Help! I was tweaking with the Radeon Adrenalin driver settings to adjust the fan speed as temp of GPU rises. I had to as I was getting a max of 94C when running high load games like Ark,Battlefield V,and others (Im sure others are noticing high thermals with the RX 5700 XT as well -_-). After adjusting the fan speeds I did not peak over 74C which was great! I was able to run BFV (which was updated yesterday as well) and it ran fine and other high load games ran great with no issues as well but when I tried to run BFV later in the day I got BSOD, and it had a atikmdag.sys error at the bottom. Upon forced reboot, I got a notification that my Radeon fan settings failed and went back to default due to system fail but the game would still crash and go into the desktop on first launch, and upon 2nd launch I get the BSOD atikmdag.sys error again. I honestly do not believe that it is a problem with the fans adjusting cause I was able to play it for a good amount of time earlier in the day. Also upon trying to launch with the default driver settings it still would not launch. I'm going to try and clear the "origin" cache and maybe reinstall the Adrenalin drivers later today but I honestly think it has to do with the games most recent update. Please someone reach out to me if your seeing similar issues. Thanks!
