What other BIOS brand can I use to replace my XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog BIOS???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an XFX GeForce 8800GT Alpha Dog Edition 512Mb PCIe that is factory clocked at 640Mhz Clock, 950Mhz Memory, 1600Mhz Shader. And I want to flash it with the bios of another manufacturer! I have a pinkscreen problem (if you google this you know what I mean) and it is sure not overheating 'cause I have a Zalman VF1000 cooler on my card and my card reaches 57° celsius playing Crysis on Maxed out settings for hours! Also my memorie on the card has heatsinks and the Zalman also blows on them.
What BIOS from another brand can I use to flash my card, 'cause I think that this is a BIOS thingie, 'cause all the solutions people give on the web don't work, but some say if you flash your bios to another brand it simply does't happen anymore! Now I am willing to try that because this is a VERY annoying problem! I flashed in the paste my old ASUS card to another brand and that one worked fine for years! Can anybody give me some advice to what brand of BIOS I can use for my XFX 8800GT card???
Big thanks in advance!
Best regards, Kodiak.

just because the core is not overheating doesn't mean that the ram isn't. The temp sensor on the card cannot read memory temps.

go to mvktech there are bios there for all of the 8800gt as well as the nbitor tool required

pick one of the evga bios (or try all of them for that matter) or one of the lower overclocked XFX bios
