That's odd, are you sure? I have the latest version and it's under right under [ATIADLHAL].
If you still can't find it, post your .cfg and let us see.
You could also try reinstalling the application ofc.

Thanks man, downloaded the old version first for some dumb reason.

Great tut. Just a suggestion - I find those little spinning donuts to push the newer GPUZ/VRAM enough for a true stability test.

I found if you want to be 3d FPS game stable you need to run the stability test found in OCCT.

Genius guide. I've just finished installing my 5870 with a waterblock and it's hitting 36 degrees on furmark - but it just crashed after a while on a 980 core speed - so I need some volts.

So - what's the consneus on safe volts??

edit on 1.25 and it seems happy with 990. I'll let it run a while

I sem to be soft crashing at 1275v and 1070hz, so dropping down to 1050 - which is not bad at all and far better than I was lead to expect.

We'll see how the stability testing goes. But I'm certainly stable at 1ghz.


Bah I was using furmark. GPU tool is far far better, and was shouwing instabilities far quicker.

But 1030 seems sound.

Easiest overclock ever. Thanks a lot for the guide

Thank you very much CoffeeJunky!!! I would always get the denied error when saving the value in wordpad, but now it's all changed and I'm ready to oc my 5870. I'd give you +rep but there isn't an option for it. Regardless, thank you again!

Ok this is insane.

I was thinking that my system was tunning a bit quiet - it turns out that no wonder I was crashing after 2h bfbc2 - I had dislodged my radiator's fan connection when I installed my 5870.

So now I furmark at 40 - with the vddc's also at 40 at stock. the vddci hits 47.

Right- so now let's see what I can do.....!

No matter how I use any of the oc programs you have suggested, I follow the instructions to the T and still my pc crashes on reboot. I have the most updated drivers and bios for my XFX 5850 card. My clocks now are 775/1125. They are quite decent, but every time I try to use all the different programs to go beyond the clocks in ATI overdrive I get a blue screen or lockups. I did everything you said and still no luck.

I'm having some issues

I've got a PowerColor 5670 1GB, but I'm using Eyefinity for 2 displays, so it uses 400mhz in 2D mode instead of the usual 157mhz.

Whenever I up the clocks from stock in either CCC or Afterburner, the card seems to forget it needs 400mhz to run both displays which makes both monitors flicker oddly.

Any help anyone? I'm new to all this

IIRC, this is a fairly common problem. Have you tried the latest drivers? If that doesn't fix the issue then I think you're simply gonna have to wait for ATi to fix it.

Edit: Or you could always force the card to run higher clocks 24/7.

That's how you do that with CCC. Note that the values in that post are for a 5770, but I think you get the idea.
