guys just mostly like to chest-pound themselves over how big their score is. So it's mostly a duck-measuring contest, with just sprinkles of "i'm helping humanity more than your are" left smile.gif

Right on, thanks for the reply. Basically what I thought. My electric bill is already high enough, and I got my card for gaming anyway. haha thumb.gif

I took this from another post from the EVGA website:

The gentleman posed these same questions.
Quote:
Poster:
1) If you look at what Folding@home has accomplished in the last 10 years, it has really accomplished pretty close to 0 clinically and medically relevant research. ... or in fields of theoretical bio, which, unfortunately, is a far cry away from those of you saying it will help cure, Huntington's, for example.


2) It generates very little usable data ... protein biology as it stands right now and will stand for the foreseeable future, only uses protein data on the second-timescale, where Folding@home gives data on the millisecond time scale, three orders of magnitude smaller. ... at the current state of molecular bio, the data it provides is essentially useless and provides no foreseeable benefit in the research of clinical biology (the stuff that sick people care about).

3) The price of this project is enormous. I know that it's mostly people donating their time and resources but they still have to fork over a lot of money in order to fold. ... It just seems like a lot of resources that could be better spent helping the sick in other ways.


Response:
I won't claim knowledge of the research specifics, but respond based on my general thoughts about the investment we are making in future applications of the research.

Point 1: how long does it take to get medicenes and treatments approved? if the basic research isn't done now, won't the actual applications be that much further into the future? Someone has to do the upfront research, which can be fed into the evaluation of treatments.

Point 2: three orders of magnitude better than the current state of molecular biology! doesn't that sound like a major advance?! not just an order of magnitude, but three. Ok, so today people don't know how to use the data. If it is there when the right person has an insight, no one will have to wait 5 or 10 years for them to obtain the data to follow-up on their inspiration. Let's get these work-units done, so someone can win a Nobel Prize and help us all.

Point 3: People have long made arguments about how to spend money to help people. Do you spend it on education or health care? On defense? On infrastructure? On basic research? On direct aid to the poor? This argument can be used ad infinitum. I think it is about the balance. I give money other ways to charities and to my community to meet current needs and short term needs. This project is one for my children (and grand-children to come). I like giving directly. I'm doing work for the scientists and donating directly. I'm not giving $10 only to have $3 (or $5 or $7) eaten up in administrative fees, bureaucracy and other overhead.

I could just as easily blow the same amount of money on drinks, dinner out, gambling, sports events, concerts, etc... No one would really think twice about me spending that amount of money for something "fun", so why shouldn't I spend it here? Maybe, just maybe, I'm betting on the right horse and we'll all be better off for it.

I do it, because I can technically and because my ethical senses tell me I owe this to other people. It is one way I can help build a better world. It is not something everyone does, but I believe in this research and the promise it holds.

As for the scores...yes, some may brag. It does create a little competition between users/teams though.

folding@home is also a good way to test your overclocks. If there is a weakness....it may bring it out. It does tax a system pretty hard.

FYI, I'm not claiming that just because someone folds that they are better than anyone, or that they are doing more to help humanity. We do it because we have faith that it will help with research. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day it just may.

So I think folding@home is more that a "duck-measuring" contest, as you so eloquently put it. I'm not booing you off the stage btw. Just pointing out that it's a little more than what you asserted in your post. I mean, perhaps you donate to another cause in a different way. wink.gif

For some us, it's just a way to give back, and hopefully provide a better future for ALL of us. thumb.gif
