sorry, I can't offer assistance, but I do have a question:

Why did you flash to the Ghz edition bios to begin with? and if you saw any performance difference that couldn't be achieved through conventionally overclocking. at least on paper, flashing the Bios to GHz edition doesn't actually unlock anything on the card

hi man it unlocked clocks from 925 to 1050 and add also power boost which is 1000 to 1050 but after some day is starting to have small movment frizings in games like black ops 2 and battelfield i mean small frizings,from there i figure that i have some bios conflict maybe and i was trayed to reflash to original bios but no luck
you now is to late to go back and i am a little woried about how i will reflash this bios to original
i think evveryday the frizings are worse and worse.when i swich to original bios also frizings and also in ghz bios mode also the same thing.
men i am woried how to reflash this ghz bios to original
i alwredy have a nootable usb and in there original bios and atiflash but when i try in prompt command to type atiflash-f0 ghzbios.rom i got bad file invalid message.

well, sorry I can't help, best of luck flashing it back man!

oh and for future reference, I'm running my regular 7970 at 1100MHz stable. just overclocking normally is fine once you get it back to the old BIOS!

no need to flash bios.just normally oc the card. if you need more voltage manually do it as well. i heard that the ghz ediotion were using slightly different silicon than normal 7970. if that's the case then it might explain the problem you're having

one thought:

I just remembered most Tahiti cards came with two BIOS, a main one and a backup. there is a tiny switch to go back and forth next to the crossfire fingers. I'm hoping you haven't messed with the backup BIOS?
