    I'm wondering what solution the guys who HAVE NOT flashed their bios have been using to overclock their card past the CCC limits (960/1445).

    My card hit those limits without even flinching, and I know I can use AMD Gpu Tool to clock up, but then I lose fan speed control. I've installed Rivatuner 2.24c, but it appears my card is not supported because I can't do any tweaking in there like normal.

    Is there a version that IS supporting the 5770's or not yet? If not, then without bios flashing what other options are there that will still allow for fan control?

    Thanks :toast:

    Mine won't go past 930/1440 without my drivers crashing.

    Have you tried MSI Afterburner? It works for both my cards, not sure if it will work with the 57xx series though.

    Afterburner won't let me go past 960/1440 either. Maybe a combo package for fan control?

    Yep, sadly it won't let me go any further than CCC will. So far I've tried AMD Gpu tool, MSI Afterburner, RivaTuner (no support yet it seems), and of course CCC. That's all I can remember so far so I'm not sure if there is anything left out there?

    I'm not really interested in making a boot disk and flashing the bios at this time, just hoping there is something out there or at least in the pipeline that can help me out. I'm surprised that RivaTuner doesn't seem to support my card yet.

    Use MSI afterburner and open the config file with notepad, in the config change Unofficial overclocking value from 0 to 1 then close and save. It will now overclock as high as needed.:rockout:
    Kei says thanks.

    To go over 960 for GPU, flash the ASUS bios. Then you have unlocked both the GPU and the voltage. I'm running now my Vapor-X 5770 with 1010Mhz for GPU@1237mV and 1300 RAM. I was curious if some other guys manage to push the GPU further and with what voltage. tnks.

    You don't have to flash your card in order to get above those clocks, we have been using MSI Afterburner instead and just editing a simple line in the config file which allows us to unlock everything. :)

    On my card the highest I got to before I stopped testing was 1025Mhz core @ 1.20v and 1445Mhz memory both stable tested with Furmark (30 mins), games (hours), and daily usage.

    I didn't see much reason to go very high above those clocks since it would require more voltage likely and create needless heat so I settled down instead at the 1000Mhz 1.15v and 1400Mhz ram.

    yeah you don't have to flash to use MSI afterburner but I still did anyway just incase one day down the road when Rivatuner will have native support (without editing) for 5770. So far I'm 1020mhz @ 1.275v on stock cooler

    Hey! i just finished clocking my i7 920 2.66ghz. Found a good stable level 3.8ghz @ 1.25v didnt know it was that clockable :) but i didnt manage to get my ddr3 running in 2000mhz, only 1523mhz.
    So now im about to get my XFX 5770 clocked. I have scanned forums for hours now and realized that using msi afterburner and edit the config is the way to go if you want to be able to manage the clocking with one program.

    My XFX 5770 has an idle temp of 33c and i find that pretty nice, i have been trying to clock and i think i could use a little more voltage because i se small blips/glitches in the graphic benchmark before it goes black :) any ideas?

    It would be nice to find some good results and settings from others. Also im trying to find the highest voltages the cards can handle.

    Ill post any success finding info or with my own clocking

    Ok ive done some testing today on my single XFX 5770 LITE, and here it goes!

    Hardware
    Binary: Windows 32bit Visual C++ 1500 Release Oct 22 2009
    Operating system: Windows 7 (build 7600) 64bit
    CPU model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
    CPU flags: 3799MHz MMX SSE SSE2 SSE3 SSSE3 SSE41 SSE42 HTT
    GPU model: ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series 8.681.0.0 1024Mb
    RAM: 6GB DDR3 PC16000 2000mhz running at 1523mhz
    Benchmark program
    Unigine
    Heaven Demo v1.0

    Settings
    Render: direct3d11
    Mode: 1680x1050 windowed
    Shaders: high
    Textures: high
    Filter: trilinear
    Anisotropy: 4x
    Occlusion: enabled
    Refraction: enabled
    Volumetric: enabled

    TEST Before
    1125mV
    gpu clock 850mhz
    mem clock 1200mhz

    Result
    FPS: 25.6
    Scores: 645

    TEST After i think its stable, no errors yet :toast:

    1274mV
    gpu clock 1030
    mem clock 1300
    fan auto

    Result
    FPS: 29.8
    Scores: 751

    Gpu on max load - 72 degrees celsius with a fan rate of 45%


    I wanted to push it more but MSI Afterburner didnt let me set the voltages to 1280mV, it auto lowered it to 1274mV when i tried? maybe a good thing :wtf:

    Someone teach me how to edit the config file... :( I can tweak the voltage using MSI Afterburner but can't go past CCC with my XFX card.

    Edit: Never mind, I got it. :D

    In the msi afterburner folder you will find MSIAfterburner.cfg, open it and change the value EnableUnofficialOverclocking = 1

    save as and save it over the old file, that worked for me and then your ready to go :)
