Can I use a different BIOS for my XFX 7950 DD? becuase I'm wondering that if I changed the BIOS, I could probably go higher than 1.13V

Last time I tried to flash my 7950 with this BIOS http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/119533/Asus.HD7950.3072.120116.html

But it killed my 7950

Maaan, don't EVER use another manufacturer bioses with your hardware, it's invoking the Lords of the Bricks!! Flashing a Bios isn't like it used to be in the past, a russian roulette, but you must know that flashing today can still arise problems even when the bios comes from the same manufacturer/model.

Stop scaring ppl for no reason. That's what the darn dual bios switch is for.

Sadly, the XFX 7950 DD doesn't have a dual BIOS switch, my last 7950 got bricked by flashing a ASUS BIOS onto the card, I have a feeling that ASUS bios was from a card without the new 8+6 pin by looking at the date it was uploaded

That's your fault with no bios switch though, not to pour salt on your wound. W/o a switch you are choosing to take on the risk.

I have a heatsink on the VRM's, should i put some mx-4 to the top of the VRM's? Is it safe or should I use thermal pads? VRM1 peaking @ 106C while I was playing BF3 at 1100/1405 @ 1,093mV (1.031) stock... 54% fan speed

Stop trying to be smart and not qualifying. Also, I would thank if you stopped spilling that childish arrogance over your answers, particularly aimed at me but in general also. If you want to take an egotrip, let's do it by PM.

What are you going on about? There's a dual bios switch for a reason. If you're card doesn't have one, that's a pretty damn obvious tip that it's not a reference card so in Atomfix's case, he took the risk.

You on the other hand are talking gibberish, just scaring ppl in general. There's a dual bios for a reason lmao.
