Hi, so im trying to over volt my Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 Super O/C (with the normal OC bios :(  )... but msi afterburner wont lemme touch the voltages, so i though hey! i have overdrive

well... it dosent show my graphics card in the monitor, and i looked at the log, and it was claming a 50C cpu tem (when it was low 30's)

it couldnt detect half the voltages (3.3V was 0.03)

is this normal for Overdrive?

Overdrive won't affect Gpu settings unless they've added that feature since I used it,
Axtu is better than overdrivel anyway,
Have you tried Gpu-tweak or Rivatuner for gfx instead?

gpu-tweak dosent allow for over volting in my case (or at all perhaps?) but does work

well... i've noticed another problem, msi afterburner isnt noticing any change i make in the CFG, not the unlocked voltage or the unofficial overclocking

i can overvolt using afterburner you just have to unlock the sliders. its somewhere in options, mainly to protect n00bs from nuking their GPUs.

your ccc is uptodate I assume?
Amd vision control centre (as its now apparently named)
click on the performance tab then overdrive, its give the stats and sliders page, I have to scroll down to get the power slider, but it is there,
remember to set and apply it for each card if you have multiple gfx cards

Click the tickbox that says graphics overdrive, see if the powerslider comes available,
and in preferences, make sure its set to advanced

it only works with the super overclock cards, and i have the overclock versions bios, and even when i used it, the over voltage wouldnt work

but i sent in a ticket to gigabyte (primarily coz im looking into a waterblock) so hopefully i may get a bios outta them, but i highly doubt it

-.- went into RBE, acquired the BIOS, and it configured RivaTuner for me, now i can adjust the fan speed and monitor the card with it lol

gah, well it seems this card hates BIOS adjustments, safe mode it is

and the techpowerup VGA bios collection has the normal and OC bioses, and gigabyte only has em listed for the overclock edition

well, time for atiflash and the o/c bios i guess

its alright, linux mint is working good so im installing wine now... atleast i can work around it that way without working DOS

also, i remember when i was trying different bios images, i found that they would work until i installed the display driver, found that a little weird

ok, well my card dosent react well to any voltage changes, but ive noticed its going through everything else problem free, which makes me wonder if its a driver issue

Possibly, are there any whispers on the net about it being a known G.Byte issue?
