Hello all, I have a Powercolor Red Devil 5700 XT. I am having a problem with the fans, or possibly the software that control's them. I'm currently just using AMD's Wattman, Witch i had no problem with for quite a few months, But just recently i crashed out of a game (space engineers) with the prompt that my GPU may be overheating. After having a minor heart attack (as this is a relatively new build (and my first build)) i thought i had something wrong, After looking at the GPU i noticed that the fan's were not moving at all, Witch is strange because with the fan curve i had set up, there should almost never be a time when they are stopped, (i don't mind a little extra noise if it means i can keep my parts cooler, and safer.) Went into Wattman and found i could control nothing The option was there But even setting fan curve to 100% across the board wouldn't raise the RPM. So i tried restarting computer Nothing changed, Thinking i might have a bug, i uninstalled, then reinstalled AMD drivers Still nothing. After that I installed a earlier version this is the only thing that made any difference at all. Now i can control the fan's But they still seem strange Like if they are not doing what the program says quite right. Also if i set it to the auto fan curve it will do nothing at all No matter the load, And before it worked perfect (i just dident like using it cause i heard it's not "Aggressive enough". I Also updated the Bios hoping that might fix it. I have tried doing some research but i'm still not sure exactly what wrong. or what i can do to fix it correctly. I really like this computer, And i've only had it a few months i'd like to keep it a few more years, so here is to hoping someone know's what's happening and has a perfect fix! CX Thanks for any help, and If any more information is needed please feel free to ask.
