Hello,

I would like to set up an overclocking profile for my 4x6770 machine during Windows start-up; that is, after windows boots and before any user logs in.  Ideally, I would like to set the clock, memory, voltage, and fan speeds prior to running any miners during at start-up time.  Unfortunately, I cannot find a tool that will reliably do this for me.

  • ClockTweak is ideal, except the current version doesn't allow me to control the fans for the 6770
  • MSI Afterburner would work except that it needs an interactive logon session to apply a profile
  • AMD Vision Control Center would also work but also needs an interactive logon session


Is there a tool can run as either a Windows service or startup script that will execute an overclocking profile for the entire machine?

Maybe I don't get something. IME when you reboot, the overclocking profile is retained. I never have to reset it.

The problem I'm having is that when I put things in startup, my network hasn't initialized and this causes the workers to hang.

one would have to check those oc tools and see if any support command line arguments. If they do, that's the majority of the issue.

I've rebooted during testing several times, and each time, the default profile is restored from the card.  Perhaps it is just the cards I have though (Sapphire 6770).
