what about breaking into its code to raise the ceiling?
Well I did the best I could, editing a configuration file to enable unofficial overclocking. That raises the limit as it should. But then MSI Afterburner stops accepting the clocks I input, it just drops to zero instead (whether or not I go above the normal clock limit, in this case 875 MHz core). I was hoping someone knew how to fix that problem; I tried another "solution" to that problem but like I said, it ended up giving me flickering and display bugs of whatever kind. And that was just sitting idle on the desktop, I don't even want to think about what running a game or stress test would have done to my GPU.
