Are you sure the center fan is actually working? No problems here, but I do see that your side fans are up past 40% with auto enabled. That's pretty high unless you've got a good OC going.
For reference, my lightening idles at 30% for the middle fan and 27% for both side fans with no OC.

Did you physically check whether the middle fan is running? Assuming FAN2 is for middle fan, from the screenshot it was running at 30%.

Yes the fans are running, i think is a driver issue under Windows 10 64bit.

Did you try change the value for FAN2, e.g. 0%, 100%, etc? See whether you can see or hear the fan speed change or not.

The software side maybe buggy but the middle fan still working based on the temperature. If you can see or hear the fan changing speed when you manual control the fan, then only the software/reporting side is buggy.

It doesn't allow me to do anything with it. However I did notice WIndows 10 keep putting Crimson driver 16.1.1 when I was trying to install 15.1.1 or 15.7.1 for testing. I know the card is colled and i use an MSI Afterburner fan profile to control the fans. My clear Windows 10 or go back to Windows 8.1 since this is very annoying with the AMD drivers. mad.gif

My Windows 10 windows update stop updating AMD drivers for me for some reason. I can use whatever drivers I want now. I'm not sure what I did though. Well, I tried many things but I don't know which that actually stop windows update from updating the drivers. You can try set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\DriverSearching\SearchOrderConfig to 3. YMMV.

Hiya there.
I bought my 290x Lightning about a year ago with the intention of eventually water cooling it. Now its EK block isn't available any more...
Apparently there's a Bitspower block, but that's not sold in the UK.

I've looked into universal water blocks + passive cooling for the vrm and memory, is that a bad idea?

Passive cooling for VRM can work you just have to make sure there is good direct airflow over the heatsink(s) on the VRM. Without direct airflow it won't do much good.

Try to find a used 290X Lightning block, that's how I picked up mine (with the card too).
