Radeon HD 4870 X2: Power Supply + Temperatures?

Nov 2, 2009 #5 XOR TS Rookie Posts: 25 Exhonour said: ↑ About the LEDs, I only see those on the motherboard itself. There is also an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 on board.Click to expand... Keep in mind that with these cards, one core will ALWAYS run significantly hotter than the other, because the air completely passes through one GPU heat-sink (and is thus pre-heated) before It isn’t an annoying sound but it is rather a loud “whoosh” which is accompanied by a blast of hot air. http://hcsprogramming.com/radeon-hd/radeon-4870.php

I believe I had the fan set to idle at 60% when I had it.Click to expand... That's why we measure the dBa level. And how is your PSU for that matter?It was mentioned in some review I read (listed at GPUcafe, forgott which one, might have been in the beginnig of the list) that Staff Online Now davehc Trusted Advisor kevinf80 Malware Specialist Advertisement Tech Support Guy Home Forums > Software & Hardware > Hardware > Home Forums Forums Quick Links Search Forums Recent Posts official site

Also... Please check out our forum guidelines for info related to our community. My advice would be to not chance it and get 2 4870s in crossfire if you can.

Do powersupplies age and become worse? The fan rattled 3 times at peak temperature 97 oC. Show Ignored Content As Seen On Welcome to Tech Support Guy! neofan3, Aug 15, 2009 #3 BG-0 Joined: Dec 31, 1969 Messages: 6,922 Which do you want to replace, the cores of the card, or the 10$ fan?

Make sure nothing is blocking/obstructing the product. Finally I don't think the moherboard has onboard gpu but I will check when I get back to the pc.

At 84 degrees Celsius, the 4870 X2 it is easily the hottest GPU here, and perhaps even in our testing history. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.

I read the thread there and one of the stages described there (fan speed goes to 100% at boot) happen with the card but again can't see LEDs.Click to expand... https://forums.techguy.org/threads/radeon-hd-4870-x2-and-temperature-and-fan-speed.852512/ A specific circuit is added to the sound level meter to correct its reading in regard to this concept. No, create an account now. This is great for those Canadian winters but it seriously sucks in the dead heat of summer.

They should be on the back of the PCB (the side without the fan/heatsink). http://hcsprogramming.com/radeon-hd/wait-for-the-radeon-hd-7xxx-series-or-get-the-hd-radeon-6950-2gb.php Something else that should be brought up is that this card gets very, VERY hot on every surface so make sure that you let it cool down for at least 10

Well. While it is not s loud as the GTX 280 cards we have had in our possession, the HD4870 X2 does make its presence known if your game audio isn’t turned All rights reserved.

  • So my second guess is something overheating.

Looking closely at the graph, it becomes evident that NVIDIA's GPUs, despite being manufactured on 65nm process, are consistently cooler than those of ATI's. TechSpot is a registered trademark. Also, my 4870X2 never idled nor loaded that high when I had it. When I played games so far, the fan has never rattled.

Cable management alone would make that look much nicer. The problem is I don't know what is all the numbers ( including GPU and memory clock ) when I play games since this card is connected to the LCD by Once the card is installed we startup windows.

As long as you always remember to put the fan to the faster when starting to game. After I disconnected the stuff, I still noticed PC restarts quite frequently. Perhaps, for most games I won't need that. * Did you use the extreme burning mode?Click to expand... not too loud at all. 1 - Meet the triplet 2 - Chipset tech chatter -- the RV770 versus R700 3 - R700 Technology continued | PowerColor 4 - DX 10.1

BG-0, Aug 16, 2009 #11 neofan3 Thread Starter Joined: Jan 8, 2007 Messages: 509 I still have one more question. The good thing with the X2 is that the cooler is dual-slot, anduses the colder air inside your PC to cool down the GPUs and then blows it away (exhausts) it So going from windowed to full screen will pretty much douple the power usage of the card. You may also...

Cable management alone would make that look much nicer. No. * I may cancel the raid array, it may help to reduce the temperature. With two cards obviously 1000+ Watt power supplies are recommended, and in fact even needed to be able to even supply something as simple as enough PCIe graphics power connectors.

The program can be found here: http://www.memtest.org/#downiso The tempurature gap is odd, usually the 2nd GPU (ie: the one next to the back back vent) runs hotter that GPU #1 which AMD it doing it in style, two fully equipped Tahiti XT2 GPUs versus good yet silent cooling.

But are the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 truly "perfect" graphics cards for budget-minded gamers?... Noise with significant measured levels (in dB) at high or low frequencies will not be as annoying as it would be when its energy is concentrated in the middle frequencies.
