overclocking mobile GPUs

Hey everyone,

 

I should start by saying I have an Alienware 15 R2 with an R9 M395x/M390x and Crimson drivers 16.6.1

Performance is really good. I was wondering if there was any way I could overclock the GPU? I've tried afterburner and many other OC applications and the only one that has worked is Sapphire Trixx.

Normal clocks are 723/1250 and I was able to OC to 800/1500. These clocks are stable and provide a nice boost in performance. However, as soon as I exit out of the game I'm playing (this happens to be DOOM for the foreseeable future) I get a BSOD and the file that causes this is "atikmdag.sys"

I know the clocks are stable and temps are sitting between 69C-71C. I think having "un" official OC support for your mobile GPUs would allow boosted animals such as myself to play around with OC to get the best possible performance without having to fear BSODs when you exit the game.

I'm hoping for the best because AMD is known for allowing OC Hopefully this will be the case soon!

 

And if it matters here are my specs:

Intel i7 6820HK @ 4.0GHz

8GB DDR4 Ram

Said GPU

120GB m.2 SSD

1TB disk for my games
