Using nvflash while in sli?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've used the program before when I had one 670 but now that I have 2 I would like to flash the second card to be the same as the first. Also my older card has an older bios where the card has to hit 52c-53c to reach full boost. I can fix this with the galaxy bios. So would I be able to flash the older card while in sli or would I have to physically disconnect the second card to avoid problems? My older card is in the top slot which is the main one I believe.

Thanks!

I didn't need to disable SLI to update, just added option -i0 or -i1 (selecting a card) to the nvflash -4 -5 -6 step

I have the problem, that when I use nvflash commands the lower end of my screen start to flicker like crazy. I tried nvflash --list command to list my cards, hoping to select the card I wanted to flash, but I had to restart to make the flickering stop. Has anyone experienced somthing like this?

I use 3-way SLI with ASUS GTX 680 DC2T And ASUS Rampage II Extreme mobo.

I tried disabeling SLI, but the same thing happend?
