New R9 390 Crazily hot
Hi Corbell, hoping to get some answers here.

I bought a new MSI R9 390 8G Gaming at the start of Jan, sticker on the card shows it is the Jan-16 batch. Anyway, I am getting temps of >92 deg celsius just gaming on dota 2 easily on the card at night ambient about 28 deg. Have let it set in for almost a month already so it should have "broken in" I supposed.

Did some research and realized that a lot of the time it is because the thermal paste is not properly applied on the card. So question is, can I bring it to the service centre, get it checked, and reapply the thermal paste in one trip? A bit ulu so dun want to make a return trip to collect the card. Shld I wait for spare cards to be in stock in case its really my card issue?

Hi there,

Can you go through the test replies here and check on your side?]
I did a detailed testing update there.
If there is still issues, please bring the card down for a check.

Cheers. :)

Which driver you are using?

It seems that crimson 16.1 make our card very hot.

I hardly see above 80 degree before, since using crimson 16.1, my MSI r9 390 temp can go near 90 degree.

Now considering to add in one more exhaust fan to blow out all the hot air.

Check ur fan profile. The new driver is known to set to a very low fan profile, making it hot.
