Asus 6870 DirectCU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a Asus 6870 I am unable to increase the voltage in MSI Afterburner or in Asus Smart Doctor, I have applied the .cfg file fix in Afterburner. I am still unable to modify the setting.

I noticed there was possibly the need for a bios update
http://support.asus.com/download/dow...elname=EAH6870 Series&SLanguage=en-us

But its listed as serial #'s, On the box I have a different serial # and on the card I cant find either the one on the box or anything similar to what they have posted.

Any Ideas?

Just making sure; you did unlock the voltage control in the Afterburner settings correct?

Try using Catalyst Control Center. Go to the Performance tab and then unlock the AMD overdrive function by the little key icon on top of the tab. I used that to OC my ASUS 6870 Direct CU. See if that works for you. I left my voltages as they were (1.2V) and just pumped the core and memory frequencies.

Any ideas? This is very annoying since I have seen reviews of this card hitting 1100 mhz with a voltage bump!

Thanks Franny this worked for a slight OC, but I would still like to bump my voltage it was advertised to be able to increase it.

just for archive reference I have resolved this issue.

I found a fix on the asus forums. You have to use the Asus driver and cant use the ATI driver. Also the only program that you can use is asus smartdoctor. Which is really annoying because I love MSI afterburner!
