Alright so I just got my Asus R9 280x Matrix Platinum edition and it's acting weird.


when I use CCC an set the fans to lets say...50%...Fan 1 spins up but Fan 2 doesnt seem to do much.


I downloaded Asus's GPU tweak and noticed Fan 2 stays at idle speed when I spin them up.



Okay here is the weird part.  Using GPU Tweak I manually set the fans to 50%...when I hit apply, fan 2 drops down to 10%, but It DOES spin up to what I think is 50%.

When I try to move the slider back to 50% and hit apply, it will randomly read a different percentage, first time I did it it said 49%, then 72%, then 34%.


Do I have a defective card or what??

Send an email to ASUS, sounds more like a VBIOS issue to me than an actual hardware issue.
