Just replace thermal-pad on VRMs

Original termal-pad on Nitro 1400MHz with 1.125v in The Division 113temp
New termal-pad 1400MHz with 1.125v in The Division max 99temp.

I dropped back to 1435. It burned at 1.268 volts in firestrike ultra stress loop so making sure my mb doesn't burn is a 1st step in determining safety I guess. Power usage spikes 40 or 50 watts higher in that test than in normal gaming for me. So not burning there should be safe in game, but I added an additional margin of error anyway.

14 degree drop is nice. Did you red0 your TIM on your GPU while you were at it? Did you get a drop there as well? People were saying 5 to 8 degrees doing the TIM.

I ordered a killawatt and an infrared temp gun. I'll have better info soon. I still haven't ordered a backplate for the card. I'll see how necessary it is to get the thermal pad enabled ek backplate after I get the temp gun. I will probably get one anyway as my card is being held up by a support post still, but I hate to change too much when things are working well.

What brand/type of thermal pads did you end up buying?

Cheaper.. "AKASA termo" 30x30x1,5mm

Yes the Thermal Pads of this boards usually are not the best.-
My recommendation its change it if you make a "Mistake" with VRM temp or something like that, or when you finally find your 24/7 overclock - Change thermal paste and the Pads, you will have eternal performance.-

----

Today I was making the last test of overclocking and have some conclusions about.-
This video card I don't recommend in a common way to say, go more than 1400 mhz in GPU and 2150 mhz from mem - More than that it's a lottery and very difficult to control temp and voltage.-
We know every GPU it's a different world, but this is a common pattern.-

With 1400 mhz you improve a lot, and you don't need excessive voltages, my recommendation it's no go more than 1.225v in you overclocking software that voltage in the practice with the vdrop will be 1.218v / 1.222v - because more than that the VRM phase and GPU scale a lot of temperature, more than anything the VRM.-

First start with the overclock of the GPU, start to rise the Mhz ten by ten, using unigine Heaven, check with HWiNFO the GPU temp, VRM and memory errors, if you have artifacts rise the voltage, my recommend limit its 1.225v I am very sure you will catch 1400 mhz with that voltage - When you have a stable 1400 mhz without artifacs, no elevate temp on VRM, GPU and non memory errors, continue.-

Start with the Memory, the memory do jumps from 50hz to 50 hz, don't touch the voltage in my opinion - you will not see artifacts but the HWiNFO will show you memory errors - If you see in a short time have a lot of memory errors reduce the memory clock 10 hz, and repeat until you don't have any in Unigine heaven.-

The final test I recommend its - Metro Last Light Redux, all in max except Pshyx and the SSAA to No - This game particular get really hot the GPU and VRM - And its extreme sensitive to memory errors and artifacs - Start the game go to the "hospital" when you get out of the room and see the smoke, that smoke kick the ass of the video card and if you have any artifacs will be appear very fast in way of green, red and blue bubbles.-
This game in particular generate memory errors if your memory clocks are too high, its sensitive to that of course you can have 1 memory error in 10 or 15 minutes, that's normal, you must check you don't have constant generation of memory errors.-
In my particular case I get with a 74% asic card, 1400 mhz GPU (1.225v) and 2170 Mhz of Mem (auto voltage) - No more than 60º in GPU and 85º on VRM.-
The performance its great and I get more points in unigine benchmark with this instead of 1430/2250.-

Of course this is a personal recommendation and a generic guide but this is to avoid get extreme temperatures or fail overclocks.-

Hey guys, ive been patiently waiting since the release of the rx480 to buy one. Im planning on grabbing an 8gb reference version here soon as stock becomes available... I currently have an old hp 1050p monitor but just the other day found a deal on craiglist for a LG 2560x1080 monitor that im thinking of getting to pair with the rx480... I really want to be able to run gta v at 60fps or so and was origonally going to grab just a regular 1080p monitor but the wide screen seems appealing for other stuff i do on my comp from day to day. I also dont have a problem with black bars on my screen so setting the widescreen to a 1 to 1 setting then putting my games at regular 1080p sounds ok as well. Just wondering how much more demanding the widescreen resolution is vs the normal? Will i be able to just turn down a few settings and get close to 60fps? Does the widescreen plus rx480 sound like a solid setup for casual gaming for awhile? There are a few other titles im interested in and im sure as new ones role out over the next few years i will want them too. Also im running a 6600k and 8gb of g skill trident z 3200 ram...

You are going to be fine i have a monitor in that resolution an LG Ultrawide - And have 60 fps and more in good titles, my recommendation dont buy a reference card if you are not going to put custom water try to get a Nitro+ or Strix from Asus, so you are going to have a less noiser video card and more cold, and dont think about temperatures and all that stuff.-
But for casual gaming, at good quality at that resolution with that processor are going to be very good, in the worst case put in 0 the antileasing and problem solved.-
And in a future you can get another RX 480 for CrossfireX and its new fresh for a few time more
