    Hi, hoping someone can help?

    Specs:
    Nitro+ 64
    i5-4690k
    16 GB DDR3 Ram
    SSD
    1080p (But the same issue happened on 1440p with Freesync)

    I am not pulling the frames I should be, basically, but sometimes I do? CS:GO is my main game, and normally I average 90 ish fps and with often stutters dropping down to 40-50. Sometimes after an hour or two, i'll suddenly drop to about 20 fps for about 30 seconds, and then suddenly i'll be averaging 180-200 fps steady as a rock. I don't understand what is going on? When i'm averaging 90, Vega is only running about 50% at 600mhz (so downclocking itself), CPU use is at about 60%.

    I've tried disabling/uninstalling on board intel HD graphics. Changed my profile in Wattman to always be at max. I do not think im CPU bound, because why would the frames randomly jump up and stay near 200?

    Please help if you can.

    Have you tried disabling the Intel HD in the bios maybe its getting confused.
    And is the windows power profile set to high performance?

    Other than that, i dont know, it sounds weird.....

    Just changed both of those. No change. If I use the Face it client (3rd party client using CS:GO) then I get full FPS from the get go, no problems. Weird right?

    Are you running afterburner or something that might be conflicting with steam, and try disabling the steam overlay or radeon overlay, things like that

    well hello you.....now just got to wait on another rad and a couple of fittings to arrive on Monday. I know I should really be waiting till I rebuild the entire pc when R3K is out but I know that's not happening!
    surprisingly fast delivery from chinaland too.
    and i'll now be buying all future wc parts from bykski (at least where I can) comes supplied with the usual screws and heat pads but copious amounts of each spare. every possible way of hooking the rgb up is in there, along with a control box to power up to 8 fans and 4 led strips (not just the bare assed minimum - i'm looking at you ek!!)

    bykski really need to get a proper foothold in europe

    Anyone one with a Sapphire 64 nitro+ here? If so whats the correct position for the bios switch for the best performance? Cant seem to find much about it.

    Cheers :)

    Easiest way to check which is on already is to load-up gpu-z and see what the board power limit is, under advanced. If it's 240w then that's performance, if it's 220w then that's quiet/power saving mode.

    It's usually the one closest to the back of the pc that is the performance setting, not sure if that helps with a nitro+ but thats how it was on the others i used.

    I have a weird issue that has manifested in the last week (had the card for months). For some reason upon boot up and at the start of certain games the card goes crazy. Fans at full whack.

    Looking at the card now it appears that the last fan (closest the front of the PC) is on full blast. The other two off. This happens for 10 mins and now it's back to silent.

    What do you guys do to diagnose weird behaviours like this?

    Did you wipe drivers with DDU? Could you tell us which games are affected? Could you also use drivers no later than 19.5.1? (after a wipe).
