Question Flashing 6850 BIOS to fix VRAM issue ? - 04-21-2012, 19:54 | posts: 4,822 | Location: 127.0.0.1

I fried one of my 6850s and managed to get an RMA

The new 6850 is fine at stock speeds, but crashes the machine and artifacts if I give it any overclock at all

I was just playing RAGE and looked at the MSI AB OSD and look at GPU 2's RAM use



Do you think this could be a BIOS fault ?

Should I flash the BIOS from my working 6850 over this one ?

Whats the chances of it fixing it ?

I can't RMA it again because it works fine when its not overclocked, but even 1MHz OC on the GPU or Memory and it starts crashing
