The issue exists with AMD's new Radeon Software (for which we provided an overview) and seems to have a connection with specific cards and third-party software. The best work-around right now is to avoid Radeon Settings fan speed controls and “OverDrive,” instead opting for more traditional tools – Afterburner, for instance.
In its brief statement, AMD said:
I wanted to let you know that AMD is aware of isolated reports of low fan states following the installation of Radeon Software ‘Crimson Edition’ on select Radeon GPUs. Its engineering teams have identified and addressed this issue, and AMD intends to release a hotfix on amd.com this coming Monday, November 30th.”
We will remain in contact with AMD as the hotfix is created and released.
