MSI Afterburner Download Here
post #13 of 20
Thread Starter 
First Step:
I downloaded Afterburner and ran a series of tests with it and to my conclusion this program in tandem with my current GPU is not as good as SmartDoctor would have been had it worked properly. With Msi Afterburner i cant adjust my memory Clock past 2670Mhz which is really bad considering that this program is now underclocking my Memory by near 2000Mhz however i can still adjust my Core Clock and voltage like i would have.

Second Step:
Played Crysis,Crysis 2,WoW, and BFBC2 with mediocre results. With the partial overclock i gained 1~3Fps Gains once View Distances were dropped to medium or lower but on Stock settings without Msi Afterburner i gained 5~10FPS gains with everything on ultra...

The Positives:
Did not corrupt my graphic drivers
Advanced smart fan control
Program interface looks awesome

The Negatives:
Partial Oc created FPS Issues in games

Final Result:
Removal of Msi Afterburner due to Frame Rate Drops

I am now awaiting customer support from AsusTeK regarding this issue
However if anyone has tips/tricks or ideas please continue posting as this would be very much appreciated. And thanks to all the other posters before this for your helpful posts

Other Thoughts

*Possible Driver issue with this line of card
*Possible defect with my graphics unit

Oh you guys gotta see this... (Look at the pictures i uploaded)
This stumps me!

Pointer 1:
Note the memory clock: 2052Mhz (Supposed to be 4104Mhz)

Pointer 2:
Note the AsusTeK GPU Bios Update error

Pointer 3:
Note the error with Nvidia Driver 267.91 (This driver is for GTX550 Series)

The bread crumbs are adding up...

2052MHz is the correct memory clock, that's what it should be in AB too. It doubles to give the correct clocks. If you actually ran 2670MHz in AB you were actually running your memory at 5340Mhz, which is a massive overclock.

Also 267.91's aren't designed for that card, they only show up if I select GTX 590 on the Nvidia site. Therefore download the 270.51's as they should work fine.

Uninstall Smartdoctor and use MSI Afterburner, its a great program and works great for basically everyone on OCN. Worth getting the newest beta here too.

Uninstall your current drivers, restart, install the 270.51's using the clean install option and then see if it works fine.

I had no idea my memory clock was displayed like that in Afterburner, The thought had crossed my mind but i wasn't sure. Thanks for the tip

Oh and the Nvidia driver 267.91 was accessed by searching for drivers on their website for the GTX550 Lineup

But this still doesn't explain the FPS drop when I overclock with Afterburner...
Maybe its because I Oc'd too far, ive heard that Ocing can sometimes have an adverse affect on your system if not adjusted correctly. So ill try again tonight when i get home from work Ty for the help.

AsusTeK support just responded to my Technical Inquiry and replied the Exact Following:

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you for contacting ASUS Customer Service.
Please remove the GamerOSD for a try first. If it still so, try to exchange the item with your vendor. If this is not possible, you will need to contact our RMA department for assistance.
-------------------
As we all know here, Uninstalling Gamer-OSD did not help so i am returning this card to newegg and am going to get a refund on the item and get another card for now ill be switching to my Backup card... Asus Engt240

I havent decided what card to get next so ill post up my Choices below:

Choice One

Choice Two

Choice Three

I should Receive my new card in about 1~2 Weeks cause im waiting for my RMA Process to go through

I got to thinking today at work what a hassle this RMA Process is going to be and immediately got to work with my card when i got home.

I had an amazing idea hit me "Physx" my old GT240 would make an excellent partner for my GTX550 Ti and set to work installing them and i downloaded another version of Asus Smartdoctor meant for a GTX 460 and Oc'd without a Hitch But ultimately went for MSI's Afterburner with its awesome looking interface, Multi-Gpu support, profiles, and smart fan control.

~GTX550Ti~
Overclock: Engine: 1102Mhz / Shader: 2204Mhz / Memory: 4816Mhz (Stable)
---------------
~GT-240~
Overclock: Engine: 702Mhz / Shader: 1710Mhz / Memory: 2060Mhz (Stable)

I am having no current issues with my setup and am thoroughly pleased and will be ordering another GTX550Ti to run SLI

Every brand of computer hardware out there is designed to operate in the way it was designed for, it doesn't matter if its a Graphics card, CPU, or Hard-Drive
as long as you choose your hardware right, your chances for failure and(or) Bad configurations are slimmed considerably. Albeit there is still the ever Inevitable chance of DOA products, The companies manufacturing process is to blame or a bad part on the Unit in question that was accidentally used in the process. Just because one card is having troubles doesn't mean the brand as a Whole is bad...I could go out right now and buy an "EVGA" mainstream brand GPU and it be DOA but that doesn't mean the company is horrible and i should never buy from there again.

I don't try to come off as defensive at all, I just try to keep an open mind when choosing my products and not judge a good company from a bad one based on a few random peoples reviews on their dead or malfunctioning products.

------------
Although I would have to admit their Grammar could use a little work, or quite possibly their translation software...this makes them as a whole seem new to the hardware business.
