1 question, I heard there's an option for advanced RMA? Like fast RMA... I heard they put a hold on your account till they receive the bad card and send out the new card right away. How will I be able to do this? I'd love to have an advanced RMA if possible.
Ah yes, you give them your credit card info for safety for them and they send you out a card before you send yours out. However I have only heard of EVGA doing this, but I would still ask your rep.

It's a total PITA. If you check what the difference is with previous version BIOS and it's modded version - it changes in 2 places; the value you enter and just before the VN@. If you do the same comparison on the new BIOS and it's mod, the only difference is the value you changed. If you manually change the 2nd entry to match what the checksum gives it still fails.

I've given up as it gives me a headache lol. Would need to understand who came up with the idea to copy down to the VN@ part in the first place (the method that worked previously) which would then give a hint as to why the new BIOS fails and how to fix it.

Any chance you could unlock the fan speeds to 100%?

Just a quick question here guys.

Still waiting on my advanced RMA to come back...its been past 48hours and I should have heard something by now. Have called twice with no results. Calling today. If they don't have anything I'm returning my card for a full refund to newegg.

So my bad Asus DCII 670 can only do 1150MHz core and 400Memory. Now it artifacts anything past 400memory and anything past 1150core. Temperatures on stock cooling only hit around 55C. Under my modded closed loop water, max temp is 35C! Watercooling did absolutely nothing to aide in achieving a higher clock. The card is obviously not bios modded, but what have people experienced as far as a gain in MHz when upping the volts from 1.175V to 1.200V? Much of a gain? I definitely plan on having heatsinks on the memory chips and the card under water when I get a good working card. So I'm just wondering what I should expect the extra overclock yield to be when voltage modding the card? It appears that kepler is not hindered whatsoever by temperatures but just the silicon you get. My crap DCII has a ASIC score of 65% which is darn low, so I'm also wondering what other people's max overclocks are with higher ASIC scores?

I figure voltage modding won't really be that bad on my card once I get a working 670. If I keep the max temps of the core under 40C I wouldn't ever expect there to be degradation if I run 1.200V...hopefully.

Reasonable assumptions?

Glad your interested in this great and easy bios mod smile.gif . People get around a 30-50mhz boost, the least I have seen so far is about 30. Is that worth it? That is up to you.

Wow thats it? That doesn't even translate into .5fps in heaven3.0.... Increasing the voltage help overclocking the memory as well or just core?

I've not heard of over volting helping with Memory over clocking.

When you put things into perspective, over volting to achieve 30-50 MHz Core OC for 3-5 FPS gains isn't worth that degradation IMO.

If your a bencher I could understand and you wouldn't be running it 24/7 anyway over volted. I never saw enough gains over volting to justify it with my 580 or 6870.

Thanks man! Yea I've found out my unlocked 580 wasn't much help going from 1.150V to 1.2V, 1.163V to 1.175V didn't yield me more than 25MHz core clock which is basically pointless for 4C higher temps. Although the biggest improvement I found for my 580 was temps. Gained 20MHz by just cooling it below 50C.....


Thanks for the halp guys! I think i might just stay away from bios mod and just pray I get a good DCII next week...popesmiley.png

I don't know if this is the same for everyone but I get terrible clocks on my closed loop watercooled card even though the core temps are down 30 degrees from the reference...

My evga 670 ftw has an asic score of 74.8 so pretty far from perfect but that clocks to 1333 under water (universal gpu block and lots of small sinks for ram and vrms)
