My System Specs

Default MSI Afterburner vs. AMD GPU Clock Tool

Hi guys,

I've realized that my OC for my XFX Radeon HD 5850 is quite conservative, and I'd like to take it just a tiny bit further (right now at 800/1130). Now, overclocking past what I already have using MSI afterburner seems to glitch the card somewhat, and so I'm wondering if I should give AMD GPU Clock Tool a try, and just let MSI AB handle the custom fan speeds. Do you guys think it's better to OC with AMD GPU Clock Tool or am I getting the most out of my card using MSI AB already?

I'm also having trouble determining what is the latest version of the AMD GPU Clock Tool - Guru3D has both 0.9.8 and 0.9.26 listed, although the latter is labeled as for "HD 5870". Isn't there an official link from AMD for the download?
