Anyone know where I can get a hold of this tool?

Also, I may already have a copy (I have a copy of ATIOvervolt, but I get an error message when trying to run it)... So thus my next question! Does it work on Windows 7 64-bit? If not, does it work on Windows 7 32 bit, or do I need to install one of my older versions of Windows in order to bump my settings up a little before reinstalling Windows 7?

I'm not looking to go crazy with OC'ing it, but I know that with some conservative voltage changes some decent results are possible.

Thanks.

try reinstalling it or redownloading it and see if it will work, it may have just failed because there was an error when it got unpacked

Still doesn't work 100%. It seems like there is a file missing from my Windows or something. I'm going to try it again after re-installing windows tonight....

You may also want to give MSI Afterburner a try. It is a RivaTuner based program with a streamlined interface, which includes voltage settings.

Thanks.

A question about the Afterburner program. If you don't set it to start up with Windows, do the voltage settings reset when you restart the computer?

Yes, it will go back to default settings if you don't click on the bottom where is says "Apply overclocking at system startup". You will see a green light in front this app. when the OC is applied on start up.

I tried the MSI Afterburner with my 5970. However the voltage option is greyed out and can not be used. Any ideas? Thanks.

First get the latest version which is 1.5.0

Click:
-Setting
-Then in the General Tab at bottom it says Safety properties - Check the box - Unlock Voltage Controls and Unlock Voltage Monitoring
-OK
-Then close the application and open it again.
