If you are a novice miner, you have to understand that wrong flashing of your card will lead to the failure of your device. Everything that you do with mining equipment, you do at your own risk and under your personal responsibility. Before starting work, you should save the BIOS of your video card and only after that continue. Some models of AMD RX 5600xt/5700/5700xt video cards come with the BIOS blocked from modification, and if such BIOS is flashed, you get a video card with failures. In the case of 5600xt, users found a way out in the video cards of the unlocked BIOS from MSI/Powercolor and downgrading the BIOS version in the case of the 5700/5700xt. Moreover, some users might have issues with excessive power consumption and card instability. You can easily unlock the original BIOS of these card models using the Red BIOS Editor. Let’s see how the program works on the example of Gigabyte RX 5600xt with a locked BIOS.
First, you need to download the original BIOS from your video card. If you bought video cards with the non-original BIOS, you can look for the original BIOS on the manufacturer’s website. Be sure to save the original BIOS from the video card you will be working with.
After that, you go to the Red BIOS Editor website and download the latest version of Red BIOS Editor. You should save and run it in the place you need. Then you launch the Red BIOS Editor and open the pre-downloaded original BIOS from your video card in it.
Now you have an unlock button in the main menu. It appears only if the program has recognized that the BIOS is locked. In addition, the new Red BIOS Editor has the ability to edit voltage tables with offset VRM controllers. Then you replace the timings you need on the original video card and save this BIOS in the place you need.
Further, you flash cards. You go into overclocking, press flash BIOS and find the file that you just saved. Select the video cards you want and click flash BIOS. After that you wait for it to flash and reboot the rig. You fill in all the settings you need for the core, voltage on the core, controller memory, and so on. Everything you need to write down, apply and see what happens. At a distance, you look a little and if everything is fine, then you flash all the other cards.
Red BIOS Editor is a utility that allows you to increase or decrease frequencies, as well as adjust various characteristics of video cards. Unlike other programs, Red BIOS Editor modifies the specific BIOS of the video card. Although flashing the BIOS involves some risk, this method has undeniable advantages. There is no need to run various overclocking utilities at Windows startup.
The program has a great number of features. It can display and modify many information strings within the BIOS file, including device ID and vendor ID. You get an access to each PowerPlay state and can change the GPU clock, RAM clock and voltage for each separately. Red BIOS Editor displays the PowerPlay structure in the BIOS. The utility displays the voltages that the card can use. It can very conveniently graphically display and modify four different fan controllers and automatically detect which controller is used for the particular BIOS. RBE modifies the BIOS overdrive signature to provide a higher overclocking headroom. It can also extract and save signatures to a file. Red BIOS Editor provides excellent PowerPlay. It contains a profile editor to access the hidden features of the CCC panel. Another feature is to retrieve and flash all BIOS from RBE using the built-in WinFlash interface.
