So I need some help keeping this bad boy cool during gameplay. I didn't notice the card was getting hot until I was troubleshooting booting issues. My computer started getting laggy, then would freeze up. Then I was updating drivers and it started the eternal repair boot. After digging around I realized my boot drive is the Adata 128 gb ssd that sits under the gpu. The gpu over time had gotten so hot it was messing with the boot drive. I did a fresh install of windows, which stunk because my backup was corrupted and couldn't go back to previous version. I now run Radeon settings open all the time to manually control the fan speed. PC is running great, but when I log into games the Vega get extremely hot almost instantly. I crank the fan speed up to 100 and it doesn't touch it. I have even set up a small fan blowing directly on it to no avail.
