Hi forum, i have some questions about MSI Afterburner and overclocking.

Currently have my Gigabyte 6870 overclocked at 965/1050 using Catalyst Control Center (CCC).
I came across some threads where other individuals had obtained a higher stable clock using MSI Afterburner over CCC.

(1) Is this true? If so, then i plan to to use MSI Afterburner to obtain a higher GPU clock.
(2) My MSI Afterburner GPU Core Clock is capped at 1000hz, but I was under the impression you could exceed 1000hz?

Thanks.

This is not correct. Afterburner works with a huge variety of cards.

Afterburner automatically sets a "safe" upper bound so that you don't ruin your card by accident. You have to enable "unofficial overclocking" to allow for higher clocks that 1000Mhz

This is how:
