    Hello.

    Can someone tell me which bios is compatible with my card in order to get better overclocking. Now I have about 1100/6000 with default bios and Asus GPU Tweak. Would love to get about 1200/7000 with voltages as low as possible.
    My settings https://monosnap.com/image/jRiuOBnNOSIq9f8Ocox41MNx9

    What program should I use to flash bios, edit voltages/power limits?

    Why are you flashing a bios in the first place? (Why do people that are not benchmarking competitively risking bricking their cards for negligible gains?!!!!)

    Have you adjusted the voltage on the card? Can you give us some information... un

    I wanted to flash it with some newer bios or bios which has my overclocked settings as default 3D state.

    I've managed to get 1200/7000@1,200V/1,700V. 3D Mark Fire Strike at extreme preset passed ok. Fur mark worked fine. But after about 10-20 minutes of Crysis 3 I've got black screen and had to reboot. Don't think this is a good result and wanted to improve it with bios maybe.

    Yeah 3DMark FStrike will run higher clocks than I can game with as well. Pretty common. Id use Unigine Heaven or 3dMark11 to test personally...

    That said, have software do that and just have it load with windows. Done with ZERO risk. Something like MSI Afterburner would do just fine.

    I see so many people with these asus cards and flash their bios for 'better' gains and within two weeks fried em and then blame Asus for crap design! I got the same card, tried many bioses and the best is the one you got, trust me!

    and the new update bios on asus site will lock voltages and lessen overclocks.

    just get stable clocks and it will work better.
