    ^^ thanks for the nice explaination here helped me out with a few issues im having.

    Just related to that if one has used the -xcl command, does the change its made remain permanent untill you uninstall the driver ?
    If so is there a way to reverse the command once you have done it ??

    Yes, /XCL will generate VGA BIOS emulation registry entry and it will stay in the system even after uninstalling Afterburner until uninstalling or reinstalling the Catalyst driver.
    There is /RCL command line switch for Restoring Clock Limits if necessary. But the same can be done manually by searching and deleting all PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable registry entries.

    2X MSI HD 7970 @1150/1600
    Im struggling to get XCL to work with my second 7970.

    I have extended my desktop/windows to the second card, only my pc monitor attached to it. But after reboot using XCL, still the same, no changes.

    i also dont get any boot/post screen on my second 7970, no screen until windows log in..


    What am i doing wrong?

    Okay I figured out the Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR) issue. Make sure compatibility mode is off for both the launcher.exe and swtor.exe (right click and then go to properties) and it works again. Not sure how that got turned on but now that I turned it off for both exes I now have Afterburner back, woot!

    Is there a way to extend Afterburner's maximum memory overclock limit?

    After enabling unofficial overclocking the limit is now 1375 MHz (Stock for my 7970)

    I really hate having to use TriXX because of this, since TriXX won't let me Undervolt the 7970 (which doesn't need near the voltage that TriXX gives it)

    I installed Trixx, then uninstalled it. My limits have been removed.

    You have both monitors connected to the one card right?

    Hi Unwinder from down under :cheers:

    Does that infer that it's better to use XCL than the change to the .cfg file for the moment? Or use the cfg method but disable ULPS in the registry? Is either way "recommended" over the other.

    Thanks

    (While I've got you could you please remind me of the line to add to the cfg file to minimize on exit, I did search first but couldn't find it. Thank you.)

    XCL COMMAND FOR CROSSFIRE SETUPS

    Unfortunately thats almost the same case with me.
    I disabled crossfire, run xcl and GPU1 got the extended clocks in CCC.
    Then, I connected my monitor to GPU2, ran XCL command again and asked me to reboot,
    I reboot but still CCC limits for GPU2 are the same.

    Probably i do not extend my windows desktop to the second card properly?!

    Obviously I am doing something wrong here... :bang:

    Monitoring extrem tensions on HD7970

    Hello,

    When I run a 3D program (Battlefield 3, Occt), Afterburner shows me some weird tensions. Most of the time, tension is 990mV, but sometimes it jumps until 1496mV and then falls until 500m ! Nevertheless, 3D programs are perfectly stable, without any crash or artefact.

    What's happening ?
    Is my card really working between 500 and 1496mV ?

    Thank you

    It can only mean that you extend desktop on other head of _the_same_ GPU1 instead of GPU2.

    Reading context help of "Unlock voltage monitoring" before unlocking it is really good idea. We don't lock anything by default without a reason!
    And don't use multiple monitoring tools to avoid seeing I2C access collisions.

    Would it be possible to guide me on how can i extend my desktop to gpu2 in order to release higher clocks using XCL command?

    Perhaps for a developer of your experience this is obvious, but for me (and probably many others) these guidelines would be of great help.

    Setup is: 2X 7970 cards in crossfire with monitor connected in GPU#1.

    Thank you!

    Deactivate Crossfire and plug the 2nd Monitor to the the 2nd GPU ?

    Or just plug only one monitor to the 2nd Card, shouldn' that work too ?



    @ Unwinder
    "Multiple Monitoring Tools" So GPU-Z, GPUTool, Trixx.... but CCC doesn't count as "monitoring tool" right? but it still shows GPU clock & Temp....

    Thank you for your reply!
    I have tried both your suggestions but still the second gpu limit remains the same in CCC.

    I just tried a new method, by disabling crossfire, reboot, change the master GPU in bios to GPU2 put my monitor there, ran xcl command, but again no luck. It says to reboot the system but after reboot, clocks in ccc remain the same :bang:

    You have managed to make it work in your cards?
