Currently im using 7950 with custom gigabyte bios

default clocks 1000/1375

Problem is the bios works for everything incl fully working with msi afterburner.
here is the issue though this bios breaks the cards HDMI port. and i need this port for HDMI 1.4a spec for 3d Movies.

-------------------------------------

I have flashed about a hundred bios`s in the search for a working hdmi port but there does not seem to be one or i cant find one or i do find one but then it breaks msi afterburner
reason why i flashed a custom bios in the first place as msi does not work with the cards default bios cant change voltage ect.

-------------------------------------

does anyone have a fix ? very strange that the hdmi port would break :/ :(

Some driver versions break HDMI audio... If that's your problem. I would stick to the bios made for your card so there are no problems. Since you use MSI Afterburner, you can set the clocks where you want anyways.

Nothing to do with audio. the bios actually break the hdmi port, no video out or audio out from the port even when booting from bios ect...
only the original bios will let the hdmi port out work.......

im in search for a custom bios be it 7950 or 7970 bios that will work with afterburner voltage changing ect as well as hdmi out working on the cards.
i cant use original bios as it fixes everything apart from voltage changing in afterburner does not work and i need that.

NO the bios did not brick the cards :/
all the bios does is brick the hdmi out port on the cards the cards still boot up and work perfect with displayport out or dvi out but not hdmi.
i need a custom bios that works with hdmi out working as well as msi after burner voltage changing.

i can only get 1 or the other :( cant find a all in one working bios.

You may have to just stick with the original bios or use a DVI to HDMI adaptor

Hmmm then stock bios is were you would need to stay. I believe it would be quite hard to find a bios that you are looking for since these new cards have turbo and such.
