What do I do with the ROM file? Where do I put it to update the bios?
Any help much appreciated.
With respect, if you can't figure that out, perhaps flashing the bios isn't a good idea.... redface.gif

I keep my card @ 1306Mhz for gaming and my temps and noise levels are extremely good, not as good as a custom loop obviously, but much better than stock. I don't keep my videocards long enough for a custom loop to make sense for me.

Imho, that's an extremely high temperature.

Not really sure about the pressure part either.
Would love to see a comparison the "pressed" standard plate vs good individual copper heatsinks.

Damn the card is loud even at stock clocks biggrin.gif. Boost goes up to 1110mhz, temps max out at 72c playing BF4 for 1 hour.

Try down volting. If you can sustain same clock at lover volts, then less heat will be generated and the fans doesn't need to spin as fast, thus creating less noise wink.gif

Games like battlefield 4 are very demanding on the gpu, so expect high temps when playing them

You also have to keep in mind most GK110 cards don't have vrm temp sensors, so when most cards are running 75-83c on the core, so is the vrm and usually higher. And keep in mind this is at stock clocks. Example below

The pressure tidbit was made from my own comparison on the plate vs. the heatsinks when I had my MSI TF3 7950 with an accelero cooler. I couldn't keep the vrm cool on that card, so I tried a ton of things. the plate with fujiupoly thermal pads turned out to be the best combo.

What Voltages do you suggest for stock clocks? Memory runs at 1600mV, AUX 1050mV and core 1162mV.

For some reason AB doesnt allow me to undervolt though.. I can set it to +2 and I can apply it fine, but when I set it to f.e. -2 and press apply it just changes it back to +0 for the gpu voltage.

Guess I need to download and apply a skyn3t bios.

I honestly haven't tried downvolting. I would be interested to see if you could go lower. Your current voltage is already pretty good though. The voltage that you can reduce to will be dependent on whatever keeps you stable and artifact free. Keep backing down in the voltage until you see artifacts. I wouldn't go too aggressive though. Maybe trying in 10 mvolt increments.

Possibly set the Core-Clock down to 980 Mhz .. might be enough without losing too much frame-rate

Not sure what happened, had the PC switched off for a few hours and the card doesnt seem all that loud anymore (not sure if placebo or magic). I'm gonna run it as it is for now. Thanks for the tips though, much appreciated! When I can be arsed I'll give that skyn3t bios a go and try undervolting a tad bit thumb.gif. Not really looking to OC it and sacrifice noise/temps at this point atleast, reason I bought this beast was because of an extremely good sale price (399 euros).

Yepp, but Lightning does! And my vrm with EK block never goes above 50°c that's full loads at [c]1400Mhz/[m]7300Mhz usually the temp stay around 46-48°C. So when you get twice that temp it scares me xD .. even if I know it's tested to take 105°c
