before i flash the bios.....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i have a sapphire X850XT which runs fine at 560/1225 and wonder if the platnium edition bios would actually improve anything..........i would believe it might help a tiny bit. Also the tweaking program that comes with the sapphire cards, trixx, doesn't work on my card.......isn't that wierd? It says sapphire cards only and closes........although i've extensively tested the card and other then this it seems to be working flawlessly....and trixx sucks anyway right? I've been using ATI tool with no problems thus far. Does flashing the bios on a third party's already overclocked card a bad idea? or does it not matter since the core is the same no matter whose brand you buy........and one last thing, does flashing the bios to a first party ati bios screw with the fan settings at all...........since its a sapphire fitted fan/heatsink

Flashing to an X850 XT PE BIOs won't do anything, except give you those stock clock speeds (less then what you currently have it overclocked to), and will be recognized as the Platinum Edition when applicable. 99% of the time it will just be refered to as an X850 card, and won't even matter.

So theres pretty much no point at all, and the slight risk of damaging the card.
