Can't Overclock?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey does anyone know how to solve this:

I got a 5850, by Afox, cuz my friend's dad works for that company.
(Linux btw)

However, when I try to overclock it using the aticonfig --od-setclock=800, 1100 --adapter=3 (Which is max)
Nothing happens. I use aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all to show the clock speeds and it says current clocks : 725, 1000. Current peak : 800, 1100.
So...the peak changed but the current clock isn't changing. I used AMDOverdriveCtrl, and the "high" profile is indeed 800mhz, but it's not going there. Clicking "set" doesn't do anything either...

Help!?! Do I need to flash the bios? Can I even flash it if it's not reference?

Never heard of Afox. Maybe they don't allow you to overclock their cards. You can try downloading MSI Afterburner and use that.

I think you can though. There's even a profile called "high" set to 800mhz...so it must be possible for it to get there. Right now it's on "med" and it won't budge.

Edit: are you sure it is not just downclocking while not under heavy use?


I never had luck with amdoverdrivectrl.

When you use the aticonfig from the terminal there is a command to confirm the clocks after you set them. I think it is aticonfig --od-commitclocks. This will load them at boot as well. This worked for my 6870s. Also use the --od-getclocks option to ensure you are setting them within the range it allows.

If that does not work nothing probably will.
