How are you having troubles?

Close MSI AB.. Go to the folder it is installed in, open MSIAfterburner.cfg, find "UnofficialOverclockingMode", set to 2. Save, and close. Open MSI AB, accept EULA.

Run 1375 mhz memory, or 1575 mhz memory. @ 1575 mhz the timings are the same as 1375, but in between 1375-1575 the timings are much more loose.

Well i ran at 1200 mhz and memory like 1530mhz, it was alot slower than my 1125mhz something wasn't right so I tried to reset and voltage and default mhz was screwed up. so messing with the msi afterburner cfg, got the program wacky. removed it and reinstalled, same thing all wacky. so I unistalled msi afterburner and just use the ATI drivers 1125mhz, 1575 mhz memory, everything is well. so I'm just using Ati drivers works well for me. Plenty fast enough too.

Probably too high on the memory. The memory has error correction, so if you OC it too far, you can actually get slower results. Try to pull back on the memory speed and keep the GPU at the same speed if you try again.

well memory runs fine at 1575mhz on the ati ccc drivers 1125 mhz gpu also. thats plenty fast enough also when i run furmark at 2500/1600 resoulution at 2msaa and all temps on one never get above 36C. other one said 28c, so I'm just leaving my overclock always on.

Oh, the way your post read I thought you meant it ran worse OC'd versus stock speeds on both.

Nope unistalled msi sfterburner, found a folder in programs still left there and it had profiles and stuff, that was probally the reason when i reinstalled it it was still messed up. Well I'm just using the Ati drivers and CCC works good enough, 1125mhz gpu, 1575mhz memory.

And my result at 2560*1400 witth 8x AA at extreme settings in heaven, with a quad crossfire setup:





Only 5 Fps better on the average than roadhogs result, but 23 Fps better on the minimums and roughly the same on the maximum value hit....The cards are still as stock speeds, and no overclocking till their water cooled.
