A new driver made my Radeon HOT

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone
i have ASUS Radeon EAH5830 and yesterday i just updated the driver from ASUS site (cause the one from AMD didn't work saying no GPU detected) but after that the card went from 37-40c to 47-51c on idle ,does changing the drivers causes that

and one more thing, the windows assessment tool gave my card 7.6 before updating now it`s 7.5

Its a driver bug on the 5xxx series cards, or at least 58xx series cards for sure. Use driver 10.10 and earlier to resolve the problem. Whats happening if you look in CCC your card isnt idle when you think it is, its actually showing 99% activity. Restarting the machine works but only temporarily.

Though I have not had a single issue with 11.4 pre release driver.

Blah, means nothing. It will vary.
