So i had issues with the previous version of catalyst fan speed controls all of a sudden not working. So I installed the new 15.7 drivers and catalyst.  But the maximum fan speed control still is not working. My fan keeps maxing to 100% when mining.  I do not need the card to run at full speed at all. I use the temp control and fan control to preserve the card.  The temp control works fine and will hold the card at the temp i designate but the fan will just spin to 100% and I really don't feel like having to replace the fans anytime soon.
Any suggestions?
My only choice at this point is ditching catalyst control and using a 3rd party app to do both, which I would prefer not to do as afterburner doesn't work as well as I would like.  This is just a recent problem as it was working fine yesterday.
Right now I am going to install afterburner and hope I can have it make sure the fan speed is controlled by catalyst.  As I am assuming it has something to do with auto fan controls.
