Program for tweaking and monitoring voltage

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Please suggest a program for tweaking and monitoring video card core voltage, preferably universal - for all brands.

Don't know what was up with MSI afterburner, but it sure did not work - it did not allow me to alter voltage despite the bravado. Perhaps it is because my card is Asus - in that case i need a universal program.

Download the MSI Afterburner beta 2.2 (12) and it will let you unlock the voltage. You have to check a box in the settings to allow it. I am assuming you did this is the 2.1 version but still had no luck. The Beta will unlock for most other cards that 2.1 does not allow.

Ah, looks like you're probably going to have to flash it with a custom BIOS like it had to with my 5850s. But you can brick your card doing that.

Here's a how to:

Well chances are you will fine as along as you backup the original bios. Even if it bricks it and you restore the original bios, you can still RMA the card if its still under warranty. Just giving you some options smile.gif

To have full overclcoking control with Afterburner, you need to enable "unofficial overclocking". Exit Afterburner and CCC Overdrive prior to editing the .cfg file.

 

HOW TO: Enable UNOFFICIAL overclocking mode in MSI AfterBurner

Afterburner, Trixx, Clocktweak, CMDATIGEN1
All have overclock/voltage adjusting regardless of cards brand.
