This behavior is part of the reason GPU are expensive. The specs are the specs, anything more is a bonus. But junking your card raises the price for everyone. I am sure nvidia would get it back check it and resell it but whatever employee your time wasted will be factored into the price of the next iteration at release... Thanks for that.

Hey guys

I just swapped out my MSI GTX980ti Gaming 6G for a eVGA GTX980ti Hybrid (Due to case downsizing, better for cooling).
Was wondering if anyone else who owns one did you swap out the stock fan and if so what with?

I have an MSI Seahawk GTX 980 Ti. If I flash the bios with the file in the main post will I be okay? Or do I need a specific file for my exact card?

Hypothetically yes, definitely don't grab the voltage modified BIOS, just the unlocked one. Personally I haven't tried flashing across vendors. You should know that if this doesn't go right you have a $700 coaster.

Which assuming the failed flash is complete and not corrupt, can VERY EASILY be recovered by flashing your stock BIOS using another GPU

If NvFlash succeeds at writing a dodgy BIOS, and the card doesn't work, its a case of using another GPU (Or iGPU) to reflash your stock BIOS.

However if something interrupts the flash, ie a power cut and the write is incomplete. your card may be totally bricked, depends on the state of it
