I use MSI Afterburner to OC, but everytime I change the clock speed and hit apply, everything froze

any idea what to do?

Are you raising the voltage with afterburner as well? You have to up the voltage to get much overclock out of the 5970's. I flashed mine to 950/1200 @1.2V My card isn't stable at 1000/1300 1.35V but a small percentage are

It is a lot more convenient to flash the BIOS instead of using software because raising the voltage with software isn't carried over on restarts. You can imagine what happens if you forget to reset your clocks and your 5970 boots with high clocks and low voltage.

What are your iddle and load temps?

I would be careful and lower that OC...

That is not really a safe OC for 24/7, and can degrade ur card fast.
