I originally updated my BIOS hoping it would let me view my MB BIOS during boot on one of my displays (sadly, it did not fix that and I simply bought a new display)
My overclocks lately have been really unstable and random, even around stock clocks. I swear I remember when I first got the card having it stable with +150mhz no problem, now it's just horribly unstable. I noticed while stress testing with the standard BIOS that right before my display driver crashes my vddc drops from 1.25 to 1.08 (That certainly would cause a slip!) Although I'm not sure as it could be happening right AFTER the crash, hard to tell.
Anyways back to the point: Is there a possibility I have the wrong BIOS installed and nvflash is recognizing this? If I get the correct custom bios installed and pump a bit more voltage do you think I can finally OC again? What are the chances I burnt my chip with the standard 87mv boost? (as I understand, impossible!) I even tried changing the PCIE 6-pin connectors on my PSU (850w modular)
