But don't worry. I think it was just a simple misunderstanding. Everyone saw you post you were using it, so no worries

if you ain't cheating you aint trying bro. wink.gif

I would say August at CEBIT, W1zzard from TPU stated that was when we'd likely see it and he doesn't usually 'speculate'.

Thanks for the info though, and welcome to the thread/site thumb.gif

Here's something interesting:

I have been running the F8 LN2 BIOS for months with no issue, achieved my score earlier in this thread with it actually. I completely reassembled my computer today, put the car back in, and immediately started having AWFUL issues. First my computer would not recognize a VGA adapter, giving me the LONG SHORT SHORT ami POST beeps, then when that was remedied Windows did not recognize the card, when that was remedied, Afterburner did not have my clocks, after I reset my max overclocks, 3DMark artifacted instantly and crashed hard.

Maybe I should try the 3A biggrin.gif

The F8 LN2 bios and F7 non LN2 bios both cause my card to artifact like a mofo even at POST and the windows loading screen. 3A has been solid and although my card came with the 18 non LN2 bios I've modded and have been using the 39 non LN2 bios and it's good.

See, what I found that was strange with mine is that it came with a BIOS that registered in afterburner as LN2, but even with 2.2.3 it was locked. First I flashed F8 and had it for the longest time there, but as soon as I reassembled the computer, F8 totally wigged out. Just flashed 3A and retweaked everything, looks stable at my previous clocks so yay.

3A comes on some newer cards, but it's locked. They have to be flashed to the one from the OP, like you did thumb.gif

Yeah very few people have the F8 without problems. I had a card that F8 came on (it was one of the older ones), but I flashed it to the 3A just because my 2nd card needed to be flashed, so while I was at it I just went with 3A on both of them.

I don't think .39 is that bad. I had it for a while as my non-LN2. But I recently switched to F7 and have been fine.

But, my question from the other page, did anyone notice they have to restart the computer now before they can play a game that crashed? I haven't overclocked in a while, since before the .54's I believe. And now with .90 I crash from an overclock on the 3A, and I don't have to do a hard reset or anything, but the game won't open again afterwards until I restart the computer. When did this start?

There has been mention of a Windows update last week causing issues with Nvidia's drivers, I think mostly browsers locking up but it could be a update or new driver, or a combination of the 2, Nvidia is supposedly working on that issue with Microsoft, I don't know if that is your issue or not. I have had issues overclocking my Lighting's with all the 310 drivers, can't overclock as high and the clocks and volts will fluctuate or throttle even though the temps are below 45c.
