  • My system is the nextone:

          GPU: Sapphire Radeon Nitro Plus RX 480 4GB GDDR5

          Desktop System

          OS: Windows 10 64bit

          Driver Version Installed: 16.300.2311.0

          Display Devices:  AsusVG248QE, using DVI, 1080p at 120hz (i experience flickering at 144hz, it only happens with this graphic card not with my old one that was a GTX 750)

          MOBO: asus z170m-plus

          CPU: i5-6600k

          PSU: Tacens Valeo V 700W
          RAM: Kingston HyperX 2800 DDR4.

          CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 103

 

I must add that i have a fresh install of windows 10 without any previous drivers from any other GPU.

 

  • My issue:

          After installing the drivers i get random crashes saying "Display driver AMD has stopped responding and has recovered", this crashes happen when i roam around the different options of AMD Radeon Settings or           when im browsing on google chrome and also when im playing a game (only tried CS GO and Overwatch so far).

          It looks like when i downclock the GPU with MSI Afterburner Around 1100 Core clock and  1500 Memory Clock i can play a bit but it ends crashing again after 10-20 mins.
