MSI 5700XT - OC'ing getting started?

So I have pretty much finished up overclocking of my ram and cpu and am now moving on to my MSI 5700XT (reference design).
Just an fyi, this is my first AMD GPU ever. So I am very unfamiliar with the software I should be using for it. Took me forever to find WattMan.

Is it better to use WattMan or MSI Afterburner?

I have the EK-Vector water block on it. So temperatures are around 30c idle.
I have applied 50% power limit.
Adjusted the Frequency/Voltage scale to [email protected] and I have not touched the ram yet.

Running a benchmark like Unigine Heaven it shows the Current Power at 204w and temperature at 39c. Junction Temperature is around 60c.
The card held steady at 2086Mhz on the core and only went lower once during the benchmark run.

I have tried using MorePowerTool from Igor's Lab. But I can't figure out how to load my SPPT into it. It wants a bios file. However I am unsure how to get one except through gpu-z. Loading that file did allow numbers to be adjusted. However after saving and then doing a reboot no new options or limits were available to me.

Any info on how to use MorePowerTool or anything to adjust to get a higher overclock would be appreciated.

So playing around.... I read about DDU. Suppose I should have seen this as it's in the Igors Lab thread. But I ran this several times and then reinstalled the latest drivers. Also, not while having the computer connected to the internet.
I still had the issue where MorePowerTool wanted a bios rom file. So I saved one to My Documents using GPU-Z. I selected it from MorePowerTool adjusted a few items just as a test. rebooted... And well, it works! woot

After the reboot and going into WattMan I am able to select a Power Limit up to 99% instead of 50. And it has the higher voltage and gpu mhz available I entered in.
