Amazing video on the new crimson drivers
 


For those that don't know, there is currently a bug with the new AMD Crimson drivers that cause the fan speed to not go above 20% on some cards. People have been having cards die or damaged since upgrading drivers.

Lol

Seriously, that does blow.

The issue has to do with Overdrive in the driver. If you accept the EULA and enable OverDrive it locks the fan at 20% speed. What is strange is that throttling is not kicking in when the GPU reaches a certain temp, neither are the safety features in which a GPU shutsdown to protect itself, ala a system crash or restart. People that have seen or have issues report that the system just locks or power downs and the GPU is pretty much dead upon restart.

Its also happened in the past to Nvidia.

i'm sure they are meh on that
Asus GeForce GTX670-DC2-2GD5 2GB :bleh:

.......

I think I get the bug with my fury x's but they don't get hot enough to matter at 20% fan they top out at 50c on w3

card two did go to 21% fan for a bit but no higher and it was running cooler of the two


and as many times as this has happened with nv why with a driver major overhaul why would you not be monitoring temperatures and or fan speeds with AB or something :hmm:

Installed them with no issues and they seem to be running fine as far as I can tell. Haven't seen any performance improvements in the games I play but I wasn't expecting any so not really bothered.
