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 email@example.comV (1.28V actual) running through the Metro 2033 benchmark.
Hi, thanks for the instructions. I thought this was going to do it as i had never done the 'atiwinflash -unlockrom 0' . Unfortunately though this still did not work
I have no idea what is going on here.
