Hi everyone, please support me for my first ever post on this forum.

I am running a PC rig with these main components:

_Mobo: ASUS Z87 Pro.

_CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K @ stock.

_RAM: 32gb DDR3 Corsair Vengeance.

_GPU: XFX R9 390X.

_OS: Windows 10 Pro Fall Creator Redstone 3 Version 1709.

_FPS monitoring software : AIDA 64 Engineer 5.92.4300 + RTSS 6.6.0.

_Game : Mirror's Edge Catalyst (Hyper graphics level, 1.00x Oversampling).


I do change Global Wattman settings to Dynamic frequency & Manual voltage control for underpowering my GPU. When I was running 17.7.2 on my PC, in-game temp rarely reaches 80 Celcius, most of the time remains 75~76 Celcius.


As soon as I uninstalled the 17.7.2 (Control Panel method) and updated to 17.11.1, underpowering settings remain unchanged, in-game temp jump all the way to 84~85 Celcius. I have to DDU everything and switch back to 17.7.2.


Please look into this issue ASAP, AMD staff, or the upcoming WHQL driver will be disgusting. A DxDiag file of my rig has been attached in this post.
