What in the hell is up with afterburner and 7970?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have an MSI R7970-2PMD3GD5. I use afterburner to OC to the max

Power limit =20%
Core Clock= 1125 MHz
Memory Clock= 1575 MHz

I run Heaven and and PC Mark and it tuns fine. Now I want to utilize my Komodo water block and OC this thing to the max.

Since Afterburner was capped I went into the config file and yada yada yada to increase the values. Then I open up afterburner after a restart I start the the program again and everything is back to stock. I try to OC then and the card start artifacting. I even try bringing it back to

Power limit =20%
Core Clock= 1125 MHz
Memory Clock= 1575 MHz

and it doesn't work. I then went back into the config, changed the 1 to 0 and deleted the disclaimer. Now I can get it back to the OC settings working fine like at first. ***?

I did have it on so I turned overdrive off and restarted. I have it oc at the highest stock settings and whenever I move a window or scroll bar the entire screen shakes like there's and earthquake inside my monitor. If I change the config file back to normal and leave AB on the same settings it work fine.

So I went with Trixx and that seems to work. I find it very odd that AB isnt flawless with my MSI card.

My lighting 7970 it artifacts at anything above 1150 so I add a little voltage.It seems as it does nothing at all to it. I am confused as hell. I thought when you see slight artifacts add voltage not this card and to top it off my temps are great. So I try TRIXX and it seems to like that better no artifacts but still voltage does nothing I can just clock higher on stock with Trixx.
