how to know the volt limit for a card?

and if i flash the bios to MSI, does it make my card fully support volt control or there's still hardware limitation such as voltage controller, etc?

Well, I wouldn't go any higher than 1.3v 24/7. It's hard to say to you exactly what will damage your card, as we don't have time on our side. However ASUS uses this as the limitation on their warranty.
If you cannnot adjust the voltage on your card currently, it's either a BIOS limitation or you don't have the right PWM setup on that specific card. I know the MSI 5670 supports voltage control, but I would be a little uneasy recommending a BIOS flash to MSI unless you are very proficient with the flashing process. If the card differs from your card quite drastically it could brick the card.

Have you read step 2?

and change it to:
Code:
EnableUnofficialOverclocking= 1
This will allow us to bypass the limitation that stops you from passing the limits of ATi Overdrive (This tip was found on HWBot news).

What this man said. As an addition to that, some users may have to do the following -

On some systems you may get an error when you try to save the MSIAfterburner.cfg file. First make sure Afterburner is fully closed, including the icon in the system tray. If this does not help, you need to take ownership of the file before editing it. The easiest way to do this is to follow this guide. Once you have done that, right click on MSIAfterburner.cfg and click 'Take Ownership' from the context menu. Then open up the file in wordpad follow the procedure in Step 2 and save it. If you still receive an error message, describe it in a reply to this thread.

i know that msi uses custom layout for the pcb so there might be some hardware changes from reference card. is this what you mean by 'differs'? or it's something to do in the card's bios like clocks or volts

Yeah I meant hardware differences, such as using different RAM or VRMs. If they are different the flash will fail. As far as different clocks that shouldn't matter as long as the card to be flashed is stable at those clocks (if it isn't and it doesn't insta-crash you can always underclock it using software or RBE)

Hey I got a ATI Radeon HD 3200 intergated graphics card
at the moment this is what the clocks and memory thing shows



What do you guys think the max Core Clock and Memory clock can go to? because I'm scared to overclock and its my first attempt

My current temps for my GPU are like 45 degrees when I'm gaming.

Thanks for your time!
