I have Alphacool, the temps are "under water" with fans on full speed.
Ok. Something is wrong. What is your water temperature after 3 minutes?
I get 40 on core, 102 on hot spot and 32 on water in 3dmark stress test at 2100MHz, 1100 memory +99%/

Anybody had similar problems? It is a XFX's model.

I'm reverting back to 20.7.2. It's more stable compared to 20.8

My card however cannot be overclocked - its not stable whatsoever.

skline00 adi6293, as you can see I also have an EK watercooled Rad VII in my 3900X rig (specs below).

Frankly I keep it stock. I just like that it runs so cool.

Let's face it, the RAD VII was not built as a gamer card primarily. Was morphed from the AMD content creator line to fill in the top gap for AMD until the 5700XT came out.

I bought one because I wanted an ALL AMD rig. I already owned a GTX1080TI and was in the process of getting a GTX2080TI so I knew or "hoped" the RADVII would be more competitive than the crossfire 480s that I previously had.

I'm not a bench mark expert but the RAD VII matches blows with the 1080TI in gaming but trails the GTX2080TI.

If you move over to content creation and the software supports it, the RAD VII is stellar.

Funny thing is that I just picked up an AMD 5600XT to go along with a 2700x on a X470mb with 16G of DDR4-3200 Flare-X ram and guess what? At 1920x 1080 it runs like a champ.

I keep my RAD VII stock and it runs solid. Sounds like heresay on this forum but it is what it is.

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?
