    Sapphire 7970 Dual-X: Random bluescreen on bios bank #2 - should I flash newer bios?

    Installed Catalyst 13.1, powered off and switched to Bank #2 (overclocked bank). Booted up and opened the AMD Vision Engine Control Center. Clicked the AMD Overdrive section and sure enough, it's checked as enabled and set to the stock speed of 950MHz Core and 1450MHz Effective Memory Clock. I...

    Sapphire 7970 Dual-X: Random bluescreen on bios bank #2 - should I flash newer bios?

    I take it reflashing the bios will only flash the one bank that I've booted into? If so, would it be easy to reflash it if I end up with a bad flash? I booted DOS from a disc about 6 years ago, might still have the disc laying around. I was under the impression that voltage tweaking wasn't...

    Sapphire 7970 Dual-X: Random bluescreen on bios bank #2 - should I flash newer bios?

    Edit: Solved Ordered the Sapphire 7970 Dual-X in late October 2012 and got it early November. This is the first dedicated graphic card I've bought/installed, and it seemed to work fine. One day I decided to try bios bank #2 which is supposed to be the lightly overclocked bios: 1000MHz Core...
