What are you guys with the old BIOS reading in Afterburner? Both of mine say 1.306v max, and I have one from Day 1 and one that was sent to me as a replacement last week.

You need this file: USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide

To copy VGA bios:
Open folder "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide"

Open folder "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" See SP27213.exe

Instal to your PC. It will instal itself in a folder called "USBDriveFormatTool". Open it.

Have a flash drive plugged in ready to use. Click on HPUSBFW.EXE

Choose "Create a DOS startup disk" using files found by browsing to your "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide" folder. Select "USB image w7" and Start. This takes ages.

Then;

Copy "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide/nvflash" folder contents to the usb

Restart and in motherboard bios make the usb drive the first in your boot order list.

It will say Windows Millenium and below that c: prompt

Type c:nvflash -b backup.rom

That makes a copy of yr vga rom.



To install bios:

Enter bios. Set to start on USB.

Just type nvflash (biosname).rom and if there is protection that stops you then try again with nvflash -4 -5 -6 (biosname).rom

Nvflash will recognise the bioses one at a time and ask for a y for yes prompt to continue.

When all bios are flashed, restart, enter bios, reset boot order to HDD first, save and reboot.

Just ordered a multimeter and I will check mine.
I know I am benefiting from the voltage increase because going from +90 core to + 160 core would not be possible.
Very happy with my card as I never planned on Water cooling it anyway.

Yeah, i'll check again when I get back home but I know my overclock results jumped by 50mhz with nothing else changing...there's definitely more voltage being fed, but I will double check this evening.

Is it possible to boot a DOS install off of a USB drive? If so, then we should be able to do it there.
