Amd r9 270x display driver stopped responding and has recovered in games/ Msi afterburner unable to adjust core voltage.

Hi, I have had this problem for a while now, when i am in games such as overwatch and csgo my game will sometimes crash and i will get the message that my rendering device has been lost. I am asking for any help on this subject, i have tried many things such as raising tdr delay, reinstalling drivers, limiting frame rate, cleaning out PC and even reinstalling windows, i have recently come across something that i think may fix it, raise the core voltage, so i downloaded msi afterburner to see that it is locked(yes i have tried adjusting the settings) if you have settings for AB or have fixed this problem your self or have any insight whatsoever, please help!. this has been frustrating me for the better part of a year. D;
Edit: my temps in game are around 70-75c I don't think that these temps are too high.

  1. This issue has a workaround.

    The issue is Microsofts default TDR setting. Basically (simplified) Microsoft has determined that a program which hasn't responded in a given time should be restarted.

    TDR stands for Timeout Detection and Recovery. This is a feature of the Windows operating system which detects response problems from a graphics card, and recovers to a functional desktop by resetting the card. If the operating system does not receive a response from a graphics card within a certain amount of time (default is 2 seconds), the operating system resets the graphics card.

    Increasing the default TDR setting to 8 seconds gives the graphics card longer to complete its task. How to do that:

    Open registry editor..run > regedit > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers. In the box to the right you may or may not see TdrDelay with a data value of (2). If you see that, double click and change the value from (2) to (8). If you don't see TdrDelay...right click on a open space and create a new Dword and name it TdrDelay . Double click that and set a value of 8. I do not recommend using a 'tool' to reset this value.

    The computer must be rebooted after making this change.

    When the drivers crash, the game always crashes too.

    Silly question, have you restarted MSI Afterburner after the crash? When my drivers crash and Windows restarts them, Afterburner stops recording most of the values it normally displays. It has to reassing itself to the new instance of drivers, by restarting it.

    Also check Afterburner settings, I think some of the values are locked by default. If you can't make that work, check Radeon settings, you can adjust those thigns from there too. I don't remember if you have to unlock them from Radeon settings first before.

    Because it's factory overclocked card some of them may wear out eventually. You also might try lowering memory and GPU speeds a bit, if you can't get it stable with the power limit increase.
