I have just installed a Gigabyte HD7950 Windforce Graphics Card in my system.
It has the FX0 Bios, Bios Version: 015.029.000.003, Release Date: Jan 31 2012
My ASIC Quality is a lowly 57.4
Now, am i correct in thinking that i can flash the bios with F43 to get the Standard 900 Core & 1250 Mem speeds & lower voltages ??
I ask this as i am not interested in overclocking, i just want my card to run a bit cooler, thats all.
Also, has anyone noticed that when in dos mode (when you install windows) the core is at 1000 & the voltage is at 1.25, just as if you were playing a 3d game ?, this has caused my card to display lines & coloured blocks on my monitor, also the fans seem to be running very slowly when this happens, have a look at the ATi Power Play settings below:
ATI PowerPlay (BIOS)
State #1 GPU: 1000 MHz, Memory: 1250 MHz (Boot) <---- This is what i mean.
State #2 GPU: 1000 MHz, Memory: 1250 MHz
State #3 GPU: 900 MHz, Memory: 1250 MHz (UVD)
State #4 GPU: 300 MHz, Memory: 150 MHz
Is there any way to change the settings of state #1 to State #4 in the bios ??
If the above could be done, then i dont see much chance of the card overheating whilst in dos mode thus stopping the screen artifacts & over heating
Anyway, thankyou in advance for all replys.
