Iv tried to work it out but failed.
And anyone know any other programs I could Overclock with?
Msi Afterburner dosent seem to work and Asus SmartDoctor Never saves all the settings, Sometimes it saves just the core clock and not the volts while other times it saves the volts and not the speeds. Other times it saves nothing.
Aint no Smartdoctor!
Help anyone?

*NOTE* don't use smartdoctor e_e

Thanks, but do you know if the Asus 5850 Top is a Non-reference card?
Cause I have been tring to use Msi afterburner, But no voltage controll. But I was told that it only works for Reference cards.

Did you enable voltage control in the options of Afterburner?

Voltage control only works for reference cards, yes, which look like this;



With the exhuast cooler.

The top;



From what I can see, is non reference, which normally means no voltage control.

It isn't reference. on the topic of voltage control, i think asus ships its own software (smart doctor) that lets you tweak the voltage (not certain but i think it does).

Not a reference. Asus Smartdoctor is a pretty crappy program, but it works. If it has limited core/mem clocks just use CCC to set those, and SM just for the voltage.

About the not saving, are you sure you've ticked 'use these settings at reboot'?

Asus Top 5850 has voltage control but isn't a reference design.

MSI Afterburner doesn't work with your card, you'll need smart doctor or mod your bios with more voltage and use CCC for the core and memory speeds.

Yes I did tick that box, trust me it stuffs up like all hell this program.
Thats why I was asking what I can use and if my card was reference, cause im a bit noob!

Thanks Thats what I do now but smart doctor dosent seem to save settings very well, And I have crossfire so It wont let me change volts on each card on its own. I have to take one out and do them by thereself for max OC, I am planning on going full water for my system so I just really wanted a better program, And I still do!

You can actually enable voltage control for the 5850 DirectCu.

Try this:

ProgramFiles\\MSIAfterburner\\Profiles\\VEN_1002&D EV_6899&SUBSYS_03481043&REV_00&BUS_1&DEV_0&FN_0

make sure you have Admin rights to edit. In this file you need to add

[Settings]
uP6208_Detection = 1

It should look like this (but ignore the Profile2 setting, that's my overclock, you can leave it out if you don't have any profiles set up, or set it to the default clocks):

[Startup]
CoreClk=0
MemClk=0
FanSpeed=0
CoreVoltageBoost=-1
[Profile1]
CoreClk=725000
MemClk=1000000
FanSpeed=1
CoreVoltageBoost=0
[Profile2]
CoreClk=850000
MemClk=1124000
FanSpeed=1
[Settings]
uP6208_Detection = 1

Then save the file, and re-start MSI AB. You should now have (slightly limited) voltage control.

From a very old thread.

The interface blows and it has a bug where it will not save voltage settings on reboot.

As others have stated: No the Asus DirectCu and TOP are not reference, however the DO have voltage control.

And with version 2.0.0 of Afterburner, the line needs to be

Code:

Code:
[B]VDDC_[/B]uP6208_Detection = 46h
as stated by the developer of Afterburner. And yes, it's limited to 100mV increase, so that's about 1.218V.
Bingo.

It's pretty inaccurate with voltage adjustments / increments and I believe it can be a real PITA to get the settings to stick as well.

I think so, using only Afterburner. If I need more I volts, I use Smart Doc to change the voltage and Afterburner to set frequencies. So far it works fine, but seems like people are saying Smart Doc has problems. I'm still looking to see if there is more info about it.
