RX 5700 XT max VRAM clock speed during idle with 144 Hz display

Dear members,

 

I am happily using an RX 5700 XT since last december together with an AOC C24G1 display. Whenever I put the display on 144 Hz, the VRAM clock speed stays at 1750 MHz in idle, resulting in temps around 60 degrees (instead of 45) and more power usage.

 

Offcourse I have red a lot about this. I changed some settings in CRU, according to this nice overview: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/dr5bxt/i_solved_my_max_memory_clocks_at_144hz_problem/ 

However, some settings work, but all text does get blurry, and in some other cases I get a black screen even after reboot, which makes me force to enter safe mode. Because of this, I am not very keen to edit all sorts of things in CRU anymore. I don't think that will be a durable fix.

 

Isn't there any legitimate fix for this? It is very unnecessary that this card gets so warm in idle and uses more power. Will AMD bring an update at some point?

 

Thank you.
