[SOLVED] 7970 Crossfire Overclocking Issues with MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 (Official Release)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I can't overclock both my cards in my crossfire setup. One does just fine, but the other is completely dead, almost. I've swapped their spots, and no matter which one is the bottom card, it will still fail.

I'm using the official release of MSI Afterburner 2.2.0 that has native support for these cards, yet I still don't know what to do. Here's a 4 minute video explaining everything in better detail, ans showing you exactly what's happening.

*EDIT: Yes, the cards are sync'd, but still will not "sync". biggrin.gif

FIX: Disable ULPS if you haven't! I thought I did, and had to do it again. I was linked an exe from somewhere on the OCN site that resolved my issue. Do a google search, and I'm sure you can find it.

I just uninstalled MSI Afterburner, my AMD Drivers, and installed a clean copy of 12.3. It's STILL doing it. The clock is set to stock in CCC on both cards, but the second (bottom) card reads 0MHz in both core clock and memory clock in CCC Performance tab.

I'm really starting to get worried here frown.gif I know the card isn't dead, because if I swap their spots, the other card will start doing it, and the one that WAS on the bottom thats now GPU one, is now working and reading specs just fine.

Help please? frown.gif

7000 series cards power down when not in use. you'll have to disable ULPS. The Sapphire Trixx utility can let you do it

Wow i feel like an idiot. I thought I disabled that a long time ago. Guess it comes back with every new driver install? oh well, I ran that utility, and I think i'm going to give Trixx another go. I didn't like it before, but that was because I wasn't used to the Custom fan profile. Thanks guys, I'll report back with overclock updates.

Before you edited your post, you linked me a ULPS fix exe. It worked flawlessly! I'm now able to OC my cards through MSI AA 2.2.0 (OR) Thank you so much biggrin.gif

I was a little cautious at first, cause Chrome told me to discard it cause it "looked malicious." but I downloaded it anyways after noticing the person who linked it was reputable, and I honestly doubt someone well established here within the community would do that to anyone tongue.gif
