I now have more control over the card (I can OC it better) but I still need to have the boost button pressed for the card to function properly and I lost the fan speed (tachometer) a couple weeks ago while on the stock BIOS and have not been able to see the fan speed since. I think that the fan just runs 100% constantly because I can hear it ramp up at some point after turning on the computer. I am also unable to control the fan speed manually. I have cleaned and re-installed drivers (331.40) but still no luck on getting this card to act 100% good. Also, when I OC, the memory clocks up and holds but the core clock sits at 1097 and then only goes up higher when a game is demanding it.
Any ideas? Should I make a boot key and reflash in DOS? I've flashed the card with the boost button in both positions.
I'm in Windows 8.1 with an i7-950 and X58A-UD3R motherboard.
friendly advice. return it , this is the best thing you going to do. no matter what bios you going to flash even if your GPU come out with the new bios revision. The only safe wait and not loose clock's while playing it not to OC that GPU too high , this is it. I think we only have 3 members here with HOF , last was killer344
, after a damn change Nv drivers his GPU never come out back to live it's just simple DIED no reason. WHT swap a NV drivers kill a GPU? yup it just happen. ask him he may give you a better input. He used to own it, but no anymore. and I hope for your good sake do the same if you can or while you have the time.PS: skyn3t no longer support HOF GPU bios I will be take down tonight - 10/17/13 Thursday 11:46 PM. until Galaxy come with the fix and post they REAL report what cause the GPU to ack like that. and if you have any question just PM I will be right here.Edited by skyn3t - 10/17/13 at 8:55pm
