Unable to change resolution via the "AMD RADEON SETTINGS" software. I've tried finding tutorials on how to switch resolution via amd's software and was un-pleasingly surprised to find that there was a lack of such. After realizing I had to have specific timings for the different resolutions I found the place to insert them (display>custom resolutions>create). After inserting the timings for 1680x1050, at 144 hz, I found that I was then unable to do anything more, there's no button for switching to the resolution, just the “save” alternative which for me turns my display black for a few seconds and reverts to the monitors native resolution. The timings are not incorrect (tried putting in random numbers and was given a specific message that indicated that the timings were off, and this message does not appear when I use the proper timings). I’ve also checked that the H Respective V polarity timing was correct, and also tried the incorrect alternative.

Do you need normal resolution or custom?
To select a normal resolution right click on desktop>Display parameters>Additional display parameters (it is for Win10.In win8.1/win7 it is even easier)
For custom resolution use 16.11.5 driver. In ReLive driver custom resolutions are more complicated. Radeon settings>Preferences>Show additional settings
