If so, go to settings; under the "General" tab, make sure that you have "Start with Windows" checked.
Click ok to close the window.
Look under the "Profile: 1 2 3 4 5 save" area at the bottom of the main window.
You'll see "Apply overclocking at system startup".
Click on that and a red light will light up to the far left.
The settings that are active at shutdown will now be active at your next boot up.

MSI Afterburner will start minimized in your Notifications section so don't worry when you don't see it up.

I hope this helps.
Thanks it does!

I recently installed a Club3D HD5850 together with my HIS HD5870. The 5870 overclocks fine in MSI Afterburner, but when I change to the HD5850 it just says "0" in both mem and core clock. In the graph to the right it shows the default clocks though.

When I try to to change the clocks they just reset to 0 when I click apply. How do I fix this?!

(I'm not running them in CF, they're for bitcoin mining.)

so i been able to push my core clock to 885 (725 stock) so far, with no problems. but as soon as i touch the memory clock i get a flickering every 30 seconds or so or when i drag a window, or use a web browser, ect.

any suggestions?

5850 in 3way eyefinity 5760 X 1080

Hey, i'm htinking about overclocking my GPU, but I run some tests using the GPUTool and the temperature is quite high on the stock settings.



What might be the problem or should I try to OC at all if the temp is like this on the stock settings??

When running gputool on stock settings the two rings turn into mismatched pixels and disappear, the gui reports 33000 mismatched pixels. What do I do?

Do you get artifacting in games. Take any GPUTool results with a pinch of salt, it's artifact scanner isn't really designed for modern cards. You could also test stability with Furmark, but I find that a bit overkill.

you need to adjust your fan settings in Afterburner. I like to keep a buffer. For example,when the gpu temp is at 60c my fan speed is at 70%. My set up is like this

awesome thread !

a few questions

1. the GPU tool displays no values for me but the stability test works

2. when do you run the risk of killing your card ?

3. please update the guide by incorporating the ULPS registry fix for multi gpu users ( the BSOD on reboot left me sleepless )

4. is the fan curve behavior only for those who want to cut noise ? i like keeping those on auto
thank you again

1. Yeah that is normal behaviour on x64 operating systems. The stability test is still quite valuable, though it doesn't fully max out newer cards.

2. Up towards high voltages and high temps. Though saying that GTX590's seem to run the risk of going pop by just overclocking a little. Research the card and it's power circuitry before pushing a card high 24/7. A high voltage, high clock run should be perfectly safe for some benchmark suicide runs no matter the card. A modest overclock should be fine, if it's within the range of the manufacturers factory overclocked editions then even more so.

3. ULPS is a strange one. I run with ULPS enabled and have had no issues, though I know some people do. The energy saving is quite significant, particularly with older cards with high 2D clocks. I am working on a GPU troubleshooting guide at the moment, which will cover it, I may also add it in to this guide.

4. Fan curve is for people who want more control over the fan. Auto is usually a little conservative and you can get much better temps by setting it higher manually. If auto is fine for you then there is no need to bother

Hope this helps

thanks for replying

what about BSOD during the overclocking process , that's something i encountered today

I'll buy you coffee if i get rid of it
