'Default Wattman settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure' - MSI 390x

Hi , I'm getting this error in any game that i play (BF3,BFV, Borderlands 2 , Wow)

Specs:

Asus Maximus X hero

 Intel i7 8700k

MSI 390x

Corsair vengeance 16gb

PC is after clean windows install so i don't think it's driver issue (19.3.3)

I'm using default settings for wattman and msi afterburner

 After couple minutes of playing any game I get this error and black screen right after

Re: 'Default Wattman settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure' - MSI 390x

You could try a really old driver (16.6.1) which does NOT have wattman included!  Wattman came in with 16.6.2.  It's the only way I rid myself of the default settings crash message and black screens.  Worth a try?
