How To: Overclock Your AMD / ATi GPU - Page 8

post #71 of 644
Everything was working well for me, then I changed a setting through GPU Tool and now I've sort of got the same problem again.

Now, whenever I start my comp from being shutdown, my GPU fan starts at like 27%. Before, it would start at stock fifty%, but now I think it is assigning a fan speed on the basis of my temps.
Also, my OC'd settings reset when I boot up, but then when I open CCC, all of a sudden my fan speed is back where I had set it to, and my OC settings are back where I set it to, not just in CCC but in GPUTool as well.

Any recommendations?

EDIT: Nevermind, I guess I'm just extremely stupid. Only now did I notice the option to "apply overclocking settings at startup". So I saved a profile, and checked off that box, and now I'm good!

When I saw this thread I was so happy because finally I could surpass the stock clocks, unfortunately for me no matter what I did enabling unofficial overclocking cause my system to freeze.

This seems like a great idea for most anyone trying to overclock beyond stock limits but for me I had to flash to the asus bios, which fortunately went well so my woes are over.

Thanks for the help though

GPU tool says Volt control isn't changeable on my XFX 4850, Is there a way for me to over volt it without a soldering iron?

Using this MSI afterburner screwed my system up so bad. I'd advise everyone to stay away from this. . had to go into safemode and disable CCC as a startup item because the second I started up I instacrashed. HT flood error. My CCC is still screwed bad, I think I am going to have to reinstall drivers. Reinstalling my drivers means redoing my entire setup... this really set me back : /

Going to try to just reinstall CCC itself and not my display drivers.

Maybe I am just overloading my brain with too much info while i wait for the ups guy, but i thought msi afterburner would still work regardless but the voltage controller would allow yo more OC headroom as, of coarse, you can adjust the voltage levels. Have I completely failed to understand this process?

BTW thanks for the guide, already printed out in case everything on my rig does work out.
As far as I know the 4850 does not have the correct VRM setup to allow voltage adjustment (you will be able to tell because the slider will be grayed out). You could try looking into a pencil mod for your card, but you need to be proficient with a multimeter and as yours looks to be non-reference you may have a hard time finding one.

Well, you could try a pencil mod, as above you will need to know how to use a multimeter and it's easier with a reference card. If your card is non-reference, these guys may help you find a pencil mod for it.

Sorry to hear that, I'm surprised that happened, as Afterburner is just a pretty skin for Rivatuner, a pretty stable tool. There could have been some kind of underlying driver issue there beforehand.

What is the max voltage and temperature to run in a 5870? i am now at 975core 1.26v and 63ºC in folding is this too much?

Temperatures, you can go up to 100*C but try your best to keep it below 80*C. As for voltage 1.275v is the most I would recommend for 24/7 folding, but 1.3v should be safe (ASUS cover this voltage under warranty).

Thank you for creating this thread. Very good stuff to save up for later. A definite help in understanding OCing better.

Will I be able to RMA it with XFX if I fry it? (With my luck I would Manage to make it teleport into a Puddle)
I have A DMM that has Ohm, Volt, Amp, and thermometer capibility and a mecanical Pencil, are these acceptable for a pencil mod?
