post #2691 of 7827
Okay, flashed to F8 and it works fine, now unlocked, power stays at +93 and I have 300% on the power target. Plugged in a quick +150/+350 and it ran heaven fine at ~66*C on auto fan (max boost 1350mhz). Going to see how far I can push it later, I want to switch my PSU cables so its using 2x 8 pin in stead of the daisy-chained one.

Awesome, glad it worked out thumb.gif
I was getting nervous for a second there. I must have missed Michael's locked-card-flash, because I just remembered someone a few pages back saying they had a bunch of problems after flashing a new card to the unlocked BIOS. Got my replacement card shipping from MSI soon, definitely didn't want it to be un-unlockable!

I should see what score I get with my CPU at 5Ghz and with HT enabled. The highest single 680 on air on The Bot is a Lightning (go figure tongue.gif), and it's at a Graphics Score of only 12,800. But he has a Physics score of 16,700. My highest is 16,500. I wonder if the difference between the 2 scores for us is enough to give me the edge thinking.gif

Update your sig dummy!
I see lowering the Mem clock helped with the core one quite a bit! What was the GPU PLL at?

I didn't mess around as much as I could. At those clocks, bumping the memory voltage might have stabalized it, but I kept it at the same voltage and just dropped the clock instead. I was only playing around with the core clock/voltage mostly. But PLL was at +60mv.

Kind Regards!

youre correct, at least partly. the 800409003A was actually 800428003A. hwoever, I know i have seen a "true" 09.00.3A .. killbuzzjrad has a copy of it im pretty sure. I will contact him again and get him to send me a copy. Thanks for pointing this out to me, I have removed the link in the OP

It's a toss-up now, seeing as a couple here already got locked cards. But I was nervous about flashing for the first time, but it's really not as hard as it used to be. You can only brick your card if something happens during the 1 second it takes to do, so just keep the computer at stock clocks and nothing should go wrong redface.gif
One line of text in a command window and a second or 2 later it's done. Literally easy as hell and a .001% chance of something bad happening if you have the right BIOS from the OP.

Whether it comes locked or unlocked depends if the place you get it from has some of the older stock or not, newer locked cards are showing up so it's a coin toss right now.
Hard to say if a bricked flash is OK for RMA, if they just quick test probably, if they actually check out why it isn't working maybe not. But a bricked flash can be fixed, you just need an extra card to be able to get display & reflash it.
