I got the same Problem but with a bit different setup.
-- System --
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU: INtel i7-7700K
MOBO: MSI Z270 PC Mate
VIDEO: PowerColor RedDevil RX 480 8 GB
MEM: 16GB DDR4 3200 CL16 CORSAIR KIT
PSU: Nitrox 750W
Nearly every games crashed after some minutes. CPU Temperature looks still good ( 48" ) and i switched the PSU and the error still there.
So I went ahead and did a clean reinstall of Windows 10 and updated it. Then I installed the Crimson ReLive Edition 17.4.4 driver to see if I could go back to the stability I had before. No luck. Then I installed the Crimson Edition 16.11.5 Hotfix HERE and it's a little better. The screen still occasionally flickers gray and hangs for a second like its going to crash, but no crash yet *crosses fingers*.
It looks like I'm stuck with this 6 month old driver because I kinda don't know what else to do. I might try undervolting the card since somebody said that might work but I guess that would require me to reinstall the newer driver to get Wattman. Idk.
If anybody has had this problem and solved it, please let me know.
Yes...delete all third party controllers, MSI, Afterburner, Trixx, Asus....they conflict with Wattman/AMD controls. Before deleting, use the 'return to factory setting' (or whatever) to undo all the changes it's made. RX480 FPS drop in all games
Set Wattman back to factory defaults.
Set your Power Limit to +50 (and click apply at top of page) > AMD graphics performance
Hi kingfish, thanks for your reply.
I've never installed any of those applications, but I went ahead and reset Wattman to factory defaults and set the power limit to 50% and that seems to have fixed the problem!!! (In my version of wattman it only goes from -5 to 5)
I've only played about 20 minutes of Skyrim but I'm not getting any flickering or crashes or anything, it even seems to have solved the microstutter issue I was having in dungeons. I am getting some strange graphical glitches that look like giant spikes coming out of the sides of mountains but I can live with that.
I'll continue to play and report back if everything remains stable.
Thank you so much for your help, kingfish!
Welp, it's back to crashing every minute or so. It was okay for a couple of hours but now it's back to the same old THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER.
i tryed the same but no changes so far
I am going to RMA the card and see if it's a hardware issue.
I've tried everything.
I got my system back from technical service. They discovered the same problem like me before.
The rx480 takes more the 150W from PCIe link and my PSU dosnt support that Thats why my pc always shutdown when under fire
I looks like 150W is standart on an 8PIN GPU and the rx480 dosnt believe in that standart
We replaced the PSU and now it looks normal so far. I will test it at home and hope everything is fine.
So after several days of testing the error is stell there but not so often.
It goes from 5-8 times a evening to 1-2 times a week.
Better but not that what i expected.
The system changes i dit was to replace the PCU from Nitrox 750W to an BeQuite Dark Power Pro 550W.
