Gigabyte 450OC 1GB flashing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been given a 450OC..

I have found that it isn't stable at it OCed levels..

But if i use MSI afterburner to lower the clock to stock it works great..

How do i get my hands on a stock BIOS to load onto it so i don't need to rely on MSI afterburner?

Thanks

My 2 cents: the safest way would be to save the current BIOS, edit it (using NiBiTor) to lower clocks and flash it back on. Using other card's BIOS isn't a good idea because the BIOS setup doesn't contain only clock speeds, it also has memory timings and subtimings and other details that are likely very different from card to card.
Go over to mvktech.net for a pretty comprehensive guide.
