    No wonder this problem still present been the same drivers WHQL'ed.

    Staying away from Overdrive (don't enable it!) and using Afterburner as "timings manager" is a possible workaround.

    Clockblocker probably work also.

    Looks like they removed support for the older HD series cards again...

    This must be the driver size difference.

    core clocks still bouncing all over the place, even when crossfire is disabled in games and I'm miles below my fps cap. I'd be better off throwing out over a £1000 pounds of AMD gpu's and a Freesync screen and buying a damn PS4 at the moment.

    With new driver, it is not allowing overclocking in ASUS GPU Tweak I, II or AB to go past 1200 here. The programs show ability to set higher, and actually try to set whatever you put, like here 1225 - but then it just refuses to actually do so and shows default.

    In other words, something has changed with this release to disallow higher. I did not touch any files or configs of the actually OC softwares.

    I just want to play a little bit. I will look more into it later. If it is something on my end, I will say, but at this time I don't think so.

    I saw this behavior with previous driver also.

    My usual OC profile in Afterburner was 1150/1600 but since Crimson/Crimson hotfix applying it revert to base clocks instantly in Afterburner.

    1175/1600 i use now or 1200/1600 works fine.

    Another AMD drivers mistery.

    :3eyes:

    To be sure completely unninstall AB and reinstall it detecting GPU values.

    I don't understand why the drivers take so much time to uninstall/install in my system. It is happening since Crimson.

    I heard that couple of times, no explanation. It takes like 20sec here to uninstall/install, like always did.

    Funny thing is that it has persisted in two fresh Windows 10 TH2 installations.

    Hey PR I'm getting the same issue - are you running bitdefender a/v by any chance?

    I will try it in a bit, sammarbella. Pr: Try disabling Xonar in Device Manager before next install attempt, just to see if anything changes. Just an idea, but doubtful it will do anything.

    I have no resident AV. Defender is disabled via Group Policy. I scan everything by hand using Malwarebytes.

    I disabled the sound card from Device Manager, and I closed Xonar Switch (I'm not using the "normal" ASUS CP). Stays the same.

    This is how it looks in Process Explorer. I wonder what it does with mshtml.dll.

    its along shot but you can never be so sure, try checking if you got any hard drive issues, maybe the instaler is loading in damaged clusters, so thats why you have redundency cycles.

    i like that tool for checking hds, good luck.

    I have no SMART warnings in any drive. Everything installs perfectly except this.

    Yeah, complete reinstall of GPU Tweak II, and extended ranges are useable again. Good deal. Thanks.
