High Idles w/ 11.2

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
As title states, my cards are running hotter now that I've gone from 10.9 to 11.2.

I'm using my 5770 right now, and my idle is 45C (normally 38/9). I was using my new 6950 earlier and it was idling at 50C.

I double checked whether both cards were seated properly (yes for both) and if the fan was moving (yes for both). Doesn't seem normal, but if I knew any better I wouldn't be asking for input.

Thanks, guys

Have you checked your Ambient Temps or airflow in your case? Could just be a coincidence, or poor airflow. The seasons are changing and getting hotter you know, so I would not take that out of the equation.

Better to check the simpler things before diving into something head first you know?

I should mention that I downloaded 11.2 about a month ago and got the same result. I went back to 10.9, and re-installed 11.2 this morning thinking it would be optimized for my incoming 6950 and not give me the same problem.

I haven't changed anything other than going from 10.9 to 11.2, and swapping my graphics cards.

Check the GPU load. There's a bug where your GPU idles at 100%.

Well, I switched to 10.12, and both cards are running cooler now.

5770
11.2 idle - 43C
11.2 with 5 min of Kombustor - 70C
10.12 idle - 38C
10.12 with 5 min of Kombustor - 62C

6950
11.2 idle - 52C
11.2 with 2 min of Kombustor - At least 87C (stopped when I saw THIS)
10.12 idle - 40C
10.12 with 5 min of Kombustor - 79-81C

Tell me about it...but I was seriously thinking of taking it completely off. I've massaged it back on, and it's stayed on since I went to 10.12. Plus, just in case I want/have to RMA the 6950, it probably should have the sticker on

This. I had the same problem with that, went back to 10.10 until the 11.4 drivers were released and now no problems.
