That seems like a LOT of voltage for not very much clock 🤔

Actually the card is not stable enough unless i supply 1125mv ... Especially in heavy games like metro redux and exudos

I am using cooler master mastergel nano maker new Thermal paste with 11w/mk full coverage on my vega gpu
Thermal pads on chockes are gelid extreme 11w/mk and arctic thermal pads 6w/mk for vrm drivers ... Thats as per recommended requirements from manufacturer

Overdrive config i will post a picture when i come home but i remeber that speeds are stock as the v64 bios i undervolt p4 1050mv p5 1075mv p6 1100mv p7 1125mv hbm oc 1075 and floor voltage 1050mv power limiter +50 after the last washer mod and zero fan mode off Custom fan curve going up from 30c 25% to 75c with 100% usually sticking to 2700rpm at 65 to 70c thats all i remember
Update : yesterday i received the ic graphite pad and did the following (lapped the heatsink for 5 minutes as to remove the older darker surface then i put nail polish and applied the pad) i had to reseat the heatsink 4 times already breaking 4 clamp screws and replacing them again ... The graphite pad did not help in my situation as hot spot reached 110c and performance was degraded

i am pretty sure the thermal limitation are applied for this gpu heatsink now
As i know that vega 56 is a 186w card with power limit up to 279w on stock oc bios (i suspect powercolor thermal solution can do 250-260w only as i saw from my experience before the thermal pad )
As you can see in the pics i applied nail polish to the adjacent area of the gpu and i plan to remove the residuals with nail polish remover carefully using ear buds ... I hope this wont affect my gpu or shorten something out

I will apply a generous amount of thermal paste again ( CMMGMN new or GC extreme as both i have now )
And will change all screws again ...

The weird thing that happened yesterday is that clamp screws are getting cut right under the washer which might imply that i am applying too much pressure ? Its a pain to remove those screws and reseat

Any advise would be appreciated as i am going today to finalize this adventure ( replacing all screws and putting new non worn out ) ... Might look into water-cooling in the future but there are no compatible blocks with the red dragon cards afaik

Update : so i finished lapping and removed the graphite pad, used acetone on the nail polish to remove it and then applied a generous amount of gc extreme thermal paste ... Card now can do about 220 to 240w of sustained usage with my uv/oc settings ... I think the gc extreme need to settle if i am not mistaken because it felt very fuild similar to kryonaut ( cmmgnk new was alot thicker and after 2 months i reseated and got those amazing results about with 4610+ points)

There is some fluctuation in the core speeds now (1590-1480mhz) and its was okay while gaming ... I am now convinced that the stock cooling on this card cannot do much more than that
I added washers as well to the clamp screws but they look like not needed because when i compared the pictures for the washer mod of other cards the screw entry point is under the pcb while this card the screw hole rise above it by about 2mm from the back so its not flush, maybe adding those washers is a mistake since adding them did break 4 screws so far

I might remove the washers today and try without them just to see if it helps

What do you think ? Honestly i looked all over and i found no one did open the card and moded with this card so far

Nice card man!!
Like the Fotos you made and looks same as my vega56 pulse from the length of the pcb.I like to say nano to this short gpu pcb's.

Looking forward onto my waterblock installation next Weekend(not the incoming one) with a dissassembly video and mounting the bykski a-xf56-nano-x block on it.Few parts arrive next week but then everything should be here and work to get this thing cooler.

Greetings fox


p.s.: try this mounting method from igorslab

Thanks the screw mounting method is Already in action ... Top screws first the the down ones ... Card settles well now as i redid the benchmark yesterday with a higher benchmark score ... Didnt remove the washers or anything for now i will keep it like the for the next couple months and i might look to get the right nylon washers afterwards ... Size m2.5 did not work so i might get m3 ones

Ps: that was from a cold started system and hotspot reached 104c within the test ... It was higher while gaming afterwards

Hotspot is kinda hard to tame.

I have a waterblock and reach above 105C when going to 300W and above. Basically can't use +50% powerlimit or some games will crash.

Vega 64

Is only stable UV ~1115-1120mv @ 1630, settings.
1080Mhz HBM.

using only +40% power ~270W it doesn't reach 90C. Those last watts really increase the temperature. I've realized the waterblock I got can't handle more than about 300W total as it is. Would probably need to do modifications for mounting pressure next but that's too much hassle. The card overall can get toasty even like this in extended usage.

On my Nitro+ and waterblock combo i had to switch to carbonaut pad to tame the hotspot. Hotspot was allways good in the begining, but it degraded after few months. Probably paste had too high viscosity and got pumpped out. Carbonaut had about 2c higher temperatures for core/hbm, but hotspot has been under control longer than with the paste.

hello ,planning to assembly my vega56 pulse this weekend with a bykski block. so you recommend a Pad for the gpu is better than a paste in long terms? i have different pastes and a few 0.5,1.0 and 1.5mm arcticpads,hopefully im prepared.
