Overclocking via MSI afterburner

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello there everyone.

I currently own a Asus g73 laptop and can overclock it from core clock @675 to @ 776 and the memory from @1250 to @ 1438

In the memu however i have core voltage and fan speed locked and can never move them.

Tomorrow my desktop is arriving with a Twin Frozr III 570 GTX. I will be installing MSI afterburner to overclock the graphics card.

Will it be the same method again? Will this time the voltage option be unlocked for me to tweak? If so how sould i handle the voltage?

Thank you everyone.

You have to go into settings and unlock voltage control.

You also have to go to the Afterburner Install folder and locate the MSIAfterburner.cfg file.

Look for a line at the bottom and make sure it looks like this:

Code:
[ATIADLHAL]
UnofficialOverclockingEULA= I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
UnofficialOverclockingMode= 1
I wouldn't recommend messing with voltages on your laptop. I would also look up overclocking guides for your 570. I hear they have less than adequate VRMs, so voltage tweaking can kill some cards.

Most Laptop bios are setup so that you can not overclock as the manufacturer does not want you to mess with it for warranty purposes. It is ral tuff to overclock most laptops.

Thank you so much.

The thing is do i need to play with my voltage? I mean in the laptop without playing around with the voltage i can just overclock the shader/core and memory which boosts my fps up to 10 even 15%

But is overclocking the voltage in desktop cards a must? Can i just overclock the memory core/shader and be done with?

I am not worried about my laptop as i wont game on it often anymore but i really want to get the most i can from a 570.

even a 10% boost in FPS would be nice.

Though in 1080pgaming i am sure 570 will be enough anyway.

I don't have any experience OCing a 570. This thread has some people talking about overclocking their 570s.

I'd take that advice for the laptop. Not sure on the MSI 570 but some 570s like the Asus have beefier VRMs than standard 570s so voltage tweaking on those cards is no more of an issue than on regular cards. I don't usually bump voltage. My rule of thumb is don't OC it if you can't afford to replace it.

Thank you as I will dip into that thread soon now. I wonder the feedbacks.

It seems thats what i will do as well.

At first i iwll only overclock the core/shader and the memory.

Hack even put a SLI in a few months but i doubt i will ever play with the voltage.

I just hope i dont get bored one day and decide to overclock the voltage as i might just burn it yeah.

You would probably be able to get a decent OC without messing with voltage but its different from card to card so to answer your earlier question OCing voltages isn't a must.

Good to hear

a 570 GTX in 1080p setting should be able to handle BF3 well i suppose. I would be happy with a 2X antiallising, and dont even bother more. To be honest when gaming in 1080p i barely see the difference of AA. In the past while gaming in 720p i could see the benefit but in 1080p i just cant. But i am sure when i turn it on the experience would be a bit better. Also i am so used to having Vsync OFF in games that it rarely bothers me and most games i play never have the tearing issue.

So the bottom line is that it seems that i will only overclock the core/shader and the memory.

In my laptop my core was 675 and i decided to multiply it by 1.15 which gave me 776... 1.15 meaning getting 15% more from the regular level.

I did the same with the memory.1250*1.15 gave me 1438 too

Which basically means that i overclocked my 460m 15% than its regular clock powers...

I will try to do the same with 570. But i guess 15% is out of the question without overclocking the voltage.
