Didnt nvidia also release a driver one upon a time that caused cards to die? Shit happens. Bottom line is always be somewhat weary when making a hardware, software of driver change. If i overclock my cpu, you better beleive im using my pc with extra scrunity after to look for issues.

When i get new gpu drivers i want to see the affect on performance and temps.

If you care about your PC and are the slightest bit responsible, 99% of these kinds of issues can be outright avoided.

I get how this is partly AMDs fault, but at the same time, this only happens if you use the overdrive feature, and if you are overclocking your GPU, why the fuck would you NOT be keeping track of temps?

Back in my day if you overclocked too much and it died it was your own fucking problem.

>>
>>51612268
no, but when I OC i for damn sure check fan speed and temps for stability and I also run stress tests to make sure the OC is stable.


I guess kids these days are fucking retarded, not only do they overclock without knowing what the fuck they are doing, they expect AMD to pay for a replacement card when it's their own fucking fault.

So, when are they gonna release the fix?

It better be today.

Their stocks are already crashing.

They just fixed this today didn't they?

Yeah some of those twitter posts are obviously people trying to use this to snag a free card.
>>
It's doesn't matter since Nvidrones have already latched onto this and it will be their favorite meme for the next 5 years, but this is only effecting people who OC or used a third party GPU controller and didn't reset the setting before installing Crimson. Also AMD cards have throttling so there's basically no way to brick them with vidya.

yea, idk how this would kill the gpu. even with the fan on minimum, it's hard to get it to go over 100c because it just throttles.

I've started the gpu without a heatsink briefly and it got up to 200c and still was fine afterwards. I think people are just trying to scam amd into giving them free graphics cards.

>>51611704
Possibly a stupid question but if I have an afterburner profile set on boot will this issue affect my GPU? I have set the fan curve myself, and if it applies the settings on boot then my guess is it overrides the crimson fan lock problem just like it overrides catalyst settings.

Haven't really looked into all this, and neither do I have time to test due to a slew of deadlines so I'm not playing games or anything.

>>51618059
Overdrive overwrote my custom fan profile in Afterburner when I had the bug a while ago. It happened only once, though, next reboot the fan speed matched Afterburner no problem.

There's still a problem, but if you measure your GPUs all the time it shouldn't be a problem. I noticed when my temps were suddenly spiking into the lower 80s while the fan speed stayed immobile.

I don't think people have a grasp on how tough graphics cards are. In my htpc, I had an old hd 4870 that I cool with a passive cooler (the arctic cooling one). It can get to like ~100c on 60 fps video and it's already almost a decade old and shows no sign of stopping. It's expendable at this point, so I don't even care if it dies, but it refuses to die.

These aren't fragile chips that need to be babied to stay alive. Quite the opposite, they can take huge amounts of punishment. And people are being scammed into buying exotic thermal pastes thinking it will help in some way.
>>
>>51618533
You still have to manually enable overdrive,
and there doesn't seem to be a way to save your OC settings now. they revert to default on reboot anyway :/
>>
>>51618585
Accepting the agreement is all that stands between anyone and Overdrive, and I've heard unconfirmed reports of people having bugs even without ever accepting any of that horseshit. It's always bloody there, try overclocking on Trixx or Afterburner, then switch to Overdrive, which has now magically copied the clocks of those programs. But what if it goes wrong? what if Overdrive bugs out again and fails to or incorrectly takes over settings from other OC software?
