RX 580 Usage Spikes + Fan Usage

Discussion created by roberdgreg on Sep 12, 2020

I’m hoping folks on this forum might be able to help me. I recently got a RX 580 and I am experiencing major GPU usage spikes when running World of Warcraft (and just WOW). This doesn’t happen when I am idle. The spikes are noted within AMD’s software center and I can hear them happening, because the GPU fans spin like wild. Breakdown of hardware below. Any recommendations to stop this? I’m worried about it burning out my GPU.

 

Active apps: chrome, world of warcraft, battle.net

 

GPU: RX580

 

CPU: intel i8-4790k

 

Motherboard: Z97 PC MS-7850

 

RAM: 16gb

 

PSU: EVGA 210-GQ-0750-V1 750W

 

Case: Provide the make/model, cooling solution, and fan configuration.

 

Operating System & Version: windows 10

 

GPU Drivers: AMD 20.8.20
