Have you tried downloading the stock bios for your card from Techpowerup?
I did not, I've not had any issues with OC until few months ago, my card has pretty low stock voltage of 1054mV and it overclocks well but AMD drivers are a mess since December although even before that it wasn't exactly smooth sailing, I game at 4K so I needed that extra juice. I've been using AMD's only cards since R9 280X and it was alright but Vega 64 and now Radeon VII have been testing my patience quite a bit and I am considering buying RTX3080 when it comes out but the rumours of it having only 10GB of memory are a little off putting

My Edge core temperature is around 50C that is definitely not a problem. I have downloaded the More Power Tool, extracted the bios with GPU-Z and opened it with MPT, I changed few things in it and then pressed Write SPPT, restarted my PC and now my stock clock is "2000Mhz" and average clock is around 1960Mhz I will be happy with this for now but I'm not sure I will be buying AMD GPU next time since this has been going on for months and they either unable or unwilling to fix this

As soon as I touch the clock speed it won't go past 1650Mhz but usually it sits at 1590Mhz, at stock I get about 1760Mhz. I am so annoyed its beyond believe, this card cost me £850 with the block and the back plate and I've had nothing but issues with it. I had it running at 2000Mhz before and I cant even remember when exactly it stopped working, I have tried 5 different driver versions, send bug reports to AMD and nothing. I wish I sold it months ago and got 2080 Super instead. Has anyone here play with the more power tool and the Red Bios Editor? I had a look around and it seems like editing the bios and making the card run with higher clocks at "stock" settings is the best walk around of this issue but I don't want to start editing anything and bricking the card so I thought I would here if anyone has done it?

Jesaul You need morepowertool. Or try to set fan speed to 100% in the AMD Radeon Software

I had to use 100% fan speed before also. I just tried right now and it's working fine. 1950/1.1v + 20% power, left fan at default.

I tried again and you lose OC when you increase the power limit beyond 20%.

Should I revert back to the old drivers or is there something that I'm missing?
