Flashing GTX 570 BIOS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey, all.

My Gigabyte GTX 570 is a little temperamental at times, especially when overclocking.

So, I was thinking of flashing the bios to the Super Overclock Edition, as I'm currently running the standard Overclock Edition.

Question and point of this post really is; How do I go about doing it? Is it a good idea? And, well, any other tips or opinions people may have.

Thanks all.

The main reason why I do it is so I don't have to start Afterburner (insert GPU OC software of choice) everytime I start Windows. Other people do it to OC their cards in different OS's that don't have OC software, namely Linux.

I usually use AB to OC to a point where I'm stable, and am comfortable running 24/7. I then edit the bios to those clocks, and flash to GPU. If you want to just flash the Super Overclock bios that would be even easier, just d/l that, and flash as is. If you do dl a bios off the internet, make sure you do md5 checksum on it to verify the integrity of the file.

It's a pretty easy process really. You just need to download the latest nvflash for windows, and you can do it right from the cmd prompt.

I usually extract nvflash to c:\nvflash to make it easy to nav to, then run:

nvflash -4 -5 -6 nameofbios.rom

Then YES, and y a couple times, and reboot windows.
