I'm Stumped

1, there is no option for "Update CRC" in Polaris Bios Editor (v1.7.2).

2, I can't find the hex values "8D 00 00 00 FF" in my bios using HxD to change vcore.

I've been trying to wrap my brain around what I'm missing but I can't figure this out.

I have an MSI RX 480 ARMOR 4G OC card. Any help would be very much appreciated!

I've read about 50 pages of this thread, and another on Polaris bios editing also on this forum.
Seems things have changed over the years regarding drivers and this conversion.
So Can someone please break it down for me..

I have an RX 470 4gb.
What was/is the main reason for flashing the video card bios to that from a 570?
Could the gains from the increased clocks just have been done via modifying the 470 bios? Or is there some other benefit for having the card show up as if it was a 570.(or 580 as I understand was required to get the driver to work?) (Until recently)

Seeing the following update on post#3..
"Update: since the 590, the driver compares the shaders/revision of the GPU. So, only the 480 can be switched to 580 with the no-patch benefit. All other SKU's have to patch the driver."

I may be missing something somewhere on how to patch the driver,(other than just running the ati pixel-patcher.exe) but this brings me back to, can I not get the same gains from modifying the 470 bios? Which I think means i still have to use pixel patcher due to the modified bios.

To which leads me to, even if I were to modify the bios.. and figure out how to patch the driver.. will I likely run into an issue since my 470 is a secondary GPU for my multi monitor setup, and the primary is a 390x ?

My Reasons for wanting to modify my 470 was more for fun than necessity. Though both of my GPUs are used moderately to heavily on a daily basis. Thus if I was able to get lower temps from this card, the 390 would be easier to manage, and/or better performance out of this card than it'll help and I may even offload a little more to this GPU from the 390x

Maybe this version corrects it automatically on save. If not, it would be very bad.. cause no BIOS would ever boot. So you have to correct CRC byte, btw, it is found at offset 0x21.

I added the ""8D 00 00 00 FF" bytes to the custom roms myself. And the 0xFF at the end means this is the end of the subtable, actually these are the two datatypes:
8D 00 = 0x8D = register on PWM controller
00 00 = this is the 6.25mV multiplier (some customs have 0x02 or 0x04 here, if register 0x8D is found)
Some BIOS have them, some not. You can add them, but then you maybe have to resize tables.

But since you also can edit the maximum and minimum voltage (post#3), offset isn't really needed anymore. Take in mind an offset applies all the time, it is also affecting idle voltage.

@Drew Fryer
Don't just flash some 570 BIOS, it has to be modified to fit your card.
Since you have a 470, you have to patch the driver either way. Benefits from a BIOS mod, if you don't need more voltage, would be the possibility to edit memory timings. But since you use it as a secondary card, not really worth it, i guess.
