GTX470 BIOS Needed

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

So I flashed my Asus GTX465 to a GTX470 a while ago and its has worked great since. The problem is that I have to bump the voltage in order to play games. My guess is that it was a lower binned GTX470. I am getting sick of bumping the voltage every time I want to play.

I was wondering if someone here could make me a bios that is the stock 470 bios with the voltage at 1000.

Try this.

http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/74656/EVGA.GTX470.1280.100416_1.html

I looked at the voltage level's (0.9125 V - 1.0750 V))

Hope it's what you're looking for.

I'd check them for integrity with nibitor first, last time i got a bios from techpowerup I had to DL 5 of them, the first 4 I tried were corrupt.

Any 'stock' 470 BIOS you use is going to leave your VID exactly where it's at, I'm afraid. The 'stock VID' is actually encoded into the chip itself, it's not the bios that 'decides' your voltage ... although there is some sort of interaction between the bios and the encoding.

By this I mean: when you flash to the 470 bios, your 'stock' VID can go down. When I got my cards, the stock VID was at 975mV on the 465 bios, and then when I flashed to a 470 bios, stock VID dropped down to 962mV, at which point it was unstable when gaming. I suspect that's what happened with yours as well.

(Note that this ISN'T because 962mV was hard-coded into the bios I used, it's because the combination of the 470 bios and the chip encoding is interpreted differently by the driver, which arrives at a different voltage than it would if you're running the 465 bios ... in this case, one 'strap' lower ... the voltage straps are at 12.5mV on all Fermis).

It IS, however, possible to manually mod the bios to override this encoding.

Does that all make sense to you?

Anyways ... why don't you use Afterburner, set up a profile with the clocks/volts you want, then check the 'use these clocks on startup' at the bottom left?

It should work perfect.

Alternatively, I could make you this bios you're asking for ... if you asked me super-nice like wink.gif

The clocks on my cards (as you see in my sig) are written into my bios. But it has to be custom-modded, you're not going to find a bios that came off of some other card that's going to do this for you.

Yep makes perfect sense. +1 I knew that my 465 voltage was lower than the 470, I just assumed that was a bios thing. I have been using afterburner or rivatuner to control my voltage at start up.

So the mod, what is your price for this service??

You owe me a rep!

Er ... wait tongue.gif

Nevermind.

This is a stock MSI 470 bios that will make your card run at 1V when in 3d. Clocks are untouched at 607/837. I also bumped up the voltage cap to 1.125V from the stock 1.087V limit.

Don't tell people I did this for you wink.gif
