RX 480 Has a Max Temperature of 70C

Recommended Posts

Link to PCPartPicker components list

 

My GPU used to maintain its overclock of 1330MHz, without any throttling, while holding its temperature target of 80C. This is no longer the case, it is now throttling the core clock to maintain a temperature of 70C. (Regardless of Powerlimit)

 

I noticed this issue after updating my motherboard's Bios to F20, unfortunately they can not be downgraded. I'm 98% sure this is the root of the problem, but who knows.

 

I've tried installing different GPU Bios, reinstalling mobo Bios, clearing CMOS, trying different Crimson drivers I knew to be stable (installed with DDU)-- none resolved the issue.

Below 70C   

Above 70C  (This happens regardless of the set powerlimit or temperature target/max)

 

The only work-around I've found is to set the fan speed to 100% which keeps the temperature just below 70C under load, avoiding any throttling. This is not optimal as it hurts my ears. 

 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

 

TLDR; My GPU should be between 80-90C, instead it is throttling itself to keep 70C.

 

EDIT: It looks like I needed to re-enter the Bios after resetting CMOS. My GPU isn't throttling anymore, although it's still ignoring the temperature target I have set. Thank you everyone for your suggestions. 

Edit: Nevermind, still broke. lol

I only know the Nvidia side of things but on the green side of things there is a temperature tagret you can set in MSI Afterburner. Have you tried increasing that?

Yes, Wattman's temperature target has no effect anymore.

You could also try applying a higher OC that in combination with the reduced clock above 70°C brings you back to where you were

The card doesn't have a problem reaching 1330MHz as long as the core temperature is at or below 70C. Regardless of the overclock my GPU will throttle in order to maintain that temperature. This is where problem lies, it should be reaching up to 90C without throttling yet it, for some reason, has a temperature target and maximum temperature of 70C.

 

Thank you for all your input.

if u have money to spare then do with a aio for the rx480 this is a ex:

or

Thanks, but the problem is that 70C is too low of a temperature. My GPU should be throttling at 90C, instead it is throttling at 70C.

I'm going to save that for when I eventually upgrade to Rzyen.

Have you tried using another program like MSI afterburner? Wattman had a lot of problems before and if I remember correctly it still isn't quite working right in some areas.

 

If you try Afterburner, make sure you uninstall wattman, the two programs don't play nice together.
