New to ATI

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I just switched over from Nvidia (9400GT) to ATI. I picked up a pair of 4870 of my cousin for $100. Now I'm looking to overclock them, I downloaded ATI tools but it doesn't work. Doesn't find my cards, no setting. Can I use Rivatuner? What do I use to check to see if its stable?

Use MSI Afterburner for OC. (MSI Afterburner is partially made by the Rivatuner guy).

MSI Afterburner, works wonders. It also has a built in "Kombuster" which is a stress tester, that will sort out to see if they're stable or not. You could also use "FurMark". They do the same thing in terms of stress testing.
