Can someone help I won't flash the bios
because i'm worried it might damage my cards, i live in Brazil, bought the cards on Amazon, so if something goes wrong i'm really screwed.
i7 960 (OC'ed to 4.0mhz)
12 GB RAM corsair dominator GT (OC to 2000Mhz)
Asus rampage III extreme Mobo
HD WD Velociraptor 750gb
I want to overclock at least +50 on core clock and +100 memory (running on SLi, it's giving me a lot of trouble)
Well, you're out of luck then. You're on the locked BIOS, so the voltage sliders do nothing. If you don't flash, they won't adjust the voltage, and you have to rely on what you can do on the stock voltage, which doesn't appear to be much.
Don't worry about flashing, it's easy. And even if something happens, you have the second one to boot from and can reflash the one that messed up. So either way, you'll be fine
