XFX DD R9 280 3GB

Ryzen7 1700

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-2666 (Running at 2400)

AsRock X370 Killer SLi/AC

Hisense 40" TV 1920x1080 60Hz (HDMI direct from GPU)

Windows 10 Pro x64 build 15063.332

AMD Radeon Relive 17.6.2

EVGA 750B2 750W PSU


My XFX R9 280 is getting stuck at UVD clocks (501-827MHz) at almost all times. a driver reset generally solves it for a short time, but it will even trigger during games, which should force it to go into performance mode. It even ignores my fully stable 1120Mhz/1425Mhz OC settings in both Overdrive and Afterburner.


Adjusting settings in games while in this state also fails to net any gain in FPS, even when going from max settings to minimum. IE, CS:GO Medium preset 90 FPS. Minimum everything except resolution? 95 FPS


Things I've tried:

Disable HW Accel - no help

Driver reinstall/rollback - Tried 3 different versions, no luck

DDU with newest driver - still doing it


Does anyone have any suggestions?
