Since that initial article, I've become a fan of AMD's "Chill" feature. Game support has largely been solved, and it's another step toward only using the GPU power you need. My monitor's 48-144Hz FreeSync range certainly allows Chill to do its thing without me noticing, but may not be as fantastic on monitors with tighter ranges (ie 40-75Hz)
Not gloating at all! I may be attempting to memorize that guide as we, uh, type.
I myself am gaming at 60hz, so I might try to just set the framerate control to that and see how bad the fans get. Chill seems interesting, may have to muck with that as well.
I love PC gaming; the experimentation is half the fun!
