  1. i set mine to these specs when i saw them and they have been working for me!

    if you want to change voltage i use msi afterburner and under settings you have to enable voltage changes.
  2. my voltage is locked I used Mai after burner and tried to unlock it but it stayed grey. I've heard my card has an unsupported voltage regulator.
  3. try flashing it to a 6870 using winflash.
  4. I downloaded easy boost from gigabyte and it has the option to flash so I'll use that. I've have some questions.

    1 will flashing make my card get recognized as a 6870
    2 will. I reach 6870 clocks
    3 are you sure it will unlock the voltage
  5. mine is still recognized as a 6850 on benchmarks and such. all it does is unlock the voltage and set it at stock 6870 speeds. 950/1250 i think
  6. were can you get the 6870 bios
  7. never mind i tried it you cant flash it . this is the crappiest 6850 ever made.
