2 days ago I was modding on windows the bios for my vga, and the card was recording 40 degrees celsius when not playing games with the fan at 20%.
Yesterday I’ve installed Antergos-Gnome, and Radeonprofile and sensors show a temperature of 55 degrees with the fan at 31.8%.
That’s a huge difference. I’m using the os drivers.
So my questions are:
1-Is there a chance the sensors are reporting the temps and fan activity incorrectly?
2-Does Gnome composite has such a big impact on gpu activity?If so, could compositing be de-activated?
3-Any other ideas about what could be the cause of it?
