I also would like to remind you that my first posting here a while ago was that i used atitool and i saw my X850XT temps up to 98C and i posted a message here wondering whether i damaged my card.
My first X850XT i had to RMA since it *WAS* damaged. (!)
I do not KNOW whether AT had something to do with it...probably NOT....it could also be my first card was damaged when i got it...also..there is always reason for caution playing around with things like fancontrol and overclocking.
ESPECIALLY if these fiunctions in a program dont work as expected or have bugs.
Anyway i think if you do NOT overclock you dont have reason to be concerned...however always watch your temps.
Still....i THINK this could be a potential issue and everyone should know this....and wizzard should really look into that soon ! We're dealing with some very expensive hardware here...i am glad my new card works fine now but i will be VERY careful especially when i see temps going over 80....maybe 85 as a max...
well indeed i like to overclock even with a so fast card.
The first time i used the atitool 0.24b3 i notice that the temp raised a lot after few mins of max core test, it reached 78° as max temp during the test.
So i decided to use the fan control.....(it indicated 4% before i checked the override fan speed) and after organizing the setting of dinamic control of the fan i obtained 15° less during the same test but with that noise!!!!!
So the problem is not the temp of the card (that is lower after using atitool fan control) but i was scared about that strange sound.........
