I've updated OP, see heading Using GOPupd tool to update/add UEFI/GOP module so custom Fiji ROM will work with CSM=Off
If you use Fiji bios editor :-
tab there is nothing of interest to the casual modder other than Checksum status box of ROM they are gonna flash, etc.
ii) OverDrive Limits
tab is pretty self explanatory and has note on what to do to RAM: (MHz) on that page if you change it on PowerPlay
tab, so basically make it equal or higher than what you set in PowerPlay
tab basically has GPU clocks DPM 0 (idle) to 7 (highest), you change as you require. VID section you set the manual VID you require for the GPU clock/DPM in line with it. Heading How to edit VID per DPM
in OP has an image with SVI2 voltages table and an image showing how a stock vs manually set VID ROM looks like in Fiji bios editor. I purposefully kept the info "too the point" in that section. The note in that section also clearly says if you use Fiji bios editor below v1.2 then do what it says there but as v1.2 below is not in OP it can be ignored, it's only there for perhaps other bios modder to ref where the same revision of PowerPlay is used as Fiji (ie Tonga/Polaris), as I have noted people taking "cues" from Hawaii/Fiji bios mod and I do as well from other threads.
tab is self explanatory.
v) Power Limits
tab has short info there to help and if you ref the info in heading How to edit PowerLimit
in OP it has enough info IMO (and has been improved since thread started).
I hope that helps
I'm soon gonna just change OP by placing all the manual modding info in it's own section so casual / beginner modders don't see it and probably gonna just add above info to OP, as it seems those sections are not helping anyone
