XFX 5770 reaching 90C - Page 3

post #21 of 24
To tell you the truth, it doesn't surprise me. My XFX 5770 has hit ~87-90 C since the day it was installed, if I use the standard fan profile. Replacing TIM (with arctic silver) did nothing for temps.

Usually have to set it manually to 70-75% fan just to keep it under 85C. Ugh, the noise!

By chance is it one of the XFX models with only one CrossfireX finger?

On the other hand, my 460s never go above 70 while gaming, and the second card is sandwiched up against my sound card. So quiet.
Why upgrade?

I've been having some of the same issues with my 5770, and am thinking of removing the fan assembly and cleaning under there. Would that just involve unscrewing all the screws on the bottom of the card? (reference 5770 by the way).

Yes it is. I hear good things about the new egg cooled version, but i prefer the look of this one and its quite a lot quieter (ricer much). But, honestly, just reapplying thermal paste (without spreading it first, i let the heatsink spread it when i pressed it on) and cleaning the heatsink worked wonders.

Unscrew all the screws, unscrew the x-clamp, pull the cooler off but you WILL need to reapply thermal paste, reusing = not good.

I have the XFX 5770 (egg cooler) and temps never went above 64C.

I added two 80-m side fans which I turn on only when gaming and max temps so far are:

GPU: 54C (from 64C)
MEM: 60C (from 66C)
