Hi Everyone, first, English is not my native language, so you may encounter some grammatical errors.
As a long AMD user, and after a long wait for the new CPU's, i got really excited and build a new AMD based system. (just for curiosity, i had a Phenom II X4 965 and a HD 7850).
But the excitement stopped as soon as i tried to play some games.
Now, i want to clarify that i am into computers since i was a teenager, and i never had to write on forums before.
The problem is that every game i try to play, crash within some minutes:
- Hellblade kept crashing every 2 minutes until i downclocked from 1411mhz to 1257mhz (this isn't the way to make things work).
- Fifa 18 crash almost instantly giving me a dx error.
- PUBG simply gives me black screens, forcing me to reboot the pc via the reset button.
The first time i ran into these issue i was running a fresh genuine build 1703 of windows with the latest 17.10.2 crimson driver (wattman never enabled).
So, i tried every solution i found on the web like i always do:
- I tried to use DDU in safe mode.
- tried to Install older version of Crimson drivers.
- Updated Windows to 1709 fall update
- Ran some integrity checks in the windows console.
- tried to uninstall and reinstall 3 different version of crimson drivers with the new 1709 windows update on.
- Disabled Xbox DVR and Windows Game mode.
- tried to install only essential driver with no control center.
- tried to set +50% power on wattman.
- tried to use AMD driver uninstaller in combination with DDU.
- tried to install AMD chipset driver.
and I'm getting the same errors over and over, it seems like i'm doing nothing.
So, I'm seeing that AMD did not really give a real solution to this problem that is spreading on various forums for almost a year.
And I'm getting really upset, i got my new system a week ago, and i didn't have the time to play decently for more than an hour.
It has just been a week of tries and troubleshooting.
My system spec right now:
Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 4GB
I really hope to get some help from you guys, or from AMD, as right now i am totally unable to play my favourite games.

We have updated the title of this discussion with relevant details to better describe your issue.
If i add TdrLimit = 0 on the "regedit", instead of giving me a crash error, my system locks up and i have to force reboot the pc via the reset button.
I tried to clear CMOS but had no positive results.
I tried to play around with page files setting but without improvements.
Battlefield 1 added to the list of crashing games.
Now, sometimes the games crashes with the classic "app stopped working", and sometimes with an DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_RESET, or HUNG, or REMOVED (pretty randomly).
Based off your posts, i wonder if your issue is related to either A) A faulty PSU or B) A faulty graphics card.
Try setting the GPU Power Limit to +50% and click Apply in Wattman and see if that helps.
Hi amdmatt, as i wrote on the first post, i already tried to set power limit to 50%, but it didn't nothing.
Anyway, i managed to do a clean installation of Win 10 build 1709 and now it seems to work, i got only one error from every game at the firsts minutes, but now they are gone and it seems to run ok.
But i noticed that in BF1 dx11 performance are noticeably faster and smoother, dx12 stutters a lot.
Hi amdmatti For the first 3-4 days i was able to play almost at any games, though some bf1 features didn't work, like the single player campaign, who showed me a DX error, but then problems reappeared.
Now i got a black screen for a few seconds while i'm playing, the monitor shows "no signal", and then reappears, but the game has crashed.
I am also working on the unreal engine, and it does the same thing, i'm getting really annoyed, i had various amd computers before, and got almost 0 crash.
This rx 580 is a nightmare.
I tried to updated the drivers to the latest ones, but no improvements (maybe some more problems).
I am 99% sure that it is 1) a BIOS problem. 2) a driver problem.
Finally i had the chance to install a rx 580 with 8gb of vram.
I reinstalled windows, drivers... aaaand... i have the same issues.
