I have two cards: Sapphire R9 299 tri-X OC and Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 580. Both of them have quite high temperatures when under load (Ethereum mining), but the fans set on auto don't go up too high. They sit at 44% and respectively 22%. Is that normal? Should I just raise the fans threshold and will this affect power consumption and/or wear level drastically?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I thought as much, but shouldn't the fans ramp up to lower the temp a bit? On the plus side, I don't have to pay for heating for my room this coming winter.
