Voltage unlocking software

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have two Gigbyte Windforce OC R280's and they are voltage locked from factory (MSI Afterburned won't let me unlock or adjust voltage)...is there software out there to unlock the voltage or if it's factory locked then there's nothing I can do?

Cheers

According to your description they seems to have same problem as with my Gigabyte Windforce HD 7970 OC Rev 2.0 or later. Voltage is locked on hardware and requires HW mod to unlock.

You can either Mod your BIOS with Radeon HD 7000 BIOS Editor v0.42 or VBE 7.

Really simple tools, just backup your BIOS with GPU-Z.

Open the BIOS file with either of those tools and set the desired Core Voltage.

Flash the bios on your card and profit thumb.gif

Even people with the Windfore 7970 have been succesfull with these methods.
