I just installed 13.4, and I immediately noticed my HD 7850 2GB temperature spiked during Skyrim. With 13.1, I never saw temperature higher than 61 degrees celcius and fan speed usually around 50%. As soon as I installed 13.4, played Skyrim for a couple of minutes, the temperature went up to 68 degrees and fanspeed 60 percent. I clean un/installed back to 13.1 and the temperature went back to 60 degrees 50% fan speed. What wong with 13.4?

Try 13.5 beta 2...my temps dropped  3-5 degrees C.

I did, and got even stranger temperature readings over 2 hours of Skyrim. Sometimes the temperature would go up to 64-65 degrees celcius and fain speed would go up to 57-60 percent. Not as hot as 13.4 but definitely hotter than 13.1.

None of those temps are "HOT"...seems a normal operating temp with a heavy load. Mine runs @ 68-69 deg C with 60% fan manually set.

Good point.  Most video card manufacturers indicate temps of 80 C can be considered "normal".  I use a 120mm fan attached to the back of the case to exhaust heat directly from the cards area (ultra loaded or OC) so that I can keep top card fans at no more than 50% @ ~72C and bottom @46% fans at same temp.

Totally miss the point. The point is that when I go back to 13.1, the temperature and fan speed lowers. When I install the new driver versions, they rise noticeably, and there is no clear explanation as to why. I noticed the fan speed will never go above 60% in the default settings, and this is why the temperature will rise with the new driver versions.

Ever consider that something is 'wrong' with 13.1? We had more posts/issues on that driver set than most. So to answer your question "What wong with 13.4?" the answer is this...nothing.

Stumped...agree.

Yupper...perhaps YOU missed the point...try 13.5.

To decide: Try more than these 2 versions. The one which is most further from the others might be the one with the issue.

I don't know if you can read English, but I already detailed the temperature reading from 13.5.

I've tried every beta and release version of Catalyst driver since 13.1 (mostly to try and address a persistent BSOD issue I've experienced since purchasing an AMD card, which I've detailed elsewhere). I've never seen the temperature rise like this before.

Ohhhhhhh...wise guy!

Please correct your "English" spelling...celcius and fain in one sentence casts doubt on your facility with writing it!

 

BTW, what IS a BSOD?  Never have had one.  Good thing I built and maintain MY computer or I might be crying along with you, too.

"Wiseguy", really? Considering that you are trolling my thread, I think my response was farily 'collegial.' I noted the strange temperature readings with the post-13.2 drivers, you told me to try the 13.5 beta 2 driver after I explicitly noted the temperature reading for that driver....

...please go be a dick somewhere else since you are obviously not contributing any insights on this issue.

There are too many variables to draw any conclusions about different drivers causing different temperatures.  Did you even keep track of the ambient temperature?  Absolutely values don't mean anything - deltas are what you should be recording.

In any case, 68C is nowhere near overheating for a modern GPU, so it's irrelevant.

It seems like a big jump for ambiant temperature, but also as I mentioned, I am onlying seeing the increased temperature with 13.4. I use MSI Afterburner to monitor the CPU/GPU temperature when gaming, and I've used every version of Catalyst since 13.1, release and beta, so I've gotten a sense of what the 'normal' temperature is with this GPU installed in my rig and the temperature increase was obvious. I guess 'overheating' is stretching it then, but it is rather 'abnormal.'

Ugh, you still trolling? I am sure there are typos running rampant in all parts of the internet that requires your dilligent attention. Go be pathetic somewhere else. Oh I mean the intrenet. Boy that must drive you nuts.
