rx580 4g oc armor only 19mh/s?

I am new to all this. I have been horsing around with a system. The computer is a ryzen 5 1400 with 8 gigs ddr4, samsung240 gig m.2 ssd. Motherboard is amd b350 bazooka. The video card a rx580 4g oc armor. I have been using afterburner to tweak the graphics card and has it set to one of the many fairly standard o/c settings (tried several and what I have currently is best). After starting out at around 14mh/s I am maxing out around 19 mh/s. I've tried setting mother board on turbo, etc. and am not making any progress. Is the armor a bad card for mining? Do I need to actually change the bios on the video card? I was under the impression that afterburner would tweak the same settings.

I've used claymore and ethminer both to about the same results. Any advice or help would be appreciated. I am planning on an upgraded m/b and more/better video cards but I don't want to invest until I have a better handle on what if anything I'm doing wrong now.

    You need to stop using MSI AB, Read and digest this great ariticle. My newley bought 580 4Gb Nitro is now mining at 26.4M/hs, this is after applying some of the great tips on this article....

    #1 Yes you have to change bios. Otherwise best case scenario you'll get 26mh/s
    #2 you need to go into the AMD Wattman and change the card settings from Graphics to Compute.
    #3 Changing motherboard settings won't change anything for you. it's all graphics card.
    #4 Don't use Windows. It's super annoying to get working. And buggy at best. I've had situations where windows decided not to turn the card fans on and I was cooking my cards.

    You should make a bootable USB for simpleminerOS. Way more stable and easier to overclock and tweak settings. If you already have a claymore config that works, I suspect you could get simpleminer working in 10 minutes.
    Best part is you can then control your mining remotely via a website. tweak things on your phone while you're relaxing on the couch watching tv.

    Thanks for input. I switched to compute and am getting 26 now. Will mod bios next week.

    I thought the AMD WattMan was for AMD 4## cards Only? If not where can i find it as This 'Compute' setting is now where to be found on my AMD Radeon Settings. I am using these drivers...

    My hashrate dropped too. my 480 is getting 18MH/s instead of 27MH/s. I've been mining for the past 4 months. And suddenly it dropped.
