2900xt temps - Page 2

post #11 of 41
Yea that's really hot depending on ambient temps............IIRC I loaded at 85C at the highest with an ambient of 21C.

That was with the heatsink reseated with AS5, which you may want to try.....
Also check your case airflow.

I agree. If it has been ok and just recently started to get hot, I would guess that there is dust and debris clogging the fins. You may need to get a can of compressed air to really clean it out good. Much easier than having to remove the stock heatsink.

you'll be surprised how much dust can gather

Most people clean their cases every 3-6 months. But if your like me you will only clean it when necessary or when you get a new component lol

Hope this is the issue, as it is an easy fix

I run two of those cards with a core of 853mhz and mem at 1145mhz. The hottest it gets (stock cooling, no reseat and no fan-speed increase) is 85c in Crysis on high settings. There is definitely something wrong there.

Did you move this PC recently? It looks awefully close to the wall in back. You nee to make sure the hot air has somewhere to go when it leaves the back of the card. Also, I am not a huge fan of side fans. I think good front to back airflow is better. Adding a fan to the side and disrupt airflow and actually increase temps by adding too much turbulence.

I had a 2900pro 1GB GDDR4 which is pretty much the same and altering the fan speeds in Rivatuner did wonders for my cooling. Either just up the fan speed to the highest tolerable level (for me it was around 55%), or fiddle with the fan speed/temp level feature which allows users of ATI cards to determine what speed the fan runs at certain temps.

My card used to run pretty hot too (I also have the 1gb XT). I replaced the stock cooler with a Thermalright HR-03 and the load temps barely go over 75 now even when overclocked pretty considerably. It's a possible way to help with the temp if you like the card otherwise.
