    My GPU stucks at 400 MHz (memory changeable) with 2 monitors activated and at 300/150 with 1 monitor activated

      Hey there,

      when I updated the driver from 17.1.1 to 17.1.2 I noticed my GPU stopped working properly.

       

      My specs:

       

      FX-8320

      Radeon R9 270

      ASrock 970 extreme 4

      some unmodular bequiet PSU with 700W

       

      What I can say at that time when it happened:

      Afterburner was used to overclock some patches and wattman was used recently with 17.1.1

       

      -Once I came to 17.1.2 my GPU stucked at 400 MHz core clock (while memory is adjustable) when both monitors were activated

       

      - Furthermore once I disconnected 1 monitor via Windows, the clocks went to 300/150 MHz (memory wasnt adjustable anymore)

       

      - GPU-Z showed the "normal" clocks (which shouldve been at 1050/1500, while hwmonitor and aida64 showed the actual clocks of either 400/1400 or 300/150

       

      - Whenever I started a game in League of Legends, the core clock went from 400/1400 MHz to 1050/1400 MHz for some seconds and dropped down immediately

       

      - Trying to reset via wattman changed the clock from 400/1400 MHz to 450/1400 MHz for a brief second which decreased back to 400 MHz

       

      - What I noticed is, when I used the GPU benchmark from AIDA64, the GPU surprisingly used all of its 1050/1400 MHz until the benchmark ended, letting the GPU throttle back to 400/1400 MHz

       

      - Also used clockblocked which changed the clocks in paper (even HWMonitor and AIDA64 showed the clocks of 1050/1500) but when trying to play it kept showing the same performance as before when it was throttled back to 400/1400 or 300/150 MHz

       

      - Tried deleting drivers with DDU and going back to 17.1.2 didn't work

       

      - Deleting drivers with DDU and going back to 17.1.1 didn't work aswell

       

      - Eventually deleting drivers with DDU and going back to 16.11.5 also didn't work

       

       

       

      I really would appreciate some help to fix this problem just cause of it being so obnoxious.
