MSI afterburner Overvolt
 
Hey guys! it's me again! So, it's the first time I overvolt a card and I have a little question about it. I am using MSI afterburner to overvolt my R5670 cyclone. I already tweak the software to be able to OV it but when I try ot OV I only can set 0 or 99. Is this right and 99 is a fair value or is this bad and that will make damage to the card because it's to much?
Thx guys! Ask if you need more info!

Not sure what you mean by 0 or 99. Generally when you overvolt a card w/ Afterburner it shows the voltage of the core and you just adjust it. i.e. 1205 which would be 1205 millivolts.

What lowfat said. Have you tried updating to newer drivers and the latest Afterburner?

I wanna overvolt my 9600GT, but sadly, it's not possible I think.

This is what I mean, Actually the CV is showing a X number +0, if I set +5 ( exemple ) when I will click apply it will go back to 0. If I put 100 it will go back to 99. If I set it from 0 to 50, it auto set on 0. 51 to 100 it auto set on 99. More clear now?

Wierd. That is different than anything else I've seen. If you enable voltages under montioring what does it show for your gpu voltage if you move it around?

it probably just adds 99 mV -> 0.099 V

There is no Voltage option under monitoring, What version are you using??

I believe your card does not support voltage increases. If you can't even read the voltage, then I doubt it even more.

Usually the voltage slider is disabled if it's not supported though. However I guess this is one of those weird cases where it doesn't follow the norm.

According to our friend from MSI website she does support it.

MSI Global ? Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

It's wierd, I will look around to resolve that.
