then i try few other till point of view bios and i can hit 490/900 stable and score around 5500 in 3dmark03. i have tried 490/850, 490/870,490/880, tol 490/900 and the 3dmark03 score is increase untill when i hit memory to 910. the 3dmark03 mark drop to 5000. so i assume 490/900 is my card max speed.
here come the question, why when i flash the chinatech mod bios 480/850. i can score 3dmark03 around 5500 which equal pov 490/900 score??
first thing I would check is if both these bios's have latency mod at "40" ? All my moded bios's are not set this way, a lot probably are with latency at "43". Bios modding was a developing procedure and only when I was sure of benefits to all potential users did I start introducing appropriate bios changes ! The Aopen bios, being one of the first, is definately set at "43" !
so which modified bios's are you testing with ?
