Not as clumsy or random as a GUI. Elegant mining hardware control, from a more civilized age.

MS Windows command line overclock / underclock, temperature observe and GPU data logging tool for AMD Radeon HD graphic cards.

Features
• Change core clock from very low values up to BIOS limit = CCC limit (e.g. stock Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme: 159-900Mhz*). Benefit: Increased Hashrate. It is NOT possible to overclock or overvolt higher than with catalyst control center!
• Change memory clock from very low value up to BIOS limit (e.g. stock Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme: 159-1250Mhz*). Benefit: Lower power dissipation, thus lower temperatures in turn allowing significantly higher core clock.
• Reduce core voltage**. Benefit: Lower power dissipation.
• Will preserve your warranty unlike modifying the BIOS which may void it.
• Works with multiple cards.
• Fan control.
• PowerTune support
• Data logging
• JSON output
• Temperature limit and idle watching.

* Depending on core voltage and hardware limits.
** May only work in big steps at the moment, depending on your card. (e.g. stock Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme: 950mV, 1038mV, 1088mV)

New in v0.9.2b: small fix for undervolting allowing idle voltage levels for mining --> very low power consumption

My four Sapphire HD 5850s can run at 870Mhz instead of 725Mhz at stock 1088mV. Because they get very hot in this configuration I run them at 807/269Mhz, 1088mV. Another possible configuration is 699/233Mhz, 1038mV, saving ~40W per card.

Donate: 1FrZre72S2jbGG2CN4qG94BS6km7VfpMLU

As a precaution check without load (=without miners) if everything works as intendend with your system. Also test if the limits work as you expect.
This program can destroy your system by overheating etc. - be careful and closely monitor your system temperatures and wattage. Especially on 6xxx and 7xxx systems memory downclocking might be limited. Clocks and voltages can jump back to stock values if you go lower than a certain limit without driver readings (=clocktweak readings) reflecting it.

Note: Adapter / GPU order may be different from your mining software!

If you do not know what a command line is and how to use it this is NOT the right tool for you.

FAQ
Q: Why does ClockTweak give me an error if I try to set the core clock / voltage above xxx?
A: You run into the BIOS limit. Either go along with lower values, try another tool or use RBE to modify your BIOS. Some people can beyond BIOS limits with driver version 11.6 / 11.7 / 11.8.

Q: Why does ClockTweak give me an error if I try to set the memory clock below xxx?
A: You run into the BIOS limit. Either go along with higher values, try another tool or use RBE to modify your BIOS. Some people can beyond BIOS limits with driver version 11.6 / 11.7 / 11.8.

Q: How can I reset my card to default mem clock speeds also for level 0 (2D)?
A: There is no comfort function for this yet. Either reboot or ask me for procedure using hidden options explained in the readme.

Q: Why is the reported fan speed different from the speed I set?
A: The reported fan speed is the measured rpm in proportion to the theoretical maximum rpm. A difference of 20% or so is still normal. If the air stream is blocked or the fan is broken the reported fan speed will decrease.

yes it should work. On my HD5850 I can drag down the Memory Clock all the way to 159Mhz.

I have asus 6950 DC II which has quite unique voltage control(only the program that asus provides has worked so far). Does your program work for it?
does it use the catalyst driver? then it should work

I will give refunds if ClockTweak does not work as advertised, at least for people with some reputation on the forum.

It is still in beta phase, so please help testing. You will get a full refund if you are the first to test ClockTweak in one of the following environments and post a screenshot / copy of outputs "-a" and "-r". in this thread.

I use your program, unfortunately I can not change the voltage on any GPU.
I have 2pcs Asus EAH5850 DirectCU TOP/2DIS/1GD5, Win7 64-bit

What's wrong?

could you also post the adapter list, output of clocktweak -a

your card is already at the voltage limit from the bios. I realize with most cards it will only be possible to undervolt without modifying the bios - I will edit the description. you should be able to set the voltage to 1117mV for example - but try it at a lower clock speed first.

the advantage of a lower voltage is less power consumption and also less heat.

still you should be able to overclock quite a bit and remain stable.

I think your card comes at 725MHz core / 1000Mhz mem stock clocks? so with 930Mhz you overclocked the core quite a bit and 300Mhz mem clock also sounds good for mining.

I became interested in your program because I wanted to up voltage. I care about increasing MHhas/s, and the same 930/300, I managed to get the program AMD ATI Tool.

Now I use ClockTweak using batch - the PC always starts with the proper performance

Today evening I will try to test the program with the Sapphire HD5830.

So, it looks like changes are only being applied to one of the GPU cores of my 6990.  I wondered if that would be the case when I saw that it reported only a single adapter, as you can see in my screenshot above.

@cdb000
these are very interesting programs. until now I had never found ATT and only an older version of the GPU Tool.
ATT I can only get work with one card, the same as with a lot of other programs. Do you use any of the tweak options for mining?
The GPU tool seems to be really sophisticated I will take a close look at what it can do.

@proudhon
Seems like you found the first problem already. it applies to dual gpu cards like the 5970 and the 6990. I will look into it.

I'm really digging this tool, BTW.  Easy and no GUI fuss.  Thanks.  This'll definitely be my preferred method of tweaking once you fix the dual GPU issue.

The GPU tool seems to be really sophisticated I will take a close look at what it can do.

I found that ATT would only work for one card, so I use it on the XP box which has only 1 card (don't be misled by the clocktweak output - the machine has 1 card with 2 monitors) I only use it to set the clocks, I never bothered with the tweaks simply because I am too lazy to spend time messing with it - "If it isn't broken, don't fix it". It is convenient because it can run at startup without human intervention. The XP machine is my desktop, and tends to need occasional reboots. I stick with XP on this because there is a game I like to play that I have not been able to get working correctly on Win7.

AMD GPU Clock Tool allows more cards. It works for me on a machine with 4 HD5870s, but I have not been able to use it to set voltages. It does have the useful ability to log temperatures to a file. The version I have is 0.9.26.0 and I have no idea whether it is up to date or not. I can't remember where I downloaded it, but it turns up in quite a few places with a Google search.
My 4 dedicated mining machines run Win7 which seems to be stable enough that the irritation of having to set clocks manually on a reboot isn't that great. (1 reboot in 3 months, caused by power failure)

I am hoping that clocktweak will allow me to set voltages. I will experiment this evening when I am at hope. I am too much of a coward to try setting voltages remotely in case a do something that needs a hard reboot to recover - VNC has its limits.

With difficulty rising, it may be that the last few Bitcents can be mined by underclocking and undervoltaging the cards to reduce power use and improve hashes per Watt.

The VRM output voltage for HD5800 series cards (ie. VT1165 VRM) can only be set in steps of 0.0125 V above a minimum of 0.450 V, if I'm not mistaken.

did you check that with gpu-z or something? my trixx does not really change anything besides the fancy scrollbar (actual voltage stayed the same) when I last checked.

Works well! I think I'm the first one to change clocks and undervolt on a 5870, so if you can, refund me at 1EavXbWqAYWPQK7VXjgSvuVL5YiHCga5ni. If I'm not the first, then ignore this

Sadly, it doesn't let me set any core clocks or voltages above default. I get:

when i raise the voltage

1 my temps go up
2 wattage goes up acording to my killawatt
3 my 950mhz overclock becomes stable
4 gpuz stays the same.

sent!

what type is your other card? did you try to change something on that, too?

BIOS voltage limit is expected. to increase the core clock you will still need RBE. I am looking for a solution to this but it probably will not work via the driver.

ok, that really sounds like it's working. It still should only work in steps becaues of the VRM (see post from Ius). I will check with the watt-meter, too.

It's a pitty AMD is so restrictive about voltage control - either they are afraid of people bricking their cards or they want to sell more expensive ones.

Just wanted to plug this little tool.  It's perfect for Windows dedicated miners so that you don't have to mess around in a GUI to adjust clocks/memory/voltages etc.  Very helpful, and totally worth it.

you will probably only be able to reduce voltage. on my sapphire HD 5850s voltage changes are quite limited, basically the only option that makes sense is to reduce voltage to 1038mV to save power / lower heat.

if your manufacturer is among the ones not yet tested you will get a refund anyway.

yes, I am. please send me the output of -x by pm. I know what's going on and should be able to fix it. That is quite unexpected, especially with that card - do you know the revision number? What colour is the circuit board?

sent the refund!

what are the brands of your cards?

a value of thumb is to set the memory clock to a third of the core clock. and the core clock as high as thermally stable at current voltage.

some people say there is are sweet spots, configurations that work better than others just a Mhz away and stay particularly cool. I have not yet decided on this.

I'll be able to check a 3rd by monday - this is probably the same as the 2nd one [not 100% sure]
I'll also be able to check a 5570 sometime next week

if I get a chance I'll do some performance figures also

Very nice tool, I finally don't have to start MSI Afterburner 4 times to downclock the memory on my ASUS 5850 DirectCU TOP because the AMD GPU clock tool fails to do it.
Reverse situation occurs on my HIS 5850 Reference Design, ClockTweak and MSI Afterburner both fail to set the clocks, AMD GPU clock saves the day.

Just purchased this wounderful program.

I am running two HD5850's (Sapphire Extreme Lite) and can successfully change the mem speed and core speed (Although the drivers fail as soon as I try to go over 880Mhz? (core)) but I don't seem to be able to increase the voltage to 1118 (I had a stable overclock using trixx at this voltage).

Any idea's as to why Trixx can change the voltage (Only on the one card!) but CoreClock can't?

the driver does not allow voltage changes above bios limit

it could be possible by communicating directly to the voltage regulator but it is a bit tricky

I don't want the refund, your app saves me from messing with afterburner, which I really hated. Core clock limit in CCC for HIS is 775MHz, so is ClockTweak bound to the AMD Overdrive limits?

yes. unfortunately it is bound by the driver limits which in case depend on the bios limits. It should be possible to modify the bios with RBE and then use ClockTweak to play and optimize. I have not tried RBE yet.

I assume you can set core clock to 775MHz. With good cooling it would of course be nice to get some more.

You have to run this from the command prompt.  The program is called cmd.exe.
In Windows 7, you can get to it by clicking start and typing in cmd in the search box or navigate to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

it is a command line utility. have you never heard of that?

in windows: click on start, then run. type: "cmd.exe"  then hit enter. go to the directory where you installed it with "cd \"   and e.g. "cd "program files",  "cd clocktweak". then enter "clocktweak" to get the help

which test are you claiming? 5870 have already been tested. what are the manufacturers of your cards?

your cards IDs seem quite odd. you should be able to access your cards at adapter#s: 1 / 3 / 6 / 8

I never got my cards to work without dummy plug (XP). I think I tried this setting. It really works for you by just changing this registry setting?

if you have no experience with command line it might be better for you to stick to msi afterburner or catalyst control center.

you will probably only able to lower the voltage, should be able to decrease mem speed quite a bit and increase core speed as high as with catalyst control center.

Can this set voltages and clocks for multiple gpu's that are not crossfired, specifically the 5830? I've had not luck with Afterburner (no voltage control), Trixx (only overclocks 1 GPU), and AMD Tray Tools (no voltage control, but sets both cards).

I am quite busy with some other stuff but it is possible. It is quite dangerous, though. If somebody frys his card I will have a bad conscience =)  I'll be on holiday for week and if I find the time afterwards I will take a look at it.

I mostly use the stock automatic fan control - running too hot for you?

I sent you an email yesterday. I ordered and paid, but never managed to download - IE9 instead showed me a funny text page (interpreted your file as text).

Can you pelase make it available for download somehow else for me? Or email it to the address I told you?

Can this set voltages and clocks for multiple gpu's that are not crossfired, specifically the 5830? I've had not luck with Afterburner (no voltage control), Trixx (only overclocks 1 GPU), and AMD Tray Tools (no voltage control, but sets both cards).
clocktweak works independent of crossfire. voltage control will probably be limited to voltage reduction in a handful of steps. I am trying to get the specification for the voltage regulator of the Sapphire HD 5850 Xtreme - not sure if it is the same on your card.

also you can try to just go to the download page and reload twice - it should work then according to the guys from bitcoinservice.

Please email me the download URL then. I tried that. Your transfer got stuck again - your firewall did remove the attachment (mine does not, did set it up myself and send binaries around often .... i make software, too).

Please email the the link, then I will try again, possibly also with... chrome. Thanks.

clocktweak doesn't let me clock my XFX HD5870 (link) above 900Mhz.

I could however overclock above 900 using the AMD tool (link), so it's not a hardware restriction, and I'm now using that tool instead...

However, do you know how amd gpu tool get to raise core clock higher than bios allows? I would love to use this clocktweak program to adjust more than just one cards above bios limit.

It is still in beta phase, so please help testing. You will get a full refund if you are the first to test ClockTweak to change clock/mem speeds and reduce voltage in one of the following environments and post a copy of the outputs of the "-x" option here. Please include information about the type and manufacturer of your card(s)!
I guess I have to add it's sapphire 5830, xtreme

Hi, received the app and it works great.

EDIT: Summary of tests, all were able to underclock memory to 300mhz.
XFX HD5850 Win7 64bit,  -v range is 951 to 1100 in steps of 1
HIS HD5770 WinXP 32bit,  no voltage control, fan speed reports unknown
Sapphire HD5750 Win7 64bit, -v appears in to be steps of 1, did not test full range.

Would like two feature requests:

1) ability to control fan speed from command line.  This way I can script idle/mining/gaming and control temps a little better.
2) bare format (suppress program name and version) that shows date/time and all adapter details in one line, would like to be able to run this every 5 mins and dump to a text file for logging/monitoring

low level hardware access bypassing the driver would be necessary. Also there are different voltage regulators that the manufacturers use. I would look into it for the Sapphire HD 5850 Xtreme Rev 2 as I have a couple of these cards myself but it is difficult to even get the chip specification...

btw is there any way to make the changes permanent ?
what do you mean by permanent?

you can write a batch file and put a link to it in the autostart folder so that it runs at every startup. put each call to clocktweak into its own line and maybe add a "pause" command on the last line so that you can read the results.

With ClockTweak I'm seemingly able to underlock my Radeon HD 6990's memory all the way down to 1 MHz. Reading back, the same value comes out. I kind of doubt that the hardware actually supports running at 1 MHz Commodore 64 speed though... And I don't seem to get any noticeable temperature drop either. So how do I find out how much I can REALLY underclock. MSI Afterburner let me go to only ca. 100 to 120 MHz below core speed (exact number depended on core speed), below that the display would show the stock 1250 MHz again. Still I got no temperature drop to speak of... and I've seen other people talk about underclocking to 300 MHz or even to 159 MHz.

So... how do I find out how low I can actually go? Or does anybody around here know how low you can clock a 6990?

My System: Windows 7 SP1 64-bit (fairly fresh installation but with all Windows Updates applied), Core2Quad 2.83 GHz,  one HD 6990, Catalyst 11.6, Phoenix miner (SVN version 103) running from source on 64-bit Python 2.7.2.

Thank you for any help!

I've been able to overclock the GPUs to 840 and am getting 330mHash/s with a couple of flags I cannot replicate from the top of my head AND a fan angled at the cards from zero distance, temp is ~75C.

I was, however, to this point NOT able to downclock the memory. I tried Afterburner, Trixx, BarelyClocked... nothing.

In your introductory post it says that the 6950 is supported. Might my model be an exception?
If you think your little prog could make this work, I'd love to buy it.

I am optimistic it will work. otherwise refund.

I have two 5830 saphire extremes.

1) Can only OC one card, either with "-a all" or specifically putting the adapter and using -f
2) Can't OC past 900mhz.   MSI afterburner allows this.

how far can you overclock in ccc?

if you like you can send me the -x output as a pm and I will look at it.

I examined the bios's and, while they were both the same card, one had a clock limit of 900 whereas the other had one of 875. Weird but they came from newegg this way.

I used RBE and set them both to 950, the tool works like a charm.   Thank you for making this!!!

Just a little purely aesthetic issue:

On the 6990 there is of course only one fan for the two GPUs. So for the second GPU clocktweak -r will display "FAN: N.A" and then break the line at that point which looks ugly since the line for the first GPU is not broken after "Fan: <some number>".

I'd suggest changing that to "Fan: N/A" and no line break.

thanks a lot! I had that tested before but afterwards changed something and seemingly got it wrong. I fixed it already but if it does not disturb you too much I would wait with the next release for more changes / features.

btw: does your sig say *image removed* on purpose? I assume you see it yourself so just wondering.

I think it's fairly obvious that this does not justify a new release. And no, luckily I'm not *that* easily disturbed.

btw: does your sig say *image removed* on purpose? I assume you see it yourself so just wondering.

There's an image url in my sig in support of Bitcoinpool.com but I'm still too new on this forum to be allowed to have an image in there (it's one of those newbie restriction). Being as lazy as I am, I'll just wait for it to show up when I have made enough posts.

My bios prevents me from using clocktweak to overclock to the level I'm after. But I found another use for it. Based on the example.bat in the program folder i created a monitoring batch that you can probably add to the end of your launch batch or run independently. This will run -r, then wait 15 seconds and run again. If there is an error it will end.

Code:
@echo off
:start
echo %date% %time%
clocktweak -r
@if errorlevel 1 goto error
ping -n 15 127.0.0.1 > nul
cls
@goto start

:error
@echo something went wrong

:end

You can change the refresh time by changing the number after -n on the line that begins with ping.

If you want to create a poor man's log you could modify it like this:

Code:
@echo off
:start
echo %date% %time% >> path\to\log.txt
clocktweak -r >> path\to\log.txt
echo . >> path\to\log.txt
@if errorlevel 1 goto error
ping -n 15 127.0.0.1 > nul
cls
@goto start

:error
@echo something went wrong

:end

Nice work!

I was thinking about adding a monitoring / logging feature but did not find the time yet.

It would also be interesting to have it exit with unique errorlevels if the gpu load drops for too long (e.g. --> restart phoenix) or if temperature would rise above a maximum level (--> shut down).

How much interest would there be for such features?

So I've tweaked this a bit. I saw where one of my rigs kept falling back to default core so i set up an -a all -c to refresh the OC as a scheduled task. but now i've put it into the monitor batch and set to run every 5 minutes with the monitor refreshing every 15 seconds

Code:
@Echo OFF
:oc
clocktweak -a all -c 980 -y
set /a ct=1
:start
if %ct% gtr 20 goto oc
echo %date% %time%
clocktweak -r
@if errorlevel 1 goto error
ping -n 15 127.0.0.1 > nul
cls
set /a ct+=1
@goto start

:error
@echo something went wrong

:end

i'd like to add the -c value as a variable and have that variable set to different speeds based on temperature. so if it hits a threshold, say 80C it would clock down by 30mhz or so. and then when it gets back to a reasonable range, crank it back up. i just hate doing all the for %%i TOKENS crap you gotta do to parse output. I'm sure for someone who's done more batching it would be trivial to write though.

I hope your card is not throttling down because of overtemperature. Also you might want to try to get rid of the autostarting ccc process (e.g. with spybot) maybe that is resetting the clock for some weird reason.

if you run clocktweak in a loop make sure there are no other programs running that access the gfx drivers! Especially with 10.x drivers things will probably get unstable.

It was really cool to have:
1.) a sweetspot finder
2.) artefact and temperature limited overclocking control = permanent optimization

I thought about these functions quite a bit but it would take a lot of time to implement.

yeah, ccc has been out of autostart.
I was having problems with MSI AB on this particular rig and overheat was surely part of the problem as well.
Now MSI AB just won't start on this particular rig so I'm using CT. And happy with it.

I'll probably do some messing around with the batch file to make it adjust for temps. No idea if I'll have the patience to get it working.

BTW, you refunded me last week because i was bios limited on my first rig. I'm going to return that refund because this is definitely worth .20 BTC

One more thing, on your release page can you put dates by your revision history. I'm not sure what version I have or if what updates I downloaded.

Thanks.

While artefact and sweetspot would be harder to implement, a looping display of the -r output, with the possibility of increasing fan/reducing overclock depending on temperature would be very useful; would also be a pain in the backside to code via scraping output.

Thanks for a super utility, well worth the price paid.

the problem is that the hashrate over clock is quite nonlinear. I am quite certain that in some cases slightly lower clockrate increased temperature on my system and that lower core clockrate sometimes results in  higher hashrate. This topic needs a lot of investigation...

Hi!

There is a problem with my HD 5870 V2 and I hope you guys wil help me.

I have 4 cards in a rig 3xGiabyte 5870 and one HD 5870 V2. Generally I run them 3x960\365 and 990\365\1.3v and set those parameters via clocktweak. Everything runs fine BUT then something happens and the fan of HD 5870 V2 suddenly lowers rpm to ~700 though in AB its shown that it is 100%. Clocktweak shows that it is only 15% of its max speed.

Afetr this I can not tweak the card via clocktweak. It says me ERROR: write_values: xxxxxxxxxx whatever I do.
But I can tweak a card via AB for example though fan still spins at ~700 rpm while displayed as 100% in AB.

All the cards are crossfired.

How to overcome this whatever it is?

I have only experienced something like you describe (fan going slow even when set to 100%, sometimes working again) with a broken fan (probably it was not the bearing but something else).

watch your temperatures, if the fan stops or goes that slow you can blow your card!

Tomorrow will give it back by warranty terms.

By the way! Something may have happend suddenly 'cause I started to have problems today in the morning and now its evening in my country and I have 3x5870 which refuse to work properly though everything was fine yesterday!

One is EAH5870 V2 which has 700rpm fan problem.
And two GV-R587 one of which boots up till "Startnig Windows" and then I can hear welcome sound bit the picture hangs on "Startnig Windows" screen! The other just makes my PC hang on boot!

Now my rig mines with a single GV-R587 which I hope will live long life...

A bad day I have today(((

Are there any opinions on what may have happened to them?

When I run that I get 320 Mh/s, but when I run the ATI tray overclock with same settings, plus power +20%, I get 420 Mh/s.

So my question is, how do I set that +20% power via command line?

-v sets power. You'll have to do the math on what 20% would equal.

Thinking of doing something bigger with this and while I'm certainly competent enough to parse your output I have to ask anyway... Any chance you could add another flag to give the -r output in JSON?

Hi,

Great program. I didn't have time to read this entire thread, but I thought I'd give some feedback.

My system:
========
Windows 7 64x
E6550 CPU
GA-p35-dsrl Mobo
Ati 5770

Tested and works
=============
Mem clock change (down to 300mhz)
Core clock change (up to 960mhz)

Tested and doesn't work
=============
Fan speed. Shows N.A.

thanks for sharing!

it seems on the 5770 fan control never works. or did it for anyone?

careful, -v sets voltage but jazkal means something different.

I think you are talking about the powertune feature? it is not (yet) implemented.

Yeah, I think it is the powertune feature.

I tried the -v settings, but they didn't do what I needed.

What about automatic core clock control ?
For example I setting up max and min core temperatures, and clocktweak keeps core clock in this margins.
This no need drivers, services, just simple schedule cron task .

Something like this will be added to every minute windows cron task:
coreclock -c auto -tmin 70 -tmax 80 -tstep 10 -m 300 -temerg 100 -emergtask "taskkill phoenix.exe"

After task run it will check is the temperature below -tmin (70), if yes, then it will increase core clock on -tstep (10) , if temp above -tmax (80) then it will decrease clock.

Also it can be emergency mode, f.e. if temp above -temerg (100) cels, is will runs -emergtask (can finish miners/shutdown, send sms/email/tweet/jabber/icq ...).

P.S.
I make simple XML output with .bat script. You can easy convert it into json format.
Code:
echo off
echo ^<xml^> > outfile.xml
FOR /F "tokens=1,3,5 delims=:# " %%A IN ('clocktweak.exe -r ^| Find "Temp"') DO (
echo   ^<card^> >> outfile.xml
echo      ^<cardid^>%%A^</card^> >> outfile.xml
echo      ^<temp^>%%B^</temp^> >> outfile.xml
echo   ^</cardid^> >> outfile.xml
)
echo ^</xml^> >> outfile.xml

output will be correct xml code:
Code:
<xml>
<card>
<cardid>0</cardid>
<temp>63</temp>
</card>
<card>
<cardid>3</cardid>
<temp>75</temp>
</card>
</xml>
you can save it into file by adding ">> outfile.xml"  in the end after every echo line

@Lexiko:
you sure know how to write a batch file!

temperature optimized clock rate is not so easy because temperature/hashrate can sometimes be quite nonlinear. I am still looking into it. Next version will have some featues to make it easier to implement it with a batch file if you really want.

preview example json output for the next release:
"level": 2, "adapter": 0, "mVoltL2": 1088, "memL2": 269, "active": 1, "memL0":
157, "id": -519966840, "fanSpeed": 83, "mVoltL0": 950, "coreL2": 807, "coreL0":

i'd like to add the -c value as a variable and have that variable set to different speeds based on temperature. so if it hits a threshold, say 80C it would clock down by 30mhz or so. and then when it gets back to a reasonable range, crank it back up. i just hate doing all the for %%i TOKENS crap you gotta do to parse output. I'm sure for someone who's done more batching it would be trivial to write though.

Lexiko proves me right. Nice work.

Hey Phelix. Great little tool you have going on here. i purchased it seeing as how promissing it looks but the only problem is it does not seem to want to work on Windows Server 2008.
hell i had a hard enough time just getting drivers and CCC to install in the first place so it does not suprise me. i can manually underclock my mem using MSI AB but i have to close and re-open it to go below 625MHz and this is a (normally) headless server and i can't be doing that after i plug it in it's usual place. so that's why i wanted to give your tool a try.

Basically using your tool i can clearly read the proper devices, i can even change the fan speed. but as soon as i try and change the core or voltage it gives me
ERROR: write_values: core speed 960 could not be set (1): False
replace core speed with voltage and i get the same error.

mem clocks are odd. if mem clocks alone would work with this i'd use it no problem but if i tell it to change mem clocks it THINKS it changes them. it "looks" like it works. but when i check with GPUz or even just look at my MH/s it obviouslly does not do anything.

here are my specs:
Windows server 2008 x64 SP1
Catalyst Control Center 11.6
ATI Display driver 11.4 (that's right. i have to install the display driver via device manager and then install CCC 11.6 without the 11.6 display driver to get ANYTHING at all to work in the first place)
running 2 reference MSI 6950 2GB cards fashed to unlock the shaders.

P.S if i got the general idea right, if i'm the first to post with a specific configuration (in my case windows server) i am entitled to a refund right? well if so please send me my .2 BTC to 17mycqd2fA8F7MwmMziayt7ipCf224Vjc3
If you can help me solve my problem i will send it back to you

Thanks, and keep up the awesome work.

truvativ, clocktweak work's great on my Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (5770x2 cards).
It something with your settings or card drivers.

hmm. how easy was yours to set up? because i spent two days trying to find drivers that would install and remain stable.
11.6 seemed to install without a problem but the clocks on my 6950 would fluctuate constantly giving me low hashrates and i read online that i'm not the only person with this problem and the solution was to revert to 11.4 drivers. that solved my issue but my windows server wouldn't even show me the 11.4 CCC and display drivers as options to install when using catalyst install manager so i had to install the display driver manually using device manager and install CCC from the 11.6 package.

oh i should mention when i tried 11.6 (driver and CCC) with a 6870 in my machine everything worked without a problem. (minus clocktweak, tried the 6870 before purchasing clocktweak)

i'm sure clocktweak works for some people. just does not seem to work with my setup (winserver2008 and shader unlocked 6950x2)

but if you have any ideas. please let me know.
thanks.

truvativ, I think it's not a clocktweak problem , and even not a windows 2008 problem. mb your card clocks are bios locked . Try to use any other clock tweaker f.e. saphiretrixx or msiafterburn (with overcloking options), if they won't work, you will need to  flash your card bios (only do it if u know what a u doing).

this will appear on all systems other than winXP. it is not a problem besides being annoying. I forgot to comment out a line while upgrading the AMDoverdrivectrl library to the new one with powerTune support.

btw:

Thorsten is doing an awesome job with that tool. If you are on linux it is the way to go.

I have sent 20% of the clocktweak profit so far to him and also 20% to netxshare, the developer of pyADL.

Anyone have any examples of monitoring temps with the errorlevels?

this should have been part of the update patch:

Code:
clocktweak -a
@echo cmd: errorlevel: %errorlevel%
@if %errorlevel% == 1 goto error
@echo.

clocktweak -r
@echo cmd: errorlevel: %errorlevel%
@if %errorlevel% == 1 goto error
@echo.

clocktweak -o -th 88
@echo cmd: errorlevel: %errorlevel%
@if %errorlevel% == 11 goto shutdown
@echo.

@goto end
:error
@echo something went wrong
@goto end

:shutdown
shutdown.exe -r -f -t 300 /c "overtemp - shutting down for good"
@goto end

:examples
@rem  ---------------------- some info and examples ---------------------- ---------------------- ----------------------

@rem    note: "if errorlevel x goto y" is not specific to one errorlevel but is true if errorlevel > x

shutdown.exe -r -f -t 300 /c "overtemp - shutting down for good"

@rem delay 1000 milliseconds
@rem @PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL

@rem you can use this as a script of its own to call before restarting miners for example
@echo kill all
@PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL
@PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL
@PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL
@PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 15000 >NUL

:end

already found a bug in the example batch file: the shutdown option -r will restart the system while -s would shut down.

anyway I send you the refund. every time I send bitcoins arround the world I am happy that it is possible

but i can overclock fine via MSI AB.
anyways. i tried setting the mem clock to the lowest AB does when launched and i actually get higher hashrates with my current settings than i did before so i'm happy with that. running 2 unlocked 6950 each are hitting ~411 MH/s and one is topping off at 74*c, the other at 68*c.
will give this software a try on my main computer once i get the OCing working again. i keep getting BSODS now with my dual 6870s and MSI AB when i try and change anything other than fan speed. woke up this morning and my comp was rebooted. i think i may have fried something haha

oh well.

Im getting a error when trying to change any settings.

You forgot the -y flag to accept the disclaimer.
As for the win_xp related thing don't worry about it. It just means you are not on windows xp.

Have noticed something weird though.  When I set mem to 300, core to 1000, and voltage to 1000. Clock Tweak says it is set. GPU-Z shows that mem and core are at 300. When I start mining, mem shoots to 1050, voltage to 1172 and core to 1000 according to GPU-Z. If I try to use clocktweak to reset, GPU-Z stays the same.  Will try to test this out a little bit more and reply back.

So I can confirm that on my setup, according to GPU-Z, the only settings that are changing are the core speed and fan speed while GUIMiner is running... Anyone else able to duplicate my issue on their setup?

in gpu-z are you on the "graphics card" tab or on the "sensors" tab?

The "graphics card" tab shows level 2 speeds while the "sensors" tab shows currently active clock speeds. that means if the card is idle there will be level 2 speeds displayed on the "graphics card" tab but level 0 speeds on the "sensors" tab. if the card is working hard then both will show level 2 speeds.

if you look at the "graphics card" tab it should always be the same as what clocktweak sets / reads (for level 2; refresh may take a couple of secs on the "graphics card" tab).

make sure you are looking at the right card. the order of gpus could be different in gpu-z and clocktweak!

Radeon 6950 (three of them, #0,4,8)

clocktweak -a8 -c750 -m300

-r  gives me
#8 Temp 68 Load 96 Fan 32 CoreL2 750 memL2 700

However, the Win7 widget as well as the ATI tools show cpu840 mem1250.
after some testing, the widget still wont show the core and gpu rates i set via clocktweak...

what to do, what to do?

edit: also, when I set all my GPUs to 840/300 and the mining SW crashes - will the GPU continue to wor at 840, or will it slow down with diminishing load?

edit: do i need to disable all other tweaking tools, such as the AMD VISION CONTROL CENTER I am using in order to effectively use ClockTweaker?

I was looking in the Sensors Tab and at the right card. I normally use the -a all but thought that might not be setting all of the GPUs, so I tried setting just one and that netted the same results...  When I am not mining, the core and mem speed drop to 300. Then start mining and they bump up to 1000 and 1050. Then stop mining and they go back down again to 300. Using GUI Miner. Would love to get this solved.

Thanks

Today after reinstallation of system on my miner the AMD GPU Clock Tool which previously was the only tool that could underclock and overclock over the BIOS limits my reference HIS 5850 refused to work.
The drivers installed were newest beta Catalyst 11.7. Then I've tried to use ClockTweak to do some overclocking in the BIOS limits range, but accidentally I've passed options for my second card - 900/300 and it worked! Not only the BIOS limits were bypassed, but previously this card could only go stable to 850. Very nice job AMD with that drivers

it is normal for the speeds to jump if you start mining - the card is switching from lazy powersafing 2d mode to hard work 3d mode. the problem is that the high values should stay to what you put them.

are you sure you are looking at the right card? order may be different between programs.

without load the gpu will slow down to level 0 speeds.

it is safer to only use one tool at a time, especially with 10.x drivers

on my sapphire 6950s, only a few select combinations work:

-c840 -m800 (-c840 with any lower setting than -m800 will result in -m1250)
-c800 -m700 (doesnt go lower than -m700 at all!)

only the -v option i havent figured out yet. if someone can give me a working number, please? so far i have tried 900, 950, 975, 1000, 1050, 1075.

still stays at 1100.

also, if someone knows a working -m lower than, please kick it my way!

i dig the program. nice work!

According to GPU-Z, the Graphics Card tab says Clock is 1000 and Mem is 300, but the sensor tab shows Clock @ 1000 and Mem @ 1050. Ever seen it show two different values?

Can someone with a 4 card 68XX setup check to make sure everything is working properly? I just tried ClockTweak on a 1 card setup and it seemed to set everything right.  I am starting to think that similar to how Afterburner doesn't work on a 4 card setup, maybe ClockTweak isn't working too.

if the card was idle it is normal to show different values. was it? also it might take some time to refresh.

ClockTweak is working fine with a four card setup, I have four cards myself and lots of other people have confirmed it.

Still there seems to be something weird going on with your system. Please do this to help me debug:

do not start any miners yet
run "clocktweak -r -l"
run with your parameters: "clocktweak.exe -a all -c1000 -m300 -v1000 -s95 -y"
run "clocktweak -r -l"
start your miners on two cards
run "clocktweak -r -l"

post all the outputs here in a code tag as before.

other things you can try:
with cards in idle and all cooled down set fan speeds of single cards high to determine adapter# for each physical card. also take a look at gpu-z so you know the order in gpu-z. you may want to write it down (I did =) ).

start a single miner on a single card and check with clocktweak / gpu-z which cards gets hot to determine gpu/adapter# for your mining software.

with the miners running change clock / mem speeds of single cards and check if hashrates change.

When mining on 2 of the GPUs, GPUZ is reporting that the GPUs that are NOT mining are running 300 & 300 and the GPUs that are mining are running 980 & 1050. If I change Clock speed, the MH/s do change but from the beginning it always looked like clock and fan speed worked & voltage and memory speed didn't.

v0.8.0b displays a wrong coreL0 clock speed (coreL2 instead)

still it is kinda awkward that your memL0 and memL2 speed are both at 300. that should not be possible. I assume you did not make a reboot before these readouts. try a memclock of 303 instead of 300. it looks like 300 is your bios limit.

what driver version do you use? it seems to accept clock speed levels out of order.

if you like you can try the hidden options (mentioned in the readme)  -memlevelX  and -corelevelX

you can try this procedure:

clocktweak -y -a all -m 280 -memlevel0
clocktweak -y -a all -m 290 -memlevel1
clocktweak -y -a all -m 300 -l

Made a simple auto temperature control .bat script using ClockTweak tool http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=28319.0

It can to control gpu core temperature by changing core speed depends on Minumum and Maximum margin values.

P.S. phelix, I made it my own way, so last features with errorlevel were not useful

P.P.S. phelix, don't you want to compile linux version of clocktweak?  Now it is more functional than other linux tools.

To get other voltages you just need to get a copy of your bios by using GPU-Z.
Then take RBE Bios editor and check the different states for their clock and voltage. Voilá there you go. Take the next lower voltage setting and start tweaking - big fun!

So now that you've got JSON implemented, I think I'll start work on some monitoring software based on clocktweak

I bashed something together for myself but it's very hackish, nothing trapped for or commented, messy code and bashed together in the quickest language I knew (Classic ASP).

It's up at http://codinginmysleep.com/miners/ for critique. Pretty basic interface, color-coded HUD at the top for each miner and the simple clocktweak -r -n output below. Not pretty but it functions. Would anyone be interested in something of this nature?

nice work! an advantage of doing it your way instead of using the errorlevel method is that you can control each gpu separately. I am still a bit sceptical about the sweet spot / clock vs hashrate linearity issue. I hope to find time to build a sweet spot scanner soon.

Maybe there is another way to throttle the gpu - e.g. by slowing down a cpu core by issuing HLT commands or by somehow slowing down the gpu (powertune is perfect but only available on 6xxx cards).

I will think about a linux version - unfortunately my experience with linux is limited.

Classic ASP?  Python rulez!

I like the color coding.

p.s. could it be that some of your cards are a little lazy? Mine have to work hard at 99% load all the time.

you can do as Jabba suggested and use RBE to find out your valid Voltage levels. Probably the next lower level is 1000mV. If you try to set that clocktweak will happily accept it but nothing happens? I have an Idea of what happens. Unfortunately it will probably not work on your system with the current clocktweak strategy. Maybe I have to rewrite the voltage setting part a little.

Are you aware that you will 99% not be able to run 840Mhz at a lower voltage level?

Did you set your level1 memclocks (699 / 799) manually?

I've never touched any level1 thingies (knowingly).

I've added the GPUObserver Widget and it seems that one of the programs gets it wrong.

with -c840 -m800 -v1000, clocktweak nicely shows CoreL2:840 MemL2:800 mVoltL2:1000
However, GPUObserver shows 840MHz Core, 1250MHz Mem and 1.10V

seems funny that all of a sudden i shouldnt be able to change the memclock. it DID work yesterday. I have since updated from catalyst 11.5 to 11.6, might this be a problem? hashrates are fine and all, however one of the card is at 81C now witht the fan at 100% while the others are at 65C.

-y -a all -m 200 -memlevel0
-y -a all -m 300 -memlevel1
-y -a all -m 800

works like a charm.
i guess the BIOS keeps me from going below 800. still shaves a cool 4°C off every card.
if you find a way to enable me to set the memclock to 50/100/200 or so, that'd ba brilliant.
not sure if i still want to try to undervolt the cards unless you find a way to severely underclock the memory.

Hi Folks,

reagrding the throttling of the GPU there's a much easier solution available.
I remember that there's a switch for the miners like your -v -w128 switch which tells the GPU to slow down.

I just cannot find the thread where it was discussed.
By adding this switch to a command center (that's where all your efforts and ideas lead to) handling would be improved a lot.

BTW: ever thought of managing all mining rigs and their cards from a single console?

Lowering aggresion comes to mind. The only problem with that is that you have to stop and restart the miner.

Which can also be done via commandline - so this should be no big issue.

I'm able to set a memclock of 300 and have it read back as 300 in clocktweak, but the card is likely still running at stock 1050. i can't underclock the memory at all in afterburner and CCC. hashrates are the same.

There are three sets of clock speeds:
Level0: 2D
Level1: intermediate - limits?
Level2: 3D

The levels can not be the same, there has to be a gap of ~10Mhz or so. Level 1 has to be in between level 0 and level 2.

With -r -l  you can read out all clock speed levels. Depending on these you can determine mem clock values to try. Level0 may or may not be the lower limit.

You could try with these hidden options if your mem clock speed level 1 is higher than your desired mem clock speed level 2:

-y -a all -m 200 -memlevel0
(only necessary if memlevel0 clock it is lower than your desired memlevel2 clock)
raise the value if you get an error (Bios limit!)

-y -a all -m 302 -memlevel1
has to be above level0 and below the level2 clock speed you want to set

-y -a all -m 330
changes level2 (= default target)

I hope it helps. For most cards ClockTweak will do this automatically but there seems to be an issue with some of the 6xxx cards and/or latest drivers. I will redo this for the next release.

You can try my gpu core auto control script, based on clocktweak http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=28319.0 .
I'm testing it now, and see that this works great! In plans to manage aggression the same way, but there is the same with gpu core trottling.

For what? I think it must be only monitoring dashboard, rigs must work automatically.

HTH,

updated to latest clocktweak 0.9.0b

still getting failures on my XFX 5870 when trying > 900Mhz clock - but I can still set the clock manually using AMD Clock tool... I never did get a reply to my original message (quoted)

Here is the -x output if it helps:

6870 - XFX (http://xfxforce.com/en-us/products/graphiccards/hd%206000series/6870.aspx?product=29192)

I'm able to set a memclock of 300 and have it read back as 300 in clocktweak, but the card is likely still running at stock 1050. i can't underclock the memory at all in afterburner and CCC. hashrates are the same.

There are three sets of clock speeds:
Level0: 2D
Level1: intermediate - limits?
Level2: 3D

The levels can not be the same, there has to be a gap of ~10Mhz or so. Level 1 has to be in between level 0 and level 2.

With -r -l  you can read out all clock speed levels. Depending on these you can determine mem clock values to try. Level0 may or may not be the lower limit.

You could try with these hidden options if your mem clock speed level 1 is higher than your desired mem clock speed level 2:

-y -a all -m 200 -memlevel0
(only necessary if memlevel0 clock it is lower than your desired memlevel2 clock)
raise the value if you get an error (Bios limit!)

-y -a all -m 302 -memlevel1
has to be above level0 and below the level2 clock speed you want to set

-y -a all -m 330
changes level2 (= default target)

I hope it helps. For most cards ClockTweak will do this automatically but there seems to be an issue with some of the 6xxx cards and/or latest drivers. I will redo this for the next release.

That was it. After using -r -l to see m0 is already at 750 and m1 at 1050, I used -y -a all -m 800 -memlevel1. At that point I can use afterburner to change all the way down to 300. I think with memlevel1 at 1050 it was stuck at 1050.

Hashing rates don't see any improvement but there is a noticeable temp drop. Do voltages have the same level0, level1 restriction? I have level2 voltage set lower than both level0 and level1.

Also noticed a small bug:
-v VOLTAGE, --voltage VOLTAGE
Set voltage for level 2 [mV]. Example: -c 1050

- ive tried with and without miners
- ive tried with and without prior overclock (using TriXX)

im using Sapphire Trixx to overclock for now

all my systems are running Win7 Ent x64

seems it doesn`t work for me
