    Question Gigabyte RX 590 thermal pads thickness.

    I've read that for the 570 you need 0.5mm pads and 2mm for MOSFETs, but is the 570 the same as the 590? Cards and cooler look identical but I'm not sure if they're actually the same. Does anyone know if this applies to the 590?

    [SOLVED] Why my GTX 1080 Ti runs hot under no load ?

    I just bought a used 1080Ti and noticed under full load it was reaching temperatures of high 70s using the normal fan curve, so I created a more aggressive one with the fans at about 75% to keep it to low 70s. That's fine but the fans are pretty loud at this level. To test the heat dissipation...

    [SOLVED] Audio crackling with high load (possibly temperature related?)

    My PC has had this issue for a long time (maybe since I built it) but I haven't bothered much to fix it because it is controllable and only happens under high loads. It is controllable because I am able to mitigate it pretty well just by letting the fans go full speed which leads me to believe...
