Noticed I needed to add my OCN name in the picture, but I forgot, and I've already plugged all my cables back into the I/O.. So, if this isn't enough, that's fine with me. I'm not going to sweat it.

Does anyone know a way to control the voltage of a DCII card?

I tried SmartDoctor, and it doesn't look like it sets anything, the voltage remains on stock, I also tried to set the stock voltage with RBE, but I always get bsod at windows start whenever I change anything there.

I'm also looking for ASUS GPU tweak, but I can't really find a place to download it.

I'm also looking for ASUS GPU tweak, but I can't reall find a place to download it.

Try here:

http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=Matrix%20Series&p=9&s=2&os=30&hashedid=d6hHk9VHue1BTjYw


Select your OS, click Utilities, click GPU Tweak. Once you install, you need to restart your computer (software should tell you, you need to restart), and once GPU Tweak is finished loading, you have to un-sync the voltage-to-core "lock".


624


Hopefully this works.. I am about to use the function myself, so I haven't figured it all out yet.

Ok, well.. you have to manually change the voltage in GPU Tweak, then run Kombustor or any other utility that shows your current voltage, to make sure your voltage change saved. Once you've verified your running at your new voltage, keep GPU Tweak open, and change the core/memory through A.B. because GPU Tweak will only let you go to 950c.

I just ran 960c, OCCT stable 15min. Voltage I believe I selected was 1.035. Now, let's see how high this voltage get's me. I was able to get 940c OCCT stable 25min on stock voltage (1.012).

If you are having trouble keeping the voltage saved, while using A.B., you might have to reapply the voltage you want in GPU Tweak, then go back to A.B. and Kombustor to make sure the voltage and core is saved. Once Kombustor shows your desired core clock, at desired voltage, you're good to go.

Some times it may take a try or two to get the voltage settings saved.

OR, you can achieve the same, using the CD that came with the GPU and installing Asus Smart Doctor, or downloading it from here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1188542/how-to-over-volt-via-smartdoctor#post_16013577


My card maxes out at 1.087v, though I was at 1.062 and OCCT stable @ 970c. *Crossing fingers* 1.087v will be enough to breach 1ghz smile.gif

Thanks, ati cards run on a higher voltage of 1.1-1.3v smile.gif Also, I have a modded bios which isn't locked at 950, and allows me to go up to 2000mhz.

Also I hate SmartDoc, it is just buggy, and well... I dislike it really much.

By the way, good luck with reaching 1ghz, I've already done it on stock voltage, but wasn't really stable, it survived 2 hours, and then crashed, and after that it kept crashing.

Thanks again.

What's your stock voltage? Seems right, that it wasn't stable @ 1ghz, because most of the time there isn't enough voltage to reach 1ghz. I bet if you were to try again with 1ghz on OCCT (1920x1080, full screen, shader = 3, error check on) it'd likely post thousands of errors in seconds.


Going to finish up cooking dinner, and I'll be watching the Packers and Bears tonight. If I have some free time tonight, I'll attempt 1.0ghz.

It is 6970 stock, 1.175V.

Also I found something here.

The DCII uses a different voltage control chip than the reference card, so the only way to change the voltage is with Asus SmartDoctor. After changing the voltage, other utilities such as GPU-Z and Afterburner still report stock voltage (1.1V), but the card *is* in fact using the voltage set by SmartDoctor, as can be confirmed by much higher temperatures when benchmarking.

So basically SmartDoctor changes the voltage, so does GPU Tweak, but I can't see it. hmm.. whatever, I have a new, awesome app for it now, instead of that ugly SmartDoc.
