that is what im going to do, post here all my modded bios files for free , just give me a few days till i uploading them , link them , for your . I worked on each one for days sometimes for weeks till i got them stable , i have around 25-30 different modded bios files for rx470/480 8GB cards . Do you prefer optimized bios files for ETH mining , XMR , Zcash or any other coins mining ? Would you like a modded silent bios , or modded gaming bios files ?

I didn't know it was that big of a deal. I've seen many other forums where people are posting their rom files. How about instead of trolling you just move along and leave those of us that are willing to help one another mod their GPU's.

I WAS A LITTLE BIT SARCASTIC when i replied to the op post , but there was a reason why , you can read below

The problem is , a lot of ppl got "help" , but on the wrong way .

Modding bios files is more than just copy and paste mem straps ... Yes you can get copy/paste mem strap modded bios files from all over the internet , then you going to come back to this forum and asking questions like , why one (or few) of my cards hashrate is dropping from 28 to 20MH/s , why my rig is not stable , why my pool side reported hash rate is much lower what im seeing on my computer  , or just a few topic back : " I have try to use different modded bios but after few minutes of dual mining the computer crash with no particular error on log" ...etc

If you have successfully modded your GPU BIOS please post the Make and Model of your GPU and a URL to your moddem *.rom file here.

Happy Mining!!!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

You not even know how to ask this question Smiley the most important when you are talking about modded bios is the bios version number. The same make/Model card can have different bios version , most of the time those bios files are not interchangeable ! in some case yes !

I received a lot of PM , members asking me to provide REAL MODDED BIOS files for they VGA cards , optimized for ETH/Zcash/XMR ...etc
BUT when im asking them about they current bios version number , or silent/gaming bios ,  i got back a pm right away , Where , How can i find the bios version number for the card or what is the silent bios ? If you dont know how or where , then before you going into the "modding bios movement" , you should do more research on your own , then asking question . This way you can get real help !

There is a reason why you not going to get a list of modded bios file. The members who know a little bit about modding bios files want to make sure , newbies not going to screw up they vga cards , just bc they find a modded bios file , downloaded and flashed to they card , without know they bios version number , without they even know what bios they going to flash ( silent / gaming )

savage

 Grin !!a lot of VGA cards going to be " savage " if members , newbies starting to flash they cards with the wrong bios version file !!  Grin



Summary:
- ppl calling modded bios just bc they paste/copy mem straps . That is ok , those bios files are not optimized to nothing  , but going to give you higher reported hash rate , and probably much lower real hash rate on the pool side ,higher power consumption ,  your max gpu fq overclock will be much lower . You always should check the vga cards for memory error...
- If you flashing your card make sure you get the right bios version number , or you going to have some problem or you can brick your cards ...
- Real modded bios files are optimized for different coins , with max hash rate / low power consumption , what working great with ETH , probably going to give you real trouble for zcash or xmr
- ASIC quality have effect on tuned , modded bios files , so if a modded bios is working fine on my 92% ASIC quality card , might give you trouble on your 62% ASIC quality card from the same manufacturer  with the same model , bios number .

Another great example ....
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1912479.0


I am looking for the stock bios for the ASUS Dual RX480 4GB with Flash type GD25Q21B.

I have tried the 4 bios that I can find on techpowerup.com that matches the cards specs.
The cards specs are
GPU Clock:   1266 MHz
Memory Clock:   1750 MHz

It did not cross my mind when I received my order of 6 ASUS Dual RX480 4Gb cards that they might not be the same.

So I saved one of the bios and edited it for timing and flashed it to all 6. It is then that is discovered i made a mistake.

adapter bn dn fn dID       asic           flash      romsize test    bios p/n   
======= == == == ==== =============== ============== ======= ==== ==============
   0    01 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q41B         80000 pass 115-D000PI0-100
   1    02 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q21B         40000 pass 115-D000PI0-100
   2    03 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q41B         80000 pass 115-D000PI0-100
   3    04 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q21B         40000 pass 115-D000PI0-100
   4    05 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q21B         40000 pass 115-D000PI0-100
   5    09 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q21B         40000 pass 115-D000PI0-100
   6    0A 00 00 67DF Polaris10       GD25Q21B         40000 pass 115-D000PI0-100


only the following does not result in restarts when i flash them to the GD25Q21B.
ASUS RX480 4GB 67DFHB.15.50.0.0.AS24.rom
ASUS RX480 4GB 67DFHB.15.50.0.0.AS28.rom


the two flash type GD25Q41B can be strapped and overclocked with bios AS28.rom I get a nice 28Mhs and they can run any algorithm.

the other 4 with fash type GD25Q21B only runs at stock settings. no tweaking of memory speed or timing changes has any positive result with bios 24 or 28.

So I am thinking that maybe I don't have the right bios? Any help would be nice. ASUS support is not willing to provide any information at all.

I have Red Dragon Powercolor 8GB 480 GPU (Samsung memory). I have exactly the symptoms you described in your post xD I just copied mem timings (noob I know).
If you will not post bios for this card can you please teach me how to mod them properly? Please senpai.


Tnx

See  I get where you are coming from  hard work  should pay off  why give it away for free.

I say give it away for free.   WTF are you talking about phil?

My supposition is:
AMD
NVIDIA
INTEL
Asus
Asrock
MSI
GIGABYTE
BIOSTAR
EVGA
DELL
HPRODUCTS
LENOVO
MSI
SUPERMICRO
WESTERN DIGIAL
FOXCONN
ZOTAC
SAPPHIRE TECH
VISIONTEK
POWERCOLOR
PNY TECHOLOGIES
DIAMOND
G.SKILL
CORSAIR
HYPERX
CRUCIAL
MUSHKIN
SEASONIC
ANTEC

are just some of the companies that want gpu mining to thrive. All of the above and more can afford to pump gpu coins for sales of their gear.

the biggest push against them is cheap easy asics.

but guys like you and this includes anyone  that discourages new gpu miners fail to see this.

I say the more the miners the  merrier. We need to welcome and encourage GPU mining.

@ Valiant Thor   my great uncle was ThorLief  and while I personally never flash any cards I can give you some advice look at nvidia cards and leave the world of AMD

My thread shows why I switch from AMD to nvidia and no longer have that  many amd cards

nothing wrong with the new gpu miners, no one discourages them , the problem is with those idiots who posting they "modded" bios and telling everyone to use it , but they have no idea about the bios version number. members flashing they cards with the wrong bios , then asking for help , omg my card not hashing , windows not recognizing my cards after flash ,  i forget to save my original bios , i not even know what was the original version number , could someone post the original bios for XXX. cards , why one (or few) of my cards hashrate is dropping from 28 to 20MH/s , why my rig is not stable , why my pool side reported hash rate is much lower what im seeing on my computer  , I have try to use different modded bios but after few minutes of dual mining the computer crash with no particular error on log ...ect


You have a stable modded bios if your rig running stable for days, weeks , without any restart , your reported hashrate is very close to the pool side 24 hours average effective hashrate. If there is a big different between reported hashrate and pool side 24 average effective hash rate , you are wasting money and energy Smiley you might gain a few extra MH/s , but your power consumption going to be much higher .

I sent bios file for some members before who asked for it , i asked them please give me a feedback , tell me about your asic quality , power draw , how stable is the modded bios file ... Guess what ... never got any feedback from no one Smiley So I stopped to give away free modded , optimized bios files  , just like anyone else on this forum. But ! i never sold any of my modded bios file for any money , coins ...

My priority always was creating a modded bios file , with higher hashrate than stock, lower power draw than stock ( real power draw at the wall ).
All my rigs are running stable ... But dont think this is a 5 minutes copy/paste bios mods Smiley
