cant increase XFX 5870 voltage?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I tried my hand at doing overclocking on my xfx 5870 a while back and kind of just gave it up and kept it at the overclocks offered in CCC for a while. I decided to go back to it today so I downloaded afterburner and also did the unofficial overclocking thing in the config file. However, everything is changeable as it should be EXCEPT for voltage controls, can someone help me out? I also looked in GPU tool and it said "this card does not support voltage controls", but I remember when I tried overclocking last year, I could change all that in afterburner. I have since changed motherboard/chip and done a new windows install since last year...could it be a drivers issue?

Do you have Trixx?

Also, can you link us to your exact card?

Did you open afterburner settings and tick unlock voltage controls then restart afterburner?

Sounds like they dont make this card anymore? I figured they would...I was thinking of getting another and trying my hand at crossfire. Could I mix and match say, a 6000 series card in crossfire with my 5870?
