MSI afterburner won't let me OC shader clock.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I got radeon 6970s (real ones not flashed 6950s) and the shader clock bar, and voltage are both grayed out with nothing listed. How do you enable it? I can alter core clock, memory clock and fan speeds, thats it.

You can't adjust the shader clock on Radeon cards since it runs the same as the core afaik. As for voltage, you'll have to enable voltage control under the settings tabs. There is also a slight possibility that the voltage controller your card has doesn't support software voltage adjustment. What brand is it, reference or not?

core clock is linked to shader, so whatever you do to the core clock will affect the shader clock as well. as for voltage, just depends on your card. Some cards can be unlock with asus smart doctor. Also the most recent beta includes voltage support for a few more cards

Hmm.. it is possible that MSI Afterburner does not support the voltage controller used on it yet. Which version of it are you using? And have you tried Sapphire Trixx?

I got another problem. In MSI its set stock as 900MHZ core clock, and 1400MHZ memory clock, and if I set the bar to max, 1000 core, and 1500 memory clock, it blue screens my PC, and hard crashes every time. Anything else I'm supposed to do if I want to OC these GPUs? Am I missing something here?

you need to increase the GPU voltage. You can't just increase core and memory frequency without increasing the GPU voltage. this is just crazy talk.

guru3d.com OC'd the hell out of one of these 6970 Ice Q turbos for one of their reviews.

http://www.guru3d.com/article/his-ra...urbo-review/21

So it appears you can adjust the voltage on these with MSI, at least they were able to.

So how do I enable voltage increase with MSI? If I OC both cards I should get a decent boost.

My MSI afterburner is v 2.1

first off all not every graphic card is the same. some GPUs overclock very nicely some are just bad. Samething goes for the CPU and RAM.

to enable voltage in MSI afterburner do this:-
