Good luck with getting it stable, just watch temps. I bricked one 450 already because i pushed it to 96c for like an hour and after that it never worked right, even after baking (driver crashes on 2 fresh PC's, artifacting, random downclockings, Folding@Home/BOINC errors)

i got 1 minute of furmark and 60C plus display driver not responding -.-

Everything you need can be found using our forums search function.

Dont doubt it, dont question it, dont look at it.

Just use it. This place is DEEEEP.

I remember when i first got my gts 450, the effort i put into overclocking. I got it up to 1000 core with 1.12V.

It was only stable with nvidia's 260.99 drivers.

I just linked you to a tutorial on flashing the bios...

I'd say if you do not want to take the risk (you can brick your card if you flash BIOS incorrectly) just stick to the stock voltages. Getting it to 950 MHz stable isn't so bad, and the difference to 1 GHz won't be that noticeable.

Yea but 1Ghz would be an accomplishment because a gts 450 isnt a very high end card, 120$ =)

There are not many GTS 450's known to reach 1 GHz, the GTX 550 Ti would be a better option for that (it's even clocked by default at 900 MHz). Hell, even some GTX 560 Ti's can reach 1 GHz. Upgrading a 450 for a 550 would be a waste of money tho. You'd do better spending the same amount of money on a good GTX 460.

Original GF100-based chips hotter and are not as optimized as GF110-series chipsets. That's why a GTX 580 consumes less power and emits less heat than a less powerful GTX 480, and a 560 Ti can clock higher than a GTX 460 with less shaders.

It's very easy, I did it myself for the first time previous week tongue.gif (offcourse via the help of this forum wink.gif)

Any chance you speak Dutch? (I saved it for myself in a Word-file wink.gif) If so I'll email it to ya!

Anyway here's howto:

To flash your Graphics Card BIOS you'll need:
GPU-Z
Nibitor
NvFlash

Open GPU-Z and click the icon with the chip marked with a green arrow (next to BIOS Version on the right)
Click Save to File and leave the name and save it on your Desktop (KEEP THIS FILE if things go wrong...)
Open that file in Nibitor
When opened, check if the Integrity is GREEN (RED is not good)
Click Tools and Fermi Voltage (Your card is Fermi right??? tongue.gif)
Choose highest available voltage in pull-down menu next to Limit
Click Apply
Click File and Save BIOS and give it the name mod.rom (just mod is enough because it adds .rom itself and otherwise you'll have mod.rom.rom biggrin.gif)
Save this file into your C:\ (makes it easier to flash in DOS)
Now copy/paste everything from the nvflash map into C:\ (also easier in DOS)

What comes now is the excually flashing! Do this 1 card at the time until it is finished, and then do second/third/... cards
Click Start and RUN. Typ CMD and Right Click on it and run as Administrator (Dos opens now)
1) Type now: cd/ (it brings you to c:\)
2) Type now: nvflash -b backup.rom (this creates a final backup of your BIOS)
3) Type now: nvflash -4 -5 -6 mod.rom (this is the flashing!)
If you can't flash it (Write protected) Type now: nvflash -r (removes the protection) and redo step 3
You MUST reboot the PC to take effect...

Don't blame me if ANYTHING goes wrong or if the Card melts because of you putting to much Voltage on it wink.gif
