    Find the section that begins with this heading
    Code:

    [ATIADLHAL]

    Replace what's on there with this:
    Code:

    [ATIADLHAL]
    EnableUnofficialOverclocking = 1
    UnofficialOverclockingEULA = I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
    UnofficialOverclockingMode = 1
    AccessibilityCheckingPeriod = 0


    Save the file... restart MSI AB. If your cards support voltage control; you should have access to more clocks and voltages if you've done it correctly.

    PS: Note that this is for the latest version of MSI AB (what used to be 2.1.0 B7)....

    Hope this helps

    Sad to say, I think that card is voltage locked by XFX. Probably because they skimped on hardware and the regulator on their can't handle it. A hardware mod would be required.

  5. EchoOne, copy the file to your desktop, rename the original MSIAfterburner.cfg_orig

    Edit the copied one, and then put it into the same folder as the original one.
