XFX HD5870 overclock/overvolt

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I've got the version of this card with the fan in the middle, now I am unable to control the voltage via any program like MSI Afterburner but GPU-Z can read the voltage which suggests the card must have voltage control?

Is there anyway I can change the core voltage on this card?




Thanks.

The card probably doesn't have software controlled voltage control, as it doesn't follow the reference design. Probably the only way your going to be able to get voltage control is via a volt mod.

What is the XFX part #?

If so you can that way.

Have you tried editing the Afterburner config files or similar? I know there´s a few fixes around, but I can´t really remember how I got mine unlocked.

I tried afterburner by enabling "unofficial over clocking", never worked.
