Considering the difficulty in obtaining a replacement I wouldn't risk it.

There is no need to flash it.

You can softmod it with MorePowerTools, using the XT version of the bios file of your card.

The only thing is that you have to reapply the XT Bios after each driver update, and reboot. So it's an extra step after every driver update. But there is that safety of not bricking the 5700 doing a flash.

I do this with my Gigabyte 5700 Gaming OC.

O/C to 1979mhz (2010mhz boost limit). With an 1100mv undervolt. Power Limit +50% (max, this doesn't hurt anything). Custom fan curve that maxes out at 55%. Avg Max temp Hotspot is 85 degrees.

totally not worth it.

I found that these settings are the best for me:

i tried normal overclocking man it adds 1-2% preformance its not worth it right?...have u tried flashing?

i tried flashing. my 5700 became hot AF even on default settings.

1-2% performance boost? are you sure u are OC and UV your 5700 correctly? i have like at least 15-20% more fps in some games
