I've been having problems overclocking my EVGA GTX 680 SuperClocked and I was wondering if I should BIOS mod it. I've done a couple BIOS mods. First one was my 8800GT which was dead the moment I tried flashing the BIOS in
I couldn't even get the computer to boot with the card in, let alone reflash it
After that I flashed three 6950's but they were a breeze since they had dual BIOS.
So my real question here is how should I do it and should I do it at all. I've tried modding the BIOS (without flashing it) and I couldn't tell if the voltages were right or not. All I want is unlocked voltage and 100% fan speed. Everything else I can do with MSI Afterburner or EVGA Precision, right?
So far I haven't been able to overclock the card at all. For example if I increase the core by 5MHz and try gaming Skyrim for a prolonged period the screen will just go black at some point and after a little while I get picture again, BUT the clocks will be forced to 2D clocks until I reboot. I've been telling myself that it is the NVidia boost technology's fault and BIOS modding would help. What do you guys think?
EDIT: If I use the KGB program and set Voltage = 1212500 does it change only the 3D voltage? And does it prevent voltage throttling or do I have to use another program?Edited by Tuxi - 11/15/13 at 9:19am
