RX 480 question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi all. i have msi gaming x rx 480 8gb. GPU temperature is 41-43C while doing simple things like browsing, watching my photos and so on... Is this normal?

Beacuse, just now i installed windows 10, i had windows 8.1 and i remember that gpu temp was always below 40C. i updated amd drivers.

Is normal, on idle the fans not spin and then start to spin when the card reach around 60C, i recently
got a XFX 480 GTR and my card works in a similar way.

MY XFX RX 480 will hit 74ºc at idle, fan never stops spinning, this forces me to make the fan run at over 2k rpms to keep it down in the 30's. the card is even undervolted... i'd say you're fine, and im not haha

My Rog Strix Rx480 OC card seem to max out at 67 deg C when gaming, with vrm temps at max 67 deg C.

At idle, the fans stop spinning and the temps are 39 deg C, but I have a well ventilated case and I have fan blowing towards the gfx card as well. With vrm's at 44 deg C. Ambient temp is around 25 deg C.

I would think that a temp of 41-43 deg C while browsing is normal.

You should RMA it unless you were messing up with cooler.

Guy with a reference RX 480 chiming in, 40C idle isn't too bad especially if that's without fans spinning. I myself idle at 35-40 but that could be my fan curve. I wouldn't worry about it.
