Plus I had some throttling issue today, I was at ~70 fps and it started to lag, then I was stuck at ~20 fps, I had to restart the pc to get my fps back.

You either have very bad case cooling, not a custom fan profile(which can take off 5-10c), or your OC is way up there. you should be able to stay under 70c all the way up to 1400 core.
Or you live in mexico with no A/C

I tried to Max the voltages (Core Voltage +100, Power Limit +133 and Memory Clock +100), put the core clock +50 and memory clock +100....... and when i'm playing BF3 it starts to mess my game. Can't overclock at all.

Can someone help me? 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.

My system:
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)

You should easily beable to do +25 core +500 mem on stock voltage
you should be more then pleased with that OC

So i flashed the bios and for my surprise it went very, very bad...

I followed all the steps RIGHT and after the reboot the card went crazy, Fans went to MAX, lots of noise and did'nt stop!

The screen was ****ed up badly with scratches! And my resolution was very low too.... i reboot again after the "windows install", thought it would be right then, but no, it became worse....

I managed to flash it back to backup bios now.... it was a hell of a scary thing!!

downloaded all files, then nvflash -4 -5 -6 archive.rom

Y
Y

then reboot

It became like hell

What should i do now??

Where you in LN2 bios? Also did you replace in nvflash -4 -5 -6 archive.rom "archive".rom for the name of the rom you downloaded?

Alright, I flipped my Bios switch and it seems like I have the unlocked LN2(3A), however my MSI AB(2.2.3) slider won't go past 133% to the the supposed 300%, what should I do?(Flash to F8?)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


I heard there were locked versions of the unlocked bios... yeah kinda weird. If the unlock voltage control in AB is checked, and you have max 133%, then you just have to flash to the BIOS from the OP.

Alright I downloaded both the unlocked 3A and unlocked F8 from page 1 along with newest version of NVFlash, will try the 3A first.

NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU! F8 doesnt work for the latest cards, that's the problem. Download the 3A and try to reflash.
