PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND WILL CONSTANTLY BE UPDATED WHEN I HAVE TIME: owners of these cards that want good overclocks, raise the core clocks in multiples of 10MHz, nothing besides multiples of 10 and memory you can clock either 25 or 50 mhz if the memory can withstand the frequency! any number other then a multiplier of 10mhz will black screen you at higher clocks and give you a lower overall benchmark score. Good luck and please post your findings so I may update what gpu and what clock multi works best for your msi card. But Im sure these are locked at 10 MHz increments and anything above or below 10 will be a fail.

LOOK HERE: CHECK FOR OLD DISPLAY DRIVERS HERE ^Thanks to > @erocker it saved my ass Latest AMD Un-install tool for W7-W8, W8.1 Tested myself and works well Display Driver Un-installer aka DDL Latest BETA DDL Tested myself and works, but I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT! It removes USB Asmedia usb 3.0 driver and other shit that WILL SCREW YOUR RIG UP! Id recommend just going into the Local ( C: ) and under Program files X86 look for AMD and keep clicking till you see the Set-up amd Icon and removing the driver that way. Alot smoother imo. And alot Less hassle Meet neliz our MSI rep goto 2:56 in the video to know whom may be helping you, One Hell of a great guy!
