Gigabyte HD 5850 1GB OC

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought this card thinking it was reference but it has a aftermarket cooler.
My issue is that I can't OC it because the voltages are locked completely.
Any attempt causes the screen the flicker and flash at random, and only in random areas, not the whole screen.
I wanted to know if I could flash the bios to unlock the voltages, or am I screwed on this card?

You can't OC at all? Not even just a few MHz? My guess is that It's probably the drivers, possibly a bad install or just buggy. 15.7.1 seems to work good on my 5850 so it may be worth giving it a try.
Just make sure to clean all the old driver files with DDU: http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

I'm using the lastest legacy driver, the 15.
Any increase makes it trip.

Hmm, that is very odd. You should be able to get higher than that on stock volts.

Maybe try bumping the clocks with this utility and see what happens; https://www.techpowerup.com/download/amd-gpu-clock-tool/

BTW, what you have is a 5830 not 5850.

And regarding the voltage, you will not be able to change it by modifying the bios, the voltage is hardware regulated so it would require physical modifications to change the voltage.

Wait, wut? I bought a 5850 though. I can't really check since it's always saying 5800 series, but maybe that's why I can't find and exact image of it..
It looks different.
