XFX 390 getting very hot.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I've have my XFX 390 for about 6 months now and it has been pretty hot the whole time. I know AMD cards are hot but I'm seeing people with their card barely going over 70-75C. My card when playing reaches into the 83C+ range while the core is -100mv. I have 3 intakes in the case, 2 of which are blowing over the GPU. 2 exhaust fans aswell. I also have a custom fan curve applied and the ambient temperature is pretty cold (considering I'm from the UK). Not really sure what's happening because there is no visible dust build up in the fans. Help is appreciated because I see very little info regarding XFX 390's and cooling. Clocks are stock 1050/1500.

As I'm not familiar with EU law and can not find XFX EU policy i do not know. In NA we can replace TIM with no issues.

NA's policy

Where is the temp sensor you are referencing?

The VRAM on my card also reaches to 81C after a few hours of gaming. But after research i found that is normal. I am even using a liquid cooler on it with a vram heat sync. Yes it is hot, but my case its cooled well enough where the inside doesnt ever reach anything near that temp. Also, inside the radeon settings, their temp sensor never reaches that. The only reason i see it is because i have a temp sensor on the top of the card. Either way, my card is still kicking ass after almost a year now.

Yes it will unfortunately. At least for XFX i did contact support before i put my custom cooler on. While they were very nice and helpful, they were very blunt and straight forward with me when they stated that "yes unfortunately this will void your warranty"
