    Hi i have a Sapphire RX480 Nitro+ 4Gb and ever since upgrading to windows 10 in January (using the adrenaline drivers, previously i had windows 7) whenever i leave my computer in IDLE after my monitors go to sleep randomly for a few seconds the card's fan will go up to 100%. I am using the Performance power plan and i disabled sleep and only left the option for the monitors to power off when not in use for 15 minutes...

    Sounds to me some sensor is giving out of range readings, or is not being read properly, causing the fans to spike.

    1) What build of OS are you using? (winver.exe)
    2) Did you DDU and reinstall the driver?
    3) Is your Win10 a fresh install, or an upgrade to Win10?

    2. Yes, used DDU both reinstalling the driver and even upgrading it later on.
    3. Fresh install.

    This happens to me all the time if I am running MSI Afterburner or Hwinfo64 in the background with overclock settings applied. Just setting the clocks back to default and quitting the monitoring app helps.
