    Can someone link me to a reference Asus 5870 BIOS so that I can download it and flash my reference Saphire 5870 BIOS to overcome the ATI CCC overclock limits. I know they are available in the BIOS section but I just want to make sure that I use the right one.

    Many thanks in advance.

    A reference Asus bios will have the same CCC clocks available. You can use Afterburner with your current bios.

    you dont need to change the bios. There's a setting in the ATI catalist folder you have to change if I remember correctly.

    As far as I know the ASUS and MSI BIOS is the only one that is unlocked when it comes to overclocking speeds.

    I have two Sapphire reference 5870's with stock bios and they allow me to OC up to 900 core/1300 ram in CCC but I can run 1100 core @ 1.2v/1350 mem with MSI Afterburner after enabling Unofficial Overclocking within the cfg file.
