Maybe I'm missing something. I just downloaded MSI Afterburner and there is no .cfg file anywhere inside the folder. I'll just ignore the step for modding it and press on.

Just FYI.

It's the new Afterburner 1.6, it doesn't seem to have a MSIAfterburner.cfg file like the old versions do, and unofficial overclocking is enabled by default.

I did, and it's not. Also, I have v 1.8.2. I don't see the adjustment sliders like OP has on the screenshot. I understand that I'm quite noobish at this, but the apps I have don't match anything in the guide.

i r quite confuz-ed.

Here's what I see on my screen. Nary a slider in sight. What is a helpless, ignernt newb to do?

That's FurMark, not Afterburner. You either downloaded wrong or just launched the wrong app.

Ok.I followed your link and selected "Download MSI Afterburner", which I did. I see the screen shots on their website. My app says Kombustor and looks nothing like them. Still confused.

----------
Update: I'm officially an idiot now. I totally overlooked the the OTHER file in the zipped folder. Yknow, the one that says "afterburner" in the name. geesh.
