    Sapphire have released a new BIOS for the HD3870 which addresses fan speed control and also PowerPlay issues. I've tried to flash it under Winflash to my Asus EAH3870, but I get a Subsystem IDs mismatch error. In CCC by the graphics card manufacturer it just says Powered by ATI, so I assume its a Built by ATI card, and the BIOS posted at Sapphire mentions that its only for BBA cards. Should I try and force it with ATIFlash?
