Tools

The toolbox. It is the carpenter and the mechanic’s most important tool, just as it is the overclocker’s most important tool. Without a toolbox, you can’t tweak and adjust your graphics card. In this guide, I will list the most relevant only. However, more less relevant tools is to be found out there, and if you want to look for them, Google is your very best friend.

MSI Afterburner

MSI is the producer that has had the most luck with their OC-tool. MSI Afterburner is approved by a wide variety of overclockers all over the world. Besides that, amazingly many people know the software, and the program is compatible with a wide variety of graphics cards. The compatibility though, is starting to lack as results of the slow reduce in stock cards. More and more producers equip their cards with custom PCB and their own cooling solution. That means that the voltage regulator is not always supported by Afterburner.

MSI Kombustor

As supplement to Afterburner, the tool Kombustor exists, and you automatically download it with Afterburner. This is the tool you use to test the stability of your OC.

ASUS GPU Tweak

As one of the world’s largest graphics card producers, ASUS of course, want a slice of the cake too, when it comes to making OC software. They have made a program called ASUS GPU Tweak, and it works very well and just as it’s meant to. It gives you the option to adjust the voltage of a wide variety of ASUS graphics cards.

Sapphire Trixx

Just as ASUS and MSI Sapphire has been developing software. It ended up in “Trixx”, which in many ways reminds of Afterburner. Trixx is one of the most popular OC tool after Afterburner, and the program works with a wide variety of graphics cards, of course including Sapphires own ones.

EVGA Precision

Of course, EVGA had to try to make their own OC tool too. Unfortunately, EVGA didn’t do as well as many of the others. EVGA’s tool is not very well-known, and only few cards are supported. A bit sad, because it is a nice piece of software.

TechPowerUP! GPU-Z

I bet you know CPU-s, which tells you all you need about your processor, but when you need to get information about your graphics card, there is an alternative. It’s called GPU-Z, and it has been developed by the reviewers on TechPowerUP!. It is a must-have to have installed, and it is generally a sweet little tool.
