    MSI AB is a great tool, unfortunately it doesn't support voltage control regarding my Sapphire 5850 XTrem.
    Maybe is there a way to do it? Thanks.

    Which version allows you to change the voltage?

    Its not the version so much as it is does your card have the voltage controller
    to be able to do it with software.

    Some cards are not hardware capable to be able to do this.
    Don't know if yours is one of them or not.

    Try the conf tricks or research it as to your specific card and voltage control.

    Later:)

    Kind of dumb question and I apologize if it has been answered before, but what exactly does the Power Limit % slider do? Does it just allow the GPU more power should it require it, and should be cranked all the way up, based off wattage? Or is it potentially dangerous and should be turned up notch by notch.

    How do i install new Drivers when i have Afterburner installed? Uninstalling Afterburner first and do all settings again? Or is there an easy way?

    Leave AB as is...

    Uninstall driver -> Restart@Safe Mode -> Driver Cleaner/Fusion/whatever suits you -> Reboot -> Install new driver

    AB should be right there with all your settings.

    When overclocking AMD cards, do you overclock the core first then the memory?

    I believe that's what I did with the NVIDIA i had

    Hi guys.

    I was hoping you guys could give me a hand. I have two 6850 power edition cards in crossfire. Now I decided to put them under some water cooling. And so far they are running really nicely. I was doing 1000mhz core @ 1.3v and 1200 memory @ +50mv. Temps used to be 90C and 82C on the cards. Now that they are swimming they are down to 38c and 35C at the same speeds. Now I been trying my hand at a higher OC. IO got them to 1100 on the core (have'nt tried the mem yet) but it crashes. I am using MSI Afterburner and I would like to know if there is a way to volt these cards beyond 1.3v. I understand the risks with OC'ing and understand what could happen.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    for a overclock of 1120/1430
    right now I have it set at +25 ,Is that enough? or too much?

    @ pipes:
    1. close MSI-Afterburner if it´s running,
    2. open the .cfg file -> modify -> save,
    3. open MSI-Afterburner again....
    4. Finish!

    Replacing Amd r9 295x2 radiator

    Hello could some one guide me to a thread similar to this "Replacing Amd r9 295x2 radiator"
    I wish to change the stock radiator, with 240mm or bigger one. Has anyone done it before?

    The reason is that it s summer now and i have a room temp of 29-31 C, i can see my second Gpu thermal throttling (810-950Mghz) every time i play witcher 3 or Dirt raly 4 etc. I m using the easy mod fan regulator and a push/pull of the stock fan and and an Noctua.(also i ve change the thermal paste quite often)
    Any tips tricks? willing to try anything. But i don t have the money for an costume loop with watter-block.
