It makes the card overclockable in some cases.Unless it's a certain card,I wouldn't even try it.

Ok, first off you need to cool it on all of the new threads. Some of what you're asking could have been incorporated into the same one.

Possibilities?

On the plus side you could get a performance boost. On the opposite side of the coin you could end up with a fried card due to extremely high temperatures and most often a voided warranty if you can't roll the BIOS back.

Putting asside a performance boost you need to be aware of the risks.

Using a BIOS not comaptible with your cards PCB can result in a dead card.
Using a BIOS with higher clock speeds causing overheating can cause artifacting.
Using a BIOS with higher voltage settings can fry your card.
