Overclocking in BootCamp Mac

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey, I have a Ati Radeon 4670 and want to overclock. Getting past introductions lol. Ive been playing crysis over in bootcamp on windows vista and I can managa playing All very high except for shader at high and get around a consistent or solid 25 fps. Which as we all know in crysis is pretty smooth due to good frame blending. But I would like to be able to play with a fairly higher fps and im having trouble over-clocking. Im just gonna stick to MSI Afterburner and GPU Tool. So I downloaded the latest drivers over at ATi and then I downloaded the GPU Tool and MSI Afterburner. Was they were finished installing I opened up GPU Tool first. Sadly though it was extremely laggy, the clocks were at 0 meaning it probably couldnt do something (I have no idea) even though it showed at the top my gpu which is a 4670. So no response from it. So then I go over to MSI Afterburner and it did infact have the name of my GPU at the top which once again is a 4670. But Shader, Core voltage, and Fan speed were all locked. Core Clock and Memory clock were slide able but both were already at the max which was 680 and 790. So really is there any fix to these issues or are there any other overclockers that will work?

1: As far i remember, 4670 did NOT have voltage adjustments
2: The shader speed is locked with core speed in ATI cards/chips
3: You also may not be able to change fan speed as well.

Good tip before overclocking: Take the card out of your rig, blow out all the dust, make sure it IS ALL OUT, put it back in, get a decent monitoring programs (HWMonitor) to watch your temperatures.

4: Also, if your looking for higher frame rates, you can lower the detail settings, or raise your resolution.

Dude im not stupid :*( I know how to get better fps obviously or I wouldnt have turned shaders down. I said I wanted to have higher fps with high shaders. I know pretty much as much as an average man on overclock.net. Im not just a casual mac user.

Try Rivatuner, or PowerStrip to Overclock. Or you can go into the program files, find the config file for Afterburner, open it up, go to"EnableUnofficialOverclocking" and set the value to "1", and save it.

EDIT: Also, im going to ignore your little "Im not stupid" speech. We know your not. You wouldnt be here if you were stupid.

I said that just because telling someone to turn down settings is one of the most obvious things ive ever heard. Even if you didnt mean it like that I was just putting that out there. Anyways rivatuner doesnt work either as of what I know. But ill try it again. Any other suggestions?

I understand that it sometime hard to convey intention through a wall of text. But I honestly did not see anything in the post that would imply the OP to be 'stupid' or otherwise. I think it is good that he is listing out everything that is obvious one should do because I know from personal experience that when you are focused on trying to achieve something, sometime you completely forget/miss something that is very obvious.
Again, with utmost respect to the OP, I am merely trying to imply that there is nothing in this post to get offended about.

Well ive decided anyhow that im going to buy a 6970 and then a 6990 for a pc build. Macs arent really for gaming even if you do manage fairly high end pc fps in some games. So im gonna go tri fire. So please dont reply to this thread. Ill make another thread about the trifire idea once this one seeps down into the bottom of the topic.
