Like a lot of people I'm having trouble with the new AMD Crimson drivers :
My system :
-Sapphire Fury Tri-X with
-I7 4790K
-Asus VII Ranger
-G-Skill TridentX 2400MHz 16GB RAM
-Kingston HyperX Predator 480GB PCI-E SSD

-3 Western Digital harddrives
-Corsair CX750M power Supply
- Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, latest version

 


The problems I am having are :
- FPS drops during gaming (ARMA 3 and Fallout 4)
-The GPU clock not going up to it's maximum clock (1040MHz) , the GPU clock gets stuck around 600MHz
-Random crashes watching videofiles (MKV) on VLC Player : sometimes it just drops out off VLC, most of the times it totally crashed Windows10.
- And at last : not able to remove/delete the new Crimson drivers.

 

I wanted to do a rollback to Catalyst 15.11.1 beta, but I just couldn't get all parts of the Crimson driver removed, so in the end I had to do a full clean install of Windows 10.

 


I've tried changing settings in the AMD Overdrive tab within the Crimson driver, like giving it a energylimit of +10%, turning off shadercache and let Crimson controle all of the settings in game, but nothing seems to work.

 

Now I'm back on Catalyst 15.11.1 beta
