ClockBlocker is a GPU power-management control software designed for AMD graphics cards. It started as a tool entirely designed for the Radeon R9 Fury series, yet many people have had success with the tool on a whole slew of different graphics hardware. While there may be other tools that already work on your hardware to stop downclocking, this is potentially another option available to you. Want to read a bit more?

In the short term I've produced a workaround, which is posted about starting from here: here. 1.0 -- tested on LGS 8.x (does not support older versions) 1.1 -- tested on LGS 8.x and 5.x ** Please keep in mind that 1.1 is functionally the same and differs only in the injection method. If your hardware works with the latest LGS, then 1.0 may be best for you. self extracting 7zip LGS Hook 1.0.exe -- via proxy-DLL injector LGS Hook 1.1.exe -- via external injector (launcher) sha1 hash: 35d4ad976023ec9556c9e3b813fd7a200687788a /Archive/Logitech Gaming Software/LGS Hook 1.0.exe 200957799a296df7849a1579fc72ee8e5bcb52b3 /Archive/Logitech Gaming Software/LGS Hook 1.1.exe The jist: ^ This bug has been reported to Logitech, so presumably in later versions of their software it may be properly fixed and the workaround no longer needed.

It is probably useful for far more purposes than screen-corruption though. While this has been tested now by many more people, I definitely would like to continue hearing if you have success or issues with ClockBlocker on your rigs. I'm also of course open to suggestions on the ClockBlocker UI or any other aspects of it. All that out of the way, brief section from the link: --I will of course respond on these forums, and to PM's on Guru3D. You do not need to register on our site. Knowing that the software is working: -The 'easiest' way to test if the tool works at all. Is to after installation edit the "DEFAULT" rule to "Block", instead of "Downclock". If everything is working right, at this point your Graphics Card would clock itself up to the maximum frequency (0% load, at idle on the Windows desktop). -I would suggest trying to do this before playing around with profiles for a starting point. Otherwise there's going to be alot of potential questions on if programs are properly being detected, the profile you've defined is actually working & detecting game processes, etc. -As long as you're in Windowed Mode, you can see whether or not ClockBlocker thinks it should be attempting to block downclocking by looking at the System-Tray Icon. If the program's icon is YELLOW, then blocking is not being applied. If it's RED, your profile has correctly identified the application. -A green tray-icon indicates upclock blocking. -Currently you'll need to use another utility, such as MSI-Afterburner, TriXX, or GPU-Z to see if your clock speeds are actually being increased. (do not take my software's tray-icon as truthful until you've verified my tool works on your system) **I will likely add AMD ADL to some future release to make this easier. Recent: New builds from 1.1 onward execute as multiple processes. If ClockBlocker's helper-container crashes, ClockBlocker will attempt to re-launch it as soon as an error message is OK'd. This may result in a chain of error messages if ClockBlocker is set to "block". ----If that happens, close ClockBlocker or disable Blocking before accepting the error prompt(s). You can either re-download the software from here, get it via a 7zip self extractor, or use the built in Software Update function (based on the installer). [Right Click on the Tray-Icon, Misc > Software Update] Prior installers are still available from here, for if the new version doesn't work for you and the older versions did. Confused on the rule system's advanced features? Here's a putting the recent new features together example: -This may give you an idea of how you'd use all these things with the direction the software is going. Code: =============================================================== Settings > General =============================================================== Start With Windows = TRUE Check for Updates on Startup = FALSE Always Ontop = TRUE Show Splash = FALSE Exclude ScreenSavers (fullscreen & 3D detection) = TRUE Disable Editor Confirmation = TRUE Window Fade Speed = FAST Blocking Method = ADL =============================================================== Settings > Rules =============================================================== [Executable] | [Action] | [Priority] | [Enabled] ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ | ++++++++++ | +++++++++ "*.scr" | "[ADL] Force-Downclock" | "100" | "YES" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4\Fallout4.exe" | "Block" | "50" | "YES" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" | "[ADL] Force-Downclock if in the foreground" | "0" | "YES" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" | "[ADL] Force-Downclock if in the foreground" | "0" | "YES" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\*" | "Block if in the foreground" | "0" | "YES" "FULLSCREEN_PROGRAM" | "Block" | "0" | "YES" "3D_PROGRAM" | "Block" | "0" | "NO" "DEFAULT" | "Downclock" | "0" | "YES" And worded out what those rules all accomplish: -force downclocking if a screensaver is running. (priority example) -block downclocking if Fallout 4 is running in the foreground or the background, as long as a screensaver isn't running. -force downclocking if we're working in Visual Studio or browsing the web in Firefox, as long as Fallout 4 isn't running. -block downclocking if we're in any Steam game (windowed mode or fullscreen w/ current focus), as long as a screensaver isn't running. -and finally raise the clocks if any fullscreen program has focus (non Steam), with the same constraints as above on screensavers. There may be more cool things you can do such as with media-players or anything else to tame your card and tailor it to your usage, but hopefully this gives some ideas. -Also note that you do not have to have ADL set as the method to use "[ADL]" rule types. These will always use ADL regardless your selection. Let's find a way to get the most out of our cards. Cheers!
