    It routine update to fix bug/error.
    Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

    Has there been any stability fixes for 7970 cards? I am wondering if it is my board. I have been getting random screen freezes running eyefinity and crossfire/ trifire. I have tried gen 2 in bios with same issue. Clean installed Windows 7 64. I have tried every driver released for 7970. I was wondering if some from asus has tested the motherboard with 7970 crossfire/trifire eyefinty on a reference 7970 card. Single card running eyefinity is fine. I have tried different combinations of cards in crossfire to rule out a bad card. All work fine solo. Just wanted to get some info if this setup has been tested by asus. I would imagine since they sell AMD cards this would be tested.

    These freezes happen while gaming.

    Why do not you write that with OC over 4.6 Gz, the bios 2xxx ask twice the tensions of 1404, and then walled up to 4.9?

    V-core offset +0.005
    VTT = 1.15
    VCCSA = 1.15
    CPUPLL = 1.5

    linx stable.

    Bios 2003/2105 4.7Gz:

    V-core offset +0.025
    VTT = 1.20
    VCCSA = 1.20
    CPUPLL = 1.8

    linx stable.

    Bios 1404 4.9Gz:

    V-core offset +0.035
    VTT = 1.15
    VCCSA = 1.15
    CPUPLL = 1.5
