    try disassembling your gpu, after disassembled remove the battery to the motherboard and the battery left the power button pressed for about 30 seconds, then install the gpu and put the battery of the moterboard and battery, turn on the power and turn on. Was there any type of interruption in the update of your bios?

    Temp max around 79-80C, I run undervolted with a voltage of 0.975V and elevate the back of the computer for better airflow. Usually temps are in the 75-76 range. 87 is too high.

    greetings I am in the process of creating a dual psu 240 watts, you would recommend that bios that you published in your hd 8970m to use them 100%
