7900 XTX Higher than expected memory junction temperature


Active Member
Hi Martin.

Is this expected? 100% fan speed on a 7900 XTX and even with the system at idle the memory junction temperature sits at 54c, much hotter than any other components.

On Auto fan in games it reaches 98c, seems rather warm as the other temps are all much lower. I read your tooltip and it sort of indicates to expect a higher temperature.

Is it normal or not?

Yes - as the tooltip says, the memory junction temperature will always be higher because it's measured inside silicon and not on top or surface.
