            Aftermarket cooling with temps of 80/90o?


            Either the Aftermarket cooler is rubbish, you haven't installed it correctly, or you have damaged the chip. The 390 isnt a heat problem card, and I trust these temps are after some time at 100% load right? If so its a little hot but normal for a stock air cooler so go back and reinstall your aftermarket cooler with ample thermal paste on the naked GPU die (as opposed to a CPU with a cap needing very little in comparison, often overlooked). Most likely your issue here.


            Polaris will be very light on power, because its a baby GPU.

              Perfectly acceptable, anything 94c or lower is safe. If you want lower temperatures, increase the fan speed using Overdrive.
