Pull the card out of the computer you don't want to flash, that's the best way. You could use this command to see what cards you have listed in nvlfash: "nvflash --list"

Then flash the appropriate card.

My motherboard has pci-E switches that can turn on and off that pci lane, so it's easier for me. I'm not sure if you have this feature on your motherboard.

Have you noticed overclocking your cpu make a difference on gaming?
I know you have to since you are in SLI but in single card on 1920x1200?

Never gamed at that resolution before. But SLI does need a decent overclock for some games. BF3 being one of them. But yeah as long as no cores are maxing out then I don't think overclocking the CPU would make much more of a different in games. Maybe benchmarks though.

An easy way I've used the past couple times is just to put '--index=1' in the line in the OP. So to flash the second card, type in 'nvflash --index=1 -4 -5 -6 filename.rom'

Hey guys,

Flash successful, my second Lightning had a problem in which it was shipped with the wrong BIOS. It was showing up as a GTX 680 Power Edition, and running lower clock speeds.
I contacted an MSI rep who was very helpful and told me that the BIOS version i'm running shouldn't even be compatible with the card.

So i ended up flashing both the cards to F8 and i'm happy now.

MY next question, how do i overclock and test the second card seperately, as i have the highest stable clock on my first card, i want to do the same with the second and test if before i connect the SLI and overclock them together

AFAIK MSI Afterbuerner lets you to steer both cards separately, you just have to untick the option " synchronise settings for similar graphic processors " in the config menu thumb.gif

Hi guys,
I'm trying to back up my original bios so I can then load the f8 version.
But gpu-z bios save feature comes back with an error "bios reading not supported on this device."
Help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
