[GTX 590] Flashing & Overclocking Thread - Page 30

post #291 of 721
Hi guys,
I got asus gtx 590. Is it necessary to update my bios?
I don't plan to overclock right now. I plan to OC when I have enough infos.
Btw, my current voltage is set to 925 in msi afterburner. Is this normal?

I also updated my bio that was provided from asus official website. Bio was from March, 2011.

Edit: How can i unlock my fan speed to 100% it doesnt go higher than 95%
If you look on the first page of this thread, RagingCain has posted unlocked BIOSes for (almost) all brands of card.

I must admit that does sound like a bottleneck - are you able to OC your chip by maybe just 200MHz and record the differences?

It may sound like a silly question, but where did you buy them from?

There's no real need for to flash a custom BIOS unless you want any of the following;

- Unlocked Fan Speed (100%)
- Increased Minimum Voltage
- Increased Maximum Voltage

0.925v is normal, most cards run this across both GPUs as standard, but some (such as EVGA) run core 2 on a retarded voltage of 0.913v.

If you're not going to overclock the card, then you don't need to change the BIOSes biggrin.gif

Smo, had to notice, i've got info on palit, that have 0.913/0.925v, so there is another vendor with such problems.

also owner of that palit tried to flash palit specials (both standart special and wogga's specials) and have no success with this. i've got impression that it is some kind of new revision. atleast new bios revision, because mine was bought in may and this new week ago. next week i'll install second 590 that could be new too and will see if thats true. other problem with this "new" cards is that they throttle and unstable on any voltages above 0.975 even on 630MHz.

Interesting - do you know why the BIOS flashes failed?

I'm not sure about this new revision just yet (if they will bother, with Kepler so close), but a revised BIOS is definitely possible.

The last thing you mentioned makes me extremely nervous.

so am i! it would be knife right in my heart if 2nd 590 will suck
bios failed to flash..because of wrong device id o_O
checked again - he flashed but having BSODs above 650MHz
i cant believe that its just fail unlucky GPU

also, could be interesting, one guy said that his MSi become better after flashing EVGA HC BIOS (RC's ones) - 710@0.975v instead of 730@1.0v =D

Alright guys, I am going to have sometime on Saturday, IF YOU WANT ANY BIOSES: NOW is the time to submit them, I know some of you have gotten "ignored" by me, and I want to spoil you all.

Submit anything I have missed lately as of now, otherwise I will definitely not find them all and I have a finite time frame, so help me out by reposting them.

It's neat and unexpected to see ya here. I assumed you'd get another 6990 tongue.gif

Glad to see you're giving green a shot! These cards are tough nuts to crack, but sometimes a challenge is much more entertaining than a cakewalk.

Well I am really sensitive to noise and my first 6990 had coil whining sound that really bothered me, so I had to return it. My 6950CF ref unlocked to 6970 bios, gave me very good performance, but it was too hot and loud frown.gif
I really like how gtx 590 is quiete compared to my previous set up and perform great. I might not actually bother to OC higher than stock because it's quiet and fast already smile.gif Very happy with gtx 590.

Alwight back on the case :-)
From prev thread, I have an EvGA 590 HC (european) & an EVGA Classified (US) version on a waterblock. Only concern was flashing the bios on cards from different regions, If you could check to see if I'll be ok (due to warranty etc if anything does go wrong). Also let me know which of the latest drivers to use once you give this a heads up

files are http://www.mediafire.com/?7eiygt6x07xi2
