Im pretty much new to Over clocking... and im probably doing something wrong. And I know "you shouldn't be messing with it if you don't know what you're doing" but hey. Everyone has to learn at one point or another.

It seems that when I try to overclock my GPU, everytime I will get screen flickering. Even with the slightest raise of Core Clock. For example, Stock is @ 860GHZ, raising to 864 will start to flicker. My temperature never raises passed 53~ when playing APB: Reloaded on High.


Even with my older gpu, the same thing occured.

My Specs:



My Temps: Pretty sure that's not the problem, considering I can't raise Ghz at all...

Im guessing it's my Motherboard?

What's the make and model of your PSU as that is most likely the problem.

since you have an ati card try using the catalyst control center tool to overclock.

Downloading. Should be done within a few mintues... Will this most likely be the fix?

It's probably because you haven't increased your voltage when you overclocked.

it might be, since the card will be working harder it will take more power, leaving the power on stock and increasing the clock speed might cause problems, the only time that i used my overclock and forgot to raise the power level i got a black screen after a few minutes of start gaming. so lets hope it fix it.

@OP you also have to know that OC is never a guarantee thing. some card will OC like mad and some barely past the stock clock even with the voltage push to the limit

Probably because I don't remember touching a power or voltage slide/button. Everything is downloaded, how should I proceed?

Not trying to be rude just pointing it out that that has to be the worste tutorial ever.

OT: I see no Voltage or Power options. D:


XD lol ok sorry about that, ok try this on the msi afterburner in the second option: power limit, increase the power to max (on mine max is 120% btw), save, then use the catalyst overide to overclock it. see if it works (btw i replaced the link to a better video guide XD).

woot glad you made it, also try using stress programs every time you increase the clocks to see the card performance. i use furmark and heaven 3.0, good luck and have a happy overclocking n.n

Yup. I do run stress programs after ever increment. I also know that once I get really high up in Mhz I should leave the stresser on for hours
