XFX RX590 Fatboy specific question

Noo they can stand it. Just watch out for dust building up on them. That's more problematic ^^

Hi,

 

I was wondering, I have the XFX RX590 Fatboy since last year. Now whenever I start a game like tomb raider or even warframe, the fans start turning fully at 95%-100% and the card's temps is 80 degrees stable all game long.

I use the fancurve of msi afterburner which can be seen down below.

I also have a 144hz screen but I play warframe for instance on 60hz due to the fans being at 100% always...
1 time I even had 105% with fans with 3D Mark...

 

Is this all normal for my card? Do I do something wrong?

Something reading it at 105% is just a software glitch.  If having to run at 100% to keep temps at 80c, that's fine if you don't mind the noise.  If you want to fix that (fan speed and overall temp under load) you will need to address the airflow in your PC.  I run super power hungry and hot R9 Fury's in two rigs, and they sit at 70% fan speed @46-50c during long gaming sessions, because both of those cases are focused on proper airflow.

stock fan curves usually favor silent operation over cooling performance, and tend to be stupid conservative until nearing thermal throttling.

 

You can set a more aggressive, but more progressive (and thus less jarring) fan curve which will reduce temperatures and be less alarming.

it is definitely following the fan curve at 80C

 

As for whether the temperature is normal, that depends on the model of your card

I don't mind the noise but it kinda worried me for a sec since it's all game long that the fans do this... As long as it doesn't damage my card or the fans itself it's np...

Also you gotta take into account the nation of the rx590 wich is basically an rx580 that's was flogged the heck out of it to run even faster ^^ so it beeing extremely hot is one result of that. 

Also 80°C is perfectly within the safe temps of an gpu. Most of them start to throttle at 90 or 95° but actually they're pretty safe for up too 105°C

Aight. Thank you. Wha about the fans? Should I start worrying about them wearing out at some point? Because they go fully 100% all game long. Its noisy but I can live with the noise. I just don't want anything to happen to the fans either... And it blows out hot air too btw...

Noo they can stand it. Just watch out for dust building up on them. That's more problematic ^^
