xrelic, it's always best to use the original bios that actually came on the card. If you venture off using other bios that never came on the card, issues can arise.
If you see the card, find your original bios you dumped and your sure it's the original backup. Flash that. Then send it to me haha
I wanna make it run right for ya guy's but only the reference card can handle no-throttling on the big end. I want to find the proper clock speeds for un-touched card. So that's what I'll be doing. Just to see what the card can do without touching anything except the mounting bracket/ exhaust grill.
It's clear reference is the best here since I am hitting such awesome performance numbers.
So maybe we will need to start off DeLimited 1267Mhz and see if it can handle that clock without throttle and move up from there... Until we find the clock that throttles, and then back off the clock 33Mhz for stability. DeLimited means 1267Mhz will use as much power as it needs, meaning it could still cause components on the PCB to hit temperature limit and throttle if fan speed isn't high enough. It will supply it the voltage it needs, and it doesn't need more voltage or anything.
The BIOS will auto-adjust more or less voltage according to max and hotspot temperatures, along with clocks.
There are quite a few chips that aren't cooled which hit this limit causing throttling so if you want better performance would need to break down the card. Or dial back clocks on DeLimited power.
