Hi, my R9 290 RoyalAce purchased in August is under stress displaying VRM temperatures of 100-110°C.
Is this too high or dangerous, if not, how far can it go? Thanks.
The VRM on this card should max out at 95C, not 110C. If your case properly ventilated? If yes I suggest to service the card and place a note that the VRM gets too hot. Please send me a private message with your serial number so we can check the card when it gets back.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
I don’t know what’s going on with mine. Under Heaven Benchmark and 3dMark testing, I never get higher than 67 degrees. Our house is normally kept at 68.
Even with AC Unity running on Ultra settings for a few hours, it tops out around 70.
No additional cooling or extra case fans or anything.
