Will I be able to flash the BIOS on HIS 5850 w/ iCoolerV

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As noted above, I would like to flash the bios on my HIS 5850, the exact model being this one.

Several of the reviews mentioned being able to flash the BIOS to unlock the voltage and other things which were locked down. However, being a non-reference card (or is it?) I'm not sure whether this is in fact the case. One of the comments mentioned that they had done it with the MSI bios successfully, but again, I'm a bit apprehensive since it's technically non-reference.

If it can be flashed, should I go with the MSI BIOS or the ASUS one?

From the comments...

It is capable of ..... or even flashing the GPU Bios (but at your own risk, of course)

Don't try flashing the bios to achieve anything higher, it will get bricked since its again not a reference card

I should also note it has the blue PCB.
