Hello!

I need some help here i intend to modding my alienware M17X-R2 Mobility Radeon 5870 CFX VBIOS so i can use the overdrive. I have extract the hash from the MSI GX740 5870 VBIOS and ASUS G73J 5870 VBIOS the problem is i not sore i may do something wrong or miss something because is not working. CCC2 will not enable the overdrive top of that my M17X-R2 5870 has a standard clock for the gpu 300MHz and 400Mhz for RAM but the hash overwrite that to 700/1000 should i worry about that??
when i used the msi hash my videocards went dead just got tha replacement from dell today.

Someone could tell me what do i do wrong or what i missed???

thanks.

This will not work. Mobility BIOSes don't have the code for overdrive capability. Just adding the overdrive value tables won't change that.

So you mean i not able to enable overdrive on my M17X just adding the hash ?? unless alienware release the bios with overdrive support. I unable to use asus or msi vbios in my cards because i assume the motherboard will deny boot after (whitelist limitation) i experienced it...
but thanks anyway BAGZZlash :D just stik with the oc'd vbios i can go up to 850/1250 not bad "would bi nice to have OD in CCC"
Thanks.

Just a question i know is may not a good topic for that. Someone please able to dump the dell version of "AMD Radeon HD 6870M" Firmware from M17X r3 sence is a same core than 5870 use i cancelled my order. I not going to change a crossfirex config to single just because of some rebranding. If an admin knows where to post, it please move it there. :S
