Possibly so, it seems that in the US the unlocked Lightnings are sold out,
in my place there were still to be had 2 weeks ago ..

BTW I have posted the new 3DM11@1411MHz a while back, not that it s any major improvement..smile.gif

To everyone that pre ordered a block; I have just sent out 2 emails about payment, eta, shipping etc
Any questions please feel free to email/PM me or Gary with the emails that I've included in the information email.

Couldn't those Lightnings just get flashed to the new BIOS? Famich, sorry but I can't remember if it was you teichu, that said that you tried flashing to the new BIOS and it still didn't help? Is MSI changing the PCB in some way too or is it just the BIOS being changed to appease Nvidia? Because I would think the BIOS flash would work if nothing hardware-wise was changed.

thats what I was thinking.......didn't someone have a locked card before and they could flash the "unlocked LN2 bios"

I'm pretty sure. But someone said that the card they're returning is being returned because the 'unlocked' BIOSes didn't work either. I'd have to check my PMs. But maybe they'll see this post and jump in with some more info.

But yeah it was wierd. If I recall, they said it crashed with any movement of the voltage slider whatsoever even with the F8 and 3A BIOSes. So, either the chip was a rotten egg to begin with, or the PCB was somehow altered, because obviously if it was the BIOS then the flash would cure it.

Hi, nope, it was not me, I got luckily the Lightning with the "newer" 3A BIOS: just some lettering in the middle has changed, but when comparing both
A3 s with NVFLASH in DOS revealed that they are the same -I got the 80.04.28.00.3A version of the LN2 BIOS and my card works like a charm..

Strange thing , really, a BIOS flash should work.

Did that, didn't change a thing.

Oh yes, sorry, forgot it was you. Yeah that's wierd. Must be a bad chip (I would hope). Or else everyone is going to be holding onto the Lightnings they got now instead of trying for a better one.

haha I was kidding bro, I figured you were into benching =P
It's nice to see that IB loves the cold a lot more than SB
If you get a chance check if any of those 3770k's have a golden IMC, those are definitely the chips to break memory records on =D

Best of luck!
