R9290X idle memclock or 2D frequency !!

Now i had this problem with the 290X since crimson drivers, the 2D clock being stuck at max speed of 1250MHz.

 

This 290X is driving 3 identical HD monitors since it was first bought at launch.

 

I never had the clockspeed of 2D at idle getting stuck at 1250MHz with old catalyst drivers , NEVER !!!

 

Now some marketeers want us to believe it is normal when using multimonitor setup, which is a frikkin LIE.

 

Proof of this appears when i install the new crimson 17.4.1. Idle 2D clockspeeds come down to 150MHz again. Yes, with the same tripple monitors ...

So please STOP LYING to people if you got no technical knowledge about anything whatsoever.

 

BUT NOW , THE JOKE:   when i shutdown my system and reboot the next day, the frikkin clockspeed at idle stucks back at 1250MHz.....

And THEN, by magic, a driver reinstall with subsequent reboot again brings the idle 2d clockspeeds back to 150MHZ.....

 

DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE TO REINSTALL THE DRIVER EACH FRIKKIN DAY OR WHAT IS GOING ON HERE ?????
