No fan tab on Msi Afterburner after updateing my RX580 8GB
I had the same issue and I fixed it by uninstalling the Amd Software and Msi Afterburner. Then I downloaded Display Driver Uninstaller and booted in safe mode. Once there, I used Display Driver Uninstaller to get rid of the gpu drivers (use the first option). After it's done the computer restarts and you should boot normally to Windows. Then, you install the Amd Software. When choosing which driver to install, choose the recommended version and not the latest. After all of that, you can install Msi Afterburner too and you should be good to go.
I don't know if there's some unnecessary step but it worked for me.

you should also include your system specs for a better comparison of applicable components.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
GPU: SAPPHIRE RX580 8GB
RAM: HyperX Fury 2x8 3200MHz
MOBO: Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite
SSD: Kingston A2000 500GB
HDD: SEAGATE Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm
PSU: Corsair VS650W
 
With AMD you can not avoid the software that can tune your card
having two layers of software that can do the same thing is a terrible situation to be in. Afterburner (IMHO) is done for amd cards but remains the main tool for NVIDIA

Being able to choose your own fan curve is still pretty useful though

there are many cards, regardless of source manufacturer, that Afterburner just cannot properly communicate with.
the most common issue is that it cannot control all, or any, fans of these cards.

but the majority of these issues are not an actual problem because the manufacturer of those cards offer their own control software.
