Well, MSI Afterburner won't work with my my GPU for some reason, I use ATITool...

Hey Guys,

I have an EAH5850 TOP Asus. My entire rig is air cooled.

I was able to reach 950/1250 @1.255v(Smart Doctor) with max Temps at
65c. Volts lower than this at this speed caused artifacts.

Stock speed is 765/1125 @ 1.118v.

My goal was 975 core but even with 1.349v it kept causing artifacts.

So is there any big difference between 950 core vs 975 core?
If I decide to go water cooling, will I be able to use lower volts? or will it allow me to use higher volts safely?

Or should I RMA the card?

Using submissions on HWBot:
Heaven benchmarks shows about 60 pts difference: http://hwbot.org/searchResults.do?di...peId=&offset=0
3DMark11 benchmarks shows about 1100 pts difference: http://hwbot.org/searchResults.do?di...peId=&offset=0

Depending on how good the watercooling set up is, it just helps to bring down the temps a lot more so that you can OC more without overheating the card. As for safe voltages, I'm unsure but HWBot do show people OC'ing to about 1075 on H2O: http://hwbot.org/hardware/videocard/radeon_hd_5850

You now need to set:
UnofficialOverclockingMode = 1

AND

UnofficialOverclockingEULA = I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it

It should be in the MSIAfterburner.cfg file.
I did this, and every time I try to overclock it crashes. What am I doing wrong? I'm trying to overclock 2 6970's

What crashes? Just Afterburner or what? If Afterburner, I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling again. Then re-do drivers as well.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. My computer crashes and restarts. It happens if I try to change anything over the stock values (even voltage). Now if I change the unofficialoverclock back to 0 I can max it out in catalyst control center and Msi Afterburner to 950/1450 with no increase in voltage.

I'm also using AMD 11.4 drivers. I'll try reinstalling both the drivers and Afterburner

Thanks Krusher, I did more bench testing with GPU OCCT and discovered my error free clock settings were lower. So now my speeds are 922/1200 @ +125mV(1.243v).
