Having some issues. - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Yeah the 660s and 660tis aren't known for their overclocking ability.

Perhaps you can add the EULA to the MSI AB config and unlock voltage control.
Quote:
To enable the unofficial overclocking in this version it is necessary to edit the MSIAfterburner.cfg file located in the installation directory of AfterBurner (typically Program Files (x86) MSI Afterburner):


You need to alter the following:
Seek UnofficialOverclockingEULA field and add following text:
I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
Set UnofficialOverclockingMode to 1 to keep PowerPlay active (may not work on old ASICs), 2 to traditionally disable PowerPlay or to 0 to temporary disable unofficial overclocking path
Using the unofficial overclock method opens up more freedom in terms of voltages and clock ranges, it however also can open a can of worms in terms of stability or weird issues.

Unofficial means unsupported -- we grant some extra tweak options to fool around with, but in no way, manner or fashion is it supported by OCN or MSI.

Overclocking is taking a risk. Do so with caution.

Yeah,no i don't want to risk breaking my gpu cos i know i couldn't afford to buy another if this goes on me. I guess the next time i buy an amd card,they always seem to be better overclockers. frown.gif

I typically don't buy pre-overclocked cards either. The best overclocking cards I have ever owned have been stock clock or reference cards.

oh right,so there's no hope for my card then? i take it increasing the memory clock wouldn't make much of a difference?

When and where did you get it?

Could you take it back for store credit and get something else? 7870 and 7950 have good overclocking potential.
