Is it possible to flash GTX 560 TI (OEM) to retail version of the card

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, my first post here so apologies if this is the wrong thread! I guess the title of the post says it all really. I have recently purchased an alienware computer from Dell but the version of the GTX 560 TI card that I have received is the OEM version (obviously because I purchased from an OEM lol).

I was wondering if it is at all possible to flash this card to a retail version (since the OEM version is severely underclocked and the core clock comes at 732 Mhz as standard).

If anyone has any experience with this at all then please feel free to supply any info.

Thanks Guys,

Andy

This may be a bit off-topic, but if the card is undercloked, then the cooling system might be undersized, too. If you haven't already done so, I suggest before flashing the card to check if it can actually run at the stock clocks of a retail 560Ti. Most likely it can, but once you're sure you can use a soft like Nibitor and modify your own BIOS to the new clocks and flash it back on, more on mvktech.net (makers of Nibitor and other niceties)

Thanks for the reply, I can only assume that I have adequate cooling capabilities and would be dissapointed if I didnt (since its an alienware desktop built for gaming.)

The Fan sitting on the card never rises above 50 % currently and I have managed to overclock the card to 840 Mhz (anything above I believe will require an increase voltage)

If I have missed something, do you have any other tips of how I could asses the coolilng capabilities of my system. Also have you ever flashed a card yourself? Judging by your response I need to modify my bios, change the card settings and then flash it. (I will take a look at the links provided also smile.gif )

840 without increasing voltage? what is the voltage at stock? do you have afterburner or precision installed? do you know your GPU temps?

once you do, you can try upping the voltage. try for 1ghz wink.gif but keep it under 90 degrees while under FULL load (meaning not just playing a game)

also, you will get flack for buying alienware. and i agree with the flackers.

I do have afterburner but I think because my card is an OEM version, I am not able to access the voltage control. I have tried ALL the methods sugested by peoiple. Unlcoked in settings, Set the unofficial overclocking to 1 and also set the EULA to the suggested text.

I think its more hardware related and the fact I have an OEM card. This is the whole reason I am looking to flash the card, so I can have access to the voltage to give me a little extra. I imagine the voltage at the moment is relatively low, the core clock came at 732 Mhz out of the box (very underclocked).

The GPU temp is never 90. it will sit around 80% and that's only using 50% of the fan. If I take manual control of the fan and set it to 75% then the card will happily run at 75 degrees (while playing BF3 on Ultra)

As for buying Alienware, I would have built my own and saved money but unfortunately for me, time is more of an issue and therefore I just purchased one! smile.gif

hi, I got the same card. Did you manage to flash it already?

Why do you need to change the bios when you can just oc it?

Because he wants to clock it even a bit higher, than it already is. But at arround 420-430MHz the card becomes instable at the default voltage.
Im in the exact same situation.,

Any updates to this?
From what I've read, this card appears to be a crippled GTX 570. ie 1.25gb ram on a 320 bit bus.

Yeah in a german board, someone showed a screenshot of a flashed 560ti (oem)

No shaders could be unlocked. But the OC potential of the card is quite good.
