You have to set this in the AB config file:
Code:
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      = 2
It's towards the bottom of MSIAfterburner.cfg.
It's very important that the value is 2 and NOT 1.

ULPS is crossfire only, puts the slave card in hyper low powerconsumption mode. You can leave ULPS on for 1 card overclocking, zero impact.
Powerplay downclocks the cards between idle/load 3D/2D. - Disabling powerplay will not help with Passing the TDP, as the TDP is set by the bios.
Powertune will help the card from fluctuating once the card is hitting the TDP barrier. Without powerpla you will likely see the card throttle and loose performance like a mofo!

I'm sorry newbie... You have it backwards.
ULPS doesn't only affect CF BTW.

Edit: I had certain details of the terminology incorrect.

I have this bug when using the unofficial overclocking mode with my 7970 where I can save the clocks to a profile but loading them defaults that profile to the lowest possible clocks.

if I don't use the unofficial overclocking mode the max clocks (like in the CCC) stay when you load a profile.

anyone else encountered this? I'm using the latest .12 beta but had this on the .11 as well.

Don't be sorry. Go read up though. ULPS is for crossfire.

Try uninstalling AB (including all configurations) and reinstalling it.

If I were to disable ULPS with my single 7970, my idle clocks would be 3D clocks all the time.
The same is true with my voltage.
Ultra Low Power Settings affects single and multi-GPU configurations.

MSI afterburner has been uninstalled/reinstalled 2x already and all traces were removed.

Really? Well I have ULPS disabled on my one card and it downclocks fine.
Powerplay is what downclock's your card.
You disable ULPS through regedit.

You disable Powerplay trough AB which forces 3D clocks. Why force 3D clocks if through AB if you can just disable ULPS to do it?

It is all in the name by the way ULPS-Ultra low power state.

I think the combination of the two disabled could cause forced 3D clocks.
PowerPlay alone doesn't force 3D clocks, it disabled PowerTune (which throttles the card).

Take it from Unwinder...

Just read up on it yourself and don't take other opinions on it. Unwinder does not mention ULPS in that post so I don't know why you linked it. He is correct, powerplay and powertune work together. ULPS is for crossfire.
Prove me wrong.
post #3080 of 38701
Couple of questions!

1. Is having a 2600k @ under 1.45 volts ok for 24/7 use?

2. What is power tune and do I need it?
