Hi, wondering if yall might be able to help me with this issue i have. 1st off: system specs: amd fx 8320 @ 4.1 ghz, 8gb ddr3 ram, corsair force ls ssd, gigabyte r9 280 (not x) OC edition. Driver version: 16.12.2  The problem i'm having is when playing games, the card will not go over 950 mhz. i have it overclocked to 1100mhz core 1400 mem +20 power limit in afterburner. i have reinstalled the driver 3 times to no avail. oddly, when i run valley benchmark it does go to 1100mhz, but in all my games it is locked at 950. never had this problem before, any help would be appreciated
