XFX RX 590 Fatboy Fan problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hi, in this day i was having overheating problem with my gpu, i solved changing the thermal paste and adding 2 fans, but the problem now it's that the gpu fans, when under load, spin 200-300 rpm slower than with no load, why? (the fans are set to 100% manually from msi afterburner, top rpm 3500 on no load, 3300 under load)

MSI Afterburner is not compaditible with AMD GPUs, try using Adrenaline software to make manual fan speed control.

msi afterburner works perfectly fine with amd gpu's

 

i have an rx 580 nitro+ overclocked to a stable 1500mhz clock with msi afterburner. 

 

try undervolting your gpu, that should help a lot

ah, that is a good question, there may be another application trying to override the settings, but is that 200rpm that much of a big deal, or are you just wondering why it happens?

maybe it's adrenalin trying to override afterburner ... or maybe it's in the bios if you selected the silent bios fans will run slower at full load to try to reduce noise ... I don't really know.   Did you try uninstalling afterburner just to see how it goes with the radeon software tuning ?

switching from a bios to the other doesn't change nothing, and yes, i tried to reinstall afterburner

I'm not entirely sure where you got this information from, but MSI says in their requirements that it is compatible with "ANY" graphics card.  Nowhere on the site does it claim it's just for Nvidia GPU's.  I'm not one to knock anyone for not knowing something, but this was downright false and simply not true.  Maybe 10 years ago it wasn't, but it's been compatible with AMD GPU's for quite a long time now..

When you get first problem and your fan stuck working when you lunch game and MSI afterburner is on, bcs in some games MSI AFT didnt want to detect game as running. So your temp start going high while fans do not work and you face soon 90c Temps. Luckily didnt fry my GPU. Not even MSI Aft support could help also it depend on GPU and drivers.

i re-tested, and the fans slow down instantly by 300 rpm when i open a game, and start to slow down gradually when set at 100% for long
