Radeon 5700xt Nitro+ extremely hot

Hello everyone.


I have recently bought a brand new PC and after the assembly my GPU runs extremely hot. I am talking 100+ degrees hot.

I tried to even adjust the fans to the absolute max, but it didn't seem to matter at all. Every now and then I even experience a system crash (black screen & reboot) without any particular pattern.


Initially I had the 8GB Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 Aktiv , but I sent it back because of the exact same issue, and I thought Nitro+ would fix this.


Apparently I was wrong.


My full setup
- AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
- Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Nitro+
- 512GB Samsung 970 Pro
- 850 Watt Corsair TX-M Series TX850M Modular 80+ Gold
- 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO weiß DDR4-3200
- Corsair Hydro Series H100i RGB PLATINUM SE White
- Corsair iCUE 465X RGB Midi-Tower ATX


I live in in Germany, temperature should be around 20, if anyone is wondering about the ambient temperature.




Above is the picture of the current situation. There are 5 fans in total. 3 in the front, 1 at the back and 1 at the top.
There is space for one more at the top as an exhaust, but that's about it.

I doubt it's a problem with airflow, because I tried to completely open the case to see if there is any difference in temperatures. It did not help at all, maybe a degree or two.


I absolutely have no clue why it is running so hot :(

Is it possible there is a bad batch of Sapphire cards floating around?

Help, please.
