You need a crappy graphics card to flash the lightning? You can't just use Intel graphics 4000?

Absolutely not. He was just saying that worst-case scenario (something goes wrong during the flash, like computer turns off for some reason), it can be fixed by using another graphics card to boot from. But no, flashing is easy, the chance of something going wrong if you revert the whole computer to stock settings before the flash are 1 in a 1000 if you have the right BIOS.

You can flash each card individually. Just have SLI disabled, and use the 'index=1' command in the one line. So it would look like this if you wanted to flash the bottom card (top card is 0, which the flash defaults to so you don't have to enter the extra command for flashing the top card, only index=1 to specify the bottom card): nvflash index=1 -4 -5 -6 680L_UnlockedBIOS.rom

I got the .exe, saved it on my C: folder, along with the unlocked 3A LN2 BIOS, which you can find in the first post of this thread. Save it in the C: folder, and either use the name that it has, or if you change it, make sure you type in whatever the file name is. If you save it as Unlocked_3A.rom, then you type that in when typing in the commands when flashing instead of the name the directions in the first post say to use. So for the directions in the first post, only thing you change is the filename of the .rom BIOS file, to whatever filename you save it as. Other than that, run the cmd window by right-clicking it when it pops up and going to "Run as admin" and follow the rest of the instructions word for word. Nothing will go wrong.

Just adding a few lines in the msi config. It's in post 1 I believe

You can flash BOTH cards at once, but in the DOS environment. Bootable USB stick , NVFLASH / DOS version / and the unclocked BIOS
-both switches on both cards on LN2 position.

Boot to DOS - type nvflash --list / you will see BOTH cards listed /

type nvflash --index OR -i0 -4 -5 -6 ***.rom / this is the first card /

then nvflash -i1 -4 -5 -6 ***.rom / that ll be the second one /

reboot and done ...thumb.gif
