MSI Afterburner APP
By Micro-Star International Co., Ltd.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This iOS overclocking utility “Afterburner APP” was co-developed by MSI and well-known software programmer Nick Connors. This new Afterburner utility allows the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices to adjust or monitor MSI Afterburner settings on PC over a Wi-Fi connection. In addition to monitoring the temperature, voltage and fan speed, the utility can also be used for overclocking and overvoltaging!
Quick installation guide:
Before you want to test MSI Afterburner APP on iOS, you will need:
1. A windows xp sp3 (with .NET 2)/vista/7 system with a discrete graphics card and is able to connect to internet/intranet.
2. An iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad with wifi function. (the O/S should be higher v3.2)
3. The system and iOS device can connect to each other over internet or intranet.
“RemoteServer” is a utility which should be placed in the host system. Just make sure all files are under in the same folder.
Make sure the system has installed the afterburner 2.1.0 or above version, and it has to be started so RemoteServer can read the H/W status through it.
How to work - Step by step:
1. Put the folder for RemoteServer on desktop for easy access
2. Run Afterburner (2.1.0 or above version)
3. Run "MSIAfterburnerRemoteServer.exe" to open up the RemoteServer
4. Verify that the remoteServer is running in background
5. Run Afterburner APP on iOS device
6. Enter the system IP (you can find ip over RemoteServer) into the IP settings of Afterburner APP to make a connection of Afterburner APP and Remote Server.
7. If the monitoring and OC funtions work properly, now it's time to enjoy it!
BTW, each clock/voltage/fan adjustment over afterburner app, you will have to press "apply"!

What's New in Version 1.0.1
Support for iOS 5
Doesn't seem to work
Was pretty excited to see this app hit the App Store, but not anymore...
The RemoteServer doesn't work for me no matter what. It would often error out or crash. Upon opening it, it would immediately say the server won't start due to port 80 being used by something else. Changing the port number and restarting the server results in a crash or something else that shouldn't happen.
It would be best if the RemoteServer would be built-in to Afterburner, and if better settings would be made for Afterburner, the Afterburner iOS app, and the RemoteServer.
You're better off finding a free app that adds a display to your PC, and just drag Afterburner to the new display to monitor everything on your iOS device.
Works... For the most part...
I have the remote server started and the Afterburner app started on my PC.
I can connect my iPhone 4 to the remote app fine and i can tap'Monitor' and see everthing like the temp update once per second, etc...
BUT when I tap 'overclock' on the app on my iPhone the app just blinks once and crashes to my Home Screen! Maybe the recent iOS updates have made the MSi app incompatible...
It's a shame too because I was excited to use this.
PLEASE UPDATE THIS APP OR TELL ME WHAT IM DOING WRONG!
Everything worked just fine an dandy for me, using Win7. after i completely disabled my firewall that is. no matter what i tried to allow it in the firewall it still wouldnt work till i took it all the way down.
