Hi there,


I've been looking around the forums a little but couldnt really find someone with the same issues as i'm experiencing.


I have an fx-9590 (@4.1ghz due to psu issues) and a Sapphire radeon R9 280x (SAPPHIRE Technology))

The issue im having is that when crimson came out, the card stopped using both its boost clock and "low performance" clock.

now after reinstalling it multiple times and switching back to catalyst (which windows 10 then updated back to crimson ._.)

I'm now having the issue that it does use my boost clock of 1100mhz and 1600mhz on ram.

it nolonger uses its low performance clock of 300mhz and 150mhz.


I've been looking around on google and found that for someone disabling the ULPS in msi afterburner worked (no idea what it is tbh), and it helped for me for a day..

and then showed the same problems as I have now.


I've kinda run out of solutions except either reverting back to catalyst every so few days when windows installed crimson again which isnt ideal...


does one of you guys have an idea?
