Since a couple weeks my R9 290 MSI Gaming 4G keeps 100% Usage after i played a game, it even generates alot of heat ( 70-75 degrees celcius )

I already have tried reinstalling drivers, but not completely deleting them, what could cause this problem?


Motherboard: Asrock 870 Extreme 3 R2.0

Cpu: AMD FX-6300

PSU: Corsair GS500

64 Bit Windows 7 Ultimate on Samsung 840 Evo SSD )


Many thanks, Michel from Holland

It's probably an old known catalyst software bug.

Please, make sure you clean install gpu drivers
