weird bios flashing ( xfx 9600gt xt )

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

So I have 2x xfx 9600gt xt in SLi. I both flashed them to the same clock speeds. Weird thing about this is one of the cards seems to be operating in fixed steps regarding speeds. For example, I can clock 1 card to say, 747 core, 1875 shaders, 1903 memory and it stays at the speeds I have entered. If I flash my other card using the same settings/speeds/bios it turns out like this 750core, 1900 shaders, 1900 memory... its like its rounding off the speeds....

I cant get 1000mhz memory with this card. Its either 999mhz or 1008mhz. Theres nothing in between... same is for core and shader speeds...

Its not the SLi, cos if I use that card in single mode ( removed the "good" 9600 from my system ) it shows the same behavior...

Does anyone know what could be wrong with this 9600 ?

Thanks!

If SLI is working and everything I would worry about it. Mine seem to jump a few mhz between numbers in riva also. I can't get them to exactly 770/1900/1000
Its more like 770/1899/998. SLI will automatically over clock the second card to match the top card so really just clock the top one where you want it. You mean you can't get it exactly on 1000 right? Not that card won't run 1000mhz?

yep thats right. It will do 1000+mhz. But it wont clock exactly the way I set it up. Altough my other card does....makes me think theres a problem with the card.

Make sure the pcie frequencies are equal, supposedly changing the pcie frequency for the 9600 will change the clock speeds as well.
