  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

GPU fans not spinning - 5700XT

Just installed Pop!_OS for the first time. I have a PowerColor 5700XT. At idle or when I game (with either Steam or Lutris), the GPU fans don't turn on. They'll stay off until the system crashes from overheating. Dual boot Windows 10 on the same PC and don't have this issue - fans work as normal. Also even in the motherboard bios , GPU fans will spin at low rpm like they would on Windows 10. It is just when I load into Pop! that the fans turn off and stay off.

Strange issue because I would think that the GPU bios would default to the default fan curve unless it is being controlled by software. I did a search but couldn't find anyone with this same issue. Any thoughts on potential fixes?

Installed a newer kernel but still having the issue. I did notice while installing the kernel that it said this in the terminal: “W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/amdgpu/navi12_asd.bin for module amdgpu“. Any other thoughts on next steps?

As an update, fixed the issue with a clean install of the OS. Fans are now working as expected. But I now can't set my refresh rate to 120 hz to match my monitor (stuck at 60 hz now). Would appreciate if anyone has thoughts on a fix for that.
