Wait, how are you guys undervolting with MSI Afterburner?  My voltage slider is blank... is there some option/setting I have to turn on or something?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Go to settings, and unlock voltage control.

If that doesn't work, your BIOS is voltage locked.

Thanks, I'll try that when I get home, though I'm afraid it's the case of the latter.

And what do I need to do then??

I have:
1 PowerColor HD 7850 (AX7850 2GBD5-DH) with 85.3% ASIC quality
1 XFX R7970 DD (FX-797A-TDFC) with 68.6% ASIC quality

How to unlock the voltage control?

Thanks!

OR you can skip freedos and get ATIwinflash instead.

ATIflash (dos version)
Important, so you don't flash the wrong card/bios (not necessary for winflash.)

I used the command: "atiflash.exe -p 1 xxxx.rom -f " to flash my second card.  This was all that was needed for a Sapphire 7950.  Be sure to do atiflash.exe -i OR -ai to get adapter information to be sure you are flashing the correct card.
