anybody with xfx 6870 dualfan edition flashed the 6870 black edition vbios?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello fellow tweakers,
i builded a comp for myself and i thought i orderd a xfx hd 6870 black edition but instead i got a 6870 dual fan.
so i thought if i would flash the vbios of a black edition on it it would work as one as it are basicly the same cards(same chip and cooling and stuff like that)
so i got my vbios from this link: http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/87120/XFX.HD6870.1024.101020.html
i googled up some ways on how to flash it and i flashed it.
if i look in catalist control centrum i see i get the new clockspeeds but when i just tried to play mw2 to see if i get more fps i saw to my amazmend i have lower fps then before:-o
how is it possible i get lower fps with a higher gpu clock and higher memory clock.
thanks for any tips.
best regards

editited: anybody who has done that also got better fps?
i flashed the newer vbios on it but i dont see a difference in fps although gpu and coreclock are higher.
i tried reinstalling the drivers without avail so i am thinking of reinstalling my system but i rather not do it as it takes time:p
therefore if some one has done this with a good experience please tell me what you have done to get it to work properly:p

Have you checked the temps? Is your system not getting good airflow? Is your PSU cheapy? These are some variables that could be weighed in.

Try uninstalling the drivers and re-installing them again as well.

thanks for youre rep mate
i think my psu is good enough
i have a xfx 650 w xxx edition
its in my sig as all specs are there what is in my comp
i havent tried different drivers as it saw everything after two restarts so i thought it would be good
played a little more of mw2 and sometimes i saw better fps but verry rarely:(
will reinstal the driver and ccc to see if it helps
as for the temps it gets to 70 degrees after 2 hours gaming so i think that is good or can that be improved?
i have 4 12' coolers in my case wich i think are good as my cpu gets to 55 after 2 hours gaming wich isnt that high imo


edit: would it be better to download the 11.7 from xfx there site or from the ati.amd site?
the reason i ask is maybe xfx puts special tweaks in it for there cards?

hmmm verry strange,
i downloaded the screndriver and ccc installer and choose there to de-instal it.
i choose advanced mode and selected everything including screen driver.
i restarted my comp and it still showed the same resolution.
when i look under screen properties it sill knows i have a radeon 6000 serie videocard in it so i tried it again with the installer but i get the message it cant find anything related so i cant choose to uninstal it
how can my system still know i have a radeon 6000 serie card but there arent any drivers installed if i may believe the ccc installer
