R9 390 Fans Kicking on watching Youtube in 360p

Hey Everyone,


Recently I built a new rig (and used my previous R9 390 Graphics Card).


New System is:


-Asus TUF 270 mk.2 Motherboard

-16 GB Ram

- Windows 10

- Kaby Lake i7-7700k Processor

- Xfx R9 390 (8GB) Graphics Card


My Problem is, on my old rig (old Asus with AMD A8-5500 Processor), I could play games and watch youtube at 720p and the fans would RARELY kick on.....  Not sure I ever really heard them unless I opened the case...  On this new unit, I get the fans kicking on on my R9 watching youtube in 240p and 360p....


Any thoughts?  If I can't get it figured out, I may go over to an GTX 1070 card, but I don't want to go off my R9 if it's an issue I can address somehow....  Let me know if anyone has any helpful info...  I'm not the most computer knowledgeable person so if I left out any useful info, let me know....
