    I've tried it in the past. I'll give it another shot to see if I have any luck.

    Currently, the only way I can use the card without crashing is to set the Auto Overclock GPU option in Wattman; if I try any other setting (including default) it will crash when running 3D applications after about an hour (19.10.2 after using DDU for removing old drivers). I don't really care for the auto overclock GPU since it sets it at 1991MHz with 1168mv, when the card runs stable at 2030 with 1095mv all day. Hopefully overdriveNtool will work until I get a 2080 super; I just can't deal with AMD's driver problems anymore.

    Edit: Just tried overdriveNtool with the same results. When setting the clocks and voltage, it just locks the clock to ~1650MHz and crashed within 10 minutes in a 3D application. I spent a bit of time messing with MorePowerTool and was able to make it work with 19.10.2, I had to uncheck some of the boxes in the first tab that AMD removed from Wattman in 19.10.2; now it's working as it was before and needing to set the memory to 1200MHz in Wattman to get the memory overclock. Gives some strange readings in GPUz this way, but it's holding the 2030/1200 clocks and 1095mv GPU voltage.

    I just wish AMD would stop screwing over their customer base who enjoy overclocking and fix the driver issues that lead to the problems.
