post #3581 of 5048
Quick question, I've got a sapphire 5770 with the voltage locked in MSI Afterburner, and I've tried to unlock it through the program, but it won't unlock. I'm pretty sure this is because BIOS I have has the voltage locked, and from what I could gather in this tread, flashing to the ASUS BIOS will unlock the voltage. Can anyone just verify that for me quickly? Also, how safe is it to flash my BIOS?

yeah it will work but you can brick you card if something goes wrong when you flash bios. i've flashed the bios on my cards a couple times and had no problems but it can happen. just make sure you read up on how to do it and you shouldn't have any issues. its actually really easy. just format a flash drive with some dos files so you can boot with it and load the bios on it and start the pc with flash drive as the boot drive. then type dir and then flash, or just flash. its been a while since i've done it so you should look up proper instructions.

Also make sure you have another video card around in case the card gets bricked, as some times the card will not even output video.

Guys!!! Finally i got it working =D


I remembered that I had another spare hard drive in my room in which it did not have anything in it.. so i was like.. what the heck... lets install XP Professional x64 to it... after installing all the computer drivers... finally decided to go for Catalyst 10.6 - for some reason it works Perfectly, even both of the cards idle at 157/300 with no 2d issues. Right now its been almost 1 hour of testing: using the internet, youtube *full screen, played a bit an hd movie & random software... then rebooted about 5 times to insure that its certain its all working fine. Now what I have not yet tested is running a game... lol I have to install one

Now my concern what the heck is wrong with my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 side, I'm currently going to be using yet another hard drive doing a clean install to see if its my motherboard having an issue on windows 7 - because I did notice something on Windows XP that did not appear on Windows 7... it installed a PCI to PCI bridge driver automatically once i booted with 2 cards together... I never saw that appearing on windows 7... well I'll post back around 1 hour or so to see what happens on a fresh install of "7"

To be honest I do not want to format my current Windows 7 install(1Tb hd), I have over 27 PC games in it & ton's of software in which I lost most of those setup installers by a crippled external hard drive So if that install can't be fixed having CF... I'll just use 1 card only on that install

well I'm back... well the re-install of windows 7 at another hard drive did not help at all, it still causes the same complete OS freezing issue after enabling crossfire. I guess my board is not functioning correctly on windows 7. I'm right now on the XP side and its working perfectly fine... this sucks :/

Oh well at least I'll get my new mobo next week, pretty certain there I will have no issues at all on windows 7... DrBrownfinger has the same mobo in tri-fire lol

Is this the improvement I must see in 3DMark06 or is crossfireX supposed to be better?

This was the score I had when I was with a single 5770 stock and cpu @ 4ghz

Then this is CF 5770 stock and cpu @ 4ghz

G751 is the best. If newegg has it then that's what I'll be getting. I like performance-pcs but newegg is closer shipping-wise.

I don't get this. At 65% Fan GPU1 is cooler, at 25%fan GPU2 is cooler. I guess better airflow?
