Alright, you cant just click it you need to use command prompt. I will list all steps needed.

1. Make a folder called "nvflash" that is located in the root of the C: drive (where the program files, and windows folders are). Put both nvflash.exe and nvflsh64.sys in there. Also put both the roms in there. The oc strix and the old rom. I renamed the roms, strix.rom and old.rom.

2. Open command prompt with administrative by going to start menu, and typing "cmd". Then when "cmd.exe" shows up, right click it and click run as administrator.

3. Now that command prompt is open we want to move to the nvflash folder where all the stuff is. Type "cd c:\nvflash" without the quotes.

4. Now we can flash cards.
First,
"nvflash -i0 --protectoff" no quotes, screen will flicker, wait about 10 seconds.

Then type,
"nvflash -i0 -6 strix.rom" no quotes, your screen will flicker and it will ask you TWICE if you really want to do this. Press the key "y" each time to continue.

You will have to reboot to take effect, and possible reinstall drivers. If you named your rom different than strix.rom put that instead.

To go back to your original rom follow the same steps except use old.rom in place of strix.rom.


PLEASE, make sure you have another graphics card (or an integrated GPU) in case something goes wrong and you need to use it to "unbrick" your card. If that does happen, you will have to perform additional steps that are not listed above.

Will do that now!

Thanks!

I got a GT210 in case something goes very wrong. I am not scared of this flash thingy, saved a friends 780 when he flashed his wrong, so I am familiar with the process.

And I'm folding, so I've got 3x 980Tis if the 210 dosen't work. wink.gif

+Rep!

Got it all working now, only issues is.

*ERROR: GPU mismatch*

You got any idea of what that is? I renamed the ROM to EVGA.rom so it would be easier to type. I do have a mobo with PLX chips, can that have something to do with it?

I used the command, but instead of 0I i used F.

'nvflash -F -6 EVGA.rom'

Didn't need to double press Y though, is this OK?

Says ASUS in GPU-Z now, and it displays a picture. Thanks! smile.gif

wow, with that new XOC bios I'm getting no throttling? I also get 1.111v instead of 1.093? I'm gonna go test firstrike and timespy and report back. I've got the Zotac FE btw.
