MSI Afterburner will tell you the clocks while gaming.

You will have enable the settings in Afterburner so the clocks will show up on the OSD but nothing besides that.

i can tell you one thing if it were running at idle clocks you will definitely notice it. those bugged idle clocks can't handle dual monitors.

True. 157/300 can't even handle my desktop.

Why don't u let it down-clock when not in use? It saves power and stuffs
. Otherwise, if you want, you can make a profile in AfterBurner with custom idle clocks.

TTBOMK, the only way is to mod the bios using RBE and flash your modded bios to the card with upped 2D clocks. If you poke around the forums at techpowerup.com (where RBE is hosted) you should be able to find some info.

Here's an old thread over there I participated in a while back ... where I think the subject of changing default 2d clocks was discussed:

RBE, tried on 5850 -- No harm done, but didn't recognize driver. Ideas? - techPowerUp! Forums

There is. Open CCC and go into Options > Profile > Profile Manager. Create a new profile select the "all Catalyst Control Center settings, then Activate & Close.
Now go into C:\\Users\\AkatsukiKira\\AppData\\Local\\ATI\\ACE\ \Profiles and open your new profile.xml with notepad
Find the following lines

Code:
Code:
        <Feature name="CoreClockTarget_0">
          <Property name="Want_0" value="x" />
          <Property name="Want_1" value="x" />
          <Property name="Want_2" value="72500" />
        </Feature>
        <Feature name="MemoryClockTarget_0">
          <Property name="Want_0" value="x" />
          <Property name="Want_1" value="x" />
          <Property name="Want_2" value="100000" />
        </Feature>
        <Feature name="CoreVoltageTarget_0">
          <Property name="Want_0" value="x" />
          <Property name="Want_1" value="x" />
          <Property name="Want_2" value="1088" />
And change them all to your desired clocks. Want_0 is 2d clock. Want_1 is low power 3d and Want_2 is high power 3d.

Now save and activate the profile once again in CCC. And you're done.

i just wanted to know in case i decide to try 2 or 3 monitors some time in the future. i noticed you guys said it couldn't handle your set ups. i run a 28'' monitor and have no problems.

one more thing i noticed though.i guessing i cant control shader clocks?

the msi tool is awsome. it let me know my card is powering up the way it should. now the only thing to do is let the drivers mature. running beta 10.3 now.

10.4 drivers are suppose to remedy the flickering issue. No you cannot adjust shader clocks for the ATI cards

Shader clocks run at the same clocks as the core, can't change it I'm afraid.
