Re: (Probably late) Amd 12.11 drivers bring performance increase

said by McBrain:

there's no way I could run stable for 4 hours at 100c, right? =

Where I work we check our chips up to 110 or 125C, I have heard that GPUs are rated for 105-120C but I don't have an official number for the 7970.

My 6970 with the reference cooler gets up to 90-92C under load. I've thought about putting a better cooler on it, mostly for noise but also to squeeze some more power out of it.

I see your 7970 already has a big cooler on it, and those typically reduce the load temp to soemthing in the 60s or 70s, so it seems wrong that it should get so hot unless something has gone wrong. Have you checked the temp with different drivers under the same conditions?

Just tried 12.8 drivers...started good with temps in game sitting in the 75-85 range...after a minute or two voltage went up to and stayed at 1.22 and temps were back to 100c...I pulled off the side of the case and touched the card casing. It didn't feel hot enough to the touch for it to be 100c, and it wasn't blowing super heated air from the fans...I'm confused now.

And since I've closed the game I'm back to .82v and 34c idle temp.

What all programs where you using to monitor the temps of the gpu?

I was just using CPUID Hardware Monitor and MSI Afterburner.

I am downloading GPU-Z now.
