At least a good power supply with perfect ripple is important, some dude on a forum had 3x 7970 and all went RMA because of his horrible power supply...
Power supplies def. need to be state of the art when you want a ROCK stable system.
I also had a system with Black spots on mainbard because of unbalance via crappy power supply....

Yes Afterburner tells you, next to the card model, if you're using the LN2 BIOS. When looking at your card in the computer (cooler on bottom and back of PCB on top, and the display ports are to your left) the switch to the right is the LN2 BIOS.

Also, always make sure the computer is completely powered down when switching.

Does adjusting voltage in your mb bios for your gpu work better then afterburner?

You can't alter GPU voltage at the MOBO BIOS. It has to be done with overclocking software (Afterburner/PrecisionX etc etc).

Welcome back xoleras! biggrin.gif

Yep, they're all locked. MSI is even keeping the BIOS label the same as the unlocked version, but locking it down (someone got the unlocked 3A BIOS but still had to flash to the one from the OP for 300% Power Target and voltage adjustment iirc a bunch of pages back).

I finally switched mine over to the non-LN2 BIOS to see what they're like. 1480mhz one boosts to 1202mhz, ha. Could have been running that at 1.175v this whole time frown.gif. Don't matter though, upgrading next series anyways.

Other than that, lot of new members, and awesomely high overclocks are still popping up here and there with ArtMoney.
