GPU fans not running

60C is not hot at all, as a matter of fact that's a great temp to be hovering around if you're gaming. Cause for concern is if you are regularly pinning the GPU at above 80C for long periods of time. You can use something like MSI afterburner to log your temps and you can see how hot it gets during gaming and see how the fans kick on while that happens. Powercolor is a known brand. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Your GPU will get warm to the touch. During performance overclocking runs, It can even gets too hot to touch (can even burn you!). This is normal. You don't pump 200-300W through something and it not get warm.

I understand that some GPU these days are designed not to run fans when not hot....but given i have never heard of the brand powercolor for graphic cards, and given my first Custom built PC... i am Worried that there is something wrong.

Powercolor RedDevil RX580 8 GB. 

Ran blender for an hour, followed by Need For Speed Rivals for 2 hours.

after turning all that off, i didnt see the fans spinning on the GPU spinning. oppened case to see if it hot, the back plate of the GPU was little warm.

any advice?

Powercolor is a known brand. Have you checked the temps with any program? The back plate would probably be burning hot if the card had problems with cooling.

60 isn't hot at all. My Asus GTX 960 Turbo OC with a blower style cooler runs at 80°C

60 degrees C is not that hot at all, many gpu's are designed to run up to 90ish C which is not recommended but 60 C is nowhere near an issue, if you have an issue with the fans not spinning at all times, then you can probably disable the feature somewhere
