Ive managed to backup my original file but dont know what to change if the bios on the first page are supposed to be already modified bios whats the difference?

I downloaded Kepler Bios Tweaker and opened each one and they all seem the same?

Do i change the Boost Limit or clock in Kepler Bios?

After i finish changing how do i flash im confused sorry for the noob questions but i figured better to ask then to screw up a 360$ card

I already explained which value to change - its value called Def ( mW ) on the left. Do not touch the values on the right.

You can also increase Max (mW)

Also, you need to unlock the higher voltage, click on "voltages" and increase both max voltages to maximum ( 1.21v )

You dont really need to edit Boost limits or core clocks in bios, you can just change this in Msi Afterburner or Evga Precision.

Card will already boost much more, just because of the added voltage.

If it boosts too much and is unstable, you need to lower the clock in precision or AB into - teritory, for example -50 etc...

If it doesnt boost more, or its stable and you think you can push it more, then ofc increase core clock in AB or precision.

If it throttles, increase Def (mW) even more.

As for flashing, put these files in same folder as Kepler Bios Tweaker and option to flash or read your card bios will appear in the program.

Ok thanks first an foremost!

I did exactly what you stated raised def mW on the left to 170000 and changed the voltages to 1.2 flashed the bios opened up evga precision and was looking at voltages its set to 987. Do i need to touch this at all or leave it where it is? I started heave and it had the GPU clock at 1100+ which is above the original right? So im assuming like you said from the extra voltage it boosted the speed of the GPU?

TiesTorn, do not be afraid to edit yourself with the program I attached to this post.

Just edit the value called Def (mW ) do not touch anything alse.
Increase it by 15-20w you if you have something like 150000 increase it to 170000 etc..
It might help with throttling smile.gif

If it works better ( throttles less ) it would mean it helps on your card, then increase it even more depending on your card model, but don't go overboard

KeplerBiosTweaker.zip 93k .zip file
Yeah actually I edited those values using the kepler editor website in the first message, I increased the default power target and edited some fan values, now it throttles much less. But what I understand is it is almost impossible to use it around 1300mhz with the stock cooling while keeping the fan noise under control. I think I'll stick with 1228mhz, which throttles to 1200mhz while under heavy load... It was throttling to smth like 1130 before.

Or maybe I should just buy another one of these to do SLI biggrin.gif

Voltage will only be at maximum during load, you can enable voltage to be shown during games in OSD ( on screen display )
Or you can just check what the voltage was when you exit the game in precision.
It should read 1.21v
You can max the slider to +100mV, but usually card will use max voltage regardless.
I am not sure what you card boosts to with original bios, but 1100 seems low with added voltage. If it wont boost more, you can add core clock offset in MSI or EVGA software.
Then of course, test for stability.
It it throttles too much, increase def mW to 190000 and Max mw to 250000

If you want, you can try increasing Def value even more, since it seems that it worked for you smile.gif

Highest i get under load is 1.175 BF3 was running at 99% max and heaven around 90-95 sometimes higher never got above 1.175

does the bios have to be unlocked in anyway? Because i am noticing people are seeing changes in their precision software where they can change the power percentage to 150 and mine is still at 145 and like i said voltage is stuck at 1.175

The voltage increase does NOT show up in any hardware monitor, but trust me, it works. +100v gets you all the way towards the 1.3v mark. Do however notice, that the kepler GPU's doesent seem to scale very well with voltages beyond the 1.2v mark.

This is a heavily modified Galaxy BIOS, that has been made to work with the 670 PE

Thanks for the modded BIOS iRandomize. Some questions before I take the leap. Is there any information about this modded BIOS anywhere? Like random values I should adjust for default to get my Card running at the stock settings, so I can so some overclocking on it in a standard manor? Additionally, you say underclock! Does this mean, I'll need to drop into negatives on MSI Afterburner 2.2.3 in both core and memory to get to normal stock. Any hints about a good custom fan profile listed anywhere on the site?

I want to do throrough research before I even flash the BIOS! Don't want to blow my card prematurely. I am a super noob! They took other noobs and stuck them together to get me! Haha!

One last thing, when flashing BIOS's I can always reflash the card back to the default I sent if things go pear shaped right???

Sorry for asking such simple questions, but like I said, my brain clusters when ity comes to overclocking!

Do this in Kepler Bios Tweaker:

Put both Max Voltage 1 and 2 at 1.18 ( 1187.5 mW )
If you want to have power slider move to 150, then just increase Max ( mW ) value until it says 150% smile.gif

Sorry for asking such simple questions, but like I said, my brain clusters when ity comes to overclocking!

First of all, most of your questions are not simple! On this BIOS, you will most likely be running a stock clock speed of 1306.5mhz. Dropping the values in BIOS does by no means change the overclocking results. Yes, you might have to put the values into the negatives in MSI afterburner, but this isn't a very big deal, since you will still be running at a way higher clock speed, than you use to. Really, you shouldn't worry about that. If you are unstable, you drop the clock speeds, if not, you can try to raise them. Nothing has changed from the "standard manor".
The memory isn't overclocked, so that should be overclocked "in a standard manor", no reason to put that in the negatives.

As long as you make a backup of your original BIOS (there is a backup at techpowerup as well), you can always reflash that one - and it is impossible to discover it has ever been messed with! wink.gif

Really, just go ahead and flash it, we will be more than happy to help you out!

I have indeed suggested your fix a couple of time, the results have been mixed. However, TiesTorN is suffering from temperature throttleing, allowing more power to the GPU will by no means make that better. He is obviously already able to push his card towards the magical 218watt limit, and hence, i do not believe he is suffering from a malfunctioning power target (i might be wrong though, but i sincerly doubt it).

And, if you are gonna mess with the Default Power target, you migh as well throw it to 225watt (there is no overboard, 218watt is the absolute limit of the card, and it can easily manage that). The card will only draw the power it needs, and that will allow you to never worry about power target again. (a common misunderstanding is, that you should keep the power target as low as possible, this is however wrong, since upping the power limit won't force power to the card. If it needs 180watt, it will draw 180watt regardless of a 190watt power limit or a 654watt power limit)
