Reviving this thread because this is the best advice I've found so far for my situation. I own an MSI 5600XT GAMING X with the default clock at 1745mhz, I first tried underclocking to 1730mhz like someone suggested and that at least significantly delayed crashes on Overwatch, further underclocked to 1720mhz and I haven't crashed since. I'll keep testing to find a good sweet spot and update this thread w/ results, but thanks so much for posting this! One other piece of advice is DO NOT use the piece of **bleep** that is MSI Dragon Center, that **bleep** made me crash on startup even in Overwatch.
Specs for anyone curious:
Ryzen 5 3600
G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3600 CL16 2x8GB
ASRock B550M Steel Legend
Addlink S70 1TB m.2 nvme SSD
psu - corsair cx550m case - fractal design mini C
windows 10 pro v 2004? or whatever the most recent patch is as of 11/30/2020
Hey guys, I've got a 5600 xt gygabite and i randomly get crashes, i've tried to manually set the fan speed, and that worked for a while, but this week i installed mafia and it crashed with less than an hour, also borderlands 3 was crashing after a couple of hours.
At the beginning, i was having lots of trouble, but the fan speed fixed it, since i'm having this again, i updated to the latest driver and will underclock it to see what happens.
If anyone figures something out, please share!
Same here with a rx 5600 xt d3, at the very beginning (yesterday) with this solution i played all day RUST, then at 00:54 start crashing again, i tryied the same but not worked anymore, now i reading the comments and trying the other freqs. I'll come back if i find a solution. AMD PLEASE ITS 2021 FIX THIS!!!
Nope, my rx 5600 xt keeps crashing with every game, honestly it's so frustrating, i've tried every single solution i found on internet, this solution worked for me but just a few hours, then the gpu crashed again and again, and if i try the same, it's just don't work anymore the fix, i live in Argentina bro, everything is expensive, I literally stop eating just for buying this graphic card in december 2020 and now in january 2021 i barely could afford the food with my credit card, but i was happy... I was happy, I thought that for the first time in my life I had beaten taxes (the tax that came in January 2021 of 15% on electronic devices in Argentina, already having two taxes that affects my purchases, one of 30 % and another 35%, then it would be 80%) if i buy something that in USA cost 1000 dolars, well in where i am, i have to pay 1800 dolars, I feel so depressed and frustrated, I dreamed all my life of being able to buy a gamer computer, i'm from Venezuela, i am Venezuelan, i came here (Argentina) lookinf for a better life, trying to save money to move to Canada, a few weeks ago I achieved my dream of having a gamer pc and it turns out that I can not play absolutely NOTHING, ANYTHING, 0, ZERO, NADA without my pc rebooting, I spent on this video card about 441 dollars, and bought it at a discount, MORE I will NEVER buy an amd GPU again.
I have had the same the issues since I bought the card in april and it has been driving me insane! Honestly I was so mad at MSI and AMD for wasting my near $500CDN on something that crashed when playing a 10 y/o game (CS:GO).
Corsair CX650M PSU
MSI X570-A PRO MOBO
Ryzen 5 3600X

Corsair MP600 1TB Gen4 NVME
MSI Radeon 5600 XT MECH OC
Running Windows 10.
I ran the latest Adrenalin leaving all setting to automatic except the fan tuning, I just cranked those babies up to full blast because I thought the card was overheating
Constant random crashes, sometimes VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE sometimes just black screens with audio for a few seconds, then reset with Radeon Wattman freaking out. CS GO, Valorant, Far Cry, GTA V would crash a lot. Sometimes I could play for hours, other times it would crash in 15 minutes. Sometimes it would crash watching youtube videos on two screens in 1080P.
Finally stumbled on your post a few days ago and thus far it's working perfectly! No crashes and the fans are much quieter on my machine too. There's a bit of an FPS dip but all the games I play are at least 100FPS still anyway with FreeSync so it's all good.
I looked into the specs for my card and it says the max clock speed is 1620MHz, but the default wattman had it clocked up to 1760MHz or higher! The default overclock was crashing the card, which is insane to me - I'm fairly computer savvy and this took me 8 months to find and fix because I didn't want to mess with the OC settings I just wanted it to work! I'll report back in a week or so to see if it's still working.
It's been better and more stable but I am so heartbroken and angry at AMD to say it's crashed again - in a 15 year old game (CS:GO).
THEN because Wattman thinks it's so smart it reset my profile, which I obviously didn't change to the "factory settings" that are not factory default before rushing to my match, then it crashed AGAIN because it was over clocked. I'm so fed up with this, my old **bleep**ty HD5750 didn't crash, it only got around 60 fps but it worked.
I'm here to just say it's 02/04/2021 I have installed latest driver for 5600 XT and there are still crashes. Once or twice a day in different games. Reinstalling Windows, drivers with or without Adrenalin and nothing... still crashes. Black screen and error that just saying: "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." Probably I will try this underclocking advice but it's really unfair that we have to waste so much time and dig so deep to get through this. I'm so tired about this. I swear if this will not be resolved soon then this was the last thing I've bought from them. AMD Please do something or make some statement about 5600 XT!
yeah definitely try the underclocking technique - while I've still had one crash since implementing the fix, it's much better than it was, by a lot.
