Or will there be a difference in games that don't depend so much on the CPU? I think he's mostly going to play SC2 and WoW too though, ugh.
What a load of bs...., look up your motherboard model name and put overclock beside it in google. You'll see lots of other people with the same board doing their overclocks. If the problem is that you don't know how to overclock, I would suggest you look into it first to make it easier as I'm sure there's a few guides around this overclocking forum.

It's an Asus brand built for prebuilt HP computers: Pegatron Corporation Benicia. I have already read overclocking guides (overclocked my own) and have also looked up overclocking for that motherboard and people have said they do not have the BIOs options to overclock.

the weird part is that neither of 'em will run in full-screen mode, regardless of the gpu speed or voltage; everything goes black, and the hdd starts thrashing... i'm wondering if there is a driver issue of some sort.

If that board is a rebrand of one of the asus boards, you might be able to crossflash the bios.

With kombuster, a lot of unstable clocks seem to slip through for me. With OCCT, if I only get a few errors in 15 mins then it's stable enough to not crash games. But if I wanna do something like folding, I'd go for 0 errors over a longer run.

putting a fan right behind the card helped my temps, it might be worth a shot on your dual-card rig:

Is that risky? How would I find the right bios >__<..

I flashed to the 470 twin frozr ii bios last night, and things seemed normal last night, but today, stuff is whack.

Check out what the fan on the top card is doing in terms of the speed curve vs. the temp curve. It makes no sense, it's like it's just deciding to slowly ramp up to 100% ... for no apparent reason in terms of a corresponding temp hike.

I don't get it. Another thing I don't get ... you'd think the temp on the card would go down, at least by a little bit, when the fan ramps up to 100% ... but it apparently doesn't. I find that very strange as well.

Anyone else who's switched to the TFII bios seeing unusual fan behavior vs they had going before on their cards? I really don't want my fans at 100% at only 79C, personally. Yesterday it didn't get up the 90% range until temps were in the 90's. That's how I want it. I'm not using any fan profile, btw, just auto ... that's how I like it.

I'm not home right now but I can try and flash my working card with that BIOS later, if you like.


It's pretty strange that one GPU decided to zip right up to 100%. Is it consistent now or did it just happen during that Heaven run?

I did not read the past replies so I really have no idea what is going on here but if you are wanting to flash a HP branded board back to asus you will need to take out the board and inspect it carefully. I have done it before on my friend's computer and somewhere on the board it will give you the model number of the original board.
