AMD 7970m - modified VBIOS

Recommended Posts

I said that I've done just that. Issue is that all programs except MSI Kombustor (while running the stress test) show 1v. Kombustor shows 0.950v.

It seems that you have some kind of software crap.

i've tried this test and all the voltages and temperatures compatible with different programs.

Who said it?

Probably atiflash.

why it said "flash already programmed" all the time?...

Which commands did you use?

Yes, should work, but maybe sound per HDMI won't work anymore with the Dell vbios.

If you let me know your current 3d voltage and what you exactly want I might be able to help you out... post a dump of your vbios.

My card is stable at 1000/1400@1.15v on Unigine Heaven, but it's throttling down when using a bitcoin miner (gui miner).

Would flashing a bios with those clocks and voltage help? Could you make one please?

Edit: Nevermind, I ended up flashing the 950/1400@1.1v and it's pretty stable, I'll just leave like that.

Hello everybody!

I'm new here and I want to update my sweet M18x R2 with 7970m crossfire vbios in the next time. I also want to update my A03 modified bios to A09 modified bios version. Which vbios version would be a good option to start?

Thank you very much!

Just wanted to say:

1.075 volt

980mhz core

1450mhz memory ( could go higher only not really benefit)

I wish I could go higher but my card is not stable on higer voltages (I think, maybe driver related??)

If I bumb to 1.1volt on 1000mhz it will crash on some moment, just goes out and reboots.

I have tried 1.2 volt also and i could get it up to 1105mhz with MSI but it will crash on some moment, just random.

I have stress temps of 62 degrees on 1.075! to bad I can't go higher :(

I just got my M17x r4 last night and I love the power house! But for whatever reason none of the modified Vbios work for me. I get either a bsod or a not enough memory error. Tested with bf3. My original vbios says 118 instead of 117. Thats never been a problem in the past with other cards though. Oh well, thanks for your hard work!

Basically the vbios will not work if you bought an alienware recently... Any vbios that comes with anything higher than 117 will not work, until this method gets updated.

Hi guys

I try to flash the vbios with atiflash but I always get "rom not erased". I tried to unlock it and force the flash but I didn't work. Any ideas?

I forgot something important: I switched from a Dell bios to a clevo bios. Is it possible that the clevo bios is locked in some way?

Also have a strange problem ^^

I tried to OC with atiflash above 920/1320 but get BSOD everytime i try 3dMark11.

But when i use Afterbruner and crank ut up to 950/1450 i works like a charm, exept those DAMN flickerings when not in fullscreen mode :S

I tried with 1.100 and still wont work in 3dmark when i use ati flash.

Anyone else had this problem and might have a fix for it? ^^

The Bios version i have is 015.015.000.001.042717

(113-C42904A1-117)

Hello guys ... atttu

My name is Pascal and Svl7 I need you.

I upgraded my ASUS G73JH 7970M card Clevo ..

It all works fine I just have a problem with the power ...

When does the i7-940XM at most, the HD 7970M card does not work 100% utilization.

I need to decrease the Voltage.

Currently I have 850 * 1200 Voltage 1:00 Clevo VBIOS for HM series.

Svl7 edit my Clevo VBIOS version HM creating three different types of VBIOS?

one with 0.975 ... one with 0.95 ... Whereas it must always run stable 850MHz 1200MHz * ....

Thanks in advance Svl7 and to all of you ...

the link of my Clevo VBIOS to change:

I used the Dell7970m-900-1300-ov1075v.ROM

I then edited the same ROM to run clocks at 1000 / 1450.

I can't seem to get any higher without crashing when playing games.

Got a run at 1070 / 1500 just now using 1.1v:

7786 Overall

hi, i have simple solution for screen flicker, step one - in MSIAfterburner file put UnofficialOverclockingMode = 2 , step 2 in ccc enable LCD overdrive and set it to max

---

you right, i just try it once with flashing bios in my MB and guess what?!

---

i have 015.022.000.001 bios version on R4, do you think its good idea (and if its safe) to try flash it ?

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.

      Well everyone...I have a confession to make-I flashed svl7 modified 970m vbios before I wiped my drivers! Everything seemed to run fine, I could game but noticed my clocks fluctuating a bit crazy. Figured I'd try a OC profile in afterburner while running a 27 27 26 26 clock in TS a bit stupid I know. Well 3d mark froze so I did a reboot...Black Screen on startup I heard windows boot so I feared I bricked my card. Tried external monitor..works fine. This is where my stupidity really hit the cosmos. I had another m15x 900p LCD laying around plugged that in. Worked fine back too overclocking bro! Well same thing happened. My profile was not overly crazy as I can remember. But I bricked another screen. Plugged in external monitor everything fine. I was using latest nvidia drivers 436.48 I believe. So I wiped drivers using DDU. Reflashed to stock clevo bios. Tried both LCD again still nothing. Installed old 7970m still nothing. Cleared CMos again nope. Reinstalled 970m with svl7 vbios with newest driver and been gaming on my external monitor. Have done some OC with inspector. Everything seems to work as it should. Temps and performance are great. Did I brick my monitors??? Never heard of this problem.

      Hello guys,
      I have a GT72VR 6RE with G-sync MSI Laptop. Sadly the GPU is partially dead (artefacts all over the screen, crashes, windows detecting a damaged hardware etc...).

      So I bought an other GTX1070 MXM on ebay, which was used in a Vortex G65 6RE before.
      Sadly, when I plug the new GPU in the laptop, the laptop screen stays completly off, but i can use the HDMI port. So i though that I would just have to flash the vbios to the one I was using on the GPU that died, but I couldn't because of a mismatch betwen the PCI Device ID.
      The new GPU ID is : 10DE 1BA1 - 1462 11AF and the previous GPU ID was :10DE 1BE1 - 1462 11AF
      Pretty close right? but the A1 and E1 variation are fcking everything up. I've read that 1BA1 is for non G-sync and 1BE1 is for G-sync. I've also read that the G-sync variation is not part of the card but is an external part no on the GPU board.

      So now I'm wondering what can I do : is there a way to force the vbios flash or to change the PCI ID ? I really need some help here. I'm no expert and I've try as much as I could. Maybe I need to do some vbios editing but I don't really know how to do it and what to do exactly to make this work.

      Thank you very much for your help guys

      With AMD's long awaited Navi release, do you plan to purchase the 5700/XT?
