Hmm i remember using AS5 on Athlon XPs which were the last Direct Die CPUs. I know it has a baking time but i wonder if it would work lolon GPUs / Direct Die
MX4 just melts like butter and temps are rising like crazy within weeks. (i had MX4 on a 6900XT for three days and the hotspot went from low 80s to over 100c...
meanwhile the MX5 i put on the same 6900XT in late march last year is still fine.
Here's a quick and dirty graph showing my 5700 XT's temps while running Unigine Heaven at Ultra in a 1080p window for about 9 minutes. I started the benchmark where the initial temp spike is.
Red is GPU Temp, Green is Hotspot Temp, and Blue is Memory Temp
GPU maxed at about 72C, hotspot at about 85C, and memory at about 82C
Was it a Evoke?
