Overclocking 3870 in Vista X64 not possible?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i'm trying to follow some of the guides here but every time i attempt to install any kind of overclocking software, this is what I get...



Is this all vista or just x64?

Use the overclocking utility in CCC. Also the latest version of Riva works on Vista, but its hard to wrangle.

The latest version of RivaTuner should work fine.

the latest beta of atitool will work in vista.

This is a beta though, so keep that in mind.

I've been able to install Rivatuner in Vista x64 for several releases. Are you sure that you have the latest release? I KNOW it works, as I have it installed right now....

EDIT:
Get it here

i used riva tuner and ati tool, both didn't work for me and i couldn't make it through 3dmark06 at anything higher than 850 core, (and even then my score WENT DOWN?!?)

i saw AMDGPUClockTool_v0.7 in a thread and thought i'd give it a go...

when you set the clocks it says that they failed but they actually work (i usually have this and rivatuner running for fan controls/verification) and the interface is laggy

i ran 3dmark06 successfully at 885 core with this program and broke the 10k 3dmark barrier on a 2.95ghz athlonx2

the clocks just seem to work better

good luck

The only ways that I know of to OC both cards is using AMD GPU CLock tool, Overdrive, or flashing the BIOS. I do the latter.
