After reading a lot about 5700 XTs overheating because of cooler mounting, I am concerned for mine. Its an XFX Thicc III Ultra v2. When I play titles like Frostpunk, the GPU temp sits in the mid 70s, but the ‘hot spot’ temp always hits 100. I know this card’s BIOS attempts to aggressively overclock and maybe the temp is its throttle point, but I would like to do some testing and then re-paste and tighten the cooler to see if there is any difference.
That said, what is the Prime95 of the GPU? What software should I use for thermal testing?
