I tried flashing all of these bios http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=185918

The only one that worked for my Asus was the stock Sapphire bios one and then I modded that bios using TechPowerUp Radeon Bios Editor. It worked but my card was only stable @ 950/1050 1.29v

P.S. you might have to unlock your card prior to attempting to flash any of these, I did. thumb.gif

I used RBE as well to up the memory voltage. I can get all three cards to run 1000/1300 by themselves but I hit a max of 870/1250 with them crossfired.

I will have to test again once I get a molex extension to plug into the PCIE bit on my motherboard.

what voltage for 1000/1300 on the 5970? is the voltage the same for the 5870's?

1.35v/1.25v for the 5970
1.3v/1.25 for the 5870

Don't try it unless you have a waterblock for the VRAM and VRM's.

Gets toasty real quick.

That's really weird that you can't get the same oc when crossfired. Are they all the same brand?
