Enable unofficial overclocking after Catalyst 12.2

Hey! Yesterday I stumbled upon the problem of not being able to enable unofficial OC in MSI Afterburner after installing the latest amd drivers.

AMD has removed two dll files in Catalyst 12.2 that still existed in version 12.1. Therefore if 12.2 happens to be the first driver you install on your new system you won't have those two dll files on your computer. This causes MSI Afterburner to fail to set the unofficial overclocking values.

To fix the problem you need to download the two dll files and place them in your system folder. The files should be placed like this:

atipdl64.dll - to - \Windows\System32\
atipdlxx.dll - to - \Windows\SysWOW64\

You need to REBOOT afterwards.

The files can be downloaded here:


Do this at your own risk. This solution might or might not work with future Catalyst releases.
