CCC Catalyst Control Centre, If your MSI's BIOS is netting you 1250 mhz then no there is definitely no need to update to the ASUS BIOS.
Did your card come unlocked?

I wasn't under the impression that there was any unlocking to be done. I am using MSI Afterburner's most recent beta with the over-vault limit in the config file increased.

My Furmark from the previous AMD drivers, most recent drivers crashed the system. -.- BF3 at 60-85FPS on Ultra.

Use this one, this will flash your BIOS for you. Remember to set the BIOS switch on your card to "1" biggrin.gif

It'll do everything for you. Just run it
That said. Here's my score overclocking to 1200/1600 with 1.25v (I haven't played with the volts much yet) Max temps were right around 70c with a peak of 72c
338

1. You will need to make a bootable USB or CD.. (preferably USB)
Use these tools to format the USB.
TOOLS.zip 708k .zip file
338
2. After you have formatted, download and rename the following BIOS to AsusOC.bin, then throw it onto the USB.
Asus.HD7970.3072.111220.zip 41k .zip file
And ATIflash.exe also to be on the USB.
atiflash.zip 580k .zip file
3. Once the USB has been made bootable and both Atiflash and the ASUS OC bios are both on the USB, set your motherboards bios to boot from the USB.
4. After you have successfully booted through the USB, you will be taken to a DOS prompt. From there you will type the following:
For Primary (1st) GPU
Code:
atiflash.exe -fs -p 0 Asusoc.bin
For Slave (2nd) GPU
Code:
atiflash.exe -fs -p 1 Asusoc.bin
If the adapters arent "found", use this line to correctly identify the adapter numbers.
Code:
atiflash.exe -i
After successful flashing, shutdown the system and remove the USB. Boot into windows normally.

I dumped mine using GPU-Z, not sure how to go about restoring if needed.

As far as I know, yes. Download GPU-Z and then find the "BIOS Version" then click on the green arrow next to the number (at the same line as BIOS Version) then click "Save to File" and name it "Backup 7970BIOS.bin" or something. Although you do have the BIOS switch that you can switch back to "2" which is a kind of backup BIOS incase you do a bad flash to the card.

So even though MSI AB says 1.29v after I press apply, my cards are only getting, x.xv ?

Yeah exactly, you will need the ASUS OC BIOS or the ATI modded BIOS.

GPU-z is best to backup the BIOS. To restore, just go about the manual method in the post a little above.
