post #2821 of 7827
I'm currently trying to flash my cards to the unlocked bios I get to the CMD box and to the point where the guide at the front of this post says to type
" nvflash -4 -5 -6 680L_UnlockedBIOS.ROM" and it comes back with an error "cannot open file 680L_UnlockedBIOS.rom" What am I doing wrong that is making it throw this error?

Thanks for the help.

Assuming you have both NVflash and the BIOS file on your C:, the directions have to be adjusted to reflect the exact name of the BIOS file. The "680L_UnlockedBIOS.rom" should be replaced with whatever the name of the .rom file is you're flashing.

Also, run the CMD window by right-clicking on it and going to "Run as administrator", just to be sure it's not that. I know this is a common cause of an error when using ArtMoney for the hack, so, can't hurt to get into the habit of running things with "Run as admin" when doing these types of things redface.gif

Alright, I'm all flashed up to the unlocked bios, gonna start to run some benches and see if that's an improvement. Thanks a lot for the help guys it has been very valuable and I appreciate it!

EDIT: do you guys have any suggestions on stability issues? Been getting a few rsod's and still having big time heaven stability issues. I'm not trying to boost too much as it is sli and one card could be better than the other.. Having trouble keeping anything right near 1300 stable, and that's with no mem oc..

Thanks.

Did you flash the new BIOS to both cards?

Yep, did it to both cards, they both read the new LN2 BIOS in GPU-Z. All the benches run fine at stock settings but once I move anything up it seems to run into stability issues.

You mean you crash at 1300mhz when both cards are at +93mv? Do you have both cards' voltages increased to +93mv?

If you do have both set, then you may have a bad card. I would test each one individually, see what each one can hit on its own, and then put the better card on top, so that you can get a good overclock when you want to use one card for a game. Plus, individual testing will give you an idea of what SLI overclock you can get, since you'll be held back by the lower overclocker.

Yep both cards were at +93mv, I just completely wiped the drivers and I'm re installing them now, should I use 2.23 or 2.24? I have both on a flash drive so I can use whichever one seems to do better.

As for testing each card, I have the M5E which has the pcie dip switches to turn off the pcie slots, should i just use those or would it be better to manually mount each card in the top slot for individual testing?

I would think it's easier to just have the better card on top so all you have to do is enable/disable SLI with the Nvidia Control Panel anytime you want to.

But yeah I would test the cards individually to see if you have a really great card. Who knows...the one might hit 1400mhz and the other only 1280 and that could be the reason why you can't do 1300mhz SLI.
