I've assembled my first AMD based rig. I'm quite surprised and happy by the results. It's something I wanted to do for a long time.


The thing is, my new Sapphire RX 5700 Pulse has high temps on idle, about 50-55°C with a 144hzrefresh monitor. I had to create a custom fan curve to lower the temps to 40-45°C. 


Is this normal? Never had this issue before with Nvidia, could be a Radeon or Sapphire thing? Did anyone experience the same thing? 


Thanks in advance !
