Thread: XFX HD 5850 vrm Temp problem

  1. #1

    Default XFX HD 5850 vrm Temp problem

    my 5850 vrm temp is close to water boiling point. today while playing BFBC2 the vrm temp was 94.5 C . although the gpu itself was cool at 62 C.

    the problem started after i remove the heatsink to clean it. the vrm is only covered with some sort of thermal pad/tape. anyway after i put together everything back properly gpu temp reading was ok but for some reason the vrm was not cooling properly. so i unscrewed everything and reseat them but no change. i am not inexperienced about pc but now i have no clue about what to do .

    my idle temp is gpu 38.5 C vrm 44 C and on load well gpu is warm and vrm is getting cooked. so i need your help guys as i cannot play games.

    and anyone knows where can i buy thermal pad/ tape or heatsink for vrm cooling. i am thinking about changing that.

    here is my card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150477.

    i forgot to add the card is not oc'd it is running at 725/1000 Mhz and fan speed 60% of max.

    last time, i checked at elephant road but could not find any thermal pads.......you can try your luck at laptop repair shops as thermal pads are often used on laptops for cooling.

    May be when you was cleaning the gpu then somehow you removed the thermal paste or you didnt fit the cooler properly, just get a thermalpaste (cm or tt thermal pastes cost might be 500 to 1k) and apply it in your gpu , for better understanding watch the video in youtube about how to apply thermalpaste on gpu and that might help you

    It's perfectly normal for AMD 58xx VRMs to reach 80+ when under load, they are designed to go as high as 120C and still operate normally. Check wether you are properly aligning the thermal pad over the VRM area and your cooler mounts. They need to have sufficient pressure to stick to the heatsink if you have opened them recently, such as yours. I cleaned my 460s cooler numerous times and the thermal pads without any issue.

    He's talking about VRMs, not the GPU core. They are usually cooled using thermal pads and not liquid TIM paste.

    Thanks bro for the reply.
    but problem is(you might have seen the pcb ) the pad is fixed with the pcb with 2 screws which are not part of the heatsink and i have tightened them as far as possible(ofcourse with alignment as the screw won't fit w/o it). but okay i will try again.

    another thing how did you clean the pad? it is really dirty and lost stickiness so i am thinking about changing them. you know where can i find them ?

    @sensei bhai gpu temp to normal ami vrm nie jhamelai asi . anyway thanks for your suggestion.

    The thermal pad on my 460 was attached using to bolt-up screws, much like the ones that are used in heatsinks on motherboards. I just cleaned them with water and re-used it again. I don't know where to get pads here in BD, but if you don't find them here. Order them from overseas, should be cheap enough from FB services like amazon.com.bd. Btw the temperatures are fine, but if it still bothers you directly a fan over the VRM area and hopefully it'll cool down a bit.

    I used running water. As for the fan, what I meant was to direct a 80-120mm fan over the VRM area. You have to think of something in your case, like using zip ties, etc.
