Question Is there an issue with my GPU?

May 28, 2019
Hey guys.
So recently I’ve decided to OC my Sapphire Rx580 4Gb. Originally it was at 1411 but I slowly OCed to 1465 taking it 10Mhz at a time and 50 MHz at a time for the memory clock. I finally landed on a 1465 GPU clock and 2150 Memory clock.
It was all fine until I started Hitman 2. Everything was good for a while until I started noticing artifacts and then shortly after my game crashed and pc froze. Ever since my PC crashed my OC settings keep changing.
I can no longer use MSI afterburner to OC my GPU instead I can only use the Radeon overclocker.
Everytime I try and run a game, the clock speed and memory clock keep going back to 1465 and 2150 although I’ve changed the settings in Radeon settings. I’m scared I might’ve damaged my GPU.

I constantly change OC settings back to its default in both afterburner and Radeon settings but it keeps going back to 1465. I can change the clock speeds whilst I’m playing a game and it will go to that clock speed. However everytime I launch a game or new game it goes back to 1465.

Any idea how I can fix this issue?

My specs:
Ryzen 7 1700
ASrock b450m Steel Legend
1x8gb 3200Mhz
Sapphire RX 580 4GB
