WattMan crashing black screen after applying settings?

So I keep tinkering with my settings and I frequently get a black screen crash/bug after applying my Wattman settings... After turning the monitor off/on it will come back up as normal but I have to do this nearly every time.

I have FreeSync turned off and Windows Fast Boot is Off

Whats the issue? any one have this same problem?

20.2.2 btw

Do you have a secondary BIOS or a BIOS switch? I know you flashed your card to XT. I read another member having blackscreen issues after flashing. It could be an unstable oc?

I do have my RX 5700 flashed to XT, yes.


I am still stabilizing my OC but it seems pretty OK at 1.09mV and 2075mhz at the moment....


interesting.

It could just be an unstable oc, especially when undervolting. Other apps can cause it too aside from drivers like Afterburner. You can also try Radeon settings.

I have only been using WattMan through radeon settings since I have heard MSI afterburner is unstable with these cards and drivers..

I see your voltage is at an undervolt of 1.09v. Stock voltage for XT is 1.2v. When i undervolted my XT to see how far it can go at stock clocks, i started at 1.15, 1.1v and so on. At a certain point i had to lower clocks to maintain stability. My goal, tho, maybe different than yours. Mine was to lower my Hot Spot temp to not exceed 90c during load.

EDIT: This is with a bit of an UV - 1.13v. Notice Core Clock is almost 2000MHz and that is at stock. Temp staying lower than 90c while power is under 200W.

That's my goal as well! Trying to keep hot spot down to maintain boost. I am very new to overclocking, never done it before so I am learning as I go literally.


How did you know I was at 1.09v? haha

I edited my earlier post to include a screenshot of temps. If i uv too far, the max boost will be affected. You got to find a balance. The temp, tho, is affected by other variables like ambient, air flow, etc. I got a reference card and i have to maintain 25c ambient.

I'm starting to think I can undervolt it a decent amount while maintaining max boost of 2150mhz. I think that's my next endeavor with the card tomorrow. I been tinkering every day some thing new. I'm trying to find the best balance. I thought by undervolting it to 1.09mV it would decrease heat a lot but it's only dropped down junction hot spot temp 2-3c. So I might as well get the best clocks I can since it's going to hover near and close to 90c any way. Unless I can go 1.05mV and get near 2000mhz which I don't see possible but I haven't tried that yet.

That would be nice. In your other thread i saw CravinR1's FSU graphics score and it is about 100 points higher than a stock reference XT. So, i estimate at 2000 MHz yours will equal a stock XT in performance.

My reference stock boost is 1905MHz. It goes over that with a bit of undervolt. Just undervolt.
