This may be well-known, but I've been trying to get more voltage since I got this card on 1/10.
That asus overclock bios and gputweak will do it. Notice the actual voltage in gpuz. Before I was stuck at setting at 1.3v so I could only get about 1.23v load. Setting to 1.4 gets me all the way to 1.31v load. Before I could not get past 1190 stable and now I can set to 1318mv for a stable 1200mhz.
ASIC quality is 55.8% fwiw, so my stock vid is 1.175V(1.12v load). This bios is obviously allowing my to go past +.125 or whatever the hardware OCP limit was thought to be. It allows for ~+200mv. Anyone with a decent clocking chip(mine is really on the bad end of the spectrum) on water should get some nice results with this.

lol no thanks! Don't want more volts that bad. I post the link in my previous post mentioning the unlocked bios. Only skimmed it and never got it to flash myself, so fact or fiction?

I can't believe that till I see it in hw64. Is this an instance of reading intended voltage and mistaking it for real voltage?

No, looks like set to 1.39 and pulling 1.31. Meh I don't know. I will try it out on the new card see if I have any joy.

Lemme check the kingpincooling thread, haven't read it in weeks. I hope you is right. thumb.gif

After some more thought, I don't think its necessarily Powerplay, but your cards stability. The cards that have trouble are having issues switching between the different clock and voltage modes. The BIG question or glaring issue is that if you used AB right, the card would be in a low power idle clock before sleep anyways! My main card is at 500/150@.95v due to the eyefinity monitors, so switching between that and a lower state is not a clocking issue.
How do you have AB setup with your 2D profile? What driver are you on? I know that 12.2/12.3 even with the missing files, has issues releasing the clocks to AB. In other words it won't let the clocks drop all the way down. I don't know if its the driver or AB, cuz AB isn't perfect and we def know the Catalyst team is on glue sometimes If you check and see that your memory won't drop... it's indicative of an issue of driver control over clocks. XCL bypasses this by using Overdrive to switch clocks, it doesn't fix the problem right?

I am not at home, so I cannot effectively look up all the info at the moment. Driver is 12.2 from the 7th---http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/pages/radeon_win7-64.aspx . What you say makes sense in regard to why xcl works for stopping the sleep crashes, though, if this truly is the case with the clocks.

Well, it fixes the symptom of the problem--at least for me. I haven't had a crash since. But does it fix the problem, technically no, it is rather just a way around it until it is _truly_ fixed. Whether the problem actually exists in the driver or AB, of that I am not certain.

Not fiction guys, the screens speak for themselves. Flash the bios, install gputweak, and see for yourself.

55% asic is 1.185v + .125=1.31. Can you get higher voltage Parton cuz it looks like you can't if you put in 1.39v and it comes out 1.31v?

I think the point is, if it was not unlocked, max volts he can put in is 1.3v, regardless os asic. mmmm interesting. That bios will not work on my HIS unfortunately to test myself. frown.gif
