Sent you a link to it on my cloud drive. LIke I said, you should try to get the driver patch working before you load the bios. If you can't get that working, the bios does you no good. It's the stock bios with the amp and power unlocks and +60 rather than +50. The other settings are all defaults.

Great got it, something I can't understand it's why you need to patch the driver to get the patch work

The driver looks to make sure amd signed the bios. There's a check in the driver that keeps diy bios mods from working. The patch removes the check. You have to go into windows 10 test mode and test sign the patch or it won't work. Like I said it's kind of a pain.

Edit: the driver wont load with a custom bios not signed by AMD in other words.

I see thats because when you mod the bios in polaris, and flash then windows start with a error.-

But how der8auer made a bios and not need this patch?
post #1025 of 4133
His bios was signed by AMD.

Ohhhhh Nice... well but its extrange you have problems with that bios i mean, you have less overclock with that bios.-

Very strange. There has to be a unexposed setting that my card doesn't like. Or it was a fluke. But I hard locked using that bios with my 24/7 overclock.. That was with his signed version unmodified and asus gpu tweak II. I also modified his bios and applied my oc dirrectly to it. I lockup in valley. hard. I put the same settings into my stock bios and valley finishes fine. I add 8mv to the unlocked air bios and my oc is kinda stable. Why should I need 8 more mv on his bios? I haven't done a hex dump looking for differences. It's working for me. I just thought you'd be interested since I know you're using that bios.

You mean when you have the air unlocked bios and put your same overclock with clocks, voltages, etc - You are unstable, and you need to add at the same clocks speeds 8mv more ?

yes. Just to almost finish valley rather than locking in first half. I gave up finding stable.

Mmm probably it's a load line calibration difference, because that it's set it in the bios it's a Hex code - Probably... the Vdrop you have with your stock bios it's less than the vdrop you have with the unlocked air bios.-
You can check that, with your original bios put the stable voltage and see de Vdrop at full load, then put the air unlocked bios at the same test and see de Vdrop probably you have a difference of Vdrop - how much? probably 8mv
