Why is my RX 480 running so hot?

Hello,

 

After installing the 17.1.1 driver, my GPU is staying consistently warm. I'm also having problems with running a graphic-intensive game (it makes my computer shut down completely upon launch) which I'm correlating to this issue.

 

At idle, my GPU is running 75C. That's pretty hot for idle, right? I went and checked the fan speed in WattMan, and the fan is sitting at 700rpm without manual adjustments - why is it running the fan so slow? I can adjust the fan speed manually and have had it sitting at 2500 rpms, but the fan speed seems to reset itself back to 700 every once in a while.  Has anyone else had this issue since the driver update?

 

I tried rolling back the driver and that didn't fix the issue.

 

Any help would be much appreciated!
