    Don't update to AMD's latest graphics card driver

    This why AMD's new 16.7.3 drivers are so broken.

    I could not auto-update to that version anyway, there was an error about the install manager already running. If all future updates will prevent OC'ing then I'll just stick the the previous driver. as I'm currently OC'd


    Wonder how their QA department tests these things!

    Yeah I also got the Install Manager error. But I managed to update the driver on my second attempt. No issues or crashes so far.

    Also got the error while auto-updating. I downloaded the standalone install package, did a complete uninstall of all AMD drivers, and then installed from scratch. Seems to be working with no issues so far.
