Hello guys and gals, I just finished building my first custom PC. Everything is running fine. Except that I'm worried that my GPU's temp is not being displayed in any programs I've tried GPU-Z HWmonitors etc (it just displays as 0 Celsius). My video card is: R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V LK OS: Windows 8 Pro x64
Haven't tried any stress load yet, played like 5 mins of assassins creed 3 and everything seems to run smooth. I'm worried that the fan control won't work correctly since the card isn't displaying temp. Any help is welcome
Make sure you have AMD's catalyst software and go to the vision control center. Under the graphics overdrive tab there should be a GPU temp and fan speed. You could also download speedfan to check the temp.
The fans come preattached to the card, the only connectors it has is the power connectors. The fans do work fine I can scale them manually no problem. The real problem is that afterburner and amd catalyst are unable to read the GPU's temperature, meaning that the fan won't scale up or down when it should. I would have to do it manually, without knowing the real temp.
in ccc under performance did you check the box to ajust manually the fan speed also check this in the afterburner,but there is some card that run at full speed on auto, ( the rev after the one i got was working at full speed )
Yeah I been using it manually for now, but the thing is I'm afraid to play games since I cant tell the temp I dont know if I need to ramp up the fan :S I'm going to try removing the card and putting it on again .
jgaf151, what was the outcome of this? I have two sapphire r9 280x's that do the same. they can't both be faulty, this is clearly software at fault.
I ended up exchanging it for a sapphire, because Newegg did not have a replacement available. The new one worked wonderfully, so in my case it was a malfunction on the card's sensor. my advice would be to exchange them if you can.
