Fan speed ?

I noticed that when trying to increase the fan speed using the CCC 'AMD Overdrive' it does not speed up according to whatever it's set to such as 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% etc...


I'm running the 15.5 Omega drivers (clean install). I've never tried the fan speed utility before so I have no idea if it was working before or not. Not even sure if there is a problem or if this is a known issue. It idles around 32-36c and will go up to the 60-65c depending on ambient temp/game being ran. The 60-65c is when being pushed. Some games it will run 10-20c lower.
