    Possible reason for "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to unexpected system failure"

      RAM: 16GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz

      HDD: 1TB SAMSUNG

      SSD: 120GB SANDISK

      MOBO: GA H97M-GAMING 3

      CPU Cooler: CORSAIR H100I

      PSU: EVGA 650W 80+ GOLD

      CPU: i5 4690k

      GPU: ASUS ROG RX 480 STRIX 8GB

       

      So as me, some people are experiencing this during their gameplay. On my porsuit to find a fix, here's what I've found. Memory clock with the latest driver (I've been having this issue apparently with all the drivers above 16.5, however, I've only tested 16.6, 16.11.5, 16.12.1 and 16.12.2) isn't stable, no matter what memory settings I'm using on Wattman.

       

       

      When pushing hard the hardware, the screen freezes for 1~2 seconds, dims for 1~3 seconds and I get the message on the title. However, it's not happening on 16.5.

       

       

      Is this a driver issue? Is there a fix? Is AMD looking at it? Should I RMA?
