However, you're better off just flashing to an unlocked 5850 BIOS because the unlocked 5850 BIOSes allow for higher voltages than the ASUS 5870 BIOS does. Am I correct?
yes you are correct.

Thanks for getting that cleared up for me. Anyway, I'm seriously considering one or two of these little beasts for my next upgrade.

I don't know if it changes the voltage in AB but I know it allows you to use a reference card to it's potential as far as overclocking the core and memory as it allows for up to 1200 core clock, 1400 memory clock.

Your graphics card might not support the bios, I am not quite sure as it isn't the same reference cooler as ours. If anyone knows about this, could you inform us if it will work so this fellow will not brick his card?

The program does not use any operating system. What you do is boot into your flash drive by plugging it into a usb port and restarting your computer, changing your bios settings to use that as a HDD boot device. Then, it will boot into DOS. (It will say "C:\\>"). Then you type in

atiflash -p -f 0 A5850U.bin (enter)

Note: that is with your card in the first pci-express x16 slot. If you have it on the lower slot, change the 0 to a 1.

Then, wait for it to update the bios and it will say restart to finish the update. Once you restart after that, just switch the boot HDD to your regular hard drive and boot into windows 7. Done! It will install drivers and whatnot hopefully.

Have a go at 3dmark06 or vantage or do the farcry 2 benchmark or crysis benchmark? I want to see some numbers here. 3dmark06 preferred.

I've gotten 26k on my system before but I have no idea how he got his cpu to crank out 7k. I only get 6.7k on my 4ghz hyperthreaded pc.
