5770 Overheating

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I just installed a new motherboard yesterday (MSI 870-G45). For whatever reason, this thing likes to pump my GPU fan up to 80% at startup, but that's not the issue.

My 5770 runs at 58 degrees idle and can get up to 110 Celsius when I play Dead Space 2. In fact, it gets up to that temperature so quickly that it shuts my entire computer off by the main menu.

I've tried reverting to 10.11 drivers, didn't work. Also, my clocks are idling at 850/1200 instead of 400/900 or 157/350.

I didn't have any real issues with overheating on my last motherboard.

Any possible solutions? Thanks.

did you check the heatsinks if they're sitting properly on the card?

How long have you had the card?

Dust may be a culprit, you can always re apply the TIM as well...

Is the GPU placed differently? for instance, closer to the PSU?

Looked fine to me last night when I was trying to get the dust out. I should probably go get a bottle of compressed air. But there was a blizzard last night.

I've had the card for about a year and yeah I tried getting the dust off yesterday. Didn't get all of it off, but it was a lot cleaner than it was when it was in use on my old motherboard.

The GPU is right above a small heatsink (bad design I guess). This was the case with my old motherboard as well, but that wasn't a huge issue.

That small heat sink should make a single bit of difference. have you tried useing the hotfix drivers? I'm using 10.10e and I have no problems.

Here is a link to the drivers.

maybe the heatsink was loosened while you were cleaning it? I would heavily suggest reseating the Heatsink, though that might be difficult if your anywhere around me and the roads are frozen lol

I don't have a car since I'm on a campus. I might try to catch a bus to the nearest store sometime soon though.

Perhaps when you installed your gpu into your new mobo you bumped the heatsink off balance. You can try reaplying thermal paste to it. I dont think the issue is related to your motherboard but it is definitly a problem
