The Catalyst driver keeps driving my fan speed to 100%, once uninstalled, it goes back to normal. I also cannot obtain any information on my temperature for the GPU, maybe that's the source of the problem.

I tried several programs to check GPU temp but none have worked.

What card is it? MSI Afterburner overrules VECC's settings, so you could set it to 50% for most cards. However if it is a new card, you might think about RMAing it.

I'm running a Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X.

However, none of the software seems to be working. Even the AMD CCC can't detect the internal temperature and setting the fan all the way up to 100%.

I use Sapphire Trixx to set the % to 40% constantly but that might not scale game with vivid graphic.

That should be able to keep it cool enough, might bump it up to 50%. My 7970 at 1125/1500 rarely exceeds 65°C (fan speed 65% @ 65°C), so with your less powerful yet equally cooled card, 50% should be fine. Sapphire will charge you a $20 RMA fee on top of you having to pay shipping there, but it would still be the best option.
