    Hey guys, I noticed that the hotspot is the limiting factor in how high our clocks go. Mine reached 71c which is the max temp you can have it set up in Wattman.

    Is there anyway to increase that? The air cards regularly go higher so I don't see why it shouldn't be okay.

    I don't want to flash my bios, are there other software that could do this?

    These are my temps after a Firestrike test after pushing my card almost as far as she goes. I've had HBM at 1170 this was at 1150Mhz.

    I think I'm gonna stop overclocking, I'm just gonna leave it in Turbo for maximum stability.

    Check this thread out : https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/overdriventool-tool-for-amd-gpus.416116/

    I am using it on my Vega64, and don't use the Wattman tool at all anymore.
    Just have to get the latest version, in the thread (read it all, good usage info in there :)) and run it as administrator. :)

    I settled with 1025mv@1607mhz and 1050mv@1667mhz and the core speeds stays at around 1625mhz as i'm probably hitting a wall here cause of heat.

    And i downloaded GPU-Z to see my GPU hotspot temps and it reached 91c max, should i be worried? it seems quiet high to me.
    But i'm no expert, i hope someone here can tell me.

    I decided to stay at 1100MHz for the HBM, and not push it any further.
    the hotspot temps are for the HBM, unless something has changed lately with GPU-Z.

    HBM has a dedicated sensor for me, that's always around 71c max.

    I tried it out does nothing different for me than what Wattman does, I have no issues with Wattman at all, i'd rather use one software.

    Yeah, theres an HBM value, and a HBM (Hotspot) value, iirc.
    My HBM value is always low, around tha same temp as the GPU, but the HBM hotspot value seems to spike from time to time.

    I use it because it has profiles, that with one click set everything back.
    using wattman was a pain in the arse, having to redo all the settings one by one...
    i haven't finished playing with the overclock yet ;)

    With a waterblock, I'm getting HotSpot temps of 61°C, whereas my GPU temps don't go above 42-44°C at full load.
    I think there might be an offset for that temperature, because i'm pretty sure its wrong.

    I've finally settled to 1697MHz@1.2V, and Memory at 1100MHz@1V, for the moment. Might have a go at the HBM a bit more.
    In Games it goes up to 1708MHz, and it generally oscillates around 1660-1700MHz.
    I've been trying to get higher GPU speeds, but its just not having it.

    Especially with the 17.11.1 driver.
    Its very stable with me, best so far.
    I only play at 1440p, and its just great.
    Shame I don't have any recent games though.
    Would like to try out the New Colossus, but still have the first one to go through yet...

    did some benching with Stalker:CoP Misery 2.2, and it looks great, I just die very very quickly lol. Not really enough time to test it properly, like 5-10minutes if I don't run into anyone or any beasts.

    GTA V runs very good, it stays at 1660MHz+ now, where it was dropping to 1200-1500 (after a while) before this latest driver.
