Windows 7: Has anyone used Trixx to Overclock a GPU ?

Has anyone used Trixx to Overclock a GPU ?

I'm wondering should i use Trixx for my CF Hd7970 set up

I'm currently going through CCC with a clock of 1000/1430 stock clocks being 925/1375 max being 1125/1575 power setting at 10% max 20%

I have installed Trixx and checked out what kind of clock boost i would get and i could go 1500/2100 but no voltage control just my power that i can bring up to 20%

Now I don't mind defaulting CCC and using Trixx but I would like to know has anyone used this before or have a HD 7970 and has used Trixx software I don't want to brick my cards I don't need to mention how much they go for you guys already know

Thanks in advance also my card has a Dual Bios Both of them if that makes it easier for a reply

Trixx is AMD only I believe, si I haven't used it - but have you tried Afterburner?

It's one of the better apps out there and it should allow you to unlock your voltage (found in the settings)

It looks like it will be good

I opened it and it gave me more clock room by atleast 300 mhz gpu clock and memory clock was 600mhz increase over Default /Max settings if i chose to use the settings

I just don't want to get excited use the software and botch my cards

Like i mentioned about it has no voltage settings just power % gpu /core clocks

the power % goes from 0-20%

even if i boost it up to 20% i doubt it would be stable at higher clocks because no way to see what you are putting into it voltages wise

posted my current clocks / second is max clocks if i decided to go there

right now 940/1410 I been fiddling with these cards there really good but they get pretty hot in this summer weather

ok I set it at 1120/1600 power 15% fan speed 70% vddc 1200 does that sound like a reasonable OC ?

Idle is 46c by the way

One more thing I didsabled ULP mode before i did it

I just ran left4dead too and my temps only climed to about 54c so i will call it a day with this one and hope it won't crash but hell it was really playing buttery smooth and it happen to get a little brighter
