I doubt so but it's worth a try.
Any other outputs to test on?
ie, hdmi, dvi
Just monitor the temps over the weekend and see if there's any issues too.
Anything, feel free to drop me a PM.
(If you have a pic of the insides of the rig would be good too)

sigh, another case of an msi video card overheating... this seems to be a common problem with msi graphic cards. just look at this thread. u are not the first in singapore to experience this issue...
You are just probably thinking that Msi r9 390x is a cool card. Despite even if there is a beast cooler, it is still a hot card. It's because of Hawaii or Grenada based architecture. Nothing to do with Msi or any other relevant Brand.

Furthermore power tune which is amd version of boosting technology, the cooler it is, the higher the performance. Till it reached 94deg operating temps. Unless water cooled.

390x = 290x, which is a notoriously hot card. Use MSI Afterburner to set fan profile and up your fan speed if you don't like the heat (which is perfectly normal for this card).

He already max out fan speed. I can only imagine the noise.

Hi there,

Did some runs.
Although aircon is off, but it is night time, so my temps are still alittle lower.

Test system boxed up again like previously.




Furmark extremem burn :




Unigine :




Placing it into a case, the temps will be slightly higher too.
A few suggestions :
-Was wondering if the sound card would be trapping some heat there.
Try testing it with the side panel open.
-Was there any pre-set settings on Afterburner by accident?
Try setting it to default. Any difference?

So far tests on your side, any massive throttling or
hangs in game etc?
If you suspect there is something wrong with the card,
feel free to bring it down for a check too.(worse case scenario)

hey thanks for the feedback, been doing some testing today.
i get about 73 degrees on unigine with the side panel off so it is indeed my case airflow

there were no hangs or throttling even at 90 degrees so i believe the card is fine.
