Test Setup

In testing the XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB Double Dissipation, I tested it with ASRock X99 Extreme6/3.1 motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-5930K. The CPU is running at 4GHz during the test and gaming sessions. Below are the rest of the system specs and memory configurations:

Operating System: Windows 7 64bit
Motherboard: Asrock X99 Extreme6/3.1
Processor: Intel Core i7-5930K
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X61
Memory: Patriot Viper 16GB DDR4-2666MHz
Graphics card: XFX Radeon R9 380 4GB DD
Storage Drives: Plextor M6e Black Edition (OS Drive), WD Black 6TB (Game drive)
Power Supply: Seasonic 1050W Platinum
Chassis: DimasTech Bench Table Easy V3.0

Below is a GPU-Z screenshot of the said graphics card:

Aside from the mentioned specifications above and the driver version you see from the GPU-Z screenshot, all games were running on 1080p resolution with V-Sync turned off, and graphics quality was at their maximum or highest possible settings. Unless mentioned on the same page of the benchmark result.

  1. You shouldn’t be able to easily hit 80’C without really limiting airflow and holding a constant 100% load… furmark could probably do it. if you think you may have a fan issue or fan failure, we can send replacements free of charge. please let us know.

    • That’s right, 80C was the maximum possible temp and the fans were set to auto. The 80 is not constant as well, probably it went 80 at one point. We find the cooler to be very effective and they shouldn’t hit that temp on a normal basis. The temp should be just around 50C to 70C, depending on the environment.
