I might even miss my MSI 7850 2GB lol it's really done me well over 4-5 years, overclocked to 1200/1450 for 3ish years, but I had to dial it back to 1125/1300 lately tho.


Them 7850/70's proper bang for buck back then, hopefully this will last me a good few years too, can't knock AMD's lower end stuff tbh defo for the price!

So, I'm having some problems with this card....


It keeps throttling, high temps etc, it's hitting 77c then downclocking from 1366 to 1100~


I've undervolted the card from 1150 to 1050, but it's still hitting 72c in games and throttling, I was using Heaven Benchmark to check stability, ran it for a good hour, temps hitting 66-67, a good stable 1366mhz through out but as soon as I fire up a game it hits 70c+ then starts throttling again....... Any ideas?


My case is clean with plenty of air flow, v-sync on, limited fps to 60fps too...


I'm not sure what's going on?

Usually these cards don't throttle until their temps are into their 80's, sometimes even 90's, are you sure it's not power throttling? This might help https://community.amd.com/thread/220803

Thanks for that link, I'll check it out, I guess the first thing is then is to uninstall afterburner.



I just don't get hours after hours of testing, low temps, no throttling, as soon as I game... bam! throttling and higher temps.


I'll try upping the power limit and report back.


Thanks for the help!

Well the power limit didn't make a difference, still dropping down to 1100~, I'm really quite stuck.......


I might buy a new cooler for it seen as I got it so cheap.......


any other ideas anyone?

Could try updating drivers or using a slightly older one and maybe updating the GPU bios.

Other than that I would say return and replace.
