Do you guys think there is something wrong here with my GPU? It's awfully low in FPS..the choppiness of videos in HD doesn't help either..

Here's a screenshot

Is there a bios update for your video card? Flashing it to the newest bios might fix that up.

I just tried it and it doesn't seem to work..

I followed the steps and I used the MSI BIOS..

Quote:
The Steps

Note: Make a backup of your original BIOS using GP-Z
Plug in the USB drive that you want to use.
Install and run HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool.
Select the USB Drive. In the "File system" drop down box, pick FAT32. Tick "Quick Format". Tick "Create a DOS startup disk, using DOS system files located at and click the "..." and direct it to the BOOTFILES folder you made.
Click start.
Once that's done, copy the ATI Flash and ASUS BIOS into the USB drive.
Restart your PC and boot from the USB Flash drive.
Once it's booted in type
atiflash -f -p 0 asus.rom (If you're not using crossfire)

I used the MSI one so I went: atiflash -f -p 0 MSI_R5850_unlock.A11
Is it supposed to be like this in DOS? In DOS it says..

Hmm, well it says "ROM not erased" and listed a lot of other stuff...

Um, I ran out of overclocking room on my memory...I pushed it from 400mhz to 520mhz with no errors, and every time I pushed it more the fps went up, without an increase in the gpu clock. Even when I applied the max clock to the gpu there was no difference in the fps rating...So is there any way to get the MSI afterburner utility to push the memory further?

And yes, I already applied the EnableUnofficialOverclocking tweek.

Edit:
Ok...for some reason, restarting afterburner a few times unlocked the extra memory overclock...wierd

Edit again:
And now it disappeared again...wth?

Last Edit (Hopefully):
I believe I solved the problem. I had to apply my max memory clock, close afterburner, reopen then set my clocks again. Now the new problem is that my memory clocks don't get set upon startup. They stay at the stock 400 because my set 555 is outside the slider's range. Does anyone know of a fix for this other than me manually opening the program and applying my workaround every time I startup?

Sat down last night and slowly pushed my 5870 to 950/1300. Then played Grid, Darksiders, and MW2 for about a hour each with no problems and temps at 60c... Any idea how much more i can push it with Afterburner before i have to start messing with voltages?

Every card is different, once it starts becoming unstable, slowly increase volts while keeping eye on temps.

Haha...fantastic to see, thanks for signing up an commenting
Don't forget to stay around, there's plenty of useful content round these parts even if you aren't an extreme overclocker
