Hello,

 

I have a problem. Since last couple of days I have noticed, that my RX480 heats up to 55C for no reason. When I am doing nothing, and the screensaver is on, the RX starts to heat up and fans are kicking in. When i move my mouse or something it goes back to normal. Card was not OC'd.


Please help. Should I look for malware? Reinstall windows 7? I switched back to older drivers and it did not help.

 

 

16GB DDR4, I5 6600k, MSI Z170 Gaming M5.
