CCC as an overclocking tool

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Will it ever be updated to allow users to go over the specified limits?[core/memory]
I know MSI afterburner works well but it does not support powerplay functions well[I know it has 2d/3d settings and profiles but it certainly doesn't work as well as the traditional ATI powerplay function.]

I believe CCC has potential.

If you search around this forum a bit, someone posted a guide (reg hack I believe) on how to set the limits higher. No voltage adjustments though.

You can also edit the bios of your card using RBE to increase the limits put on it in overdrive.

Thank you. Does this preserve the original powersaving functions?

Non-reference unfortunately. I wasn't educated about reference vs non-reference when I bought my card.

Yup! Your card will still down clock when in 2D mode.

Shouldn't make a difference if its ref or non ref when your editing the bios. I've edited the bios of my non ref and ref cards no problems.

TL;DR = Can't get consistent stability results

Thanks guys for the registry link and the RBE bios hack. They work well.

What kind of OC can I expect with an XFX non-reference card?

I can never seem to find a stable point.

There are many errors I've faced. The hard lock-up[restart display driver] and the occasional flicker/line artifact.

To my understanding, the hard lockup is the absolute limit. It freezes windows and draws graphical distortions on the screen.

The line artifact is very hard to reproduce on multiple test runs[happens sometimes, sometimes doesn't] during my OC. Is there a way to quickly find the maximum OC on a card and get rid of the stutter/flickering effect?

You can do this with the registry hack.

How do you go about to install this registry hack?

I'm also interested in overclocking my 6950 vid card at some point as well as unlocking the extra shaders, however I would like to do it through CCC.
