I just noticed my Rx480 (Reference model) Which I bougt 1 year ago started heating up a lot. Even to the point my games start to throttle.


It sometimes gets to 70°C on idle or just Chrome open using the default wattman settings.


I don't know what to do, usage is at 0% and gets to 70°C.


Already checked for Bitcoin virus and found nothing. Made a clean uninstall and reinstalled the most recent drivers.


I Checked my card for dust and cleaned it up but it's still sitting at 70-60° on idle, reaching 90° while playing making the games to throttle.
