Slightest overclock crashes Rx 480

Hey guys,

 

Decided to bite the bullet and buy myself an Rx 480.

 

Having installed it I thought I'd use AMD's new Wattman to try and squeeze an extra performance boost out of it. Turns out any overclock, no matter how slight, brings up massive artifacts along my screen to an eventual crash.

 

In case your wondering how slight? 5mhz+ on the memory or 1% on the gpu will do the trick. Apart from that, been well impressed with it so far!

 

Has anyone else had this issue?

 

Thanks in advance!
