Save it. Exit afterburner and restart it.

Even with an MSI card I still had to change that.
Thanks for the tip +Rep

I'm able to tweak the voltage in ASUS Smart Doctor but I'm limited to 1000MHz.
I wonder if there's a way to go past 1000 in this program also. I can finally acheive a 20% OC if possible.

I could be wrong... but can you up the voltage in Smart Doc, apply it then change the speeds in afterburner? I think I did that on a HD5850 once.

Thx for the +rep

I tried but my PC froze. I can't run both at the same time, the fan speed goes crazy when both are running too.

As for the temp @ load never goes above 61c at stock and 68c @1000MHz.
Fan doesn't go above 50%.

That sucks!!!! I personally never liked smart doc. Afterburner is too easy but atleast you can change the V.

Change the thermal grease. I never went past 58c in vantage with fan at 70%.
Anything over 50% is load as crap on these cards. It is loader than my Evga GTX 295 was.

Room temps were 24-25c. I also opened up the card and added TX-4 on gpu.
Cool. 58c is very impressive. And I have a CoolerMaster Megaflow in my case too.

Thanks. It's running great so far. Twice as fast as my 5770 was.

The black one with a short cord is passive mini to full size DP. The large black cord is just a standard HDMI 1.4 cable.
