Overclocking 5970+5870 (TriFire)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Im having issues getting anything to overclock with my new setup. I really would like to OC my 5970 to match the 5870's base clocks but can't seem to find a utility that can see all 3 GPU's. Is there a program that I should be using?

Ive tried ASUS Smart Doctor, MSI Afterburner, and ATI Tool. Is there something that I am missing?

The GPU's I have are in my sig. Thanks in advance!

msiAB can overclock all (3) gpus at the same time. See your options to change which gpu you want to address.

Well, I got everything working. I had to upgrade my version of MSI Afterburn and can now OC all 3 GPU's. I am currently running 900/1200 on all GPU's at 1.15v for the 5970 and stock voltage for the 5870.
