290 should not be stuttering and screwing up playing HL2ish games.

Actually, I had this problem with Fallout 3. The GPU was only being taxed like 15-20% so it would keep dropping to idle clocks and causing the game to stutter like crazy. I had to use RadeonPro at the time to force 3D clocks in the game all the time to fix it.

Yep, I would be monitoring the gpu clock speeds to make sure it is working at full speed. If you are using msi afterburner switch to asus gpu tweak, it helped with this very issue when I had a gigabyte windforce r9 290. I hated that card so much.

Uninstalled MSI afterburner, game still stutters, Asus GPUTweak installed, same BS. how can i force my 3d clocks in RadeonPro? I see something at the overdrive tab, but even when i unlock the tab, everything is still not accessible...

Is this info of GPUTweak any useful?, see my GPU clock jumping up and down....

Enabled overdrive, GPU clock constantly at maximum, still stuttering

When you say "enabled Overdrive" are you talking about AMD Overdrive?

So, the gpu spikes that Im seeing (100%) is that when computer is idle? If so, it really shouldnt spike to 100%. I really think your card needs to be RMA'ed.

I fight an RMA like you wouldnt believe but sometimes its the only option. I had to send my Sapphire 290 back. And I spent a lot of time trying to fix it. But its was such a relief when I got the new one in and everything worked perfectly out of the box. Lets put it this way, HL2 should run butter smooth with no stutter at all. That game is not gpu intensive for current gen cards. Have you run any of the gpu testing software like Unigine's Valley? If not, you should download that and let it run on a loop, back to back, and see what happens.

Also, I couldnt help but notice that you had RadeonPro open. What were you using that for? I ask because it has a lot of specific settings that, if set incorrectly, can cause problems.

The Image uploaded was taken right after i closed a little gameplay of HL2. RadeonPro was used for overdrive only did not tinker with any other settings, but it didn't work. Downloading Unigine's Valley and now will run it asap.

My two cents:

~Your motherboard is pretty low end, and can't handle that kind of voltage. Reset to stock and see if your games still dip.
~If that doesn't help, your gpu is defective

Don't think my motherboard is low end, Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 with high end components, already running at stock speeds again, no overclocking since i noticed the auto RAM overclock gave me BSOD, CPU is running at stock as well.

Did an Unigine's Valley which stuttered also, HL2 LC test, same thing, time to RMA the card?

(btw its not like stuttering constantly, fps drops for a sec, then ok for a couple of seconds, then stutters again, then ok for a few secs, and on and on....)

I still think the card more than likely is bad, but please try this: remove all peripherals, including WLAN card, and try Valley again.
