Trixx or Afterburner?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi
I'm testing my new Sapphire 7970 and OC it with Trixx. Now I'm at 1100/1500 with furmark, it seems good.
I was wondering, although Trixx is from Sapphire is it better Afterburner (I used it with the Nvidia cards)?
And what is Power Limit?

EDIT
Actually BF3 and Bulletstorm crashed, so it's not stable sadsmiley.gif

I prefer to use Trixx. There's a slider for the board power limit, it sets PowerTune up to 20%.

Afterburner has the powerslider as well. I prefer Afterburner for the realtime ingame readings (voltage,etc.)

Actually the 2nd sentence was related to his second question. I shouldn't have put both sentences on the same line.

Do I have to set powertune to 20% for every overclock?

Yea I would reccomend to do that because it allows your card to reach for the voltage it needs and doesn't restrict it. You won't hurt anything with a 20% power control if that is what you are worried about.

Afterburner is an AIO solution. It's got ingame monitors (OSD), a Kombustor shortcut for quick stress testing and all of the features Trixx has (besides the disable ULPS option but that's a quick fix in the registry).

Trixx would be unstoppable if it had any ingame monitors like Afterburner does. I guess you could still use HWinfo64 in collaboration with Rivatuner to get the same thing, but its annoying to setup and you have to do it every restart.

MSI AB isn't that great, it just has great compatibility. Its pretty buggy to be honest (Locks voltage while every other program out there still allows you to change voltage, screen flickers when changing clocks, failing to set voltage when restarting computer or coming back from sleep) the list goes on.

Agree. I have used AB for years for my overclocking needs. Now I use it for monitoring and let either TriXX or even HIS iTurbo handle my overclocks, they seem much more stable and I get better results than with AB, it's weird.

AB has better monitoring and better custom fan controls. You can set frame limiter, as well as voltages for most cards that are unlocked.

I unfortunately have to use GPU Tweak as it is the only thing that can control Matrix 2nd fan, voltage and Load Line Calibration. But i use GPU Tweak for overclocking, AB for monitoring/frame limiter.
