I have to save my BIOS this time, new card came with a wierd-ass one. So, is that how you save with NVflash? I've always gotten an error when I try to save mine. Could you type out some more detailed steps on how to go about booting to the flash drive with NVflash on it? I have it saved on a flash drive, just need to know where to go from there redface.gif

Yep, it works perfectly fine on win version of nvflash wink.gif
(http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2133/NVFlash_5.118_for_Windows.html)



Ps: "-b" works fine also, it's the same as "--save", but doing it inside win cmd saves you the hassle of booting from a flash native dos enviroment.

Open folder "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide" after downloading it in .zip
Has all needed tools in it.

(Getting bit outdated, but what I've been using...maybe add the new version of nvflash yourself ...)

Open folder "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" See SP27213.exe

Instal to your PC. It will instal itself in a folder called "USBDriveFormatTool". Open it.

Have a flash drive plugged in ready to use. Click on HPUSBFW.EXE

Choose "Create a DOS startup disk" using files from ... Browse to "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide"

Select "USB image w7" and Start. This takes ages.

Copy "USB flash tool for NVIDIA GPU's +Fermi BIOS guide/nvflash" folder contents to the usb

Restart and in motherboard bios make the usb drive the first in your boot order list.

It will say Windows Millenium and below that c: prompt

Type c:nvflash -b backup.rom

Restart, change boot order back, etc....as needed.

Michael, new BIOS for the OP-

---
80.04.47.00.19. Definitely not a good LN2 one to have I would think. Stock clock is 1111mhz. Afterburner let me set the voltage at +93mv and apply it, it didn't shoot down to +18mv or anything like that. But I don't have a DMM to see if the card is getting it or not. Probably not at 1.36v since it probably has a lower stock voltage. Not sure what it is though. Flashing to the unlocked 3A now and going to do some testing.

Please if you can upload your normal/ln2 bios so we can add them to bios compilation. Looking forward to seeing your results!

Yeah let us know how the new card goes man. The new one i bought the other day that has a rubbish chip in it had a funny new bios also that stated "power edition" Not lightning even though the card is a 680 Lightning.. :S Let me know how it runs as soon as you know... wink.gif

I need more lightnings but will need to buy them used now so i can get ones that can at least do 1400mhz and i won't find any new ones that can, 1/100 chance! lol So ill be looking for a while. frown.gif

Will do.

Well this card sucks. Did 1270mhz on stock voltage, so I thought it looked promising. Since the +93mv usually got me around 70mhz more, I figured it wasn't a great card, but decent. But it won't pass at 1350mhz even at +131mv frown.gif

Haven't gone higher yet, but yeah, this is definitely not a winner.

I guess we have to say goodbye to very well-binned chips frown.gif
Thanks a lot Nvidia.

Yep! I knew that was what was going on and when I seen my Lightning come up as "power edition" I suspected wat was going on. New batches are mediocre chips and I was lucky to get a decent one of those which still falls far short of the originals! Yeah thanks to Nvidia! Only way now is to buy a used gpu with proven ability! Ima lookin, but it's not gonna be successful.. frown.gif

I'm going to sell these and check the market threads for anyone selling theirs.

This one seems to do fine on the stock volts, no crashing during folding or anything like that like the last one (unfortunately), so, no reason to RMA. Guess I'll have to take the hit selling it used if I decide to buy a proven performer.
