Just upgraded to the best system I could afford. Ryzen 5 1600, XFX Radeon RX 580, Kingston 240 SSD on M.2 and 8GB RAM. Problem is the GPU which I thought was going to solve my FPS problems during light gaming, is overheating. Runs from 65 to 80 C under moderate load. I have 4 case fans in a Thermaltake mid tower and I'm at a loss. I've changed all the Wattman settings and downloaded the latest drivers but it still runs hot. I'd appreciate any helpful suggestions. BTW Everything else has normal temps CPU etc. Thanks.

Okay, so after trying everything, I decided to exchange the RX 580 for a Gigabyte GTX 1660. I am so happy with the new GPU. Runs cool and quiet and the benchmarks and FPS rates are exactly what I was looking for when I started this project. Awesome video card. Max detail and max FPS on all my games, finally. And thanks to Amazon for making the exchange so easy.
