Gigabyte 7970 GHz Edition or Gigabyte 7970 OC Edition?
IN MY OPINION, you should consider a kepler if you dont want to bother with overvolting and OCing. The reason is that they overclock by themselves via the boost feature.
Otherwise, get the OC version. It's really not worth it to spend an extra 100$ if you dont want to do any overclocking.
First I'm new here. sorry for english. I'm studying that.
I tried flashing the Gigabyte GHz BIOS (1100/6000) onto the OC version (1000/5500) now It's work fine
Anyone still use GB HD7970 oc . I have some thing to tell u guys.
I just flashed my card. [GB HD 7970 oc Rev 1.0] It's work.
The bios I used
HP Format Tool
Latest ATi Flash
But first step is Setup USB Drive
Setup USB Drive
*don't forget ot backup file*
* Select the drive you want to use
1. Download DOS Start Files and HP USB Format Tool
2. Extract "win98boot"(default) folder
3. Run HPUSBDisk as Admin
4. Select Device, Change Volume label if necessary.
5. Check "Create a DOS startup disk using system files located at:"
then Download ATIFlash 3.86 on google
After that, copy ATIFlash 3.86 files to the usb drive. Then copy the bios [on download link] over to the usb drive.
BACKUP YOUR BIOS!
you can also backup your BIOS with GPU-z.
save backup bios over to the usb drive too.
Actually Name of bios file is *Club3D.HD7970.3072.120711.rom*. but i rename it as *ghzbios.rom*
*ghzbios is the bios for flash
*Bbios is backup bios
after set up usb drive. here we go.Let's flash it
No Worries . Usually You have two BIOS positions on the card.
before flash. switch bios switch on 7970 to mode 2.
1. restart system
2. boot to usb drive that we set up. you can see Window98boot
look like this.
but not like me. cuz i forgot to take a photo in that step.
3.type the following
This will get your device ID(s) for your card(s).
Now your device ID should show like on my screen.
The Device Number is 0 as shown on my computer.
"atiflash.exe -p 0 ghzbios.rom [name of bios] -fa -fm -fp -fs" ...........ENTER
4.you will see the text " to complete vbios please restart"
5. restart you system or press "Ctrl+Alt+Del"
