Overclock Crossfire?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
'ello there!
I'm currently over clocking my X1600 (which doesn't seem to be doing very well btw) and am thinking of throwing my other X1600 into my mobo & over clock them both a tad. However, I'm not sure how I would go about achieving such a task. I haven't seen any tutorials or FAQ's for over clocking duo video card machines.

Any link or tips?

Btw, my current Overclock of my X1600 is at 554Mhz GPU/468Mhz Ram (500/400 are defaults) and running at around 51C, I expected much higher temps for such a low OC, is this normal?

when i had my stock comp at 485/350 (a hair above stock) it ran at around 40C....so yea, i think thats about normal for a low OC. if you raise it up farther, expect to see your temps go up much faster, and much higher.

Ugh, really? I don't really see any real performance boost w/ this over clock.

Btw, my VPU just crashed. Yay for VPU recover! lawl

Though it's not directly applicable, ATItool was the best OCing program for my 1900xt xfire, you can OC each card individually.

Is that so? I tried launching ATI Tool on my crossfire setup but there was still only 2 bars (one set of GPU/Mem). Ideas?

That's because you're only working on one card, hehe.

You go into the 'settings' and change the 'use device' to the address listed in the pull down.
