    Hi all
    This is Fan only control program for AMD Graphic cards

    Main reason i've made this because i i wasn't satisfied with CPU usage by other programs i tested: MSI Afterburner, Gigabyte Extreme etc.
    Most modern cards should be supported, also MultiGPU configs (max 6 GPUs). However MultiGPU wasn't much tested by me as i have sigle video card.

    Requirements:
    System Windows 7 or newer
    Driver 14.6 or newer

    What file is for what:
    FCWorker.exe - runs in background, and does the main job. It's automatically added to Windows Autostart (via registry) when application is enabled.
    Radeon FanController.exe - enable/disable application, set your fan curve and other settings. Make shortcut for this to get easy access.
    fcsettings.ini - all settings are stored here

    Instalation:
    1. Unpack archive to folder you want
    2. Run "Radeon FanController.exe", enable application, set your fan profile, Press OK.

    Uinstalation:
    1. Run "Radeon FanController.exe", disable application, Press OK.
    2. Delete folder with application files

    Current version: 0.1.9 (17.10.2017)
    File: Radeon FanController 0.1.9.7z
    MD5: B2A26EEA3A928CF9BB2953D540CB84B0

    Great app, recently i installed Corsair HG10 with Water 3.0 Performer and i was searching for light app that will allow me to set curve for stock fan that cools my VRM.

    When i try to enable Radeon FanController i get "Failed to set data for 'Radeon FanController' " error message

    I'm on Win 10 Pro
    GPU 290X ref board Relive 17.4.4
    3 monitor setup
    your program shows 3 GPU in General tab GPU List

    Hi Nicus, you may need to run Radeon FanController.exe as admin. When enabled it adds autostart item to registry there : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. However adding to HKEY_CURRENT_USER shouldn't require admin rights (similar key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE require) so it can be also antyvirus software blocking writing to that key
    Bug with those 2 "ghost" GPUs fixed in 0.1.3, download new version

    It was 360 Total Security causing problem it does such thing so rarely that i forgot about trying turning off AV software.
    Thanks for help now its working perfect with custom fan curve for only VRM cooling :)
