MSI 390x hitting 90 degrees

Hi guys, recently bought a 390x and am running it stock at 1100 core and 1525 mem.

reaching around 88 degrees in unigine valley benchmark. just wondering if these are normal temps.

am using phanteks enthoo luxe casing with 2 front intakes 2 top intakes for my AIO and 1 rear exhausts. running in room temp without air con around 34 degrees.

i am also using custom fan profile without zero frozr mode.

iirc, the various threads on 390x here show 88 deg is quite normal under load at max fan. yr ambient temp is also quite high. try testing at night and temps should come down a bit. don't think is your fan setup as it looks ok. there are folks on Tomshardware getting 90.

another problem i have is every time i power on the pc my resolution goes to 1024x768 before going back to 1920x1080. my desktop icons get scrambled, not sure what could be the cause for this. never had issues before changing the gpu.

any feedback would be appreciated. thanks

Hi there,

As per what some members mentioned, 390/X does have a much higher load temperature as compared to other cards.
Not to mentioned, our local case ambient temperature is higher too.
In most cases, it is considered normal.

Try out on your games first.
Any issues occurring so far?
ie, bsod, game hangs, intensive throttling etc?
Then apart from unigine, you can use furmark extreme burn settings to test
unrealistic max load conditions too.
Monitor from there and see how it goes.

Any issues, free free to update us.

Try on another output of the card or
boot test on your old card again.
Try do a clean install of the new drivers.
Might have to google around for more info in this.
If you suspect it might be the card,
feel free to bring the card down for a check.

Oh, do you have another PC at home to test the card on?
(Or vice versa, a monitor)

Maybe just ATI cards.. not confined to just MSI ones. My MSI green camp card temp max only 65.
