    Hi, I'm looking for the BIOS for the 7970 Lightning which I can't seem to find anywhere online.
    I want to try it with my 7970 Power Edition to get the higher standard clocks. I uploaded PE my Bios through GPU-Z, so that may appear at some point.

    Thanks,
    petejk

    How does your card handle over clocking?

    I've been running at 1070 gpu and stock memory clocks in crossfire with an identically clocked ref MSI for a couple of days. No benchmarking (apart from a couple of run throughs of Heaven), but seems to be solid.

    I'm not really interested in looking at anything higher than that for now, maybe once I've improved a little on my case fan setup

    Sounds decent.

    How much head room for over clocking does your stock BIOS give you for over clocking on the voltage settings and clocks?

    1300 gpu and 1600 memory showing in ccc.
    I would really like to see how this card works with the lightning bios, so if anyone has it I would appreciate a link, even if on a PM.

    IF you flip the onboard switch to the 'LN2' you will find p/n 113-AD40900_X01 dated 2012/02/01
    it is the LN bios
    also take the stupid blue cover off the GPU reactor all it does is hold in the heat the reactor can reach temps of 65+ @1070mhz cover on .....cover off <55 @ 1090mhz
