I've never heard of this happening to anyone, reference card or not.

Are you sure you changed the right flag in the right file?

Its the one at this exact path:

C:\\Program Files (x86)\\MSI Afterburner\\msiafterburner.cfg

and it's this flag:

EnableUnofficialOverclocking = 1

It should already be there with a value of 0, and you have to restart AB for it to work, obviously.

If it still doesn't work, try flashing to the Asus or MSI unlocked 5850 bios, since it's a reference card that should be fine.

You might try editing the flag for it in the config file directly instead of via the AB UI. Only thing I can think of offhand.
