GecKoTDF - what chapter are you selecting? I don't see a level listed as hospital in Metro Last Light. I haven't played it in a couple of years. Again I don't have the redux version. Also, the steam version seems to have taken the benchmark out.

Edit: NVM I found the benchmark. max temp on vrms was 68. max power usage without ssaa was 210 watts. 230 spike here and there with ssaa. Oddly the card clocks down here and there during the bench. Considering the temps aren't getting out of the 40s on the gpu it's not a thermal throttle. must be dynamic power usage or something. I did find I had to raise my overclock voltage by 2mv for stability with ssaa and vsr for 4k resolution. Odd. 3dmark Firestrike Ultra was fine.

The first one, when you start metro last light, fight with a few darkones, then Kan wake you up, tell you he see a little darkone, you get up, go outside the room, turn to your left two guys on the left we talk you about you get a medal on D6, after that, you cross an automatic door, exactly at that point see at your left you will see a close area with a few doctors, there is a white smoke behind a light that stress a lot the video card and i discover all my glitchs with that.-

Cool. I'll check there. It's interesting that I needed 2mv more voltage for Metro Last Light than I did for 3dmark even though power draw is higher on 3dmark. I'll get my Killawatt here tomorrow and I'll see exactly what my power draw over stock is for my overclock. I also have an infrared temp gun coming in the morning. I'll check the back of the card near the gpu and vrms to see if it's getting hot there. I think I found the chip that was getting hot on the motherboard. I'll check it and the 24pin while I'm at it.

Thats right that because i use that game for artifacs or memory errors, have a big vdrop if the artifacs, mem errors, and temps pass Metro Last Light, you are ok

In PolarisEditor shows max temp. 90temp

so i have a throttle/drop freqency to 300MHz in FireStrike Stability Test and The Division too..

At default settings and +50PL a lower fan speed to make some high temp on core..



It shows only 175w draw in GPU-Z and 83temp

So Nitro+ drops clock because of temps mad.gifmad.gif
Its rly bad for overclocking without editing bios.. and i cant edit bios because its signed by AMD so its sucks..

I think the issue is for $20 more you could have bought an RX480 for the price of that RX470 Nitro+.....

I did move back to 1435 1233mv. I agree I was pushing the edge with 1445. I would consider a powered pci express extender and a case mod when I have time. Most of the powered pci express extenders only power to two pci express pins in the spec rather than the three in the unofficial spec. I'd still have the same problem of trying to get 150 watts out of a single molex connector. I'll have to switch to 16AWG for the cable. I'm ok with a crimper and I can solder if I need to but I'd rather have an extender with a six pin power connector than a 4pin molex. Do you know of one? There are motherboards made for mining that each have their own six pin connector. I can't find one now. Those might be perfect for a high overclock. I need 1.32 for 1470 to be stable. It's more than my motherboard can take. The plus 50 power limit keeps that from being all that beneficial though. I might be fine where I'm at. You might be right for long term. People did run 750ti cards overclocked to 150 watts with no power connectors and ran that way for a year on far cheaper motherboards than mine, but some did have failures too. Hard to say.

I see a motherboard with a pci connector of 6 pins to "help" all the pci-express rail, you have the power of the video card, the power of the pci-express and finally this help, don't remember the model I see it in a youtube reviewer.-
By the way, you can buy one of this



We used in the school for a project of overclocking and water cooling and of course the motherboard was a piece of crap, Pcie 1.0 so the max power draw was 50w, but with one of this, problem solved.-

OP, Please add me to the list. Acquired a Sapphire RX 480 reference. Particulars are set for below in my sig.

You must put your nick name and all that in the first post, its a manual register and automatic figure in the chart.-

I was looking at those a couple of months back. Maybe after my father is home from the hospital and things get settled. I'm not great at metal working but it would be nice to show off the water block more in the case anyway. I haven't done more than case cutting recently and no welding since I was a kid. I don't have a 3d printer but I might be able to find someone with one.

Does anyone else happen to have the MSI RX470 Gaming X. Wattman doesn't seem to function at all in 16.8.2 for me, and there's no support in AB atm, a bit frustrating. Fresh install of 16.8.2 all previous drivers cleared out.
