Setting idividual fans NO SLI

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I disabled SLI to fold on multi GPUs but heres my issue now

with SLI off... I can only control 1 card via EVGA Precision with fan and clocks

While clocks are not as important, I do wan't that fan speed up!

Is there a way to mess with the video BIOS to change fan speeds there?

You could use Nibitor to edit one of the graphics cards BIOS files to manually adjust the fan speeds. Alhough I've just opened my own graphics card's original BIOS ROM backup and all of the fan speeds (Extra, 2D, 3D, and Thrtl) all show as 100%. It may be worth a shot, just be sure to keep a copy of your card's original BIOS.

You can obtain NiBiTor and various BIOS files from MVKtech. I hope that helps you out somewhat

NiBiTor can't load drivers from within the operating system if you're using 64-bit. You'll need to create a bootup disc and place nvFlash (also available from MVKtech) onto it.

To obtain your BIOS file boot with a bootup disc and once at the command prompt type the following;

nvflash -b backup.rom

This will backup your original BIOS file. You can then go into Windows and then load it with NiBiTor to edit it. Once edited, save the file as a different file name and then boot into the command prompt again. Once there type the following;

nvflash -5 -6 filename.rom

It will ask you to hit enter to flash your card on two occasions twice but only hit enter once to flash the first card. Also when nameing your edited BIOS file be sure not to exceed eight characters as DOS doesn't recognise filenames longer than eight characters.

nvFlash

NiBiTor

I hope that's everything you'll need, I can't be anymore helpful without flying over to the states and doing it for you.

How do I use nvFlash? I am in XP 32bit right now and I launch the CMD and it just keeps scrolling then exits....

The BIOS editor was able to save the BIOS, I edited the fan_min speed to 100%..now how do I flash this new saved BIOS to the card?

EDIT: now i know what the USB article was bout
