I'm officially done with cross flashing. I'm happy with the 25.380 points on firestrike my FTW BIOS is giving me.
I just had that itch, you know?
I flashed the T4 BIOS to my 1080 Classified and it did not brick it. But due to the "removed" power limit I was not able to draw more than about 110w from the card (normally I can pull up to 320W).
I think its because it didn't know how to deal with the removed power limit. I tried cross flashing loads of other BIOS's and they all worked perfectly. I think if the power limit had simply been "increased" instead of "removed" it would have worked. It seemed to default to a failsafe low-power mode. I did see 1.1v at one moment -- if only for a brief period. Again -- if power limit was intact I believe I'd of seen a lot more voltage -- even up to 1.2 :-)
I've left a message on a forum some of the top LN2 guys communicate on (need to wait for approval just to get it posted) and I mentioned the power limit problem -- if they get back to me with anything useful I'll share on here :-)
One thing that was worth noting with the T4 bios is that I was able to get an extra 1000 fan RPM (could get up to 3800rpm. Which proves EVGA is artificially limiting our max fan speed with Classified 1080(probably because many reviewers are so critical about fan noise) -- I'd much prefer to have the CHOICE
!! or maybe they could even have added a "fan overclock" feature on PRECISION X.
Again --- If the power limit was intact on the T4 BIOS, not only would we have extra voltage for those LN2 newbies but for non-LN2 guys we'd of still had extra voltage and extra cooling -- I know voltage isn't doing much but imagine your card was "RIGHT" on the bleeding edge of JUST
falling short of hitting 2200 or 2100 -- the extra cooling and extra voltage may of helped some guys hit a few extra MHZ to get their 'even' one-hundred or two-hundred number. :-)
