MSI Afterburner sucks! - Page 8

post #71 of 83
I have since gotten MSI Afterburner to work correctly and keep my overclocks. I think last time I tried I didn't follow the instructions well enough. This time I followed the AMD How to thread and set up MSI Afterburner using unofficial overclocking method. I also am using the frame limiter and this is helping a lot! Also, this time I used the AMD clock control files, which I did not use last time.

I would ask about it on Guru3d but I don't want Unwinder to yell at me.

yeah, hes a cranky SOB..

I don't think he gives any support for that since it's unofficial and it's due to a driver hole. Says there is no available API from AMD to do unofficial overclocking like that.

I was under the impression hes stuck the 2 missing DLLs in the install package with the latest release..

/xcl is supposed to be official mode...

His bs was a lot more understandable when he wasn't getting paid. Now it just comes off as douchey.

Personally I far prefer the modified version of Trixx, works great on my 3x 7970's.

I have to say though, the amount of bid vibes some of you guys throw around at programs and their respective programmers that have given you these utilities for free is very dissapointing. No wonder they sometimes get cranky when they reply!

If you have paid for a service and its crap, feel free to shout, but when its free and you have issues, have some bloody respect when asking for support or disciussing their hard work! Jesus, even AMD themselves with multi million £ budgets and staff cant get these systems stable, but all your own issues must be due to AB/ASUS/Trixx being junk yeah? Come on guys!

And If its really that bad and you know you can do better, lets see it, free or commercial. smile.gif

**Note**
I am not specifically referring to this topic - just in general. It must be so dissheartening to the programmers to read nothing but negativity after all their hard wrk.
Would you read such comments then sit down to work hard all night to HELP OTHERS OUT FOR FREE? I bloody wouldnt!

It's ok dude. Unwinder takes care of himself pretty well. Here is an example of Unwinder throwing down some of his edumacation. The poster in question obviously had a huge post edit after realizing he was wrong. Most ppl complaining are doing it wrong and fail to understand what's happening behind the scenes. In other words they fail to realize that AMD is behind what's going on here. AMD has been ripping out overclocking support since 12.4 drivers and all ppl can do here is blindly complain at AB/Trixx/others etc.. and not at AMD, lol. Ironically I used to give him a lot of heat... AB really sucked imo back then with Cayman but since then I can't complain with how far Alexey has pushed his code.

I agree the blame isn't on Afterburner or Trixx. It's on AMD. If AMD provided proper overclocking support, then we wouldn't need Afterburner and Trixx.

Sorry if this is off topic but regarding the /xcl option, is there anything else you have to do to remove the ULPS profiles it sets aside from changing drivers? I read that clears them up but I'm not sure if it could cause issues later on.

Edit: Reading that Guru3D post by Unwinder now.
