If you’ve recently bought an ASUS ROG Radeon RX 5700 XT or Radeon RX 5700 GPU, then you may have experienced some overheating with your card. This isn’t ASUS’ fault however – upon investigating the issue, the Taiwanese company has identified the problem; a rather avoidable one.

These cards have been overheating simply due to the fact that a few screws were loose – the cooler on the card isn’t getting enough contact with the silicon as a result, and therefore cannot effectively cool down the device.

ASUS notes that they’ve been tightening the screws at the AMD-suggested 30-40 PSI of torque – but when investigating the issue, ASUS found that 50-60 PSI would’ve been better as it was found to have cooled down the cards much more effectively.

  1. Good blame AMD for that stupid mounting cooler Asus made for RX 5700, I’m using Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 and its nowhere near as hot as they told, max temp at 80C on ambient temp of 31C, stop blaming AMD and investigate other AIB cards, they dont have overheating issues.
