Main point for me was the crossfire profile for XCOM 2 which has enabled buttery smooth 4K gaming for me now. Happy.

I could send one to AMD though but they'll probably give me some binned response about how Afterburner is the problem even though it was the solution.

You probably should, make it clear that afterburner was the solution to your problem not the problem. And rather driver profiles weren't properly being engaged by the drivers.

I filed a ticket with XFX since I thought my card was on the brink of death and it's still under warranty. XFX support is pants on head retarded though and the agent literally ignored all the information in my ticket so after several back and forth emails to get to where we would have been had he read my ticket I just let it be once Afterburner solved the issue.

I could send one to AMD though but they'll probably give me some binned response about how Afterburner is the problem even though it was the solution.

With or without actual fan fixes?


That was fixed in the 15.11.1 just a FYI. If it's still happening to your card you should have filed a bug report. You did file a bug report right?

I have the drivers released before this set and I had to install Afterburner because the automatic fan settings were fucking up my video card even though AMD released a hot fix which supposedly addressed the issue in a previous version.
