Default Re: Basic FX59xxx bios changes

From reading these threads this seems to be the only mod I want to do to the 5950 bios. Is it ok to just adjust the latency values and nothing else? Or must I adjust another value?


if you are happy to run your card at the 300/475/950 speeds of a 5950u then yes only change the latency of "43" to "40". You will gain a bit more performance, and by keeping to the standard 5950u speeds, you shouldn't have any overtemping/overstressing problems ?
