    I recommend you download RBE and read the official documentation before getting started.

    Why do you need to edit the BIOS?

    Amd hd6970

    Thanks for reply I have been usung RBE for awhile, only reason I like to edit bios to have better 2d clock such as my HD6970 as soon as I connect second display it kicks up the gpu to 500mhz ram 1375 gpu volt 1.0 all this keeping tepms around 63c vs 47c single display idle gpu150 mhz ram 250mhz also card comsumes about 75watt more with dua display.
    I have second system at my office similar setup with ATI HD4650 this much less powerfull video card and gpu 300mhz ram400 mhz while watching low res videos and it kicks up gpu600mhz ram400 mhz with 1080p hd all the time. if I can edit bios to control this so it would not kick in to high mhz I could save my self power and extra fan noise :)

    So in it's simplest form you need to go into overtuning wizard in RBE to change in this case lower clocks, if you need to change the voltages associated with these clocks you will need to play with the GPU registers first methinks. Happy to help with the Bios if you need it, never lowered before but I suppose the theory is the same as increasing!
