flashing bios's: a weird success story!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to share with everyone a weird occurrence. I've been having the hardest time getting my WF3 7950 running right at high clocks. It would run great for a week and then I'd have issues and they got worse and worse. I tried all sorts of things and even changed my psu to no change. So i decided to flash my bios and see what would happen. Well I did that and it basically made my card not work at all other than at stock clocks mad.gif Here starts the weird part though: I reflashed the original bios onto the card but I downloaded it off of gigabytes website the flash succeeded and wouldn't you know it my card is working better than ever! I'm thinking I might of had a corrupt BIOS somehow. Either way I wanted to share this in hopes that maybe it helps somebody else! thumb.gif
