Problem :The videocard will not attemp to cool it's self.
Symptoms: As the Card's heat up the fans stay at 30% speed
: Changeing to manual mode in CCC and raiseing the Bar has no effect
: Does detect temps But no fan speed changes

Steps taken: Have uninstalled the drivers and Reinstalled
: Did uninstall in this order
1.Uninstalled drivers from Programs add/remove
2.uninstalled Cards from Devices
3.Restarted and ran Driver sweep
4.Reinstalled CCC with 12.4 Catalyst

Additional steps:
:Has found i can use MSI Afterburner to activate a Fan profile

-Rather not use afterburner for if the program ever fails the cards will go up in smoke durring a game
-And feel better at ease if origonal problem solved

It sounds like you need to call the tech support of the card and open a support ticket so that if they can't fix the issue then you can do a RMA and in order to do one you need a support ticket.
Have you tried different versions of the Catalyst driver to find one that works the fan profile? Sometimes you don't need the newest driver.
