That's what I'm using, voltage monitoring/control is unlocked.
Any editing needed to AB?

Hey all. I sent an e-mail to chatch but I thought I'd post here as well. I just got my evga GTX 470 SC a couple days ago. Two quick questions: what're the benefits of using the ASUS bios he linked as opposed to the stock bios? And to flash it, how does one go about switching it from a .bin file to a format accepted by XtremeTuner?

Thanks in advance.

The ASUS bios is needed for the ASUS SmartDoctor program. You will get an error if you try to start the program with a non ASUS card.

Simply rename the file from .bin to .rom.

My email has been down because my computer has been hard-locking in call of duty 4. I'm trying to get that sorted out. Even with the stock clocks and EVGA bios it freezes

Afterburner 1.6.0 Beta 5 will be out in an hour and supports 470 voltage modification.

one thing i have noticed for those of you who are going between asus smart doctor and msi afterburner: asus smart doctor allows me to run a little more voltage than msi. the difference is somewhat small, but for those wanting the most voltage out of their cards, this might make the difference.

for me, even with the extra bit of voltage, i am still unable to get past 850/1700/924 with my zotac 480 using the zotac bios. i might be able to turn the mem up a little bit, hopefully to 1000, but i am not banking on it.

Thanks for the quick reply chatch. I guess I'll hold off on the bios, I was just curious to see if the ASUS bios proved to OC better. I have yet to start my trials, so another couple quick questions. I've got my "old" GTX 275 (it's the MSI overclocked TwinFrozr version with dual fans, still runs like a beast...) as a PhysX card, shouldn't be a problem when doing to OC trials to have that sitting there, right?

As for the actual OCing, how do you go about it? Increment the Core until a "ceiling" is reached, tone it down a couple steps, and then repeat for shader then mem? I tried that out a bit on the 275 way back when, but it didn't give me the results I was looking for.

It's the same technique as overclocking any other card. Increment by 25MHz or so until you get artifacts, and then back it off until they go away.

The -AR has .95V,-TR .91v. That could vary according to the GPU and not the warranty though if you read the Afterburner/Unwinders thread at Guru3D. If so then the -TR is actually a better chip.
Those are the voltages of my GPU's not neccesarily the default voltages. The -TR barely made 700 core and the -AR reached 740. But 700 with .91v I imagine is pretty good.
