    Hello.

    I have a xfx hd6970. I tested this card with 1.15V [MSI-Afterburner] successful @ 950/1450.
    So I thought to change the gpu-voltage @ bios with rbe 1.27
    (from 1.175 to 1.15)

    After i saved the modified bios i tried to flash my card - without success - i got the message that the rom can not be deleted.

    Finally I found this command: atiwinflash -unlockrom 0
    After that I could finally flash this card with the mod bios.

    After the reboot i tested it out...
    Now gpu-z still shows 1.175V, but msi afterburner shows 1.15V ?!
    What is correct?

    GPU-Z does not show real voltage from graphics card. MSI Afterburner does. I have changed voltage on my HD6950 to 1.2V and MSI AB shows 1.2V and GPU-Z 1.1V (default voltage for HD6950).

    Nothing to worry about.

    you mean from 5850 to 6970... Yes it was more than i thought!
    with my 5850 @ 950 / 1180 i had around 170 fps in BF BC2
    now i have around 200 fps (6970 @ 950/1450)

    I wouldnt have bought it but i got the card for 225 euro!
