Im very worried about my idle temps.I idle at 60c sometimes with no reason also reseated both cards.disabling ulps is out of the question because of it.60c doesn't seem bad but when you take into account that this is the coldest part of the year for some of us its going to be a problem.also next year when it warms up I have a feeling load temps are going to be really high as well.

Relieved to know its not just me getting problems like that.

What are your memory temps like?

Also anybody else noticed the random jump in core speed from idle to full when not doing anything graphical? Its random sometimes and uniform other times.


Can see it in that graph

how are you measuring ram temps?

and yes I have that problem aswell.but have noticed that the temps raise 3-4 c then drop instantly with the clocks. somtimes go 1c cooler as if the card was cooling the time.(was hoping it was just false readings starting to dought it)

my clocks only drop to 100gpu/300ram but I can get those temps on the second card with ulps enabled in a freezing room.(I mean freezing my cpu is at 19c) are these the temps of your second card?


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

with just the desktop set to basic watching gpu-z on my tv with my nvidia card the second card basiclly dead but the first cards clocks and temps raise then drop for no reason.three different drivers two different ccc's.I dont know whats causing the problem but at this point dont thank its going to get fixed.shame I modded my coolers or I would be looking for a refund.at this point this is my first and last set of amd cards.things keep going this way and nvidia wont have to do any advertising. amd customers will leave because they have to.

yeah i get it when i run GPU-Z but only 1 or 2 times frequently at first, then it settles into idle mode nicely with peaks at large intervals......thought thats happening coz GPU-Z is trying to access the card

Turn off GPU-Z and monitor card through MSI Afterburner or AMD Overdrive panel in CCC.....you will see there are no peaks in idle mode

i get 51 at idle with no A/C and ambient temp at about 32-35 so am pretty pleased
Also 51-52 is the tested idle temp of this card

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/..._card_review/9

and ati cards known to run hot most of the times so i wasnt much suprised to see the temps

If your idle temps are pushing 50-60c, you have something to worry about. lol.

So...yeah pretty sure idle temps are important?

Having to keep my fan at 40% just to keep my system from heating up at idle is a problem to me. The issue has gotten better as the thermal pads have possibly tempered under high load temps (up to 97c, while the core sticks at around 75c), but im definitely still not happy with the situation.

Anybody else agree that the 6870 reference cooling solution is terribly thought out in regards to memory? The plastic that routes the air through the sink actually physically directs the air AROUND the side ram chips. And the ones running across the card are stuck right under the blower, its just slightly moronic. They fixed vrm temps and caused another problem, at least for me.
Are you overclocked at all?
Also, they moved the VRMs on the PCB. I'm not sure what the fan is directly over. lol. But I do think that blower style fans are teh suck.

His temps are fine, he is running 2 monitors so his memory isnt going to downclock. Which in turn is going to keep make his card hotter.

If you know why then why would you tell him he has something wrong? Do you just enjoy trolling?
