How to flash bios...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So most of the guides on OCnet are outdated, and/or broken :

(By broken I mean this: http://www.overclock.net/t/640063/how-to-flash-ati-cards , the images don't load and so the text makes no sense).

I've installed the HP USB Disk Storage tool, but then there is meant to be an image there, and I have no idea what to do. Can someone please help me out here?

Thanks. I want to flash because the cruddy boost bios makes it go to 1.25V, which is bad for temps.

I've worked it out, but now I just need to find a good bios. The one I used I don't think was for the IceQ version I have, it just had an IceQ picture on it, so I assumed so. Does anyone have a IceQ Turbo or IceQ regular bios I can use? cheers!

i also have a reference made by AMD 7970 ghz edition i want to flash it to the normal 7970 bios, but every bios i have tried screws up the gpu and makes it un-recognized by the drivers and reads 0 mhz on core speed....

Ended up flashing to a 7970 Bios, a HIS GHZ one. Worked perfectly. moved it from the stock 7970 1.17 V (Boost is 1.25V), to 1V, and its running solidly. Went from 86 degrees @1.25V at 80% fan speed, to 74 degrees @ 45% fan speed. So 12 degree temp difference and a 35% fan speed difference. Would get more comparable results if I ran the 7970 Bios card at 80% fan speed to get realistic results. very happy right now. Had remorse when I was running it at 86 degrees, now happy at a quiet 74 degrees.

Any future people who stumble across this thread (I was stumbling across google and I got upset at the lack of results, so this should popup for people looking for the same thing)

I used the bios from TechPowerUp, the 7970 Bios, with 1050/1400, and I just undervolted and underclocked from there to 1V and 925/1250.

May I know what software are you using to tune your voltages? MSI-afterburner doesn't properly adjust voltages and Trixx just hangs whenever the voltage is adjusted. HIS' iTurbo application doesn't properly run on startup but can properly adjust the voltages.
