Honestly, if you're stable, and you're having no issues at all with those clock speeds, I'd just leave it alone in your case.

My cards have ASIC of 77.3% and 78% so default voltage was 1.112v

So after the flash my default reading in MSI AB was 1.093v as expected.
389x546px-LL-78c56b5f_msi.jpeg

BUT!!!!!!!

MSI AB OSD is saying 1.149v while playing games and HWinfo64 seems to be backing that up (well 1.131v, but I guess there is Vdroop)
600x86px-LL-601c22e5_BF3.jpeg
451x278px-LL-febcd110_ati.jpeg


The problem I have now is that I can't seem to apply any voltage adjustments in MSI AB  rolleyes.gif

On a side note, MSI AB give me an update about two days ago to 2.2.2, but I don't see that on there site, what version are others using ? ( I use MSI AB because I like the OSD)

Same issue, cannot apply volts now for some reason. Shame and I might see of flashing again helps, but with the ghz bios I can do 1125/1825 stock which is not bad. Confused why I cannot adjust voltages though.

Just flashed this bios on my 7970. Installation went well.
First of all, I have a low asic 7970 of 67.9%, stock voltage used to be 1.174v.
After bios flashing, stock voltage went to 1.2v, and msi ab osd shows 1.256 (used to show 1.174 (same as stock voltage)).
Also, when doing tests, at the same frequencies, I get about 1 fps less than I used to.
However, I'm now able to get higher stable overclock, from what I've seen so far anyway, I'll keep testing.

Are you able to apply extra voltage via AB and what driver did you use, 12.7beta ?

Yes, using 12.7beta, core voltage slider works in ab, however, voltage increase doesn't seem to work.
My max core frequency used to be 1150. Now I'm able to get 1200 stable (with 1.256v that im not able to change).

boot with the card on bios 1 then flip the switch while windows is running then flash bios 2 with the original bios for your card
