I think the club is still relevant since we have a lot of members with cards out there. Also we have a new vbios that we are experimenting with that might revitalize this card.

Ooh. Links or info about this vbios?

As far as I understand, you use a custom bios to unlock the voltage, higher voltage equals higher overclocked core and memory?
If that's the case, that'd be great, because right now, I have Core +50 & +175 Memory, anything past that and my card completely crashes.

You might be clocking your memory too high. With my memory set to +100 or so, I can get the core to +100. Stable, runs at full load all day.

Thanks. What benefits does it give exactly? I know about the UEFI BIOS and the fast-boot for Windows 8.

Hi Proxish,

You are right about the vbios info you mentioned in your post above. the only thing is holding me back on the 690 vbios is the voltage control. even when I unlocked the voltage to pass the 1.75v on the bios. the Precision x Or MSI Afterburner won't let it to be raise some how.
I know a couple of GPU brand has this issue. like Gigabyte and Asus. on the 760 family 770 and some 600's family GPU. I have been tested the vBios on a Gigabyte brand. I have not tested the vBios in any other brand.

one a side note, the 690 GPU has the bios tied to the first and second GPU in the pcb, so in other the bios to be flash it does need to be extract from each GPU, cuz it does have a bios 1 and 2.

If you are willin to help to develop the vBios please save your both bios and pm it to me along with GPU brand, I hope I could work with EVGA brand seems like more friendly to debug everything.

can you save you both stock bios zip it and send to me please? add the GPU brand too. because not all the company has the CERT bios in it. most uses Nvidia stock bios shipped to the company, they don't even touch the bios only makes the GPU,flash the Nvidia bios and send to the store to be sold.

Can't get my BIOS to save with GPU-Z or nvflash, presumably because it's not unlocked. So unless you know of another way (without unlocking), I'll have to disappoint you. redface.gif

EDIT: Weird, I can get the BIOS from GPU 2 to save, but not GPU 1 (says BIOS reading not supported). So here's GPU 2's BIOS if it helps. thumb.gif GK104.zip 56k .zip file

I'd be interested to help you develop the Bios mod.
But a couple of problems.
I'm on a stock cooler, hitting 82c-83c when gaming and I have an Asus card, which still has two years left on the warranty.
If I bios mod it, does that not invalidate the warranty?

Oh, and thanks GoneTomorrow, I'll try overclocking the card again, GPU Boost Clock first with a Power Target of 135, and see how high I can go before the whole thing just dies on me.

you must disable the EEprom security in order to save the bios. if you have a PLX chip it may interfere the process. see the example below

open nvflash and type

nvflash --display
i you have PLX chip it will display like this for example, this is mobo with 3 titan and two PLX chip reported.
7a648d15_7cc6f73e_ezflash.png

the GPU count start from 0 to 8 so

PLX chip always show's first "0" so
nvflash --display
0 - GPU 1
1 - GPU 2
2 - GPU 3
3 - GPU 4
by your sig you have one 690 if you have a PLX chip you must skip the GPU order and find the right # to disable eeprom
by type

nvflash --protectoff
it will ask what chip you want to disable you type any number from the menu that are not the PLX chip. repeat the process for the second GPU into your 690.

it will void the warranty when you flash the gpu with any modded vBios, but after you flash back to stock bios your warranty come back and if you need to RMA your GPU one day you fine. but if you are not familiar with flashing bios i recommend you to not do anything. read a bit how it how before you try to flash , in my sig are link for the GTX 780 thread in OP are some guide how to flash.

I've flashed a 660 Sli setup before, so I would know roughly what I was doing.
What kind of performance boost, temperature boost would we be looking at with a new bios?

EDIT: Just redid my overclock and got a max of 1257 / 3154 at 83c.
