My 7970 overclock keeps jumping back to stock! Help :(

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I've overclocked my Sapphire 7970 to 1300/1750 with 1.25v using Sapphire Trixx and every time I restart my computer or even during a game of battlefield 3 the clocks jump back to stock.

During battlefield 3 the game will jump into windows mode and that's when the clocks on gpu jump back to stock, it's quite frustrating.

Why is this happening? frown.gif

Is there any other programs I can use? I've tried msi after burner but the core clocks on it are maxed 1100.

Just to make sure, you are leaving the program running, right?

The program is running all the time but it always seems to clock itself back to stock start up and sometimes during gaming. I've made sure that the overclock 100% stable and the temps dont go past 45 degrees during hours of battlefield.

enable unofficial overclocking in afterburner. trixx is likely the program that is causing the issues. force a 3d profile in afterburner if you have to.

It should work, but you can always try MSI Afterburner instead.

You can go further with Afterburner if you do this:

1. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner\MSIAfterburner.cfg with notepad.
2. Find this:

[ATIADLHAL]
UnofficialOverclockingEULA =
UnofficialOverclockingMode = 0
AccessibilityCheckingPeriod = 0
UnifiedMemoryUsageMonitoring = 1

And change it to:

[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
AccessibilityCheckingPeriod = 0
UnifiedMemoryUsageMonitoring = 1

3. Save the file and restart Afterburner.
