XFX 5870 Won't oc in Afterburner.. Bios Flash?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just traded my 5970 for this xfx 5870 referance + cash..

It's pretty cool I guess, I needed the money for school so i can't complain..

The problem is, if I move the slider on core/mem clock in afterburner, they just go spring right back.. I have oc'd it to 900/1300 in ati overdrive but I can't go any higher with that utililty.

Will I really need to flash the asus bios?

Go into C> ProgramFiles> MSIAfterburner> open up MSIAfterburner.cfg and Change "Unofficialoverclocking" from 0 to 1.

Thats what I was assuming.. however, when I previously used that config edit.. It would crash my system on overclock attempts with my 5970.. here goes nothing

That setting is right in the settings, too. No need for config file editing.
