Hardware: 1 Asus EAH4850 512MB on a Asus P5Q motherboard...details in Sys Specs
The issue: A friend got a Powercolor HD 4850 (not 100% sure it's a Powercolor but it's a HD 4850 512 mb single slot reference design), it had original HD 4850 BIOS with high temps, 625/993 MHz UVD clocks etc. I recommended RBE, told him about the risks, and after flashing his card with my updated Asus BIOS from their site (I sent him a GPU-Z saved bin) he reported strange&erratic fan reportings in GPU-Z (constant fan speed and such - I'll have to talk more to him about that, I read about it from his offlines).
I took another look and found some RBE erratic behavior myself: after loading a bin bios, then a rom Winflash aquired one, the "Fan settings" page showed messed up info, wrong values in the look up table and so on.
You can replicate the situation by acquiring the BIOS with Winflash and then loading a bin BIOS on "Fan Settings" page. Not sure if it's just the visuals or it will influence a subsequent flash of the card with corrupted values.
I attached the 3 relevant BIOS, hope that it helps. Thank you for your hard effort in developing this app.
EDIT: Also uploaded a screenshot from RBE. Not only the graph is bugging, but the tick boxes (PWM ramp on) also. Not sure about other pages but Fan Settings.
