HiveOS farm flashing function working properly?


New here. HiveOS works great and I’m glad I took the step and changed OS. It’s almost too good to be true :slight_smile: I’d like to say thanks to all the guys behind it.

There is one(million) thing(s) I don’t understand though.
I played around and undervolted, overclocked and felt like a hero. Low Watt consumption and quite fast hash rates. Problem was, my effective hashrate was actually quite bad. It turns out I had a lot of incorrect shares which made my rig spend ridiculous amount of time on each share and after 2,5 hours I was only at share count 45! So… I stopped the miner and flashed the cards using my backup BIOS ROMs. I removed the OC profile and restarted. Things went back to normal, low speed and so on.

The strange thing is that now when I now run e. g. amd-info or amdcovc I can see my old clock and Volt values! Isn’t that really strange? (below in bold)

Shouldn’t they have been overwritten in the bios flash process? I can confirm the cards are stock because of the hashrate and powerconsumption.

Anyone else had this?
