So far my RX480 has been a nightmare since day 1

  1. Cannot run at 144hz in game or on desktop. We get lots of flickering. I have read to turn it to 120hz and yes that does work but I want to run my system at 144 that is why I purchased the parts that I did.
  2. Mouse pointer turns into 5 horizontal dashes have to restart entire system.
  3. Sometimes when launching CS:GO the the system will loose connection to the display (acts like cable is not connected). Then I will blindly open console in game and type exit to close the game and once it is closed the connection will re establish.

This is ridiculous the first 2 issues I have found a lot people with them. The third I can not find anything. AMD just keeps on saying they are fixing next update and its the same exact thing the next update.
