Question about gtx 580 Bios flashing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok I want to change the maximum voltage to 1.2 on the cards and I found out how to flash the cards and even flashed a 285 gtx just to test how to do it. Now the question I have is since I have gtx 580 sli does it do both cards at once or do I have to do it one at a time ? Is it worth the risk ?

I read these threads and looked around more but nothing mentions doing 1 card at a time or both.

I would personally do one at a time, flash one then take it out and flash the other but you could flash them while both are intact.

Is there a different way to flash both cards at once or its done the same way as flashing one card ?

The nvidia flash program will detect both card and you need to instruct which card to flash. So indeed you are only flashing one card at a time but you do not need to remove the card. I personally only use the command line utility so I can decide which card to flash each time.
