Radeon R9 Fury - Card keeps overheating with stock settings

Hey Folks,


I just singed up here, because I got tired of some issue with my R9 Fury card:


The card keeps overheating in stock settings, resulting in black screen and driver recovery - even when playing the most mediocre games like Minecraft or Starmade. I used to workaround this issue by adjusting the fanspeeds in Wattman. After adjusting the fanspeeds, the card is stable - no more crashes due to overheating. But Wattman keeps reverting them to stock setting as soon as something unexpected is crashing the drivers - so I'll have to readjust Wattman every time - and most of these times, I forget to readjust. This is very annoying! Besides being annoying this isn't very healthy for the card on component level - because hot components will age faster, than slightly cooler components. IMHO the smelly stench of planned obsolescence is in the air.


Is there a way to permanently increase the fanspeeds?


Additional Notes:


- the card is clean, no dust is blocking the cooler.

- the tower is well ventilated, there is no heat build up inside. (4 Fans - 2 front, 2 backside)
