Is GAINWARD RADEON HD 4870 1gb gs VRM temperature extremely hisgh?
Are you asking a question for someone who has the card, or are your temps really high?
I wanna buy this card but I`ve heard this card`s vrm temperature goes very high on load and that could be dangerous. Is that true?
I have read quit a few stories about those Gainward cards dying from excessive heat. Cause they run the mem stock @ 1000Mhz i believe. So they get hot as hell.
A month ago i was also in the market for a HD4870 1Gb and i went for the Sapphire with red pcb but i 2 times over i got the blue one with the black cooler and decided to keep it the second time.
Today i removed the Scythe Musashi from the card cause i was not happy with it. Looks nice but lacks at the cooling part. Put the stock cooler back on with fan @ 50% and it cools better the the Scythe.
I can oc this card to 840 on the core and 1100Mhz on the mem. Without voltage modding or flashing the card.
Could you post here any link leading to info about `Gainward`s heat problems`?
