You're absolutely right. After all, you taught me all I know! biggrin.gif

I hit the power limit at 1530, but without the extra voltage I gray screened at 1505 so it was a little bit of a gain, someday I'll be ballsy enough to flash a custom bios lol
post #3664 of 4306
It's really not that big a deal to do. And @Klue22 would fix you up right. And I could even do it.
post #3665 of 4306
dont you do it in windows tho? I only have linux on this machine, and I am still learning the basics lol! dont really want to void the warranty either, its still a pretty new card
post #3666 of 4306
Yes, you do have to mod and flash in Windows, unfortunately. I laboriously load Win7 on my rigs just for that purpose. Takes a few hours. You just about have to let it do important updates. Without some of those you're dead in the water. Drivers won't even run.

Warrenties are still valid as long as you can reflash back to stock BIOS. You can't really add too much voltage to the cards as long as you keep the temps in check.

Also flashing is pretty easy. Don't even have to boot DOS, just run a few commands from command prompt.

Is there a simple way to mod the BIOS in Linux? I've searched but not found anything.

On another note I've got Classy#1 folding at 1584. Want to go a few days to verify stability. It's been running at 1570 for a few weeks now.

I used the above command to go to 308 watts from 280 (10% power target increase) added 50Mv and 171 clock offset... Running smooth as butter at 1550 now biggrin.gif
