Software Description

Download MSI AfterBurner from MSI. This is an incredible handy overclock utility for MSI graphics cards.

Attention - this is the OLD download section of, click here to visit the new and up-to date one.

Afterburner is powered by our own Rivatuner engine, but this software comes with a few extra's. AfterBurner will support both ATI and NVIDIA graphics cards, Voltage regulation on the GPU, overclocking on core, shader and memory domains, GPU load levels (ATI), fan speed adjustment, device information .. and a really wicked graphical (configurable) monitor.

So with combined forces MSI will bring you their new AfterBurner overclock software. AfterBurner, as in giving that airplane an extra boost of power. The end-result (we feel) is a great looking user-friendly overclocking experience, with on-the-fly advanced user options .. including something I know many of you will like, VRM voltage control.

  • Overclocking:
    • Up to 85% overclocking capability
    • Over voltage function to significantly increase overclocking potential
    • Core/Shader/Memory clock adjustment
    • Core/Shader clock Link/Unlink capability
  • Monitor:
    • Clock/Voltage/Temperature/Fan Speed/Frame rate real-time monitor
    • Maximum/Minimum value for easy record of system condition
    • Real-time On-Screen-Display information in games
    • Real-time information in Windows Tray Icon
    • Detach mode for hardcore monitor style
  • Profile:
    • 5 Profile to easy save/load user customized setting
    • Profile hot-key for easy and quick switch in games
    • 2D/3D automatic profile switching for difference scenario
  • Special Function:
    • Advanced fan speed control for different speed under different temperature trigger points
    • Mutil-GPU independent or synchronous control for clock/voltage/fan speed
    • Information button for graphics card driver version, BIOS version, identification, OSD status and update link
    • User Customized skin function
    • Apply overclocking setting at system startup

Please bare in mind that this software works with MSI graphics cards and a handful of reference based cards, you could be lucky though ;)

    Afterburner v.1.2.0 (2009-10-12)

    • Added NVIDIA G 210 and GT 240 series graphics cards support
    • Added voltage control for custom design MSI N220GT and N240GT series graphics cards with uP6262 voltage regulators
    • Added intitial AMD RADEON HD 5750 and AMD RADEON HD 5770 series graphics cards support
    • Added Logitech keyboards LCD displays support. Now it is possible to display hardware monitor data in Logitech keyboards LCD 
    • Extended I2C address scanning range for uP6208 voltage regulators to allow supporting voltage control on non-MSI custom design graphics cards equipped with uP6208
    • Fixed on-board memory size detection for AMD RADEON HD 5000 series graphics cards
    • Now option also affects voltage control
    • Fixed database entry for AMD RADEON HD 4890 series graphics cards. Afterburner no longer adjusts 2D voltage instead of 3D voltage on AMD RADEON HD 4890
    • Fixed database entry for AMD RADEON HD 5850 series graphics cards. Afterburner no longer adjusts UVD voltage instead of 3D voltage on AMD RADEON HD 5850
    • Automatic profiles manager is now restarted after resuming from suspended mode
    • Revised VRM access synchronization protocol for safer simultaneous VRM polling by multiple software products at the same time 
    • Added setting to the context menu of detached hardware monitor window. When this option is disabled, hardware monitor window can be minimized to the taskbar while staying in detached mode
    • Now it is possible to pause hardware monitor activity via option in the context menu of hardware monitor window
    • Maximum allowed hardware polling period has been extended from 5 to 60 seconds
    • Added configuration file setting allowing power users to display performance profiler status informaition in the hardware monitor window. The information allows estimating average CPU performance hit caused by hardware monitor and software automatic fan control layers
    • Optimized timer message queue processing under high CPU load conditions for better hardware monitoring and software automatic fan control events handling
    • Reduced CPU usage for simultaneous GPU clock frequency and GPU usage readings on AMD graphics cards, both values are being read in single pass now
    • Maximum limits has been extended from 1000 to 1500MHz for core clock graph and from 2000 to 2500MHz for shader clock and memory clock graphs
    • Added readme file and option to display it in the installer
    • Now tab is not displayed in advanced settings window if there are no fan control capable GPUs in the system
    • Updated context help files, added more hints to button help
