Ofc extreme is faster... stock settings are higher. also temp is higher... with auto settings on fan the original bios goes up to 76 C , extreme went up to 78°C.

Think i am gonna run the extreme on stock for a while. see how it holds in regular gaming

I appreciate you doing that and for posting a brief guide on how to flash the BIOS using Zotac's tool. I will be sure to update the OP soon with all of this valuable information after I complete my own flash. It looks like UPS is doing some weird stuff with my package (it was an hour away from me and now it is halfway across the country again?) So hopefully I have my new card in hand by early next week. Also just a tip here, if you own Battlefield 3 or Battlefield 4 I would recommend playing those games to test the stability of your card with the new BIOS at stock settings.

During my time spent modifying AMD BIOS files I found that even though a card may appear "stable" in benchmarks and some games, the Frostbite engine that DICE uses would always expose flaws and cause crashing if the card was even slightly unstable. This allowed me to really lock in some rock stable clocks on my cards without needing to ever use any OC programs or editors since everything was just baked into the BIOS itself.
