Windows 7: MSI Afterburner

MSI Afterburner

Hi.

I have recently installed MSI afterburner on my system to set the graphics card fan speed to run at 40%. I have noticed that some of the overclocking options within MSI burner are greyed out. Is this something to do with the program?


I have attached a picture of the issue.

Thanks

Wonder if it has something to do with the release notes for 2.10 beta 7,

MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 Beta 7 (2011-01-31) - Guru3D.com Forums

Quote:
MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 Beta 7 is ready, changes list includes:

- the official support of GTX 560 Ti / GT 440.
- Now Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 runtime libraries are included in distributive
- Hardware database is now configured to force fan duty cycle monitoring to be performed via slower AMD ADL SDK path on AMD RADEON 4870 X2 and 5790 series cards
- Changed way of unlocking unofficial overclocking on AMD graphics cards to make overclocking newbies think harder before enabling this functionality blindly and coming to support forums with fake bugreports
- Added alternate unofficial overclocking path allowing keeping PowerPlay active on some modern ASIC families during overclocking
- Fan control settings are now being forcibly reapplied after changing the clocks via unofficial overclocking path to bypass bug in AMD driver causin the fan control settings to be reset to defaults after programming PowerPlay table

To enable unofficial overclocking in this version it is necessary to:

- Set UnofficialOverclockingEULA field to the following text: I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it
- Set UnofficialOverclockingMode to 1 to keep PowerPlay active (may not work on old ASICs), 2 to traditionally disable PowerPlay or to 0 to temporary disable unofficial overclocking path

Hi

Thanks for your reply I also tried an earlier version of the program 2.0 and the issue was the same in that as well.

Have a poke around at that forum seeing as it is more or less the official Afterburner forum.
