My 3870 Wont Overclock 1mhz

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, I used to have an 8600GT I uninstalled drivers, ran ccleaner, ran driver cleaner pro, cleared that crap OUT. After I finished uninstalling my nvidia, I put int my 3870, with the drivers on the CD (8.4 i think). I could OC a little bit, not too much, and I wasn't really concerned too much. I uninstalled those drivers using the CCC Uninstall utiltiy, ran ccleaner again, and driver cleaner pro, and even ran a clean for nvidia again in case it missed something. I also did this in safemode. So, on reboot i install 8.6 drivers and now i cant OC 1 MHZ. Not the core, not the memory. NOTHING. AND, to top it off, even when I leave it on stock and hit the "test custom settings" button, the test FAILS. What the HECK is going on here guys? Im seriously SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO mad.

the memory doesn't work for me in CCC at all either

try AmdGPUtool0.7 with Rivatuner for the fan controls.

the gpu tool will say the clocks didn't work(but they do) and it's a little buggy but it's the best working, i've gotten 890+cores on my 3870's in suicide runs from that program, where i topped out at 850 or so on riva/atiTOOL

PS: i still use ATItool for their stress test though

Does ATi tool work in vista yet?
Im not so familiar with RivaTuner because it always screws up my registry and i never bother using it again...

edit: i DL'd AMDGPUclockTool and it said "no valid deviced found"

ati tool will work in vista if you use the 0.27beta, but it won't let you set clocks

that's a little strange, maybe you could try running it a couple of times, or to reboot first?.......maybe set your card back to defaults in CCC? i've never seen that before

I have 500 watt, which is good enough for 1 card.
