Dude, its not evga's fault. All the AIC's knew of nvidia's voltage policy long before the lightning came out. Msi is the one who decided to break the rules while evga abided by them. Jacob has been telling you guys this from the beginning. Its nvidia that is to blame, not evga...

I will never, ever, ever buy an EVGA product.

Ahh, stop it. You're being paranoid and too harsh. There is no evidence of that. I think it has to do with Kepler architecture.

Dang, I'm so glad that I've already got my Lightning 680s. I bought them within a few days of their release, from Amazon. I've got a triple setup, and so if anyone tells me how to suck the BIOS off of them, I'll do it.

Fair enough, you're right, there is no evidence.... the blame lies with nvidia.

I'll concede to that and drop it.

Yeah if anyone can share precise details on whether nvflash requires a DOS boot or not I will try to get my BIOS up.

I am contemplating picking up a second one and hoping I get a old one before they are all gone.

As long as people sitll have the original BIOS circulating we should be good to go...

I don't have MS DOS 6.22 disks so i'm not sure how to get a DOS Boot going to extract the BIOS....i'm 99% sure you can't do it from a DOS window..
