hd 7950 with after burner help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey,

so i just got my gigabyte 7950 water cooled and try to push it further tha 1100mhz was i was able to get on air cooling at 1.106v and never went over 55c... since msi afterburner only let me go to 1100 i tried sapphire triixx and was able to get 1200mhz at 1.136 stable. but with trixx the overclock doesn't enable when u start ur computer you always have to set it yourself which is annoying.

after searching for a while i found in AB that you could adjust the file to get it pass the oc limit, so i did that but every time i do it my screen start tearing like crazy, no in game just on the desktop, if i type or open something is tears and flickers... but if i remove the i unadjusted the AB file its fine... is there a reason why it does that? and is there another program similar to AB that will let me pass the oc limit?

With MSI Afterburner, to bypass the limit, don't edit:
Code:
UnofficialOverclockingEULA
UnofficialOverclockingMode

Instead, you should do this(worked for me):
1. Paste 'atipdl64.dll and 'atipdlxx.dll' into your Afterburner folder(in attachment).
2. Make a shortcut to 'MSIAfterburner.exe'.
3. Right click on that and go to 'Properties'.
4. In the target area, add ' -xcl' and apply, like this:

5. Close Afterburner completely and restart it though this shortcut.
6. It should ask you to reboot your PC, do so.
7. Delete the shortcut, start it as normal and enjoy overclocking smile.gif


Hope that works for you.

I will be trying this myself as I had the same problem, but fixed it a different way.

What I had done was instead of setting "UnofficialOverclockingMode" to 1 I had set it to 2. When you set it to 1 it keeps PowerPlay enabled, which is like a power saving mode; while, 2 disables PowerPlay. For me, this had actually solved the problem, although this made it so the card is always at a Overclocked state never "stepping" down to a lower clock when idling.
