That means you are overclocking it too much. Dual BIOS means that if you somehow screw up the card BIOS, you can use the other one to restore your card back to normal.

The button located near the CrossFire connectors switches between two BIOSes on the card. On other HD 7900 Series cards, this dual BIOS feature only acts as a safeguard against problems during BIOS flashing. On the Sapphire Vapor-X, this feature has been extended to provide a BIOS that runs clocks beyond Sapphire's default clock for the HD 7950without any voltage changes, which will help keep power consumption in check.

OK looks Like I had to enable the Boost by pressing bios button, then I was able to overclock more
