    RX 480 return of the crashing

    cbaew92

      So my gigabyte RX 480 has been nuked again by after AMD update (17.5). I undervolted my card on the old update but this one came automatically and now my gaming pc wont play any games without crashing entirely. check out this video of overwatch dying because of this card.

      SPECS:

      Mobo:

      GIGABYTE GL-78LMT

      Processor:

      AMD FX_8320 eight core

      GPU:

      Gigabyte RX 480 G1 8gb

      HDD:

      Seagate 1TB Barracuda

      RAM:

      Corsair Vengence 8gb

      PSU:

      Corsair 500w

       

      Is the card just totally fubar or something?

              Managed to get it to work somehow last night.

               

              pulled the card to write down serials for RMA thru gigabyte but plugging it back in may have solved any lose/weak connection to the PCI-E slot?

               

              also even tho mobo was up to date I reflashed it with newest bios, same with gpu. Also reinstalled drivers but used the AMD RX 480 17.5 ones not the gigabyte ones. Finally undervolted card and ran furmark, running at 74'C at 77 fps 2400mhz under 90-100% load. Seems to work fine now. Going to start an RMA through gigabyte anyways and try and get a refund for a gtx 1070.

               

              Hope my solution helps you, hmu if you want my wattman settings.
