Radeon Crimson ReLive does not allow overclocking

I am having problems ever since the Radeon Crimson ReLive drivers became a thing. Before that, I did not have this issue, but the inclusion of Wattman has prevented me from doing any sort of overclocking of my GPUs and I am considering it as maybe a compatibility problem with older GPUs. I have an R9 380 sitting alongside an R9 285 that run in crossfire. The issue I am having is that if I use Wattman to do any sort of OC, whether its manual clock adjustments or using the slider to go up %, I inevitably end up getting driver crashes and a message saying a system failure caused the Wattman settings to be reset to default. Use of third party OC tools is also a problem. I have always used MSI Afterburner and OC with it does the same thing, an eventual driver crash and Wattman reset. I would hate to have to go back to pre-ReLive editions of Crimson just to OC again and lose all the performance increases the new drivers bring. Note: I am also using the latest 17.1.2 drivers. Does anyone know an effective way of OC with a similar config, using older GPUs and new drivers? I always have that itch to OC.


System config:

Intel Core i5 6600k @ 4.6 GHz

Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 380 2GB + Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 285 2GB
