join the Asus Direct CU II 7970's owners in this Locked out club :D
any news ?
i will get that board when i upgrade i think
They are yet to make a Bios, Will update here when they give me new info
i dont know, But if the voltage did raise you would see a good overclock, this is based on when you hardmod one of these you can get very nice clocks...
i dont think your vcore actually raised at all mate
I can get 1150 @ 1.080v.... vdroop down to 1.064v
gThey fly when hardmodded.
I suspect that guys unlock did nothing but mafe it seem it uped the volts.
If it did he would hit 1.25gz easy.
Please link us to the download for this bios and what u did exactly.
Also which drivers are you using?
wow, i would pay good money to have one of those set ups
OCUK is selling DGM versions of these for around £350
They have DP as well and a 3 year warranty.
Plus you can DSR it with 14 days if it has a...
I'm sorry but Why are you on this thread?
before the TOP bios i could hit 1100Mhz on core MAX @ 1.030v
With Top bios i could hit 1150Mhz on core...
the VRMs on the Direct CU 2 are not Weak, They are very good, this card was made for LN2 hence the whole voltage tweak with a Maximus motherboard....
I love the look of clear tubing, Such a shame it wont stay clear tho :/
Which card do you have?
I will think you may find that they actually were not, When i did this it "said" my core voltages were changing on GPU tweak, but i couldn't get past...

"Thank you for contacting Asus support with this issue.

You lucky Bugger

Seems the DC2...
Ok so i got up today, turned on my pc to get on with some work and GPU Tweak is showing voltage of 1.175 - 1.170 bounceing between the two...
Yea stock 1.084v
Unfortunatly the directcu2 cards are voltage locked ;(
Come to the conclusion i need the maximus v mobo to hotwire my card
My cards voltage is 1.084v idle... Ref cards are 1.175.
I can do 1150mhz at moment.
1.060v load... That around 0.1v less than ref cards!!!
I'm sorry but you do know that the Asus DirectCu2 has the BEST vrms on any 7970 card dont you?
can i see the Monitor that shows your voltage at a higher level?
I havent touched the Bios Switch, I flashed it from in windows, there is no need to...
i can get 1125/6300 fine @ 1.066v (vdrop in effect)
I want 1200Mhz+ though
I never tried it on air, was first used under water :D
