Sounds like a faulty card.

Here's what you can try:
Delete Afterburner (or any other controller) completely. (Use the 'return all settings to default" first)
Return Wattman to factory default
In Overdrive, set the Temperature to Manual
Lower the Max temperature to 80c........
Raise the Power Limit to +50
Click 'apply' at the top of the page.
Do not touch any other settings...leave them at default 'automatic'
This will engage your clocks at 45c and gradually increase them as required to keep temps at 80c.
Read Power Limit > AMD graphics performance
Your images show that you didn't take my advice.
What driver version are you using?
Thank you for the quick reply.
At the moment using version 17.6.2
I set the target temp to 45C and made sure that Virtual super resolution and GPU scaling are on.
However when I apply the settings the (Fan) Speed (RPM) is changed from Automatic to Manual.
When I change it back to automatic the Target temp is reset to 73C. The settings at the moment.
Fans sill only start spinning at 60C.
Should I read a result somewhere or should these settings resolve the problem?
Do you have the MSI controller installed? A third party controller that conflicts with Wattman?
In my opinion..the 17.6.2 and the 17.6.1 are both bad. I wonder why you have the 'old' control panel?
I would use the 17.5.2 drivers. > Videocards - ATI Catalyst Windows 7 | 8 | 10
As far as when the fans come on...who cares really? If it keeps my graphics card at/below 80c (as I chose) I don't care.
Try this...set your Power Limit to +50 in Global. Leave everything else at system default....click 'apply'.
In the game profile...set the 'Max' temperature to 80c.....and leave the "Target" (Minimum) at 45c. Click apply.
Run the game...have Hardware Monitor running in the background. Check results after you quit the game.
