My first driver or my MSI 4830 OC was from it's CD.
It was 8.10 I think... I OCed it till 730/1140 and got it stable.
Then I upgraded my Catalyst and I can't OC anymore!


I knew already that overdrive won't work but even with
RivaTuner it doesn't!
When I apply my clocks, in GPU-Z's frist page it changes
but in Sensor tab it is still 585 / 900 (default clocks).
Same with RivaTuner's hardware monitor.

Do I just have to re install my old Catalyst??

I think you're talking about the power saving feature. It's in 2D mode right now.

You need to stress the video card and see if it applies the settings for 3D mode, so turn on a game or [email protected] (Something that makes your video card work hard) and your clocks should apply and you'll get your real ones..

tl;dr: Stress the video card and see if your clocks change.

if riva doesn't work with newer drivers it might not be supported with that version,get the latest riva tuner and see if that helps.

Same card, same problem with the newest Catalyst drivers. Drivers from the CD are working. Have to try 8.11 but they should work too.

Ey, I have the same prob as you. I see you probably updated from 8.10 (CD driver) to 9.2, am I right? Well 9.2 won't let us OC, either in CCC or rivatuner, and it sucks. But I don't think 9.2 has any major fixes/upgrade so it's alright.

Just revert back one step to 9.1 (I'm currently using right now) and use rivatuner 2.23 or 2.24. You should be fine in OCing again
