    When using MSI afterburner it shows gpu 1 and 2 temps in the hardware monitoring section. GPU 1 settles in around 50c after an hour of Outer Worlds, the gpu 2 temp ramps up to the mid 80's. What is this gpu 2 temperature reading? I only have one gpu, and the drop down menu only shows the one.

    Hot spot? I don't have a 5700 in this computer to check.

    Hot spot temp. Hottest part of gpu. 80 is good. 110 is bad.

    Thx for the fast response. The 5700xt has an ek water block and the boost clock is hitting 2000 MHz with no adjustment. The second temp will hit 90 occasionally. Is this a problem? Which temp determines the boost clock? Thx.

    im pretty sure cor temp, hot spot, and power all factor into boost clock. :ROFLMAO:

    I get it. I should know this stuff. However, I am not an overclocker. I have been building for years but this new Navi architecture(not sure that is the right term) is weird. I am used to judging my water cooling setup by one temp for a gpu. I have one reading telling me I have a good setup and one saying it sucks. What is a hot spot? Why didn’t my 980ti come with a hot spot reading?
