Re: R9 290 No Automatic RPM Control

I wouldn't use the ASUS GPU TweakII, if the AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition worked correctly (without enabling AMD WattMan and any manipulation in it).

Re: R9 290 No Automatic RPM Control

Hey everyone. Im having this issue to, it does not appear to be a windows issue. I have isolated the issue to the fan control for the r9 290 in the latest 2 amd drivers. Windows itself runs okay, but playing bf4 sp which I played at least 10 times on this pc, now has thermal events at 82c and power down the pc. I rolled back 2 driver versions and can play same scene stable at 60c max temp.

AMD FX-8350

Asus Crosshair V Formula Z

G.Skill Ripjaws z 2400 12gb

Club3d R9 290 Royalking

Re: R9 290 No Automatic RPM Control

I had just downloaded the latest driver that i believe was released in the last few days. just tested with bf4 again first mission. hit 82c again and it killed the game. the current latest driver that does not appear to work is 18.8.1. The last working driver for me is 18.5.2

Re: R9 290 No Automatic RPM Control

I am having the same issue as noted in the OP. I have tried using the method that kingfish mentioned here but it doesn't work for me either. The fan speed does not increase at all. It just hovers around 1180 RPM even while the temperature is exceeding 75 degrees. I have taken my Sapphire R9 290 completely apart, given it a thorough dusting, and applied fresh thermal paste and nothing is improving. I have not been able to find old AMD Catalyst drivers to confirm the theory that it is a driver issue.

My build:

MOBO: MSI Gaming 970

Processor: AMD FX 8350

RAM: 8GB G. Skill Ripjaws (1 x 8GB at 1866 mhz)

OS: Windows 10 Education build 1803

Re: R9 290 No Automatic RPM Control

Dear friend, as a temporary solution you can use Sapphire Trixx, an analog of ASUS GPU TweakII and use create manual RPM /Thermal plan for your Fan.
I'm still waiting for a new driver that can solve this problem.

Re: R9 290 No Automatic RPM Control

Is there anyone from AMD support team?
I'm now on Windows 10 Pro 20H2 and Radeon Software Version 20.12.1!
Still no solution!
