post #2711 of 38701
I have been trying to flash my XFX 7970 Core Edition with the Asus bios. I have tried Atiflash which basically says " adapter not found" and Atiwinflash says No valid adapter found.
Any suggestions?

Did you install the driver? That identifies it to the system as to what it is. If that is missing, the error message makes sense, if it is installed, then no idea, motherboard issue.

Atiflash is flashing from DOS unrelated to drivers. Flip BIOS switch to #1. Use the -fs command.

 

If that doesn't work, this is something new. Flash protected and needs hard mod for XFX Core Edition? eek.gif

Try the automatic one I posted some pages back. It's in the OP as well.

Outcast, thanks for that graph!

I just installed my 2600k today. Yes, I literally went ahead and bought a 2600k after I saw that screenshot, and from people who has 2600k, like Demin who helped. I had $1200 in GPUs but my 2500k was holding it back in BF3 since my GPU usages were floating around 75-90%, never utilizing its full potential.

Anyways, installed my 2600k today, OC'd it to 4.5ghz just to test it out at 2500k speeds. In the same Strike at Karkand map, where my 2500k would struggle it seems since both my GPUs would fluctuate between 75-90%, the 2600k with HT on pegs my GPUs at 98-99% 99% of the time, just like the AB screenshot Outcast posted. I am happy now. I didn't even try to push my 2600k further. Granted, even with the 2500k and my GPUs at 75-90%, I was still able to get 60+fps most of the time, but I'm willing to spend $100 to ease my mind knowing that my CPU isn't severely bottlenecking my $1200 video cards.

Thank you Outcast for spending my money, now I just need to sell my 2500k.

About to do some overclocking, what is the option that i disable that lets card 2 go to sleep when not in use? I am under the impression this causes crashes for OCing ?

ULPS. Search the registry for all Ulps entries and set it to 0.

Also i notice when i ran Heaven i starting hearing a buzzing sound from one of the cards? Is this normal? First time i have ever heard something like this from a card. I am guessing it will happen when i run other demanding programs ?

Just to confirm, if i'm not messing with voltages and overclocking on stock volts only, ULPS can remain enabled without causing problems?
