    Explaining the AMD Ryzen "Power Reporting Deviation" -metric in HWiNFO

    I got on concerned about my readings, but it seems to be the norm - especially if you're doing some PBO tweakings. But ill post for fun I guess, 68.1% to 199% lol ryzen 5 5600x 8gb x2 3200 mhz rtx 3080 1000W super flower leadex se platinum Aorus b450 pro wifi

    RTX 3080/3090 Memory/VRM temperature sensor

    Has anybody noticed VRAM temps increasing over time? I have modded my card with GeLid Extreme 1 mm on the VRAM and 3 mm GeLid Ultimate behind the vram areas of my rtx 3080. I was observing 72°C for a good time, then I noticed 76°C, 80°C, and now I'm seeing 82°C appear regularly. Before I never...

    How Does HWInfo Know It's Thermal Throttling But No GPU Temp Suggests That?

    Since ethereum mining is the most thermally stressful thing I have, I wanted to share the results of mining over 6 hours post-mods. I would love to see what people with a stock MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio are getting. This is VBIOS flashed to MSI RTX 3080 Suprim X and overclocked.

    How Does HWInfo Know It's Thermal Throttling But No GPU Temp Suggests That?

    So I did a tear down to replace all the TIM on my MSI RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio - turns out one of the thermal pads was folded over on itself! That's probably the reason why I was getting thermal throttles at 45°C. I used Gelid GP-Ultimate on the VRAM, Gelid GP-Extremes on the back of the VRAM. I...

    How Does HWInfo Know It's Thermal Throttling But No GPU Temp Suggests That?

    Thank you for explaining so clearly and for even taking your time to share your knowledge. It's greatly appreciated and I love your team's work! Edit: I want to mention that EVGA's card seems to provide the temperature read outs for using their EVGA software. I don't know if that will help you...

    How Does HWInfo Know It's Thermal Throttling But No GPU Temp Suggests That?

    According to HWInfo my GPU temp can be as low as 41°C, but the "Power Limitation - Thermal" reports Yes. How does it know that? This must imply that there is another thermal sensor on the card, but nowhere else does it show any other GPU temps. I can see the clocks slowing down which also...
