I flashed my cards using the Asus BIOS, my clocks still limited to 1125. Do I need to do a driver reinstall?

Are they running 2500k with two 7970's in bf3 64 player? Do they have proof of 99% gpu usage? I would love to keep this setup until Ivy Bridge but hell, if its' a bottleneck then it's a bottleneck.

It's true. Regardless of ASIC VID, it's locked @+125mV. This proves that higher quality ASICs will not overvoltage higher and better than the lowest ASIC VID. Overclockability is unique to each chip regardless of ASIC quality.

 

Flash it with ASUS BIOS will not by-pass the +125mV OVP (Over Voltage Protection).

 How did you flash? Using Atiflash from DOS or using Asus Tweak from Windows?

 

Try this BIOS;

This random fps drop thing is killing me. FPS drops down by 20-30 fps for half a second every four second. It's unplayable! And there is no clear sign to why this is happening. Come on, please tell me there is someone who knows what i'll have to do blushsmiley.gif

I used the DOS flash posted in the OP; Asus.HD7970.3072.111220

Do I need to use the Asus Tweak software exclusively?

All games, even benchmarks like 3DMark 11 and Ungine Heaven gives me this strange fps-drop ..

Awh, shucks... Hopefully they will find a way to overide the OVP sometime in the future. like they did on the 580/570 smile.gif


One an other side of things, does any1 think changing the Thermal grease on my two cards will result in lower overall temperatures? I got some IC Diamond 7carat lying around
