    GPU Overclocking Win 8 Pro


    Hi.
    Is there any way to overclock my HD 4850 under Windows 8 Pro Final? From what I know, I'm unable to install any catalyst software under this system, so I don't have access to ati overdrive. Other OC apps seem to not work properly, or they don't start at all. For example - There are no Mhz tweaking bars in Riva Tuner I just installed. I'm quite familiar with overclocking, so I know all risks involved. My overclocked core 2 duo runs fine under my Windows 8, so I want my GPU overclocked as well. It was OC'ed under XP and performance increase was suprisingly nice.
    I would like to stick to Win 8 cause of DX10 and because I think Microsoft did a really great job this time.


    Thanks.

    ATI don't support Windows 8 for your 4850, but for OC it , have you try Afterburner ?

    I'm sure I've tried it and I don't remember what it was, but something was wrong. Maybe it's just me so I'll check that one out one more time or I'll just keep searching for other software. Eh, damn You Ati! 4850 is still very popular, at least in my region. Thanks for Your reply : ).
