Guys

I have just installed the new cats 12.2's, for my ASUS 6950>6970 Crossfire setup.
Problem is Smart Doctor is reporting "can not find Graphics card information"
What is up with these drivers?, are these the WHQL certfied?
Anyway under ASUS Smartdoctor's settings, I check the "Overclocking range enhancement" option.
This allows me to bypass CCC limits in Overdrive, and set up my OC profiles for both cards at 900MHz core and 1375MHz for the VRAM.
I have heard that if the drivers are not signed Smart Doctor does not like them!
Any other ideas to bypass the CCC limits in Overdrive?
I uninstall Smart Doctor after it bypasses the limits anyway!
I think it performs a reg hack, but i could be wrong.
This is a bit frustrating!

Below is the text to make 2 reg entries that will bypass the cc limits the same way as smart doctor.

Smart doctor most of the time would only unlock the 1st card anyway.

You have to run both reg entries each time after you install cats, then restart pc.

are u using a 6970 bios? if so, that why Smart Doctor is reporting "can not find Graphics card information"

if you use your 6950 bios and unlock the shaders, Smart Doctor will work

i've tryed the reg hack above before but it didn't work on my 6950.. my 6990 has unlock limits anyway. so i just use Smart Doctor to unlock the 6950 limits.

Did you change the first line from:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000]

To(I presume your 6950 is in the second lane):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0002]

Thanks for the replies guys!
My 6950's just have the shaders unlocked, and at stock voltage through Smart Doctor, Overdrive and my game profiles I set the clocks to 900/1375 for both cards.
For what i have learned, ATi have changed the way, with the release of 12.2 the way the cards are overclocked, so an update from ASUS should be on the cards for SD to accommodate this.
The fix (reg hack) works also I must say, but I would need to redo all my pre-defined profiles to allow this to work.
Cheers again,

Jon.

My friend had similar problems with crossfire 6950's, would reset.clocks when.he updated drivers and sometimes 2nd card would stay at stock clocks. Best thing to do ( i.did it for him) was to.bios flash both cards with a custom bios. Then no afterburner needed.

Worked a treat mate thanks! Albeit I had to re-write some of my game profiles all done now though! Clocks 900/1375 confirmed through AfterBurner on both cards! Power control at +20% for both cards. Happy days!
Have to say really p*ssed of with the poor support for Smart Doctor.
Thanks again mate!

Jon.
