Still no voltage control...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just flashed my 6870 bios with the one on the ASUS website because I couldn't adjust voltage. To my dismay, I can't move the slider in both Smartdoctor and Afterburner. I find it really odd that a product having the notice that you can control voltage slapped on it and can't anyway. I tried to find another BIOS but I fear they won't work. I also just installed Trixx and no avail. Is there a solution to this? I feel like I just got scammed.

Only thing I got to say. The slider is literally out of the bar to adjust it.

I don't feel like doing a RMA. There was a post about a similar case on OCN and Asus VIP forum but they haven't got any response. Some says a bios flash solve everything but ASUS doesn't give the BIOS directly, it's a .exe patcher that tells me there is no device to flash. If someone could give me one from a card with voltage working I could have a try.

Never had it. at first I saw someone saying that the new bios solved it so I told myself that it would be alright but now that I want to overclock it it doesn't want at all. the slider reset to 1.2v all the time.
