CCC/Afterburner Conflict

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So... I need CCC because I sometimes need to disable crossfire. And I need to Afterburner because I can overclock the gpus better.

The problem is that the limit of the OC in CCC resets what I do in Afterburner when I reboot.

Is there anyway I can raise the limit in CCC?

I have two 6950s for what it is worth.

In afterburner, I have them both set to run at 880/1375, but CCC resets that to 840/1278 on reboot. It also messes up the fan settings.

Any ideas?

Hey! How did you start this thread ? I've been tyring to start one but can't figure out how to do it lol .
Anyway to try and answer your question. I don't know if the 6950 operates in the exact manner as the 5970 (which i have) but to stop ccc from doing that you will have to go into the registry to change some stuff which if you don't know much about the registry then i would say leave that alone, or just wait for someone here with more knowledge and experience to aid you.

I currently use just afterburner (the lastest version) and disregard ccc altogether. I literally remove ccc from my computer (win 7 64 bit) and allow windows to install it's own drivers. then i use afterburner to do my overclocks. In doing it this way i have not had any issues with ccc and it's drivers. Another helpful thing is with ccc you tend to see the down clocks speed, which is good when you are not doing anything heavy with your system. Afterburner allows this too which i didn't know initially. If you download the latest gpu-z and run your overclock in afterburner, just go to the sensors tab in gpu-z and see what speeds your gpu core & memory clocks are running at when your system is at idle. You will see that it's way down from your sweet overclock. Now run a program like kombustor and watch those clocks jump to your overclock settings . And remember, if you want your system to load with your overclock settings, always select the 'apply overclocking at system startup' located at the bottom of the afterburner window.
I hope this helps .

When you are looking at the list of posts and it shows what page you are on, look to the left of that and there is a big new thread button.

I appreciate the feedback, but the issue is I need CCC to switch back and forth between crossfire on/off. I have found no other way to toggle it without CCC.

I think I may of come across a fix though. I used this: http://www.techimo.com/forum/graphic...reg-entry.html

So far I've rebooted 3 times and my settings have stuck everytime. I might be out of the woods =)

I did had that problem with my old card (HD 5850) w/Afterburner. Try older version of CCC and it might fix it. For example I installed 11.5 but it was keep resetting my settings with fan speeds, so I tried 11.4 it didnt work, then I tried 11.3 and it worked... Good luck
