Vega 64 multimonitor HBM2 frequency edit leads to BSOD

Hello!

 

Recently I purchased a Vega 64, everything works fine except one problem.

 

I got 3 monitors connected to my card:

4K - LG 27UD68 - DP

4K - Philips 276e8vjsb - DP

1080p - LG 22MP55 - HDMI

 

System setup:

Latest Windows 10 1903 (Also tried 1607&1809, they all have this issue)

MSI Z170A Krait

i7 6700K

 

If I edit the HBM2 frequency under Wattman, whether it's overclock or underclcok, it will lead to BSOD(Yes, even UC 1Mhz!)

 

I've done some diagnose and under these 3 situations HBM2 frequency edit works

1. Unplug one of the monitor

2. Reduce one of the 4K monitors' resolution to 1080p

3. Roll back to driver 17.X.X (18.X and 19.X all have this issue)

 

Also, if I edit the HBM2 freq under one of the 3 situations then undo it back to native triple monitor setup, it won't cause the system BSOD

 

I believe this is a driver bug, and DDU under safe mode doesn't solve this problem.

 

If anyone has the same problem, sharing your experience will be appreciated!

 

Thanks!
