[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.

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.
