Hi folks. I'm new here - been playing around with PC's for many years but after a 3 year long, 'new child' induced hiatus, I'm back in to my computer tinkering finally and loving it! After stripping out and upgrading an old PC, my next challenge is overclocking my graphics card.

I've watched the how to videos on here and read several of the posts but I'm still a little confused - could somebody please help me out:

I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 2Gb - as far as I can tell, it's the vanilla Nvidia variety, nothing fancy and no other indication of a specific manufacturer. I understand the concepts at play here - ie flashing the video card BIOS to unlock power level etc - and I understand I need to use my original BIOS as the basis (template) for an edited version; my confusion lies in which BIOS I should use to obtain the new values for the edited BIOS?

Do I just find a BIOS for any make of GTX960 with 2Gb VRAM that I like the look of and copy the values across - or do I need a manufacturer/edition specific BIOS for my board?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

Before going down any fox-holes I'd recommend taking advantage of the recent price drops... if you can afford a new GPU it's not a bad time to get a 980 or a 980Ti. You can get a 980Ti for $300 used.. It's way faster than a 960...and would be what the doctor ordered.

As far as moddin'g that 960... well, I'm not sure you will gain much BUT it would help a little IF you could keep it cool enough. It sounds like you've got a reference design and not one with a custom cooler... I cannot really recommend modding that card TBH it can be an overheat waiting to happen (reference coolers are the worst MOD candidates). Especially with a 2GB VRAM limitation, it is somewhat pointless IMO.

but if you insist on doing this, I would recommend going over to the 960 owner's club (assuming there is one) as they may have a posted BIOS for a reference 960 already. This thread is where you would get the flash tool.

That's very sage advice and in truth, exactly what I was expecting to hear. Thanks for your reply.

'Reference design' was the phrase I was looking for when I said about no manufacturers marque! Several years ago, I had a decent self built, water cooled i5 rig with a high end MSI TwinFrozer GTX680 - it was great. Then I had kids and had to sell it, so have been out of the PC game for a while - kind of playing catch up with the current tech and still refreshing my 'know how' at the moment.

Having just bought a second-hand, off the shelf, i7 4970 with reference 960 card, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD and 2TB HDD, my spare funds are fairly depleted. Got a decent price on it though - knocked the guy down to £380 ($295) from £500 ($390). Especially as I also forked out for another 8GB RAM, Corsair RM650x PSU, Benq 1080p monitor and a couple of Noctua fans in anticipation of saving for a 1070/1080 in the next 6-8months or so. Just thought that while I was waiting I might try getting an extra 10-12 FPS out of Rise of Tomb Raider without having to drop the settings much lower than they are now - benchmark is giving ~60 FPS on current setting but dips to 48/50ish at times.

Thanks for the tip - I'll take a look at the 960 owners club (if it exists!) and see if anyone there can help. Thanks for taking the time to reply too.

Cheers

You sir, are a scholar and a gentleman - I shall take a leisurely peruse through their archives and see what I can turn up. Already had a quick scan through the members list and see there are some reference cards listed so hopefully there's a usable BIOS in there as well somewhere!

One thing I forgot to mention about cooling - I have a dedicated 120mm nzxt high flow case fan mounted on the bottom of my case running off the 3 pin mobo connector, so runs at full 1500rpm and blows a torrent of air directly on to the gpu intake fan and vents - noisy and somewhat Heath Robinson but better than the stock cooler alone! 😁👍

@JoeDirt Can you do a Bypass version for 5.383 ?

I can cross flash bioses using this on a 1080Ti, but it cert errors with a modified bios (hex edited)

5.287 doesn't seem to recognise 1080Ti



any other foreseeable issues flashing Pascal cards, obviously the CRC32 and MD5 hashes are not the same as signed, but using a checker it says the file is still signed. Would Nvidia drivers do a check against certs and not run?

I'd give my left nut and my kidney and a free mechanical keyboard for a NVflash with Cert checks bypassed for pascal, so we can flash our MxM Mobile Pascal GPUs with the new editor.....

Surprised this thread just died....especially considering there are a lot of very skilled people on OCN....yet no one wants to do anything? (Hell, even reverse engineer NVflash or make a Linux based flasher similar to flashrom, etc?)
