AMD graphics cards overheat because of loose screws

Tram Ho

According to The Verge report, ASUS is currently investigating AMD’s RX 5700 series graphics cards to overheat. The cause seems to be that the screws that attach the radiator have not been screwed up enough.

AMD told manufacturers that the heat sink needs to be fitted with a graphics card, equivalent to a force of 30-40 PSI. But ASUS discovered that it is possible to add new screws to tighten, increasing the pressure to about 50-60 PSI, which helps the temperature drop significantly.

Asus also informs all its customers who are using AMD graphics cards. That they could improve the temperature of the vga, by taking them to Asus service centers, to install new screws.

However, Asus also warned users not to arbitrarily tighten the screws on the graphics card, because there may be problems without receiving warranty.

According to previous Tom Hardware reviews, AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT and AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 have higher temperatures than rival Nvidia. And it seems we have found the cause.
