AMD Catalyst 15.11.1 : fan control stuck at max 28% ??

I've bin playing around with AMD drivers the last couple of days, the newest Crimson and the "old" Catalyst 15.11.1 beta

 

After doing a full clean install of Windows 10 a couple of days ago I installed the latest Crimson (15.12)

 

After a couple frustating days of the usual problems with Crimson (and Crimson making VLC player crash) this morning I switched back (again) to Catalyst 15.11.1 beta.

 


Now here's the thing :
You know that Crimson limits you're fan speed to about max 30% ? (that's with the Fury chipset)

 

Now Catalyst is doing the same thing , fan's will not go passed 28%, this is with Overdrive either  turn on or off.

 


I did a full uninstall of Crimson : deinstalled it using the setup tool, restart, then run DDU to remove any Crimson crap that maybe got left, swithed system off, started and installed Catalayst.
So I about 100% sure Crimson was fully removed and this can't be a driver conflict.

 


Anyone got any idea what could cause this ??
Better, did anyone else after had this problem with a Fury and Catalyst ?
