    Is anyone else having trouble adjusting Custom Fan control on MSI AB? I can't seem to enable user defined fan control, sure I can adjust it in AB control panel, but it is not working.

    It seemed to impede the normal fanspeed of my Gigabyte VEGA 64 Gaming OC, the fan didn't even kick in when GPU temp hit 60C! I could barely start the Heaven benchmark before quitting it because temps just shot right up. Now back on 18.12.1.1 and user defined fan control is working, so I'll have to give thee 18.12.2 a pass till this issue get sorted out.

    I think this issue should be emphasized by peeps here, I mean, I don't want my fellow VEGA users to end up with dead cards due to overheating caused by fan failure.

    Only RX series support 21:9 VSR. I have R9. That's why, not a resolution thing.
