Phantom Gaming Tweak

A fast and easy tool that provides users with an abundant collection of subtle settings for professional tweaking such as FAN speed, core clocks, memory frequency and so on. Users may also choose the most optimized mode based on their needs, like OC mode, Silent mode or default mode. Phantom Gaming Tweak delivers more than enough voltage configuration options for anyone who wish to pursuit extremes.

When you first start the Phantom Gaming Tweak software, you land on a summary page that shows some quick status information about the card including core and memory clock speeds, temperature and fan speeds, and memory usage. AMD’s drivers' reserve some system memory for use by the card, so we see about 13.5GB total here between shared system memory and the onboard 8GB

The preferences tab only has a couple of options, including starting up with windows.

The ‘Default’ profile in the OC Tweaker tab has a base clock speed of 1380 MHz.

The ‘Silent Mode’ profile sits at 1325 MHz.

And finally, the ‘OC Mode’ jumps to 1435 MHz.  Memory also jumps very slightly.
