    Am running GPU folding but if that temp for 24 hour operation is dangerous then its not for me

    108C??? I would say that is too hot, but that is just me, the 4890 should hang around 70-80C max if you have decent case cooling.

    It should scale itself back if it gets too hot. However 108 does sound quite toasty. Mine hits up to around 80-85.

    Yea that is a little too high, both of mine hover around 75-85 under full load with a decent OC. Check your fans speeds, perhaps it is on manual and quite low?

    I think its to close to the other 4890 and the fan is just sucking hot air from that card


    Might move it to the pci-e x8 slot

    GPU1: GPU Diode (MemIO) 90 °C (194 °F)

    GPU2: GPU Diode (MemIO) 66 °C (151 °F)

    Ah I just saw you have the vapor-x models, man that is way too hot for that cooling solution. I think your right on my setup the top card is always a few degrees higher too. Just up the fan on the top card, from what I hear they are very quiet anyway.

    My 3 XFX cards dont go over 70c core temp, not sure what the MEMIO temp is, maybe memory?, never really payed attention to that one. I will next time.

    I'm not sure for memory, but the rest of the card shouldn't go over 100C

    Hey

    I have a crossfire setup with 2 Vapor - X 4890's too.

    Sometimes MemIO diode on the master card reads over 100 °C . It seems to me that MemIO has something to do with memory. The second card's memory remains cool because it's memory is completely inactive in crossfire setups.

    His XFX cards use the official cooler which efficienlty cools the entire PCB. Vapor-X models however only cool cruical components of the PCB (memory chips, GPU itself and other) I think that the MemIO diode is located outside the vapor-x's cooling capabilities.

    @Will S Are you using EVEREST ? Well I do. Maybe there's a bug in the current relase.

    yes...using Everest but the cards run hot...just put your hand over them when running and feel the heat radiating

    anyway the card is dead ( see other thread )....................had trouble with it in single mode and whilst it worked for a while in Crossfire it wasnt stable

    anyway have swapped everything around.........the 58 mobo with i7920 has been moved to the Test Bench and the MA790 mobo with the Phenom has gone into the Case along with remaining 4890.....when I get it back it will go in there because it has more room between the slots even through its only 8x slot

    GPU Diode (MemIO) 80 °C (176 °F)
    GPU Diode (Shader) 71 °C (160 °F)
    GPU Diode (DispIO) 72 °C (162 °F)
    Motherboard 44 °C (111 °F)

    and thats with GPU folding, will give GPU folding the flick from these cards

    I checked the other thread('s). Looks like you just got a bad card - mobo combination (A bad card itself too). You said you've had problems with the card since you've bought it, well I haven't and it still reads 100+ °C on that diode.

    I'm going to try if it still goes that high in non-crossfire mode tomorrow. (tried it and it doesn't)

    Found out its not the mobo...........the card wasnt seated properly in the Test Bench

    Like I said...........will be putting it in theMA790X-UD4P and that has a bigger gap between slots when it gets back

    The MEMORY IO temp is always the hottest on mine and can get up to 7 degrees higher than the core temp. This has always been the case with all my video cards.
