You have to read carefully mate, you'll need to boot into DOS mode and use atiflash.

For you 7850 guys, THIS method does work.

It will allow you to over-volt to 1.3v (instead of 1.225v), but I would honestly recommend NOT doing this unless you have very good air cooling and some way to cool down the VRMs. I have an H70 on the chip, with x2 120mm fans blowing down on the ram modules (with heat-sinks) and the VRMs, yet the VRMs still get pretty toasty @ 1.3v.

Also, this was a Sapphire 7850 2GB Non GHZ edition.

And I say this method does NOT work. Also using a Sapphire 7850, I've tried flashing numerous BIOS images to the card and all I ever got for my effort was a nice black screen at reboot followed by a refresher course in changing the system BIOS to boot with on-die GPU so I could then flash the damn thing back to the stock image. Fun.

That's a BIOS flash for you. Of course there is always the risk of bricking or having to re-flash it back.

How are you trying to flash it, and which BIOS are you using? And you do have the 2GB version right?

I deleted and reinstaled Steam, both games and that's when shogun II began working but not Dirt 3... It 1st was trying to tell me the key wasn't correct but that hasn't changed since october 2011....? After deletion and reinstall it gave me that "missing dll file" error?

Expecting delivery of a XFX R7870 Black Edition today, can anyone recommend which software to use for overclocking as i have seen mixed comments, though in large MSI after Burner seems preferable to other 78XX owners.
post #2619 of 4099
I personally use Asus GPU Tweak. The only thing you cannot do with it would be the power control setting, but you can easily raise that to +20% in CCC.

There are many new 7800 users that get locked voltage control or 1050mhz clock limited by afterburner.
GPU-tweak have much less user reported problems ... you only need to click the bottom circle button to "advanced mode" ... go into settings > tuning > tick the OverclockingRangeEnhancement box

the february 2012 build didn't have the +20% .... when I updated to the september build it appeared
been running pretty much bug free .... don't see a point to update to newest version unless I get confirmation on new features ... they don't post any changelog
