Hi everyone,


I have just updated my Asus ROG Strix AMD RX 580 8 GB in the last recommended driver : 18.12.2 but just after that, when I set to the maximum limit of power, fan speed is running and I cannot turn fan speed off, even if I go back to the initial setting of Power Limit. I have tried to reset all settings in Wattman, nothings has changed. I have also restarted/turned off/on my computer, fan speed is still running. So it's like a few minutes of silence, then a few seconds of 1815 RPM horrible vacuum cleaner sound in my case.


So I have uninstalled the driver with DDU and deleted all drivers donwloaded on the AMD folder, installed the latest driver again and when I repeat the same thing, it happened again.


I think I can't use the power limit anymore for a while. Until a new driver comes out, maybe.


So what do you think? Am I able to resolve the issue with the first driver of the 2019 adrenalin edition or not?
