Does a 1.125v 5870 reference bios exist?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Because I've been through TPU with RBE and they all seem to have either a 1.165v or 1.175v vid.. I know for a fact that there are 1.125v 5870's around, although the bios itself seems impossible to find. I guess I could potentially edit my current bios in RBE, but I don't really want to screw anything up.

My card has been completely stable at 900/1200 1.165 for the past few months, and CCC auto tune thinks 1.165v is enough for 890/1290, but I rather save some juice and run the thing at 850/1200 1.125v lol

I have one. It's a Lightning II Bios 900/1200 @ 1.129v. Although, even though that is what my VID is doesn't mean that's what yours will preset to. It's a hardware request, not a predetermined bios function.

Lightning II isn't reference, but if it's a hardware request, I guess that's the reason they're either all 1.165 or 1.175 lol

Alright, all I need to know then.

You can still flash a reference card with the lightning II bios no problems at all. That is going to be your best chance, but has a possibility of changing once reference clocks are exceeded. Could be why you are noticing differences in VID's in your selected bioses.
