Its very possible that your card does not have any hardware onboard for voltage change and if this is the case then trying to change voltage via bios will not be effective.

A good start would be a link to the exact model/board of your gpu.
How do I provide that ?

Can you show pics of the exact board?

And also,do you have a second card just incase you need to reflash your card after an error should anything bad happen?

Hm, not atm, but I've been postponing a much needed dust cleaning on it so I'll take some pics.

I have a HD 3450 on the other PC.

You can post pics from the net, if you are very very sure this is exactly your model.

The Powercolor PCS+ i have seen on web has Voltage regulator modules under a heatsink at the end of the card.

Im sure there should be software to enable you to make this voltage change without the need for bios editing.

You say you have tried MSI Afterburner,but have you entered the settings and ticked the box to enable voltage control(and restart software to enable) as this is needed before voltage control is allowed.

Also worth trying Rivatuner but i have not used this for a while now so im little sketchy with its options etc.

Im little confused as theres many different answers all over the net about the same card,some people claim a bios edit has worked while other say the had to hard volt mod.

I hope somebody with experience with this card can pick this up for you and offer you the right help,all i know is id hang on with a bios flash unless you have a board with 2x pcie lanes or you can blind flash incase of need to recover original bios.

But is it the 512mb version or the 1GB version because there are 2 versions, mine is the 512 btw

And yes, my mobo has 2 PCI-E lanes.

Regarding Afterburner, yes I've done that.

I just undervolted my 4870. If your card has the voltage control modules (which i think it has), MSI Ab will work.
