Going to this card from a 480 will blow your mind. You should be excited thumb.gif

Anything I should know when flashing the MSI card to the unlocked bios? I plan on doing that pretty much right when I get it. As far as I know you need the latest afterburner (or is it just 2.2.3?) and to download the unlocked bios and flash right?

Use AB 2.3.3 because it's unlocked. You can use later versions but you would have to edit a .cfg file.

Why i mention Crysis 3 is because that game demolishes both core and mem of your highest OC you can push. . and i'm using Full HD. redface.gif oh and on LN2 mode hey using 2.2.3

700 on the memory? oh well thats pretty nice actually, I can only push it to 485 or 495, my gpu core clock its at 1398 right now with the voltage at 1.285v its really strange because its set at +93. I can push it to 1411 as max but. 1450 its something I can do but my voltage just go up to 1.85, idk why.

Flashing is easy, just have to follow the directions. Save your current BIOS, whatever it may be, first. And make sure in the one step you type in the same file name you saved the 3A BIOS as, if it's different from the example file name in the directions. And, run the command window as admin. Just two somewhat common problems I've seen some have. Other than that, it's pretty self-explanatory. Just flash, reset the PC, get Afterburner 2.2.3, and you're good thumb.gif

Wait this is confusing what do you mean exactly? Maybe because I've never done it before. haha

In the directions it says type " nvflash -4 -5 -6 680L_UnlockedBIOS.rom "

He means instead of typing '680L_unlockedbios.rom' exactly as it is in the instructions, you type in the filename of the file you are flashing to.
