If you have an old card to boot with then you are double-good. Zero risk thumb.gif


Nothing should happen though. It's easy and quick. You'll see what I mean after your first time. I was the same way but there's really nothing to it at all.

This ^, I've flashed gpu bios' probably 100 times or more, the only time I've had a bad flash was trying to flash the wrong bios & with a second gpu it was an easy fix. It's less scary than updating a mobo bios.

yes my new one had max of 133% too. then i flashed to the original LN2 BIOS, the 80.04.09.00.F8, and it is now at 300% max and "full" voltage control

Edit: i see that you did that already and everything is working as expected thumb.gif

I think you can try "my" unlocked BIOS 28.00.3A as well- it s newer and will not give you the need for the hard reboot after the failed overclock...thumb.gif

NICE!!!
No but seriously, can I see a screenshot of that email?
Seems unusual, then again MSI royally pissed Nvidia off with the software voltage control, they might be limiting their GPU stock as a result.

Hi Guys,

here's what I've done,

1) uninstall AB 2.2.3 + settings removed.
2) uninstall all nvidia drivers and cleaned up using driver sweeper
3) powered off, flick switch to LN2 bios
4) boot and reinstall latest drivers + AB 2.2.3

who-let-rip-smiley.png


BTW, TS, 80.04.47.00.18 is a normal BIOS. Apologies for not being clear enough in my previous post.

80.04.47.00.19 is a Locked LN2 BIOS as showned above.
post #2709 of 7827
Hey guys! Can I please be added to the list please!!
post #2710 of 7827
wyssn flash 3A LN2 Bios and see what happens, but please do backup your normal/ln2 bioses first, and if you are kind enough to upload them we'll be very grateful.
