Cool, thanks!!! I will remove it this weekend to see if it's there, so it's on the side that connects to the motherboard from what i see ?

What a strange and nonsense place to put it, really.

It should be of easier access.

BTW lucky you who have an unused 7970

Unfortunately bad news...I wrote them, they replied almost immediately, here is their reply:

Dear Ivan
I am sorry that we don't provide manual for all our cards products.
Besides, this model should not have dual bios.
To overclock, you should use the amd offical software (old version: Amd Catalyst Control Center, New version: Radeon Software Crimson Edition)
If both of them can't unlock the voltage, it means your model is not provided such function.

Strange they do not know for sure about the bios (i provided them the serial number and registered the product...

I asked for clarification, in the crimson drivers i could find the overclock tab, but the voltage was not there, at least i did not see it, and looked everywhere i think..is it really hidden in Crimson drivers window or is it close to GPU and memory clock wheels ?

Why do you have to remove it? you can access/see it even if card is installed. easy access except for some with waterblocks on them and a bridge for crossfire.

It is the most logical place for it. BTW, if your card has one, make sure to turn off system first before switching.

Also, i recommend using Trixx or Afterburner for voltage adjustments (if yours has that feature) and/or oc'ing.

I don't even let CCC be part of the startup programs.

EDIT: the switch is really tiny. you may need a magnifying glass.biggrin.gif

Thanks, yeah, maybe i can reach it without removing it, no waterblock and no crossifre, just maybe some cables bothering...

I am using MSI afterburner indeed, tried trixx but i find MSI it much better since it has also the on screen data (i.e Temps, fan , GPU load etc, while you play)

Just said about crimson because the XFX guy reccomended it but I will stick with MSI i guess.

Note. Crimson will follow the oc settings of either Trixx or AB. I have to go to CCC or Crimson and reset the gpu back to default. Trixx or AB oc should stay. This is, if you accepted Overdrive. The reset default button or whatever you call it is small and you might miss it.

oohhhhhh this pictures clarifies better, from the previous one i thought the switch was on the other side ...sorry, i mistook that side with the one that connects to the motherboard. Will check better this weekend.

I am using AB without problems (except the voltage lock) so i do not think i have to do anything with crimson, right ?

Yes, if there are no issues, then no need to check Crimson.

Try this modded trixx. Its old as dirt, but it was a very easy way to get past the semi-lock on my ASUS card. I couldn't adjust voltage on my ASUS DC2 from afterburner at all, but this worked. Voltage up to 1.3 is allowed, but not suggested on air.

ok so, here is the picture, i don't see any switch in the same location you posted, nor in any other visible location actually...i guess i don't have dual bios frown.gif




In the old Trixx you just sent me, I see the VDDC and i can indeed change it.

But it's on 1.175 and i can only decrease it, not increase it. In GPU-Z, while playing, the max voltage is indeed 1.175 so i guess it's still locked right at the maximum stock value, right ?
