I'm not getting all of the EVGA hate in this thread.
It wasn't EVGA that set the voltage guidelines, it was NVIDIA.<
How can you be upset with EVGA for "trying" to get around this locked voltage in the most legal way possible? MSI knew what they were getting in to by directly promising something that Nvidia was agaisnt....**SOFTWARE VOLTAGE CONTROL** The prices of this generation of GPU's is bad all around....$600 for a 2gb card. You can be sure that the Xtreme version will be close to $700.00, just like the Classified because of the 4gb vram.
I know everyone here is pissed, but the old BIOS should be flashable to ALL cards(Lightnings).
Download NVFlash and save the original BIOS, and then upload it to the website below.
^ This should make it widely available for ALL lightning owners!
Locked voltage seems to be here to stay, on Kepler anyway.....Im no longer waiting for GK110, I don't care how fast it is....AMD will be able to catch up with it anyway because of the unlocked voltage control.Edited by Benchmarksli - 7/24/12 at 11:03am
