  • MSI Afterburner

Platform-agnostic PC overclockers have MSI's venerable Afterburner utility to tweak their video-card collection. Afterburner (free) is designed to work with MSI's own products, but in actuality works with most modern hardware.

Afterburner's controls here are very simple, dressed up with gray gradients and green glowing boxes for appearance's sake, but the basics are well represented. You'll find voltage, core, and shader clock controls, memory speeds, and fan settings, along with profile presets, startup options and a videocard hardware monitor. You won't get the details provided by the other utilities here, but you won't find the more focused, no-nonsense approach Afterburner utilizes with those either.

Note: The "Try it for free" button on the Product Information page takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
