I have an XFX 4890 XT set to everything stock (never really overclocked it at all actually) and it idles around 60C and shoots up to nearly 100C under load of crysis and what not if it runs for a long time. That seems a little too hot to be normal... is my card going to die young? :(

Hm i have the same Card, and mine idles at about 48C overclocked to 930MHz core and 1100MHz memory.

Hows ventilation in your case?

My case actually has pretty excellent cooling(antec 900 with replaced fans. 2 in the front, big one on top, 1 exhaust, and 2 on my TRUE that aim out the exhaust fan). So i take it mines running extremely hot then.

I'd have to say yes. Have you over clocked it before?

Nope, only ever enabled ATI Overdrive one time to increase the fan speed to try and drop temps but it's set to regulate itself again. The temperatures it was running scared me away from doing any OC.

I'll give it a shot tomorrow morning, it's almost 3am here right now. I try not to resort back to the warranty if i can help it. Would just running hot be enough of a reason to invoke the warranty or would i have to wait for things to bugger up (I think i've only seen artifacting once while playing battleforge).

Since you didn't mention it, perhaps there is an accumilation of dust in the cooler? Maybe try using some new thermal compound. What are the other temps at in GPU-Z?

Ok i'll get the ss of the temps and everything tomorrow morning, the card is pretty new and shouldn't have too much dust but i'll clean it for the heck of it and try to dig up some thermal paste for it.

Here are the idle and load temps using Furmark, i think it could have gone a little hotter but i was scared :(


edit- also did a quick check on the card itself and there is no dust buildup at all.

Yeah, everything is looking hot. RMA time.

I've never actually RMA'd anything before, is just running hot enough to qualify the card? I don't really run into visual artifacting or anything.

Are you sure you're not having problems with games after a while? 107c on the VRM's is awfully close to shut down temperature.


Dust maybe?
This has been covered already.

Well so far I've only had an issue once in battleforge (came with the card) where the water turned funky colours and stretched across vast sections of the screen but that took about 2 hours or so of playing.

Thanks for the help guys. Good to know i wasn't just being paranoid about the heat. I'll contact XFX and get the ball rolling on things.

4890 Running Hot - 12/03/2009

I've used ATI and nVidia graphics for a long time currently using strictly ATI
you may need to use RBE Radeon Bios Editor to fix things and you may need some after market coolers.



I have a Saphire 3850 AGP 512MB

The thermal death of my nVidia 6800 ultra oc tought me to buy only heat pipe coolers which now so lovingly grace todays video cards.

I replaced the stock cooler of the Saphire 3850 AGP with an Accellero Twin Turbo Cooler which came with heat sinks for the ram.


Bios Editing for the Saphire 3850 AGP models:
The bios of the Saphire Radeon HD 3850 AGP is a special bios
The RBE_122.exe program looks at the Saphire Radeon 3850 AGP as two different bios chips , "Rialto and RVxx"

Thats because of the magic pcie to agp bridge used to create them.

RBE_122.exe may hang and not allow you to select the RVxx as a choice and so a bios adjustments may not be possible under version 122

and from what I've read it may not even be reasonable to ask to edit the 3850AGP

( if that happens you may need to use some kind of third party analgue or digital fan controler to control fan speeds on your video cooler and you may have to build your own connectors )




I also have a Power Color AX4890 with a 950MHz Core and 1050 GDDR5 pcie
it's by far the hottest running of the DX10.1 class GPUs.

( some models of 4890 sent to china already have dual fan and 4x heat pipes )

Accellero Twin Turbo Cooler fits the AX4890 with a small modification of the fins to get them to slide over the back taller power regulator heat sink.

I was using mine on my 3850 AGP but now am using it on the AX4890
and using the stock 3x heat pipe from the AX4890 on my 3850 AGP

Temperatures are now perfect on my 3850 AGP



Bios Editing for the AX4890:

RBE_122.exe and AX4890 pcie 1GB play nice together.

I've modified the fans only using the Transfure Function Method (recommended) and my personal settings are

Tmin(C°) = 40 Duty Cycle Min (%) = 50%
Tmax(C°) = 55
Tslop = 53%

That tells the Accellero Twin Turbo that when the core is 40°c to run at 50%

as the core rises to 50°c the fans will run at 60%


If you just flashed yours:

before any ATI CCC / ATI OverDrive changes

before you click on the pad lock to enable the over clock settings

The GPU will be at 500MHz core speed , and memory will be 1050MHz

in open air, on a table, in a room, with a temperature of 75F +/- 5°
GPU Core Temperature will be at 50°c to 55°c

or warmer if you don't have any fan on the back side doing some back side cooling.

If you want to cool things down from there

Click on the padlock to unlock your overclock settings

You can set the core to 800MHz and memory to 1050 or lower to reduce temperatures and save power which is whats really cool about these newer cards.

The core temp of the AX4890 is not as important as the GPU DIODE ( MEMIO ) temp
it reads much higher than the core and you don't want that going too high , 50°c to 60°c is what you should see for it's idol temp.

You may need to clock the ram all the way down to 525MHz and core down to 800MHz before seeing less than 50°c on the GPU DIODE ( MEMIO ) - thats still 1050MHZ effective for GDDR5 which does more work per clock than previous types.

Remember you do not need to raise clocks while in idol mode
You only need to raise your clocks when you're

1. Bench Testing
2. Running a graphicaly intense application like a video game
3. Experience Lag while running a graphicaly intense application






I hope this post helps put others at ease about their temperatures. :pimp:

Just what i was thinking probably all block up on the heatsink next to the fan.

Your fan is 2055 RPM at idle and 4174 RPM at load.
You either already know this as you can hear a hoover in your case or your fan isn't behaving right.

The cooler could be warped or loose, check to see that it is tightly screwed in.

All made worse by todays orb type coolers that blow hot air right off the cpu onto the video card.



I DO NOT put my motherboards any other way than Horizontal.

Think laptop and server wracks.

Horizontal gives me the best cooling results.

There are no words to describe how much the industry needs design talent.

You never know who's watching what you say, could be Bill Gates himself reading what you've posted.

So Mr.Gates if you're listening please hire me to fix your design problems so we can get on with our nano future.

Thank you.
