I think I had tried using newer drivers and wattman but it wouldn't let me undervolt the gpu or something weird like that, and touching anything in afterburner would cause it to go into... what do they call it, 2d clocks or something. It was stuck at 300mhz til reboot. It was annoying, this GPU really needs to be undervolted vs stock or it runs much much hotter.
I do hate the auto-boost and other nonsense that is baked into modern GPUs. I have to dance around the boost on my Vegas to run them at max clocks and not way over boost and crash when load the load drops.
