    I would like to report a bug with MSI Afterburner.

    At first I thought this was a corrupt driver issue but the same problem occurred after reinstalling Windows completely with fresh drivers so this is definitely an MSI Afterburner bug.

    I have two cards which are NOT in a crossfire setup.

    GPU1 = Sapphire 7850
    GPU2 = Sapphire 7970
    Catalyst 12.4

    When first installing MSI Afterburner, everything works and both can be overclocked. I enabled the Extend Official Overclocking Limits & Unlock Voltage options only.

    Once the system rebooted I found that the 7850 could overclock OK, however the values of the 7970 card were all zeroed out and nothing could be done with this card.

    When each card was installed separately in the computer, the Extend Official Overclocking Limits option works. I dug a little deeper and obtained the PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable registry key for each card.

    I reinstalled both cards which again crippled the 7970, I looked at the PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable registry key for both cards and found the 7850 Powerplay table is ALSO used for the 7970.

    I created a manual registry key which replaces all the incorrect PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable entries for the 7970.

    I rebooted and can now overclock both cards :) Hopefully the MSI Afterburner guys can reproduce the problem as I surely can't be the only one affected.

    These are the PP_PhmSoftPowerPlayTable keys I had to replace for the 7970.
