I know it's inaccurate, but it still goes up from what it was at when you change it. If the change registers on the graph, then you're good.

Oh, and did you go into the Afterburner settings and select "Unlock voltage control" and "Unlock voltage monitoring"?

see with your own eyes.

Configuration and bios I'm using:

Notepad with the profile of AB already changed:






AB without changing anything:

and now the AB with a maximum voltage:




No one notices when no alteration increase the voltage, with voltage source do the +100 mhz GPU with a maximum voltage +100 mhz GPU do the same as the previous.

So finally i got watercooling installed and now i run core at 1359 mhz and memory 7200mhz - 24/7 with max temps of 55C under full load.

Think i gonna try some benching soon. If people wanna se how it looks follow the link. http://bildr.no/view/1377522

That's the idle voltage showing in GPU-Z. Go into the Afterburner Settings and under the monitoring tab select GPU1 Voltage, so that the voltage is showing on the Afterburner graph. Then do a 3dMark11 run with the voltage at stock and see what it goes up to on the graph. Then turn the core voltage slider all the way up and do another run. It should go up by about 100mv on the second run (even though it's not accurate, it'll still show the increase).

GPU-Z first of all doesn't report the voltage accurately either, but it's also showing the idle voltage in your pics, which will be the same in both pics since you don't have "Force constant voltage" checked in Afterburner.

Already added the GPU voltage to Watch list.
And in 3Dmark is the same, the voltage is not changed because stability also not increased.
the voltage in afterburner not have any effect on the graphics card.

Well this sucks sadsmiley.gif. I don't know. I'll keep looking over it to see if I can spot something.

What about just completely uninstalling 2.2.4 and trying 2.2.3? Or did you already try that?

Is it correct that the're two A3 bios'? Becasue i've downloaded two A3 bios files and one has a base clock of 1202 and the other of 1110Mhz. And i do mean A3 and not F8.

It's 3A, not A3. But yes, there's 2 versions of the BIOS that ends in 3A. The one uploaded to the first post of this thread is the unlocked one. There's many here that say they've gotten this same BIOS version on a card they bought, but it was locked down. So, while you could technically have the "3A" BIOS on your card, you might still be locked down until you flash to the "unlocked 3A" BIOS from the first post.

But before we started seeing the 80.04.28.00.3A BIOS coming on cards that are locked, there was the 80.04.29.00.3A BIOS, which also ends in 3A and is locked.

So, basically, just make sure you flash to the one uploaded to the OP smile.gif

Yes i did uploaded that 3A (tnx) bios. Though since i flashed to that bios at my DC2T card, i cant seem to flash to another bios except for (i just found out) the locked 3A bios.
I'm trying to find out what causes the card not to flash to any other bios except for these two

Yep, I been following that issue. Not sure how flashing the ROM would cause it to not take a subsequent flash, but I hope you figure it out soon. I've never had that issue before and have absolutely no clue on what the issue could be unfortunately. Sorry.

I would just try Google'ing issues that others have had with GPUs and BIOS flashes and see if any similar issues have happened to others, and if they found a fix.
