MSI R9 270 Gaming -> R9 270X Gaming

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Is there any possibility to flash MSI R9 270X Gaming bios into R9 270 Gaming without bricking the card?
I read specs both cards and they are almost the same apart dual 6 pin connector on 270X and higher GPU clocks.
Appreciate for any input.

I'm actually wondering the same thing. I realize that the R9 270 has a TDP of 150 watts vs 225 watts for the R9 270X, and that's why MSI won't allow overvolting of their R9 270, but I can hardly see the harm of raising the GPU voltage up .012 volts offered by the MSI R9 270X Gaming edition. Especially since the TwinFrozer IV keeps the card so cool.
