Load up Trixx, theres the "nitro glow" button towards the bottom, you can adjust what color it shows, if it changes on fan speed, temp, rotating through rainbow, or off.
If you wanna do it manually open your case, there should be a small orange button on the front of the card near the rear of the case, click that a few times it will cycle through the colors and let you shut it off too.

If it were me however, I would be opening it up to see what is going on under the hood. When they run that hot it effects longevity of the card and hurts efficiency driving power draw up.
Be aware that just removing the cooler on a Sapphire card will void your warranty though.
Yeah I haven't done any OC or undervolting BECAUSE I want to keep my warranty in tact as long as I can. If the safe zone is up that high then I should be okay, that's only the max temp, the average is much much lower. (58C)
I'm almost certain I have nothing to worry about, but this is my first NEW card so I wanted to keep it from blowing up.

I see well as I'm only using a 120mm AIO ziptied to mine I think 60-63C temps for 1440MHz 1.25v isn't too bad hahah I got worse results before when I haven't thought of tightening my zipties using pliers.
Well my ASIC is 77% but as I found too high of an ASIC is no good unless you have a really beefy cooler or it will get really hot.
I have a lot of these 480s for mining and I tried different ASIC levels and it seems higher ASIC run hotter and increases in heat output exponentially more agressively with increased voltage while also clocking better with the same voltage increase. But a really low ASIC also takes too much voltage for a small bump in clockspeed so it isn't great either. In other words what I gathered is that if you're on air or something like that an ASIC around 70-80% is best and on more exotic cooling a higher ASIC might let you get higher clocks.
So my 88% ASIC is good? or not so good? As you mentioned, my card tends to run a bit hotter than my last one (I had my Sapphire HD 6950 OC'ed as far as it would go and w/ the fans at 90% it would stay around 70C, "stock" with this card (RX470 Nitro + 8Gb) and my fans at 70% MAX my card gets up to 76-78C at the most, average temps are around 70-75 which is the thermal target from my understanding. I just prefer lower temps than the 70s, which I'm sure I could achieve if I messed with my fan curve.
And oddly enough I went into my Fallout 4 INI and switched the HDR from 0 to 1 (both of them) and now my game runs smoother and I get better framerates. Isn't HDR supposed to REDUCE performance?
Thanks for the help guys, it's very appreciated!
