Hi

I have a few HIS ATI 5850 cars in a few computers and i wonder what is the best way to get more hashrate out of them? i guess people will say use MSI afterburner but i have a problem, when i start MSI afterburner i cant change the voltage, i have done the config like below but still cant change it, i have also clicked the unlock in the settings, so what am i doing wrong ?

EnableUnofficialOverclocking   = 1
UnofficialOverclockingEULA   = I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
UnofficialOverclockingMode   = 2
AccessibilityCheckingPeriod   = 0

also, what settings for core clock, memory  voltage etc etc would you recommend that i use for good hashrate ?

core clock is currently 850 and memory is set to 1200.

Since you're stealing "borrowing without permission" electricity from your school (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=60120.msg699968#msg699968) there's really not much need for excessive finesse:

GPU core clocks? Maximum stable. Use increments of 20.
Memory clocks? Lowest not impacting your mining speed, most likely 300.
Voltage? Some additional voltage might allow you to overclock higher but leave it for now.
Concentrate on finding maximum stable gpu core clock.

N/A, skipped the "borrowing" part for now because of the "request" problem :/

how much hashrate would i gain on fideling with the coreclock and memory ? enough to bother with it ?

edit:
i changed the settings to run core clock 1000 and memory 400 to gain about 35-45+ in hashrate, is that good or can i do anything else?

1000 on the GPU? Thats pretty high for a 5850, but if its stable, be happy.
What miner are you using?

I havent noticed any problems so far, it's running a hashrate of 420~ish right now under CGminer with these settings

Just do mind the core temperature k?

Drop that memclock it is just wasting electricity and producing heat.

300 should be possible, you may find you can go even lower.

Ive never gotten more than ~375 out of any of my 5850s for longer than an hour, so assuming your temps are under control, be happy.

then i will be Smiley

since my last post i have kept the same settings i said above, the fan runs at about 70~% but the temp on the card is just around 75~ all the time
