Hello techpowerup! I'm new here and this is my first post!
As the title shows, I need help to make my GPU go over 1.000V. My GPU is a Pitcairn based card with GCN 1.0

I tried software like VBE7 to change my voltage but since my gpu is UEFI it doesn't work, and when I try to boot my GPU without its UEFI vbios, my UEFI only motherboard takes over 1minute to get a signal and nothing changes.

VBE7 only works with non-uefi bios (I read that from a different forum). So I tried various methods like modding MSI afterburner. It did work making me go over the max voltage limit but when applied nothing changes in monitoring software such as GPU-Z. I really want to go past 925mhz core because my GPU still has thermal headroom. I know it's a 75w only card so it might be a hassle to overvolt it.

The last method I haven't tried was modifying the UEFI bios using hex editing but I don't know how to do that, unfortunately, so if you are willing to mod my vbios that would be greatly appreciated!!
Also My voltage controller is a Volterra VT1556M for those who are interested I guess :). I also added some screenshots and vbios!

Here are the specs:

my gpu doesnt support it

Disable the limits with Msi afterburner
I tried doing that but when going past 1.000v nothing changes, I looked at gpu-z sensor and its still stuck at 1.000v

My gpu's voltage controller can be controlled by software but I guess its hard locked... Hmmm

Thats my last option, VBE7 vbios modding doesn't work so Hex editing is the last idea I came up with, because ofc the vbios is uefi only and hex editing probably works for it.
