$aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-setclocks=770,1126

check out ...

$aticonfig --help

GUI based tools should be treated with caution when you are thrashing the GPUs as hard as you can under linux using a miner

It depends on what you're trying to tweak. If you're just looking to overclock then aticonfig will do it.

If you want to go more advanced and tweak voltage and lower clocks then you want AMDOverdriveCtl.

If you're using AMDOverdriveCtl you really need to understand your BIOS limits and voltages being supplied to the card so you don't damage it.

Thanks for that moa!

And the --adapter value is the same as the "d" value for poclbm?

Do you have a link to that AMDOverdriveCtl??? I can't find any reference to it on the net :S

No, aticonfig use 0,1,2,...
and poclbm uses 1,2,3, ...

Just give it a

$aticonfig --list-adapters

or

$aticonfig --lsa

and it will list the adapters that the fglrx (the graphics driver) has intialised and aticonfig is 'seeing'.

Does it need X to work, or can you use it at the command line, too ?

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

It is a command line program, but you need X running to see any error messages or warnings.

You can use AMDOverdriveCtrl from the command line.  Save a profile (.ovdr file) and pass the -b flag.

No, it can't go over limits.
Does anybody know how to bypass limits without BIOS modification in linux?

Yep. Twiddle with the sliders in this tool and when you go back to CLI  $aticonfig the limits have changed ... go figure.

That only makes it possible to go below the limits, not above.
