R9 380 with Relive 16.12.1 not working with MSI afterburner.

Hello all,

Installed those new drivers.

But now, I can't check values thanks to MSI afterburner like I did before (core clock and memory clock set to 0), and I can't even check GPU temperature. I don't really understand why.

I did not install the streaming part of the new drivers, because I'm not streaming, and don't think that my card has any compatibility.

So now, MSI afterburner is not working anymore, and there is no more radeon programm for checking system/temperature.

What can I do ?

Thanks for answer.

Really? You dont need afterburner you have WATTMAN for that now!

I have an R9 380, and not only doesn't afterburner work for me, Wattman seems to have its memory frequency locked to the minimum value. Manual mode doesn't allow me to adjust any of the memory frequency sliders at all, and automatic just has them set to the minimum. I'm sitting at 150 MHz on bioshock when I should be getting 200 fps at 1080p easily, and BF4 doesn't even run, it freezes as soon as I open the application.

It makes sense that wattman wouldn't allow another program to override its overclocking settings, but this is ridiculous.

I have a similar problem in GPU-Z; it will not recognize overclocked values, but WattMan seems to work as intended.

Yah My GPU-Z tells me the clocks are stock value, but when I click on the sensors tab, it says my memory frequency is 150 mhz, and my gpu frequency is going up to 1050, which is my overclocked value.

I have had a lot of compatibility issues in games with Afterburner the past 1-2 months. It's so bad that I just uninstalled it.

Afterburner has never played nice with Crimson for some users. There are some people, however, who do not seem to have any issues.

Re: R9 380 with Relive 16.12.1 not working with MSI afterburner.

I've had MSI AB 4.20 installed and couldn't access my custom fan presets.  When I updated to Version 4.30 I would get black screen of death.  So this new AMD driver is messing with my fan settings.  I don't use wattman because its exclusive for AMD processor and not I7 intel.  So I going to have to reinstall earlier driver version till AMD stop restricting 3rd party programs.
