    Ouch, my bad, I totally forgot to add ;OEM header to instructions in that post. I'll edit it now, thanks.

    It's ok bub, shows you I'm not the average user and perhaps might give you more confidence in me if I seemed a little harsh before, I apologize if I did.

    Thank you for your hard work seriously unwinder.

    Thanks Matt, and yeah, ive always just used Unofficial Overclocking Mode on WithoutPowerPlay Support, since ive been using it with my 290X (doesn't work on the Furys that though) :)

    Think im sorted now, got both cards going to my profile clocks, i just put the Unofficial Overclocking Mode back to Disabled (as did have it on the With PowerPlay Support instead) :p

    It doesn't apply to voltage control only. Active ULPS state puts more limitations on hardware control. For example, unofficial overclocking is also not applied to GPUs while they are in ULPS state and even some official ADL hardware controls (e.g. power limit control) can be ignored while GPU is in ULPS.

    Yep im sorted.

    Both cards going to my profiles clocks now, with the Unofficial Overclocking Mode left Disabled. :)

    EDIT: Only wanted to up my cores slightly above stock, so i could pop the Crimsons back on and get no more clock bouncing, as should stick to my profiles.

    Unwinder and Matt.
    I already let you know about this but here I am again.
    If I install afterburner, my scores are lower.
    I can basically say, installing msi afterburner slows my pc by 1% as can be seen from the results.
    Look(left-NO AB, right-AB installed)
    http://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/6734490/fs/6734662

    Any thoughts on this ?

    Afterburner as any application you have "steals" cpu cycles.

    Periodic activity such as hardware monitoring and software fan control is not free in terms of performance hit and it is supposed to eat some CPU time. Performance hit directly depends on amount of GPUs, hardware polling rate, fan speed update period and amount of monitored parameters. All that is documented in context help of EACH option affecting that, and MSI AB comes with built-in performance profiler, allowing you to see how much CPU time is consumed by polling hardware sensors, updating fan speeds or rendering monitoring history graphs in realtime. Performance profiler data is displayed in the status area of hardware monitoring window, which can be activated via "Show status" command of context menu.

    so if i turn off the monitoring once i know i'm golden with my settings and just use afterburner for the fan curve, i should be better off and afterburner won't need those monitoring graphs to do fan control cuz that is going off of its own thing entirely, right?

    EDIT: cuz i did a video about this focusing on counter strike players - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdQ_sta1CSQ

    If you don't have 4x GPU system with 50+ active graphs monitored on extreme polling rate like 100ms, you'll hardly see a difference. I'd say that it is OK once you enable status bar and see there that sensor polling time lie within 10-20ms range.

    There a few things you can do , MSI AB is very configurable .
    Here few things to try, Once you have it setup the way you want (OC, fan speed) you can either lower polling rates on monitoring (default is 1000ms/1sec), you could raise it to for example 2000ms.
    You could also remove monitoring graphs you really don't need both in OSD and monitor .
    Lastly there is polling rates in fan setup and you could try having a stair step type point curve by double clicking 2x on image . that helps with resources .
    You will need to add more points if you have very basic curve .

    Anyway, try it an see, enable "show status" on graph too as Unwinder mentioned.

    All that said I never noticed any slow downs with AB .

    I also had to modify;

    Code:
    ; MSI GTX980Ti Lightning
    to this;

    Code:
    ;MSI GTX980Ti Lightning
    and then it worked :).

    Since RTSS v6.4.0 , DOTA 2 will crash a few second after loading into the main menu.

    It doesn't crash if RTSS is started after DOTA 2 is loaded.


    Thanks for the updated btw, your work is appreciated.
