GPU Tool is for the Mhz above 960 and 1445
AfterBurner is only for the Volts.


I haven't figured out yet how to make the CFG file work? So word is that IF you change that it will allow you to OC past 960/1445 using Afterburner? Is there a special way or order that you are supposed to change it. I tried it and it didn't work past 960/1445. Maybe I did it wrong.

So you're supposed to change it to a 1 from a 0? Yes, no?
Yes change it to a 1 but i have issues with it im gonna flash my 5870 to Asus bios and try again.

Nice, keep it up and let us know how the bath goes? Are dipping the whole thing in IA?

ATM its just sat over my sink and i have a standing amount of alcohol across the lower half of the board...this is just as effective as if i bathed it in the stuff except i don't have to wait for the bath to evaporate

I am using a hairdryer (set to cold air) to blow the alcohol under/over everything...so far it looks as good as the day i bought it...testing will come tomorrow evening

Make sure that you Prime blend it for a about 10-15minutes and then shut prime off, let her cool to idle and then shut the whole system down for about 20-30 minutes, maybe even by a cracked window. Then fire her up and do the same thing again, 2 more times.

That will allow the TIM to expand and contract enough to become a tad bit more dense to the point that it will transfer heat to the most optimal leve
Yeah I had already removed the stock thermal paste and cleaned it real well, and installed the AS5 and let it cure 3-4 days
And still would get around 45c idle without cool and quiet, and 60c+ at full load on stock clock

I went ahead and reseated the heat sink, still terrible temps The stock heatsink looked hardely flat, lots of big scratches from machining.. And almost looked concaved (or convex.. looked like the center stuck out further then the edges)

Tonight modded my RBX water block to fit, and get AWESOME temps now! Right out the gate with cool water, getting 37c full load! and 25c idle lol... Now after running over a hour without fans on the radiator, still only getting 34c idle and well under 45cfull load

Going to push it far tonight/ tomorrow see what I can get out of it.

edit: also last night after a lot of testing, I found 3.7 to be stable at 1.39v, isn't quiet as bad as my previous 1.42v for 3.7

DUDE!!!!! Good stuff man! I love H2O!!!!

Anyway, Mine is Stable at 3.8 (200x19) @ Stock volts. Vdroop in CPU-Z on full load is 1.376v

I'm also @:
CPU-NB (IMC) 2800 @ 1.28 BIOS, 1.31v in Everest (probably less being that Everest always rounds up.)
Ram 1600Mhz CL6-6-6-18-24-1T @ 2.02v (Stock is 2.0-2.05v)
HT Link 2Ghz @ 1.25
NB Chipset @ 1.3v
SB Chipset @ 1.25v
PCI-e PLL @ 1.82 (Stock is 1.8)

Been Prime Blending getting ready to pass now on 5 hours... Temps on water are 45.5*C and Idles @ about 27-28*C

I just went and order some new WCS Parts as well tonight.

1.) Swiftech MCR220-QP Res W/ Barbs: 1/4 to 1/2" Swiftech Steel High Flow barbs


2.) 2x Scythe "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan - High (3000Rpm 133CFM I can always run those at lower RPM's)


3.) Sunbeam Multi Fan Power Port


I got that last one so I could have control over the Rad fans but still plug the Front case, side intake (Pointed at NB/Mosfet HS) and 120mm Blowing over the top of Video card, soon to be in between my 5770's . And I'll still have plugs for three more 3pin fans!!!

I hoping that coming from the 120x120 Gigabyte Aluminim Rad to a 240x120 Swiftech Rad I'll drop my Load temps a bit. My Idles are low enough right now that it doesn't even matter to me. Plus I'll be able to possibly save up and get a couple water blocks for the 5770(s) in the future. Maybe by that time they'll actually be some available...

Hey, don't waste your time. You go through all, risk Effing something up, brick it and then can't explain that to the MFR...

Just use AMD GPU Tool and Afterburner for Voltage. Works just fine. It's little extra work but hey, No Worries!!!

It won't allow you to save it directly in that folder. What I did was change the value, save it in My Documents, and copy that file over to the MSI Afterburner folder. Sounds troublesome, but it gets it to work

Dude, it doesn't work. I'm geting irritated with even trying.

This is what I did.

I have MSI afterburner installed in my "Installed Programs" FOlder in my D: Drive.

- I go into the MSI Afterburner Folder and open the MSI Afterburner.cfg file with "Notepad" (Is that okay? it works with every other file that I need to mod)

- Then I changed the 0 to a 1 and selected "Save" under the file menu.

- Then I try to repoen and change the Core clock past 960 and it doens't work.

- I recopied a fresh cfg file of the original back into the MSI Afterburner folder to replace the one that I changed to start fresh.

-I then open the cfg file and changed the 0 to 1 again and "Seved as"
is the file tab again but saved it to my desktop. I then recpoied it back to the MSI AFterburner folder and deleted the original one and closed out of that window.

- When I tried to go past 960 it doesn't save it. It just kicks it back to the last clock below 960 that I had it at.

Nothing. Does it just NOT work with my card?

PreEDIT: HACKSAW,

OKAY Finally!!!!!!! I figured it out. When you save the MSIAfterburner.cfg File through Notepad, you have to make sure that you select "All file types" under the File name box. If you leave it at ".txt" for the file type then it won't work!

SO Dir-d, BEFORE you go and flash your Cards BIOS, do this.

1.) Open the MSIAfterburner.cfg with Notepad
2.) Change the "enable unofficial overclocking" Value of 0 to 1.
3.) Select "File" and select "Save as".
4.) When the save window pops up select "All Files" in the "Save as type" box and save!
It wil ask you to confirm the "Overwrite of the file" Select "yes".

You are done and should be able to Use ONLY MSI Afterburner to overclock your ATI Series Card past the max CCC Frequency!

Have fun!!!

THANKS MAN!



EDIT: New Water Parts Arrive on thursday! I"m still kind of even leary about running the water cooling with my system because of the leak that I saw in the top of the Rad. It looked like there was a tiny bit of corrosion there where I saw the water. Unless it was condensation but that deosn't make sense that it would only be in one spot...

So as you can see, I'm a noob. I've been trying to unlock my Phenom X2 550 with all the official bios but just can't get it to work for some reason. Could I get some help. I heard about the 1.5b3 bios and i was trying to DL it. However i get the 404 error when trying to download it from Xtreme forums. Could someone give me another link to the bios?
