The RX 480 8GB Reference (Blower Style) GPU's are pretty much rated as one of the worst GPU's for mining due to their single fan blower-style design. During the winter, these cards were fine, but as temperatures are rising for summer, they are beginning to run very hot.

Many members are still using them and I wanted to start a thread to hopefully gather some information and improvements with how miners are dealing with the design so that other Reference RX 480 users could benefit.
I wanted to see if we could find the optimal settings for the GPU. Lets see your settings/configuration/mods/etc.
