Why is my AMD Radeon HD 7800 getting up to 80°C while playing Counter-Strike: Source since I installed Crimson 15.11.1? Before it was never over 60°C.
I think that's the version with the fan bug. Update to the 15.12 crimson drivers.
Update to the latest Crimson 16.1 Hotfix driver available here.
I updated it to Crimson 16.1 by following the link below, given by amdmatt.
It didn't help. It also doesn't matter, whether I activate or deactivate the Counter-Strike: Source Profile in my Radeon Settings.
As you can see:
GPU is at 74°C by 153 RPM (maximum is ~3570RPM). Thats way to less for that temperature.
Any other suggestions?
Looks like you have afterburner installed. I suggest verifying that AB is not changing the fan with a fan profile or setting on main screen. If AB is not causing this fan issue, then I would setup a custom fan profile in AB to keep the card cool.
I understand your pain... I had a same problem with my video card after installing drivers AMD 7850 HD, it seems nobody is interested or is too smart to tell a good answer and to say what could be the cause, it seems amd developers are just interested in new video cards and force you to buy new ones
I'm using AB only to check, whether the card or my CPU is getting to hot. In case I'm playing FarCry3 oder something like that. Then I set the fanspeed to 100% and check if the temp is ok. If this is the case, I switch it off.
Same happend with CSS now. I just wanted to make sure, that im right with my assumption. Usually it's off.
What about downgrading the software to the last working driver?
Are there any other temperature scanning tools known for causing an issue with that version of the driver? I've got Core Temp, PC Meter and GPU Observer (Mini applications on the desktop) running by system start.
Those applications are not running but installed: HWiFO64, MSI Afterburner and Speccy.
If nobody is able to solve that issue, there might be no other way than fixing it by AB.
I mean, seriously, how is it possible to realease a driver, running cards for gaming causing that amount of issues.
Everybody makes mistakes, but it seems like there was not really a long testing range or a variety of different systems.
I'm sorry but next time i'll try NVIDIA...
I know your pain. I have a freesync monitor, and freesync has been broke since 16.1 with it.
Retrieving data ...
