Is there a way to make “Default Wattman” settings not restore in the event of a system failure?

1 : Anonymous2021/10/09 02:54 ID: q4crt9

Exactly as the question asks. Is there a way I can force them to stick so I dont have to set them each time there is a system failure? Is there a way to make it so that radeon adrenaline loads with the profiles always set regardless of situation?

Nope...but just make a profile you can easily load.

I've already done that. I want the profiles to either stick on reboot, or auto-load on reboot

It is to prevent bootloops from a faulty overckock.

They do autoloader as long your system did not crash.

You can create profiles in the performance tab, there should be a "load" and "save" button near the top right of the performances tuning tab.

Save your settings and just load it up if you get a crash that resets your settings.

To add to this. After creating the profile in an accessible spot, make sure you go there and copy the file to another location. If you ever do a reinstall or a clean install for whatever reason, the original file will be deleted.

OP is too busy of a human to spend the 12 seconds it takes to load a saved OC on the once a month wattman crash.

It's not about the time it takes to load it. It's when it crashes when I'm not home and I can't be there to load it again

No, and for a very good reason. If they don't reset on a system failure they risk the user getting stuck in a loop.

You could try you use msi afterburner for that. Create a profile with the required frequency/voltage curve, perhaps custom fan curve then save, and set it to boot and apply on each start. That's what I've done, works fine

ID: hg0vxqq

I tried that. I couldn't find the apply on boot option

ID: hg0xtlx

If you could not find that option in AB perhaps you should not be overclocking.

Its resetting because your OC/UV isn't stable

ID: hfysqbq

Aw shit, didn't know that my UV caused the storm that killed the power for the whole neighborhood.

ID: hfzgl4m

Get a UPS

ID: hfye8ew

That's bull, because it resets my only having turned ZeroRPM off.

Something failed. So it resets to safe defaults.

Not resetting risks the user getting stuck in a loop.

Sure, you could argue some settings don't need to be reset but they opted for extra safety over extra convenience.

Agree should have a "pro" option that you can opt out for resets. Because if you have modded your card and its 100% stable BUT your cp

causes crashes it can be very dangerous loading default profile for your gpu.

8 : Anonymous2021/10/09 12:59 ID: hfz6q45

Nope. But I just only click Auto Undervolt and call it a day.

Depending on what card you have, flashing the BIOS with your OC settings might be an option, as long as you know the OC is 100% stable.

I run a custom BIOS on my 5700 XT with my 24/7 OC settings, so it doesn't really matter if Wattman ever decides to reset.

10 : Anonymous2021/10/09 19:47 ID: hg0ng5q

No and you don't want it to. If you ever put settings in there that are unstable you need it to revert to default so the machine will turn on. Nothing better than a boot loop from unstable overclocking.

ID: hg0ygly

I already know my settings won't make it boot loop. I'm not worried about that.

ID: hg18tpd

You should be! One fslse slip of a slider could be a disaster if it couldn't reset itself.

You don't have CMOS or jumpers like on a mobo to reset bios. It wouldn't brick the card but you may have to go above and beyond to recover. Like booting from a new OS and changing it so it uses windows drivers only.

Hey folks he is worried about it crashing and is not there to re load the clocks on the gpu so the OP is not is something else.

hint hint.

If the OP does not know how to set certain programs who are we to tell him how.

You looking for unattended settings outside of factory defauts in the event of an unexpected shutdown, your also mining since you want OC undervolting and or fan curve adjustments. In those use case scenarios outside of standard user operations you really only have I option and thats flashing bios to the card/cards with custom profiles or auto scripts within your mining software to apply upon bootup. Since it sounds like it was from an unexpected power loss from the comments it would be advisable to get an ups large enough and with software intergrations that will safely shutdown your rigs upon a power loss. Adrenalin software is designed to be one of the safest/least harmful ways for overclocking and getting the most of your system but that comes at the cost of manually resetting those parameters upon events that cause an unexpected shutdown.

I just take a picture of my settings f it

That's one of the reasons I sold my Vega 64 and went back to Nvidia. It drove me crazy how frequently it went back to default without any particular reason. I even made a small screen for a case to monitor my GPU to be sure my settings is on.
