That's not what you said, which was single cards use ULPS.

Single cards do go into ULPS.

Zero Core is different, cuz it switches all the cards off and uses a special core that stays awake solely to watch for activity at which point it wakes the card or cards.

Yes I meant I must have mixed them up.

I flashed my XFX Core a couple days ago.

Grab the bios here. (Post 2008)

Install ATI Winflash to your C:\ drive and remember the path. Copy the Asus bios into the same folder. Might help to rename it to something like asus.bin

Open up a Command prompt as Admin, navigate to the folder where ATI Winflash is located (easiest to just install it to c:\ root), and type the following command:

atiwinflash -unlockrom 0

atiwinflash -f -p 0 bios.bin (bios.bin being the asus bios you first downloaded)

This should flash your card correctly. I spent a couple hours trying the different methods mentioned in this thread and finally remembered the method I used to flash my 6950. Once it is flashed, uninstall your drivers, reboot, and reinstall the drivers.

I also highly recommend that you use the Asus GPU Tweak found in this 7970 pack linked earlier.

The Asus bios is great. Helped vdroop a bit and so far I'm stable at 1390/1600@1.35V (1.28V actual) running through the Metro 2033 benchmark.

Anyone with an MSI 7970 OC starting at 1010Mhz core clock?

Curious if they over clock any better? I realize it being reference that it's just a factory OC and we can OC them just as easily. Was curious to know if they were binned? I know they would have been tested for that OC to guarantee the OC under warranty. Wondering if they are having an easier time getting to 1300Mhz and what stock voltage was?

I highly doubt they're binned.... Every 7970 produced can do 1000-1010 that's why the OC editions are only at that frequency.
Higher binned SKU's normally surface 2-3 months after launch.

MSIAlex has stated in the past that MSI do not bin chips.

Welp guys, I have the 2nd 7970 installed.

I'm having issues right now. Heaven 2.5 crashes and I'll even BSOD once in a while. ULPS is disabled and I reinstalled Catalyst and flashed both cards to the same bios. The BSOD has stopped, but Heaven and 3DMark11 both won't complete. They keep locking up or quit responding.

Both cards are not overclocked and overclocking makes not respond or crashes the benchmark faster.

What gives?

EDIT: I also tested both cards independently in which they were fine and completed the tests.

EDIT2: I have not touched any CAPS yet, what is everyone recommending?
