ATTEND to other factors in your case that will help lower that temperature!

Consider your positive/negative airflow design.

Upgrade or enhance cpu cooling, preferbly with liquid cooling.

Upgrade your case fans with more efficient and powerful versions.

If possible, add an internal fan that pulls air in and across the motherboard and/or gpu.

Velcro or attach a PWM fan outide the case to assist pulling the HOT air from the gpu card exhaust area...out of the case.

If at all possible...lower ambient room temperature.

Keep everything in the case absolutely CLEAN !

Understand BIOS and VRM and voltages.  Read tfmotherboard manual 5 times.

Hi! My card R9 290  (XFX Force Radeon R9 290 Black Edition Double Dissipation Graphics Card (980 MHz) ) is overheated to 94 degrees, and the fan speed is only 2800 RPM. Possible to increase the fan speed?

Sincerely, Alexander

That's normal operating temperature for such card, not overheating.

Thanks,
2800 rpm is the maximum speed of the fan?

Perhaps using some program to change the fan speed?

Hi yes and a I7 4770k max temp is 100 c but if it was running at that you would find a solution fast. Most gamers turn up the fan speed when they game. Example Msi use a program called afterburner to oc and turn up the fan curve. Evga also have there fan control program. See what xfx has for a fan control speed program.

IF YOU HAD ANY PROCESSOR RUNNING ABOVE 60C EXCEPT IN A LIMITED CONTROLLED OVERCLOCKING OR BENCHMARK TEST...the builder doesn't know how to build and configure a PC properly!

 

If he has the fan pegged (he's already told you it is at 100%) and it is still 95C...he needs to come up with another solution...don't tell him advice that bricks his card!

 

SEE ABOVE POST.

Hi! Sometimes (typically at power up) the fan speed is increased to 3000 rpm, and then the speed is lowered and the temperature increased. I use the card for mining.

at power up

It is the beast card of the series, designed just to work at the limits. Any top gaming card has been noisy, hot and power hungry from the beginning of time... If you need somethng cooler, you can buy a weaker card easily, or just live with it.

If you don't believe it, there's a contact link in the bottom of the screen, ask AMD. They will tell you the same thing.

Hi Amd does not build video cards or have any control over the fan rpms used by the manufactures. If you think increaseing fan speed will blow up a cpu or video card oh well. Maybe I am blind or can not see a post but I can only see he has the card fan rpm at 2800 I do not see any post that says it is at 100 %. As a matter of fact UcouldBrong,s post appears as the first one in this thread. Also the 290x is the beast not the 290. Please do not have a fit it is bad for your heart. It really seems I can not see the first question it does not show up for me. My a*****gies for the forum not working. But in my browser I do not see any post that says the fan's are at 100 %.

Hi just a quick check and the Double dissipation although not much more than 2800 rpm is listed max at 3200 rpm.

There's an easy solution for your dilemma. Dumb the bios and check the fan speed curve. Probably it goes to 100% right when it reaches 100 celsius as usual...

Hammey...his post had stated it was at "100%"...post has been removed...my response appeared at top of this topic posting when it was actually a reply.

Nevertheless, if a user requires running any videocard at highest rpm in an attempt to keep a card cool (unless OC run or benchmark test), something is wrong with the design of the system and mark my words, the fan(s) will not last as long as those that run ~50%.

I know that the operating temperature of these cards around 95 degrees. I just thought that the card "Double Dissipation" should be operated at a lower temperature. Asus write: "DirectCU II ffers 20% cooler and 3X quieter performance" . http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/R9290DC2OC4GD5/ . But my card is not Asus

You also thought mining cryptocurrency would be profitable, and you were incorrect about that as well.
