The graphics card, is a amd r9 200. Sitting at idle it is ok when first starting up the system. As soon as I start up simple things like a browser it will ramp up the speed of the fans and run about 36.
If I run a game it will ramp up more and be noticeable two rooms away and run 70ish. This is not how it was in the past it was a lot quieter.
I have pulled the fans on the GPU and redid the heat stuff. All the heatsinks were thoroughly cleaned(I always blew them out every 2 months).

The problem I have is that when I shut everything down and just have the system sitting idle it will keep running fans at a high rate and the GPU is running at 40-50 even after hours of sitting idle.

The CPU is not an issue it runs at the normal speeds and temps(9amd fx-8350) which runs idle at 20 and full game mode around 45.

Any ideas on how to get it to quiet down would be welcomed.

Have you cleaned out the fans? Dust?

Completly taken apart and cleaned with new heat sink put on the fans. Just watching twitch online it runs at 55. When I put it to sleep and wake it up in the mourning it starts at 38.

What are you using to control the fans? Settings get borked somehow?

Nothing for controlling them. I didn't have a problem until a few weeks ago.
