How to use MSI Afterburner
« on: 25-August-12, 18:29:55 »

The MSI Afterburner is a great tool for monitoring your vga's health status as well as overclocking it including tweaking voltages.

Monitoring

In case you came her with a vga related problems you might be asked to tell about the load and idle temps of your vga.
So first we focus on how to monitor temps.

First we start Afterburner and see this.



Just for monitoring we don't need the sliders visible as these are for tweaking/oc and we take care of that later. To the right there is a window with different graphs of all kinds of temps and voltages. There you can montiore the idle status but that won't really help you to see what happens in a game. You will only know about your temps under load in the moment your gaming and not when already leaving the game. At least the graphs will show the temps as a graph so you can read up temps of past times also but it is quite complicated to find the temp spike of the right time and read up the value.

It's easier to have the temps and voltages displayed in the game with an OSD (note: OSD doesn't work in 64bit applications). To get that work you need to activate it.

First click on "Settings"



Now go to "monitoring" in the Settings menu



In "Active hardware monitoring graphs" you can choose what should be displayed in OSD.



On the left you have the possible graphs to be selected. When you click on a graph you activate it and the symbol next to it lights up. Now you have to choose the properties of that graph. That is done by clicking on "Show in On-Screen Display" or "Show in Logitech keyboard LCD Display" or "Show in tray icon". Choosing "Show in On-Screen Display" means the graph will be shown in the game while LCD means it will be shown on a supported LCD of a Logitech Keyboard (e.g. G510). These both options are therefor ideal to checkout load temps and voltages.

Please note that there is also a graph for Famerate to be activated to even monitor FPS in games

After setting the graphs you want to be displayed just click on "ok" and you are done. NOTE: Only graphs of sensors that can be read out can be selected. Some cards won't be able to support gpu voltage monitoring hence that graph can't be selected.

If needed you can also add hotkeys for the OSD in On-Screen Display. By clicking on "More" you have the ability to mod the look and layout of the OSD as well as setting up profiles.


 


Now after starting a game you can see the graphs selected displayed inside your game so you can see what happens while you are gaming and you can also find out how your vga's status will change in any game situation

   



Fan control

After monitoring temps you might have seen too high temps and want to lower them or you want more cooling in oc attempts. Also could be you saw low temps but your card is very noisy because of high fan speeds. All that could make it necessary to change the fan speed manually instead of auto control


After deactivating  auto control by clicking on "Auto" you can move the slider between Min and Max to select the fan speed in %. Setting 68 therefor means fan will be running at 68% of it's full speed. After selecting click on "Apply" to apply the chosen fan speed.

Besides a static speed you can also program a custom fan profile with clicking on "Fan" in "Settings" afterwards just deactivate auto control and activate "User Define"





Checking stability with Kombustor

Along with Afterburner the downloaded archive also contains Kombustor. Kombustor is a burn-in vga tool like Furmark which will apply very massive load to your vga and will reveal thermal and stability problems when letting it run for some time.

After installing you can start it out of Afterburner by clicking on the "K" to left




Overclocking and Overvolting

With the Core Clock and Memory Clock sliders you can tweak the clockrates of the Gpu and the VRAM. The Mhz value selected adds or reduces the stock clockrates. That means e.g. setting +65 for Gpu will add 65Mhz to the stock clockrate. Setting -50Mhz will reduce the stock clockrate by 50Mhz. To apply your oc remember to always click on "Apply"



Overvolting with the overvolting slider will work the same way what means what you set will be added to the stock voltage. Note that overvolting gpu on Kepler (GTX600) is limited on non unlocked cards (Lightning/Hawk) to the nvidia max of 1.175v and setting anything else will therefor be useless.



If overvolting is greyed out and can't be changed you have to activate it in "Settings"/"General".
Simply check "Unlock voltage control" and "Unlock voltage monitoring"

NOTE: Despite mistakable informations on the web the only MSI Radeon 7850/7770 cards able to overvolt are R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/(OC) and R7770 Power Edition 1GD5/(OC). Due to technical restrictions all other 7850/7770 models can't be overvolted therefor overvoltage slider won't be available.


Triple overvolting will only be available with Lightning, Hawk or Power Edition cards and is a unique MSI feature that won't work with any other manufacturers card.

On supported cards you can access it (after enabling overvoltage, see above) when clicking on the grey symbol next to the voltage slider

the voltage slider will then change to triple overvoltage (core/mem/aux)

Note that triple overvoltage for Lightning and Power Edition GTX680 & GTX670 vgas will require Afterburner version 2.2.3, the latest GTX 660 & 650 cards will require Afterburner 2.2.4 or above. GTX680/770/780 Lightning users must use an unlocked Afterburner version for full triple overvoltage abilities (Nvidia gpu voltage limit). Until Version 3.0.0 Beta 17 a special SE variant was required. With 3.0.0 Beta 18 the SE version has been merged to the normal version. To unlock the advanced voltage settings simply go to "General" tab of the settings, check "unlock Voltage control and choose "extended MSI"





Power Limit



The Power Limit slider is only accessible on GTX600 or above cards as it is required to modify the unique GPU boost feature. GPU boost is nvidia's auto oc feature for Kepler cards and will increase clockrate when not reaching the pre-defined TDP value under load. With the Power limit slider you can change the TDP limit in %. Anything over 100% will extend the limit and enable the gpu to boost clockrate while already at 100% TDP.

If the Power limit is not visible although you are using a GTX600 vga you chose the wrong afterburner skin in "Settings"/"User Interface" The Power Limit slider will only be visible with "Default MSI Afterburner Skin"

----> --->



Temp Limit

With the new GeForce GTX7xx / Titan series vgas came an enhanced version of the boost introduced with GTX6xx vgas. Boost 2.0 adds a Temp Limit to the previous Power Limit. So now the available boost is not only determined by the Power Limit but also by the set Temp limit. To change the Temp limit you need a supporting version of Afterburner (3.00 Beta 10 and above). Click on the down arrow next to the Power limit slider and Temp Limit becomes available.

--->

By default Temp limit is set to a target temp of 79°C what means anything below will allow max boost. Increasing Temp limit will allow boosting at higher temps. In standard configuration Power and Temp limit are linked what means increasing Power Limit will also increase Temp limit. If you want to change that and set individually uncheck "Link". Clicking on "Prioritize" you can decide if Temp or TDP Limit should be the primary factor to determine boost.



Gaming APP

Another thing which needs to be kept in mind is that maximum clockrates for the latest GeForce GTX7xx Gaming requires running >>Gaming APP<<. Switch to Gaming Mode (N770 TF 2GD5/OC (GeForce GTX 770 GAMING)) or OC Mode (N780 TF 3GD5/OC (GeForce GTX 780 GAMING)) to allow maximum boost clockrates.




Oc Profiles and starting up with oc



After tweaking clockrates, voltages and power limit you can setup five profiles with these values. Just click on a profile number followed by clicking save. Now you can change between your profiles by choosing the number of it.
If you want to startup with the oc applied just click on "Apply overclocking at system startup" and make sure the green button left on that lights up in green.



Dragon Army Skins

A nice modification for Afterburner are the new MSI Gaming series skins to adapt to the latest MSI Gaming lineup: http://game.msi.com/

Just download the skins >>here<< and copy them in your Skins folder in the MSI Afterburner main folder. After restarting Afterburner you can now choose the Dragon Army Skins in "Settings"/"User Interface". Dargon Army Skins are included by default from Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 18 and above and can there be chosen like shown before.

Version update:


Afterburner 2.2.4 is out click >>here<< for download

This will add support for the latest GTX 660 & 650 cards.

NOTE: Due to a Nvidia decision to force MSI to limit the max gpu voltage for all GTX600 cards (including Lightning & PE) to 1.175v there won't be real gpu overvoltage avilable with version 2.2.4. Only Nvidia dictating this despite the lack of any technical reason is to blame here. For GTX680 and GTX670 users considering oc it is highly recommended to stay at >>version 2.2.3<<

Version update:

Afterburner 2.2.5 (beta 1) is out click >>here<< for download

Very slim official changelog: - Added new graphics cards support

More detail from Unwinder (programmer)
Quote from: Alexey Nicolaychuk aka Unwinder, RivaTuner creator in http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=370422
Small not on this release: it is still an old good 2.2.3 binaries with altered database to add support for new MSI cards like 660 Hawk series. So there is zero need to upgrade if you don't own it.

Conclusion: It is not limited like 2.2.4 but it also offers no improvements compared to 2.2.3 except for additional vga support. From testing unlike 2.2.3 no correct voltage monitoring for GTX680 Lightnings but just target voltages. Great news there will be a GTX660 Hawk!

GTX680/670 users should stay with >>version 2.2.3<<. GTX660(ti) PE/Hawk users should upgrade.

Version update (sorry for adding quite late  :hypocrite: ):
Afterburner 2.3.0 is out click >>here<< for download

Impressive changelog:

• Added new graphics cards support.
 • Fixed rounding error in VID generation for offset voltage control mode for CHL8318 voltage generators
 • Now it is possible to start MSI Afterburner in limited functionality mode on the systems with no supported AMD or NVIDIA graphics card. This allows you to use hardware independent features like high-performance Predator™ video capture module on any PC, even if it is using integrated Intel graphics
 • Added frametime graph to hardware monitoring module. The graph is displaying the maximum frame time on each sampling period and it is useful for detecting microstutters, which are invisible on averaged framerate graph.
 • All documentation is now provided in PDF format
 • Added unified videomemory usage monitoring implementation for Windows 8
 • Removed obsolete GPU type selection settings for some AMD graphics cards
 • Removed obsolete shader clock monitoring for NVIDIA Kepler graphics cards
 • Improved hardware database format, now custom design MSI graphics cards are calibrated in separate OEM file to minimize the risk of introducing typos in reference design cards definitions when updating the database
 • MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 4.4.0. New version gives you the following major improvements in Predator™ video capture module:

 o Improved RTV1 compression algorithm. New compression approach combines DXTC, RLE and uncompressed data saving algorithms and allows you to increase image quality at the cost of decreasing compression ratio, while keeping extremely fast compression performance. Please take a note that the previous RTV1 compression implementation is equal to the lowest possible 25% image quality/compression ratio balance in new implementation
 o Added 64-bit version of RivaTuner Video Codec. Now RTV1 videos are playable and editable in 64-bit applications (e.g. 64-bit Sony Vegas PRO or Adobe Premiere PRO CS6)
 o Huffman tables are no longer omitted by MJPG encoder to improve compatibility with applications using limited MJPG decoders (e.g. Sony Vegas PRO)
 o Now both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of RivaTuner Video Codec can optionally decode MJPG videos. Third party MJPG codec installation is no longer required to play or edit MJPG videos with omitted Huffman tables in some applications with limited MJPG decoding support (e.g. Sony Vegas PRO). MJPG decoder can be enabled in video capture compatibility properties
 o Multisource audio recording. Now it is possible to record audio from two independent audio sources (e.g. game audio and microphone sound) in two independent audio tracks then mix them later in video editing application (e.g. Sony Vegas PRO) or optionally mix multiple tracks in realtime during capture
 o Now it is possible to downmix multichannel audio to stereo in stereo rip and stereo mix modes. Previously available stereo rip mode simply rips front left and right audio channels from multichannel audio ******, whilst new stereo mix mode merges audio from front left, right, center and surround channels
 o WASAPI audio packets with timestamp error are no longer included into output audio ******
 o External VFW codecs support. Now in addition to built-in uncompressed, RTV1 and MJPG encoders it is also possible to encode video using external VFW codecs installed in the system. It is recommended to download, install and use Lagarith Lossless Codec for lossless video capturing or x264vfw codec for the maximum compression ratio, MSI Afterburner was developed to provide the best compatibility with these codecs
 o Video ****** synchronization is now based on inserting NULL frames instead of indexing existing frames
 o Frame dropping implementation has been improved to provide compatibility with external VFW codecs using temporal compression and deltaframes
 o Now output video dimensions are always cropped to be multiples of 2 to provide compatibility with external VFW codecs
 o Now framerate is calculated on each frame with sliding 1000ms window approach instead of calculating it once per second
 o Improved rendering pipeline flushing implementation for Direct3D9 applications provides more stable framerate when capturing videos with VSync enabled
 o New dynamic Direct3D rendering pipeline flushing approach can decrease videocapture related performance hit when capturing videos in Direct3D applications with high rendering framerates
 o Added On-Screen Display support for Direct3D 10 applications in Windows 8
 o Added German localization
 o Updated profiles list

Like all versions following 2.2.3 OSD stays dysfunctional for GTX680 voltage monitoring with just displaying target voltages. While startup clock settings now are set flawlessly (what doesn't work with 2.2.3) already verified stable settings turn out to be unstable with 2.3.0. None the less according to Unwinder there is no software voltage lock for Kepler cards in 2.3.0. Stable overvolting settings now being unstable seems to indicate different though.
With GTX670 PE/680 Lightning I'd stay at 2.2.3

Latest Version update (almost in time  :hypocrite: ):
Afterburner 2.3.1 is out click >>here<< for download

Changelog:

Quote from:  from Guru3D forums http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=374014
• Now MSI Afterburner optionally allows you to detect VRM defaults without rebooting the PC
 • Added voltage control support for UEFI GOP BIOS for MSI R7970 Lightning Boost Edition series graphics cards
 • Now MSI Afterburner displays the list of assigned global hotkeys in “i” window
 • Now MSI Afterburner properties window is resizable to provide compatibility with low-resolution desktops (less than 1280x1024 with 100% DPI)
 • Added new “Enable hardware control and monitoring” option to compatibility properties. This option can be useful if you are using MSI Afterburner for framerate monitoring and videocapture only and don't want to risk suddenly overclocking your PC
 • Added NCT7511Y thermal sensors support to provide compatibility with future MSI graphics cards
 • Added workaround for possible VID rounding issues for all supported voltage generator models
 • Updated Italian localization
 • MSI On-Screen Display server has been upgraded to version 4.5.0. New version gives you the following improvements:
 o Improved audio mixer architecture provides better extendibility and better audio tracks synchronization when mixing multiple audio tracks in one
 o Push-To-Talk audio recording support. Now you can assign a hotkey for each audio stream and record unmuted audio only when the hotkey is pressed
 o Updated German localization

Like all versions following 2.2.3 OSD stays almost dysfunctional for GTX680 Lightning voltage monitoring with just displaying target voltages. No word on the voltage lock matter but the target voltages indicate that there is no lock present.
With GTX670 PE/680 Lightning I'd still stay at 2.2.3

Great news upcoming. On Guru3D Alexey Nicolaychuk aka Unwinder (creates Afterburner) announced a full voltage unlock for Lightning GTX680s, GTX600 Power Editions and Hawks with the new Afterburner beta version (3.0.0 Beta 8) around the corner as MSI allowed that despite Nvidia's restrictions (thanks anDrasch for the hint):

Some more news on develepment. Pleasant surprize for N680GTX Lightning owners: I don't know how MSI solved this with NV, but in the latest database voltage control is fully unlocked again on MSI GTX6x0 Lightning, PE and Hawk series cards like it was in v2.2.3 prior to NV restriction.

Version update (BETA!):
Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 8 is out. Click >>here<< for download.

This is the beta version announced in my prior post. Besides Titan support MSI finally managed to bypass Nvidia's restrictions for the GTX600 series. Voltage control is now fully unlocked again on MSI GTX6x0 Lightning, PE and Hawk.

Release info is rather slim and not including that info provided by Unwinder before release:

Hi guys, the Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 8 is ready for you to download. this version supports the control of NVIDIA and AMD graphics card, if you get the card, you may try to play it.

 Change note:
 • The OSD server is no longer an explicit part of Afterburner, now it is optional and separately installable component similar to Kombuster.
 Included in archive with Afterburner.
 Please don't forget to install OSD server(RTSSSetup500.exe)

 • Added new server distributive with NVIDIA FCAT overlay support.
 • Added some Graphics card support.

Please note: This is a beta and no official release = no technical support.

Latest Version update (BETA!):
Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 10 is out. Click >>here<< for download.

This is a new beta version. Voltage control seems seems not to be fully unlocked on MSI GTX6x0 Lightning, PE and Hawk and OSD voltage monitoring is dysfunctional again (only target voltage displayed). Users of the cards mentioned before should stay with Beta 9 until it expires and switch back to 2.2.3 afterwards. Main focus of Beta 10 is supporting latest vgas (GTX7x0 and Radeon 7990)

Release info is impressive:

Improved hardware monitoring module architecture with better extendibility
- Added temperature limit, power limit, voltage limit and maximum overvoltage limit graphs to hardware monitoring module for release 320 and newer NVIDIA driver. The graphs help you to understand the reasons of realtime performance limitations (e.g. reaching power target) on GPU Boost compatible graphics cards
- Added framebuffer, video engine and bus controller usage graphs for NVIDIA graphics cards to hardware monitoring module
- Added generic NVAPI videomemory usage monitoring for NVIDIA graphics cards unattached to Windows desktop (e.g. dedicated PhysX accelerators)
- Updated power reporting for release 320 and newer NVIDIA drivers. Now MSI Afterburner reports normalized total power according to NVIDIA recommendations
- Added core voltage control for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 7x0 series graphics cards
- Added core voltage control for reference design AMD RADEON 7990 graphics cards with VT1556 voltage regulators
- Build number is now displayed in “i” window and in application tray icon tooltip
- Localizable installer files for third party translators are now included in distributive in .\SDK\Localization\Installer folder
- Now RivaTuner Statistics Server installer is being started by MSI Afterburner installer to make installation process easier for beginners. The server distributive is being copied to .\Redist\RTSSSetup.exe during MSI Afterburner installation, so you may always install it later if necessary
- RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to version 5.1.2

Please note: This is a beta and no official release = no technical support.

(SE) Version update (BETA!):

Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 14 is out. Click >>here<< for download.

This is a new beta version.

Release info:

Change note:

- Add MSI new card supported
- Added NCP4206 voltage regulators support to provide compatibility with future custom design MSI graphics cards
- Improved voltage control layer architecture provides better compatibility with automatic voltage control on NCP4206 voltage
regulators
- RivaTuner Statistics Server updated to version 5.3.0 with the following improvements:
- Added external encoding plugin modules support. Plugin modules architecture provides an easy way to implement different hardware accelerated video encoders in RivaTuner Statistics Server.
- Added benchmark mode for external encoding plugin modules. Benchmark mode allows you to verify if hardware encoder is configured and working properly as well as estimate expected hardware encoding performance.
- Added external QSV.DLL encoding plugin. The plugin provides you high-performance hardware accelerated H.264 encoding on Intel QuickSync Video capable platforms. Intel QuickSync H.264 encoder is able to compress 1080p video at 60 FPS with no major CPU performance hit. Hardware accelerated Intel QuickSync H.264 encoder was introduced special to compete with NVIDIA’s ShadowPlay hardware accelerated H.264 encoder. Free hardware accelerated H.264 video capture and encoding is no longer an exclusive selling point of NVIDIA Kepler GPU family, now the same functionality is available on much wider range of hardware platforms on both AMD and NVIDIA GPU based graphics cards absolutely for free!
- Tweaked encoder queue depth. The queue depth is no longer hardcoded to 32 frames, now it is equal to recording framerate
- Decreased server startup time on OS versions with no any service pack version installed
- Improved function offsets cache validation algorithm in hooking system
- Added proxy Direct3D library protection system. Now RivaTuner Statistics Server forcibly disables application hooking and blocks OSD, screen capture and video recording functionality if application is running via the proxy Direct3D runtime library (various game mods based on hacked D3D DLLs). Compatibility with most of such applications can still be improved by enabling custom Direct3D runtime libraries support in the application profile


For GTX680/770 Lightning users a SE version is available as well. To utilize those cards special features you must install the SE version: Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 14 SE Lightning edition. Click >>here<< for download.

Please note: These are beta and no official releases = no technical support.

Version update (BETA!):

Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 15 is out. Click >>here<< for download.

This is a new beta version.

Release info:

Change note:

• Added CPU temperature monitoring (Intel Core 2 and newer Intel CPUs only), CPU usage, RAM usage and pagefile usage graphs to hardware monitoring module
• Added CPU info to “i” window
• Now full list of currently active 3D processes is being displayed in On-Screen Display server info section in “i” window instead of one active 3D process before
• Fixed GUI issue causing vertical slider to be rendered improperly in advanced application properties window under certain conditions
• On-Screen Display text length limit has been extended from 256 bytes to 4 kilobytes
• Framerate slider limit in “Videocapture” tab has been extended from 100 FPS to 120 FPS
• Now flashing camera icon is being displayed in the top left corner of monitoring window when video is being captured
• Improved DirectInput hotkey handler minimizes the risk of losing hotkey functionality until application restart under certain conditions
• Added Turkish localization

RivaTuner Statistics Server 5.3.2:

• Improved encoding plugins architecture:
o Now the plugins can be optionally loaded either in host 3D application address space or in dedicated encoder server application address space. Dedicated encoder server usage reduces the peak encoding performance a bit, however it may give you the following advantages in conjunction with Intel QuickSync H.264 encoder plugin:
- Minimization of different Direct3D synchronization/multithreading related issues. Host application 3D engine NVIDIA/AMD Direct3D device and encoder Intel Direct3D device are now isolated from each other and run in different address spaces and have much less chances to affect each other. Multithreaded optimizations no longer being forcibly disabled when capturing videos in Direct3D9 applications via Intel QuickSync H.264 plugin working in Direct3D9 mode with dedicated encoder server
- Now it is possible to use hardware accelerated Intel QuickSync H.264 encoder plugin to capture video from the games using modified Direct3D runtime libraries
- Now it is possible to use software emulation mode for Intel QuickSync H.264 encoder without installing Intel Media SDK. Intel software emulation libraries are distributed with encoder server
o Now the plugins can optionally provide extended error reporting info
• Improved Intel QuickSync H.264 encoder plugin:
o Added dedicated encoder server support
o Added extended error reporting support
o Recompiled under Intel Media SDK 2013 R2
• Fixed previously available compatibility mode with modified Direct3D runtime libraries broken due to introducing alternate experimental compatibility mode with modified Direct3D libraries in the previous version
• Fixed incorrect compression ratio value displayed in OSD when capturing video in high resolutions (4 MB and higher framebuffer size)
• Added high performance desktop video capture for Windows 8 and newer OS via DXGI 1.2 desktop duplication API
• Audio track description is no longer being written to MKV file if audio track is empty, e.g. during silent desktop recording session
• Various capture performance related tweaks:
o Tuned queued screen capture implementation
o Tuned pipeline flushing implementation
o Tuned dynamic pipeline flushing control
• Improved frames timestamping accuracy
• On-Screen Display text length limit has been extended from 256 bytes to 4 kilobytes per application slot. Third party developers using RTSS OSD support in their applications should refer to updated sample code in SDK
• Added On-Screen Display profile for Rayman Legends
• Updated profiles list

Version update (BETA!):

Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 16 is out. Click >>here<< for download.

This is a new beta version.

Release info:

Change note:
 • Added prerecording support to video capture engine. Two different prerecording modes are available to the client applications:
 o Prerecord to a temporary file. This mode suits best for prerecording long videos (e.g. 10 minutes or more of H.264 video)
 or for prerecording videos with low compression ratio (e.g. lossless Lagarith video)
 o Prerecord to RAM. This mode suits best for prerecording short videos (e.g. a couple minutes of H.264 video) and it
 provides a bit better performance than prerecord to file. Also, unlike prerecord to file, prerecord to RAM minimizes
 writes so it can increase the lifetime of SSD if you plan to use the prerecording frequently
 • Improved muxer architecture with better extendibility makes it much easier to add new video containers support in future versions
 • Fixed incorrect minutes being shown in video capture timer in On-Screen Display for videos longer than 1 hour
 • Updated profiles list

No SE version yet!

Afterburner 3.0.0 Beta 17 is out. Click >>here<< for download.

This is a new beta version.

Release info:

Change note:
 Now supported MSI R270X HAWK and AMD Hawaii family voltage control.

(!)
Guys, I've just noticed that in beta 17 database we unlocked voltage control for reference VGA BIOS only. So those who flash third party BIOS are out of luck. We'll remove reference BIOS restriction shortly and upload updated new version.
 In meanwhile, while revised beta 17 is not uploaded experienced users may unlock voltage control in current beta 17 by adding the following lines to hardware profile file (.\Profiles\VEN_1002.......cfg):

 [Settings]
 VDDC_IR3567B_Detection = 30h
 VDDC_IR3567B_Output = 0
 VDDCI_IR3567B_Detection = 30h
 VDDCI_IR3567B_Output = 1
