FPS and temp issues with R9 390 plz help

Ok so about 2 days ago i started playing games GTA V and Fallout 4 in my pc i5 4690k, r9 390, 8gb gskill ram.

However, I have started to notice an fps drop in both games. I opened MSI after burner after about two hours worth of gaming(not all at once) and fond out my temps were at 93 Celcius!!!!!

Did i burn my graphics card? This happened ever since I got the crimson drivers. Is there a solutiuon? please help I just built my rig with brand new parts about two months ago.

inb4, should of bought a 970gtx ;)

 

But in seriousness, no your card aint burnt, it throttles back at around 94C I believe, that FPS drop is due to that throttling. You need to work out why your temps are so high. How clean are your fans and heatsinks? How hot is your house at the moment?

 

In addition, the Crimson drivers did bring a gpu fan issue on first release, so please make sure you have the latest version.

No, your card is fine. Like Stealth said, it automatically slows down at higher temperatures.

 

Is your room hot? What type of fans do you have in your build (Including CPU and case fans)?

Take it apart and clean it.Make sure every fan works.Apply a custom fan curve thats more agreessive if nothing of the above fixes it.Also yea,if you are running a early crimson version update it,theres some bug that forces your card's fans to run at low RPM.

290/390's are "stable..." and run at 93-94c (At 94 they will throttle). From personal experience of owning two 290x's previously you need to push a very aggressive fan curve on them to keep them around 80-85c maximum for them to be stable.

Hello RLGUY i got the same problems with crimson drivers, amd announced on their twitter this problem will be solved, until now just keep an ear on your fans noise (to be sure they are spinning) and use it on Manual fan control 75% depends on what temps are you getting on games,!

What crimson driver are you running? did u get the 5.12 one? and i just ramped up my fans to 75% manually. Also what was the date of them saying that would be fixed because if we have the latest updates and our cards are still f*cked up.

Really want to make sure that your case has a ton of ventilation because the MSI cooler needs a TON of air. Try running with the side panel off and see how much air it's moving. You can also monitor the fan speed from afterburner. If that doesn't work and the fans are maxing themselves out, try repasting. I myself, had heat issues in the Noctis 450 because it didn't have enough air.

The MSI 390 shouldn't get to more than 80c even with a very aggressive overclock. Most likely the temps should be at 75c under full load with the stock fan curve. The 390 coolers are really superior to most of the 290x coolers.

AMD fixed that issue and it was mainly with cards that had a custom fan curve. Monitor the fan in afterburner and see how fast the fans are moving.
