XFX produced at least 6 different HD 4650 1GB DDR2 PCIe cards & all run the GPU core at 600MHz except one - that one runs at 650MHz. And all run the memory at 500MHz (1000MHz DDR) except for one - that one runs at 400MHz (800MHz DDR).

Here comes the negativity - the HD 4650 is a decent lower end gaming card but you should have gotten the GDDR3/DDR3 version, not DDR2. The DDR3 version runs the memory at 650-700MHz (1300-1400MHz DDR), depending on the manufacturer. If you look at the Graphics Hierarchy Chart at Tom's Hardware, there's a 3 tier difference between the 2 versions, that's fairly significant. How about reflashing to the original BIOS, selling the card, then buying something with a little more balls?

Anyhow, why are you flashing the BIOS to overclock when you can use an overclock program such as ATITool, AMD GPU Tool, or Sapphire TriXX??

BTW, how do you break RAM?

"1 gb ram(other 1 gb broken now)"

I repeat: how do you break RAM?

"im in 8th so a lot to study"

I knew you were a kid but didn't think you were that young.

"im falshing cuz i need to volt mod"

You don't have to flash to do that. Read up on TriXX.

Flash the BIOS once too many times and the card may quit working entirely.

"i've flashed over 10 times now"

Why on earth would you do that? Stick to software overclocking, it's much safer. And remember the old saying, "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear". For whatever reason, you bought the lower end DDR2 version of the HD 4650, so you got what you paid for. And hopefully you didn't pay more than $50? Here's the DDR3 version for just $30 after rebate:

And here's the much better HD 5570 for $50 after rebate:

"the ram fell on the floor"

Dropping a stick of RAM shouldn't damage it. Did you test it with memtest86?

RAM is pretty hardy, as mickliq said, the RAM most likely won't be damaged at all, I've done it before, and it still works fine.

Ask and Answer. The way of learning.

"i cant voltmod with software"

Whatever. It's your card. Hopefully you've already begun saving up for the next one because I don't think this one is going to live a long life.
