Re: Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system

whiskey-foxtrot answered me this :

Hi - this post really belongs in theGraphics  -or- Drivers & Software forums.

Uninstall Asus' GPUTweak It app, COMPLETELY; if you're using any other application to overclock or alter the settings of your RX 480 card, stop doing it (uninstall them).

Try this: AMD graphics performance (turn up the power limit in Radeon Settings for your GPU).

- Have you changed the fan controls at all or modified any other setting in Radeon Settings/WattMan?

- What power supply do you have right now?

And i answered him back with this :

Hi:

first of all sorry for posting it here my bad and thank you for your answer .

"Uninstall Asus' GPUTweak It app" what is this and how i uninstall it completely?

i didnt installed any program to overlock my graphic card but i think its already overlocked im not sure ,how i can confirm it?

i turned up the limit of power for my gpu to the maximum (50).

Yes i changed the fan speed to 1800 minimum and 3200 to maximum and the objective temperature from 75 to 70.

My power supply is a tacens mars gaming 700 W.

Leave your fans set at automatic. Just change the power limit.

Re: Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system

First of all thank you very much for your anwers,i just reset the wattman setting to default(automatic like you told me ) and chosed the maxmimum power which is 50,i hope it work.

If it works,why this happen? why i cant change the fan speed or other option in wattamn,it makes no sense right?

Thank you.

Re: Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system

Because the automatic function works. I am going to post a previous answer to another question, only because of the screenshots. If you follow that advise > Power Limit and Max temp < and leave everything else alone....run a game with Hardware Monitor running in the background. After quiting the game, check the MAX temperature and MAX fan speed. You will see that Wattman adjusts the fan speed automatically to keep the temperature at/below the designated MAX temp.

Re: Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system

Hi:

I have the HWMONITOR program,my question is ,i  have the max power at 50  which is the maximum but do i keep the max temperature at automatic which is max. 90 and objective 75 or i change it?

And what is exactly hardware  monitor runing? sorry im new on this.

EDIT:im using the pc without playing any game and the fan speed is 700 and the temperature is 69 is this normal? maybe is becouse im from spain and is very hot here.

EDIT2:I just launched a game called overwatch and the fan speed is 1496 and the temperature is 75 (which is the objective temperature ) is notmal ? vcan i low the objective temperature to 60 or i keep it on automatic better?

Thank you.

Re: Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system

I can't post a screenshot, as the forum is broken, but I have a screenshot in that other post...you have to set the max temp to manual and lower it to 75c-80c....set max power limit to +50 and click 'save ' at the top of the page. Don't change anything else.

Re: Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system

NO. Put it like the picture in the other post.

Open Wattman.

Change one setting only:

As pictured.....exactly. Do not change anything else...leave fans speed, etc. at Default (automatic).

Only lower MAX to 80c...leave "Target" at 45c. Done.

Click apply.The fans will become involved when the temp hits 45c and will gradually increase as needed to keep under the 80c Max.

You can also increase the Power Limit to +50. AMD graphics performance
