AMD Radeon RX 580 High Temperatures

Contacted MSI about this issue, but didn't really get anywhere with that. The person I was talking to just said to "reinstall drivers", which of course didn't resolve anything. After doing what was required and reporting no change in temperatures, I was told "maybe you can contact with your reseller or your local service center to check your graphics card in detail and directly".

I am considering getting my graphics card "checked out" due to these temperatures, but I have heard of many RX 580's reaching these temperatures and don't want to face a labour fee, if nothing is wrong. The graphics card is an MSI Radeon RX 580 8GB ARMOR OC edition. The maximum temperature it reaches is 85c, with the fans spinning at their maximum default value of 3000RPM (It's really loud!). It never surpasses these temperatures due to underclocking below reference card speeds. Also to mention, my case is the Corsair Air 240 with three 120mm fans, this issue has persisted since the purchase of my graphics card and the temperatures reach 85c in both synthetic benchmarks and many games due to frame rate cap of 144fps.

Is this a defective GPU or is this normal for an RX 580?

 

Thank you.

maybe the thermal paste dried to crisps? The cooler of this thing isn't great from the start, but it shouldn't be that disastrous.

Thank you for this suggestion, but I do doubt it's thermal paste. I've been experienced these temperatures since the purchase of the graphics card, I'm unsure if it was underclocking during that time however. Also I should've mentioned, my graphics card is only 6 months old and often times doesn't experience much load (Maybe gaming once a week).

factory screwed up the application? Sometimes they just put that blob say a millimeter off the side, and then the core end up not being covered completely.

Didn't think of that, it could potentially be the issue. Sadly, if that were the issue - I would have to return for repair, which can be a drawn out process. I wouldn't be okay with myself taking off the cooler and replacing the paste, mainly due to warranty.

The Armor Cooler design tends to be just worse than the reference cooler sometimes

I think you found your answer though.  It's really not too tough to reapply thermal paste.

$6 for some new thermal paste, and you'll know if that's the issue or not.

I'd rather not replace it myself mainly due to warranty, but also the chance of an accident.
