I'm trying to underclock the RAM of my Radeon 5970 below the allowed range of [1000-1500]MHz, but even aticonfig --odsc 0,999 gives me an error...

Is there a way to override the limit? I've seen many people around here with similar cards and the RAM clock set at 300MHz...

Hi,

There is a thread on this in the forum somewhere. But try to get hold of amdoverdrivectrl. I use it to downclock the RAM on a 5970.

I use RBE and flash the BIOS to the settings I want.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

I think this is the one, https://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=9569
It works, but would be nice to have a more streamline process.

You can streamline it. My script looks something like:
for i in 0 3 4 7; do
amdoverdrivectrl -b -i $i 5970.xml
done

Stick that in your .gnomerc or whatever and you're good to go.

Thank you, I'll have a look at that, probably tomorrow.

What can I expect in terms of temperature by underclocking the RAM it to the 300-400MHz range?
