Which BIOS to download? HYNIX / Samsung memory

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a choice of a BIOS for HYNIX or Samsung memory:

http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4361&dl=1#bios

Not sure which is right for my system, any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Take the cooler off and see what memory chips you have. Could maybe look at gpuz and see what version bios you have currently on your card and try and match it with the corresponding one the Gigabyte page.

Good looking out on the quick response.

How risky is it if I just pick a random BIOS?

I'm a sucker and don't know if I can take off the cooler and put it back on properly (I am tripping on re-applying thermal grease, but if it's just removing screws I'm all game).

EDIT: My bios is flashed and I deleted the originals rolleyes.gif I regret doing that!

Looks like the 4 screws around the gpu socket need to come out for the cooler to come off. Maybe the other two screws at the end of the card too.

So the card is working fine with the new bios?

Doesn't matter about the original since this new bios is an official one from Gigabyte.

Naw, the new BIOS has the Boost 2.0 and it throttles my card really badly when it hits a certain temperature. I can't even keep the clocks idled even with 2D/3D settings, and use maximum performance in the Nvidia 3D control panel.

Was hoping to just go back to a stock BIOS, this new one I'm using seems to only be good for cards that can overclock super well.. I'm more concerned with stability.

By the way, if I remove these screws would I need to re-apply any TIMM when I want the cooler to be re-attached?

easy way, take a backup of your original bios with GPU-Z, after open the bios file with Nvidia Bios Kepler Editor and read the bios file name it should write Fxx on the top.

If the bios is F1x > Samsung
if the bios is F2x > Hynix

The thing is

my original BIOS isn't flashed to my GPU

it is flashed with the one from the 660 thread to unlock boost 2.0 and more power% limit.

So what can I do now?
