So I have a Sapphire R9 280, and the fan speed is set at 33 percent (auto) and the rpm for the fan is 1500, sometimes slightly lower. Is this normal? In hardware monitor I see it fluctuate from 33 to 1500 so it looks rather scary. Anyone have answers or suggestions?

It doesn't look like that's anything to worry about. I set my fans to a custom fan profile and they run quieter now, you should be able to do so from MSI Afterburner. There's a nice little "User Defined" button next to the fan speed.
