I'm having an issue which seems (when googling for it) to be quite common but with as of yet no solution.
When I overclock my GPU's with MSI Afterburner everything is fine until I reboot, the screen will be just black. It requires me to go into safe-boot, remove the drivers for my display adapters (gpu's) and from that point on I can normal boot again.
What seems to be happening is that the Crimson Global Overdrive settings are changed into the same as MSI Afterburner's settings. The issue with this however, is that Crimson won't overclock the voltage too, probably causing the drivers to crash.
This could potentially be solved in 2 ways:
1. Just fix the crimson software, I'm sure there must be some way for this since Catalyst never had any issues with this.
2. Change the crimson configuration into read-only, prevent it from beeing written to.
The issue with #2 is that, as of yet, I have been unable to locate where these are stored / written to.
Any ideas / solutions would be greatly appreciated!

This looks to be an issue with a third party application, as I'm guessing the issue does not happen when using just Overdrive. I would recommend waiting until Windows has loaded before applying any overclocking values via a third party application. I believe MSI AB has profiles you can use to store values and have these automatically apply when a 3D application kicks in.
Yes but the issue is that AMD overdrive copies the settings from
Afterburner and tries to apply these on-boot causing the failure because
Overdrive has no voltage overclock feature.
Thus my question, where does Overdrive save its configuration file so I can
turn it read only?

We don't support overvoltage that's why it's not enabled in overdrive, so this is unlikely to be an issue we would dedicate engineering resources to.
nonetheless it's the cause of the black screen and could be prevented by
making the configuration file read-only.
(also whats the use of a gpu overclock feature without voltage overclocking
anyway? even if I do +1% in overdrive it crashes)
So where can I find the location of the Overdrive configuration file?
