It's in your MSI Afterburner folder.

Ex: C:\\Program Files\\Msi Afterburner

On a side note, I was able to hit 950/1250 at 1.21v when I had my 5870. Temps were pretty decent (~70c under load).

I have not installed Afterburner since when I switched to my GTX580. I found this thread on Guru3d, this should work.

Quote:
To enable the unofficial overclocking in this version it is necessary to edit the MSIAfterburner.cfg file located in the installation directory of AfterBurner (typically Program Files (x86) MSI Afterburner):


You need to alter the following:

Seek UnofficialOverclockingEULA field and add following text:
I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
Set UnofficialOverclockingMode to 1 to keep PowerPlay active (may not work on old ASICs), 2 to traditionally disable PowerPlay or to 0 to temporary disable unofficial overclocking path

Using the unofficial overclock method opens up more freedom in terms of voltages and clock ranges, it however also can open a can of worms in terms of stability or weird issues.

Seems they've changed it a bit since I've run an ATI setup.

Although, it's still there. Look for this:

Quote:
[ATIADLHAL]
UnofficialOverclockingEULA=
UnofficialOverclockingMode= 0
AccessibilityCheckingPeriod= 0
Change UnofficialOverclockingMode from a 0 to a 1, save, restart Afterburner, profit.

My 5870 did 1000mhz core at 1.1875v, but it was one helluva special card.

Good luck!
