Well, I didn't do anything to unlock voltages. I have the MSI card and it has 3 voltage controls by default. I've only had to use the Asus GPU tweak to remove 1050MHz OC limit on the core. Also, I am running the12.8 drivers. You should try the Asus GPU tweak or the Sapphire TRIXX software, maybe it will work for you.

Guys quick question; I have a visiontek 7850, Do I need to download the 12.8 drivers for them from AMD.com and Visiontek.com? Or just one of them? Because the Visiontek ones file name is Cat_win_7 where as the amd.com ones are named something along the lines of 12-8_vista_win7_win8_32-64_ccc ? any help would be appreciated!

You want the ones straight from AMD website. Never load the ones from the manufacturer.

Sooo since my card wouldn't overclock much at all without increasing the voltage a lot, I decided to take off my GPU reactor and see what happens. If you don't know what it is, it's a little pcb that plugs into the back of MSI Hawk cards that is supposed to increase overclock stability by giving better voltage control. Now after I took it off, I can actually overclock without increasing my voltage a lot. With it on I had to do 1300mv for a 1200 mhz core, now I am still testing but so far I did 1200mhz@1250mv. Edit: now I played a couple games of bf3 at stock volts (1218)

That's interesting, I was under the impression that extra chip was needed for extreme overclocking to smooth out power or whatever, had no idea it could inhibit "normal" overclocking

It isn't supposed to, there must be something wrong with mine.

I have finally been able to remove the 1050mhz restriction on my 7850 and have it running 1100/1200 on stock volts, the only problem is now i still cant unlock the voltage. I have tried enabling it in the afterburner cfg file with no luck and i have also ticked the unlock voltage option in the general settings of afterburner.

Any ideas? im running version 2.2.3 with the 12.3 drivers
