Since the 10.15.3 update, the RX 580 is running hot even though I have two extra mini fans on it (they are running). Previously these fans kept the card at about 32-35C. Now the GPU temp is idling at 48c. Any idea as to why this is happening? @pastrychef ? Thank you.

I don't know... I don't personally own an RX 580 so I can't even confirm if 10.15.3 does anything different...

You have an H2O cooler on your GPU?

My GPU card is vertically mounted. Probably not enough room. Looks like the problem is solved. I changes fan speed(s) in BIOS. Idle temps are back to ~33-35c and installed HWMonitorSMC2 app All is good.

Currently with the default settings, fans for Radeon automatically stop running until the GPU reaches 50ºC.
