Describe your system:

  • Sapphire RX580 Nitro+
  • Windows 10
  • 18.1.1
  • Asus VX279
  • Asus Sabertooth 990FX latest Bios (1604)


  • BeQuiet DarkPower Pro 650W
  • 8GB GSkill RAM


Describe your issue:


After a game or video (like Netflix, Youtube ... ) or sometimes even while using Firefox, the core clock wont go down to its lowest state but will remain in high performance mode (1430MHz). Restarting the driver (Win+CTRL+Shift+B or with CRU) wont fix this, only a complete reboot will do.


I´ve set a custom resolution in Radeon Settings (almost wrote CCC ) with a custom refresh rate (OC the monitor).
