Journeyman III

RX 460 stuck at 300mhz/Random crashes

Recently purchased this card for my system. Looking to play esports games at 60fps 720p and play other HD games at least console level performance.

System Specs:

Windows 10 64bit

A8-5600k 3.6ghz

Powercolor Red Dragon RX 460 2gb

4gb ram

1st problem:

I noticed that my memory clock is stuck at 300mhz while playing games. This gives me low framerates while playing games (dota 2/csgo avg: 40-60fps). I saw videos online they get at least 100fps on this games at max settings 1080p (I only play @ 720p). Tried various fixes I found online like high performance power settings, disable ULPS using MSI afterburner, still same issue. Using the built-in amd overlay and MSI afterburner as monitor BTW.

2nd problem:

I get random crashes now and then while playing games. Screen turns black for a few sec. then comes back to the game (sometimes it completely crashes and windows gives me a blue screen). I searched online and found out that its a common problem for rx 460 and they recommend underclocking the card by 15%. Is it the only way? Why do I need to reduce my GPU performance just for it to be stable? Why cant it run stable on its stock clock settings?

Tried everything I can fixing these issues clean uninstall drivers, reinstalling drivers I even fresh installed my OS just to be sure but still no luck. Hope someone can help me. Tnx in advance.
