I have this weird bug where even just after startup of the computer (win7 64bit) the GPU is reported to be under 95% load and just never stops. That means my GPU fan is going crazy trying to cool it down, but it never succeeds. My idle temperature is around 75% degrees because of it.
I can see it's running on 95% activity in the control center, and that never stops. Manually pumping the fan speed to 100% doesn't really change the temperature, and playing a game doesn't either.
I was running 13.1 CCC and the problem went away when I uninstalled it and rebooted the computer.
HW Monitor reported it to being back to 34 degree idle temp (which is normal for my card). I then tried to install the latest beta drivers (13.3 beta3), but that introduced the same old problem.
I googled the problem, and several people reports to have this problem, but those topics were old, and supposedly fixed now, however that is clearly not the case.
My GPU is a Radeon HD 5870
I haven't overclocked my card what so ever.
Is there anyone out there with a solution for me? I don't know what to do. I tried uninstalling CCC and just keeping the graphics driver, but that doesn't help.
