^ Looks faulty, RMA it.
I was a bit slow as I hadn't really spent any long periods in game.
First thing tomorrow.
I have a feeling all these high junction temps are due to cooler not being tightened up correctly in sequence, I can just see them assembling these cards thinking, ahhh thermal pad, no need to be super careful, tighten screws on back all the way up one after the other.
quick test and straight to box for launch. but cooler isn't sitting flat to the GPU. I think for anyone experiencing high junction temps would be to losen screws, don't remove the cooler, just a small wiggle, and tighten in sequence 1342 half a turn at a time until tight.
the people putting washers underneath seem to find cooler temps, but I don't think you need the washers, just a release of the screws and let the cooler sit flat, tighten in sequence will do. worth a shot for sure.
have to say that does look like an RMA
Asrock have the best stickers!
Oh do they
Mines being inspected right now, I told them in a note that I will take whatever R7 is available. I would prefer one with a good warranty, but at this point I just want one that works.
Hope that turns out great for you!
Well, the best stickers on the fans I mean, you don’t get any sticker packs or anything.
The stickers on the fans are the only difference between the cards!
Just an update on anyone waiting on an EKWB water block. I'm in contact with them directly via email and this is the latest....
Yes, we started working on a block for this card and we expect it to be available probably by the end of March.
Best regards, Igor"
Can someone confirm which Radeon VII bios I should be using please X86 or X64?
I'm running the Win 10 pro 64 bit operating system with a Ryzen cpu.
Has anyone tried using a vega water block on the radeon 7 yet?
Very different vrm layout, I've seen a aio mod which even on a 240mm rad with push pull the temps where very good. So an EKWB block should perform like the current Vega block I have fingers crossed!
No, but I’m thinking about it, I have 2 lc vega sitting in there boxes currently!
No idea if they will fit!
Anyone with an ultra wide monitor wish to share their experiences in gaming with the VII?
I've been playing BFV on my ultrawide - freesync at ultra settings. Runs like a dream! haven't had any crashes at all and no stuttering
Can't really comment on other games as haven't played enough, but two-point hospital was fine with no crashes over several hours last night.
Good while it lasted.
Okay got my asrock replacement card and it works great unlike the last one.
Could you guys fill me in with what your lowest stock undervolt is
And what is your overclock mv minimums.
I have a weeks worth of tweaking to catch up on
So far I ran timespy at 1200 and 2000, @1120mv, with running clocks of 1975 and a score of 9739 (9755 gpu score)
I did a complete stock run at 990mv also
Got 8944 timespy score.
