Hey subs,

We're giving you an opportunity to start reporting some of your AMD-related technical issues right here on /r/AMD! Below is a guide that you should follow to make the whole process run smoothly. Post your issues directly into this thread as replies. All other tech support posts will still be removed, per the rules; this is the only exception.


Bad Example (don't do this)

bf1 crashes wtf amd


Good Example (please do this)

Skyrim: Free Sync and V Sync causes flickering during low frame rates, and generally lower frame rates observed (about 10-30% drop dependant on system) when Free Sync is on

System Configuration:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z97 Gaming GT
CPU: Intel i5 4790
Memory: 16GB GDDR5
GPU: ASUS R9 Fury X
VBIOS: 115-C8800100-101 How do I find this?
Driver: Crimson 16.10.3
OS: Windows 10 x64 (1511.10586) How do I find this?

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install necessary driver, GPU and medium-end CPU
2. Enable Free Sync
3. Set Options to Ultra and 1920 x 1080 resolution
4. Launch game and move to an outdoor location
5. Indoor locations in the game will not reproduce, since they generally give better performance
6. Observe flickering and general performance drop

Expected Behavior:

Game runs smoothly with good performance with no visible issues

Actual Behavior:

Frame rate drops low causing low performance, flickering observed during low frame rates

Additional Observations:

Threads with related issue:

Skyrim has forced double buffered V Sync and can only be disabled with the .ini files
To Disable V Sync: C:\Users"User"\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\Skyrimprefs.ini and edit iVSyncPresentInterval=1 to 0
1440p has improved frame rate, anything lower than 1080p will lock FPS with V Sync on
Able to reproduce on i7 6700K and i5 3670K system, Sapphire RX 480, Reference RX 480, and Reference Fiji Nano


Remember, folks: AMD reads what we post here, even if they don't comment about it.

I thought I'd do a log and some advices on what I learned when installing the morpheus as I've gathered the information from 3 other posts and mindblank's video.

I had to get a new case (Meshify c mini) as obviously a 4slot card won't fit there.

What I ordered:

  • gelid gpu 4pin to two normal 4pin fan adapter (amazon)
  • x2 Noctua f12 chromax fans
  • mx-4 non conductive paste

. . . . . .

  • 1- Remove all screws from the backplate. (2 types of screws[bracket x4 and backplate]) they are different, the bigger ones are for backplate+io shield. just watch mindblanks video

  • 2- clean the bastard https://i.imgur.com/FJDKcRR.jpg

  • 3- now at this point I thought I killed the card because the thermal paste was rock hard and was a pain to clean, after I got it all off, I noticed this spot on the gpu die https://i.imgur.com/Fn6PG64.jpg

I thought, well, I fucked up.

  • 4- I put the vrm tape,heatsinks as per mindblank video

now, I read that some people were cautious about the heatsinks falling off the card and shorting something. They are coated, so no shorting, the tape holds the heatsinks well, so well that I can almost lift the card by lifting one small heatsink.

  • 5- I wanted to get the backplate attached with nuts, but I couldn't get 2.5m nuts from the hardware store so I guess ebay it is...

So what you do is use the morpheus screws(no spring) with the original bracket from vega https://imgur.com/zlWfYee left are morpheus, right are vega

  • 6- test fit https://imgur.com/q6urb0n

  • 7- when attaching the bracket finally remember- THERE IS A LOT OF REBOUND FORCE, do not try to just screw it a little bit in and do another corner, screw one corner at least half or the screw will shoot up.

  • 8- I guess we're done https://imgur.com/3jP5Z7k

  • ........

big thanks to /u/Thercon_Jair /u/46_and_2 /u/radonfactory

  • ........
  • next I will wait for the 2.5m nuts, put some thermal tape on the hotspots and put the backplate on.

I didn't take a lot of pictures because I was cursing and busy holding something or cleaning thermal grease off my hands or eating waffles

Bonus: https://imgur.com/xzoXklA

I dropped my temperatures by 25-35 degrees depending on the scenario. I am undervolted to 1070@ 1600mhz and 945mhz HBM. I only did this for noise reasons, not performance though as I'm always locked at 75fps anyway.

18.7.1 came out a week ago, as evidenced by the stickied post. It was re-released today though; the date on the drivers is now 7/19/18. Anyone know what's up?

Do not just listen to the words that it "Retains data". I (foolishly) tried to combine an existing 2TB HDD and a new 120GB SSD using StoreMI WITHOUT making any backups. Huge mistake. Something went wrong during the creating process and the StoreMI program did not recognize the Fuzedrive setup.

Long story short: Ended up losing majority of my data in the 2TB drive. I recovered some of it by some sketchy-ass methods using testdisk and windows permission etc., still I lost a lot of data in it.

EDIT: I managed to get the HDD up and running. TestDisk is the real hero. Most of the files themselves are intact but they are scattered randomly in the found.000 folder. I gotta scavenge through these ~3000 unnamed folders.... ugh.

I’ve currently got a 1700 with 16gb 3200mhz ram and a GTX 1060 6GB driving a 144hz 1440p monitor. This setup is good in most games but I do starve in heavy games like PubG. My concern is that upgrading the CPU won’t help because I’m most likely GPU bound. Does this sound accurate?

Hello folks,

just a quick question: With an adequate cooling solution and an overclocking-capable board available, is there any worthile benefit in getting the 2700x over the 2700?

Just asking, because if it's just the frequency i might as well save a couple bucks.

Man was that a pickle. At least it got sorted and I'm actually running Windows 7 in 2018. Gotta say, shout out to MSI for their Windows 7 drivers.

Quick question guys, I read a while ago that it's best to be using windows 10 power plan over the ryzen plan? Is this still the case?

Thanks

Few examples of leaks from chiphell.com: 1800X, 2300X and 2500X with single CCX

Considering that Zen2's target is Ice Lake on 10nm - this rumor/leak seems to be quite believable. What do you guys think?
