My data:

  • SAPPHIRE Radeon™ RX 5700 XT 8G GDDR6
  • AMD Ryzen™ 5 3600
  • Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac (Last Beta Bios)
  • Fresh Windows and the latest AMD drivers




first of all thanks for the support here. So far I could not enjoy my RX 5700Xt so much. I hope AMD tries to fix the known bugs.

Now my observation and/or my error.

1. refresh rate :

If I set the refresh rate under Windows to 75 HZ, this is not saved after the restart is again at 60 HZ.  This leads to the fact that the whole system feels very backward.

2. but now the main problem:

Sometimes when I start games and then set to 75 Hz in the game, the Wattman crashes in the background. The game continues to run but no data is displayed in the overlay. This in turn leads to the fact that the fan curve does not grip and the card overheats. Probably both problems are linked. This is a big problem and could cause a defect of the graphics card.
