How to disable powerplay

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I've got 2 7870XT's in crossfire. One of them keeps throttling. I suspect it has something to do with powerplay.

But how do i disable this?

Disable ulps. Increase the power limit to 25%. Enable unofficial oc mode without powerplay.

Use msi AB

I believe you're referring to disabling ULPS? Try this thread by TSM...

It's under the Afterburner install - unofficial overclock method spoiler.

Install msi afterburner. Go to settings and there is an option in the bottom. One for the official method and one for the unofficial

new settings are in the beta, but I don't like the screen initializing of the betas, turning panels off/on all the time, high annoyance factor. I'd rather use 2.3.1 and manually enable uom or whatever mode you choose.

Ok so i found a way to turn of powerplay.

Enableunofficial overclock mode is set to 2 in the CFG file.

Throttling is gone. Now next problem: in 2d mode, cards don't go back to 300/150 but stay at 975/1500.

How can i fix that? smile.gif

Tnx for all the answers btw!

Clocks not downclocking is typically related to drivers. Which are you using? Btw, its predicated on you creating a default 2D profile and setting AB to use that profile in 2D mode.

I am using the 13.3 beta 3 drivers.

I am trying to set my 2d clocks in afterburner. The problem is though, that for some reason i can't set the coreclock bar below 480 mhz.

well .. it worked .. for like 3 minutes .. now my cards are just stuck at 500mhz .. srsly i think i'm going to throw my cards out of the window.

And we are back to throttling.



These are the settings which i am using.

Still on of my cards drops in load and clocks.
