Solution to AMD RX 470, 480, 570, & 580 Crashing
« on: October 04, 2017, 09:09:18 AM »
If you have a Sapphire Nitro+ AMD RX 470 8GB video card like me, and you are getting crashes despite all temperatures appearing normal, it is very likely because the third-party manufacturer failed to specify a stable clockspeed for the GPU.

The default clockspeed, as specified by AMD, is 926mhz. Sapphire overclocked its Nitro+ version to 1260mhz. To fix the problem, I simply reduced the clockspeed by 100mhz across the board, from states 1 through 7.

I previously reduced voltages and fan speed, only to crash time and again at random. The aforementioned solution absolutely works. I confirmed so through my own experimentation.
