    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

    UPDATE.

    Q. Will it fix it ?
    A. No.

    And for future info, do not flash the BIOS from GPU 1 to GPU 2

    Windows thinks they are the same card and goes mental
