I have an XFX RX470, after I changed its' fan mode from fuzzy to legacy(LUT) via modding bios. I got BSOD as soon as I opened GPU-Z.

It's normal before modding the bios. V2.1.0 and the newest test build have same problem. Here's the minidump.

@unknownzero does the test build work better?
Yes this build was stable. Sensors look good too.

One note after submitting BIOS and the driver cycling. The window no longer presents information and appears as I've attached. It is however still alive and well, in regards to taking screenshots still shows the prompt.

Do you have Skype or Discord so we can do a debugging session? (text-chat only)
Sorry, I don't have those. But maybe I can create an account some time later.

Problem occurs after I changed fan mode, this issue seems to be somehow clear? Can you analyse the dump file?

Plus: dump file still exist though it's gray screen instead of BSOD, with this 2 new versions.

Unless I can reproduce the problem locally it's too difficult too debug, which is why I'm asking for your help. I think you don't even need to register on Discord and it'll run in your browser

The ones before this last update 416.16.
couldn't reproduce it with 411.70 + 2080 ti. does it happen every time? on save to file too? when you drag the window offscreen and back does it get redrawn correctly?

OK, what's your ID?

I can let you reproduce the problem only if you have a Polaris card like RX4XX/5XX. What you want to do is modding your BIOS like this and flash it.

It's quite the edge case and requires the window to be in the bottom right of the screen (2160p resolution without scaling in my case), and right before the bios is saved, click somewhere else so GPU-Z loses its foreground focus. After the resolution change the Dialog window has relocated to -32000,-32000. Hopefully this helps.
