HIS 3870 IceQ3 problem - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I've had a 3870 iceq3 since December and have been having the same problems since I got it. Flashing the bios (linked on NCIX) hasn't helped much. The fan seems to speed up more appropriately than before, but I still set it to 100% and underclock the core and memory (775/1175) when playing games.

I can at least play games without as many crashes (still does though). I think my next step is to re-seat the cooler on the card, but I'm a little worried about damaging the thermal pads on the memory. Has anyone here taken their card apart, re-applied new thermal paste, and achieved the cards stock performance from doing so?

Also, which bios have you guys flashed to?
