    AMD Crimson and Sapphire Fury Tri-X : fps drops, random crashes watching video's, GPU clock


      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
