    I have had a "automatic OC" for the GPU in my Radeon control panel for a long time. It also has an undervolt option. It hasn't been that good - system becomes unstable and crashes almost every time I touch an OC on this card - or just runs too hot for the minimal performance increase to be worth it. But maybe I'm just bad at it.

    Undervolting works nice on my 6800. You lose 1% performance for 5-10C temp drop. Good trade for me.

    Undervolt, yes, but not overclock :D

    Same here, ever since I got my 5700XT, the option was there. But as you mentioned, it doesn't actually work. The driver keeps crashing, even though I'm on a custom loop and temps aren't an issue.

    It did "work" at first but was super conservative and only added 20 or so mhz to core and 10 to vram

    I've had absolutely no problem with the OC feature for my 5700xt. Works in all the games I play with no problems at all.
    I've only recently tried the undervolt feature with no problems either.
    Haven't messed with the ram OC feature though.

    But I will say that I replaced all my thermal pads with fujipoly ultra extreme and re-applied thermal paste with thermal grizzly.

    I tried it the other day, not the new one, but the older one on 21.8.2, and it did say "2140mhz core" and something on RAM that I forgot. I clicked "OK" and played some The Ascent for about 10 minutes before the driver crashed and reverted to base settings. So, dunno :p it doesn't really help if I OC myself, either. It'll crash at some point or other no matter what. I haven't managed to get it to sit at any kind of stable OC ever, but again, maybe I just don't care enough.
