Is there a way to limit the max RPM in the later/latest drivers?
I set my fans to max 2000~2200 RPM in watt man in older drivers and it works fine with Zero RPM.
Still sticking with the 18.12.1 drivers where it works fine for me.
With the newer drivers I have tested, the lowest I can get is 1300 RPM with my Sapphire V56 Pulse....
But if I use the manual fan curve the Zero RPM wont work and I am stuck with 1300RPM as lowest setting (30% fan speed?). I was asking if there is a way in Wattman to set max RPM without using manual fan curve (like you can in older versions).
I know that's our gripe. If you go manual the fans don't shut off anymore like they did Pre 2019. On the RX 580 I can hear the Fan at idle. It sucks and isn't right. But the way the release notes read, it's the way they are leaving. So I guess if we don't like it, we buy someone else's GPUS. I installed my RTX 2060 last Friday night. So far it's awesome and problem free. Everything worked as it should right out of the box.
OMG, this is so bad. How r they going to compete on gpu market if they can't even make a proper fan curve solution? This is so embarrassing, i have no idea how amd allows this to happen.
Someone, pls tell Lisa, radeon is a dumpster fire right now.
In the notes of the latest, 19.2.3 driver it states:
"Zero RPM will correctly disable in Radeon WattMan on available system configurations when manual fan curve is enabled."
IN the next set of drivers, AMD, please have the option to correctly ENABLE it!
I have the PowerColor Red Devil 56. The cooler on that thing is prodigiously humongous. Sadly, PowerColor droppoped the ball on the default fan curve, resulting is some unnecessarily noisy operation when running anything but the silent bios mode. However, they do have a working zero RPM function.
Now, I like WattMan and I'd very much like to use the manual fan curve. There are a few major problems with it, however:
- zero RPM does not work...
- the maximum temperature is 65 degrees... that should be at least 75.
- the minimum fan speed seems to be 35%. Not really a problem, if zero RPM was working.
Please let us modify the maximum temperature, within reasonable limits. For example, 75 or 80 degrees max. Please enable minimal fan speed of 25% or so. WattMan is a very nice utility with excellent interface, but it has some seemingly arbitrary limitations.
