    Hi, I'm a noob to pc gaming but just built a new pc and tried to use afterburner to adjust fan speeds etc although msi afterburner is not working for me, maybe my components are not compatible or something but if any of you guys know the answer then feel free to let me know, I'll post a prntscr so you have some clue as to what I'm talking about then let me know please, this could be a long road ahead Update, won't let me post screenshot as I'm a nub although basically it just doesn't let me adjust the slider things etc

    My components are:
    8gb corsair vengeance ram
    i3 6100 cpu
    asus b150 pro-gaming mobo
    Sapphire RX470 4gb gpu
    corsair vs550w psu
    crucial mx300 525gb ssd

    A guy told me to click "extend official overclocking limits" although this seems to be where the trouble is as I tick the "Extend official overclocking limits" box in general settings and it asks me to reboot so I do although on startup afterburner is still not working and the box I had ticked is no longer ticked so idk what's wrong, any help would be appreciated :)

    Hey there,

    Download http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4645-amd-overdrive.html amd gpu oc utility

    if that does not work try this- Saphire Trixx- same thing as above......http://www.sapphiretech.com/catapage_tech.asp?cataid=291

    Or His -i-turbo- gpu oc software.http://www.hisdigital.com/un/download.shtml

    or Asus gpu tweak- same as above.http://edgeup.asus.com/2015/10/16/new-gpu-tweak-ii-your-graphics-card-best-friend/

    I responded to your other thread also But try and go with Amd overdrive oc utility 1st if possible, I dont know why Msi afterburner is giving you such a hard time but for the time being just try one of these that I mentioned. Sorry for responding so late.

    Hi Nick,

    Unfortunately Amd overdrive doesn't work as it's not an amd processor and shows this error

    http://prntscr.
    com/dvz5o6

    Sapphire trixx doesn't seem to be working either :/

    Didn't try the gpu iturbo software yet tbh although can't see it working lol

    gpu tweak II doesn't load up :(

    http://prntscr.
    com/dvzf8t

    I've installed all the latest drivers from asus and still no joy, I don't have a clue what it could be but doesn't seem like a problem with any of the programs as they all doing same thing, thanks for your help though and will keep trying to find out what problem is, knowing my luck it will be something obvious and due to user error lol

    Version of Windows?

    What version of Catalyst Driver do you have installed?

    You can always use the " Automatically Detect and Install Your Driver " file to have the latest installed automatically for you.

    Windows 10 - All updates downloaded, maybe I should get windows 7?

    I'm guessing catalyst is one of these?

    Just after doing that although afterburner still looks same :/

    Windows 10 is good, no reason to move to Windows 7.

    Uninstall Afterburner completely. During the uninstall it will ask to remove saved profiles, answer " Yes "

    Reboot.

    Reinstall Afterburner make sure you select reboot when it asked to find GPU clock values ( or something like that ).

    Report back.
