Doesn't NibiTor make all this kinda useless? I'm kinda curious as to why everyone is ignoring that simple solution.

I see...so if for example he was hosting EVGA's OC scanner which is owed by EVGA, that would be wrong. I'm glad that is cleared up.

You're correct. However people like simple and the simpler, the more they like it. I never did find the simple concise guide I posted on the EVGA forum some time ago that chatch15117 claimed I stole from here. That is quite an accusation to make with nothing to back it. I doubt I'll see an apology.

I started this in April, when nibitor was sill asking for bios files to analyze(see first page). Back then, it was just me and a hex editor. Fast forward a few months and nibitor was released only to members that donated $25.

Now nibitor is released and supports every card for free.

Version 5.7 is the latest. You can find the fermi voltage change option under the tools menu.

This thread isn't as concise because it contains not only the stock BIOS files(so you can flash back to the original before RMA), but files for brands other than EVGA.

I didn't want to make 16 threads for every different brand card for the 460/465/470/480.

Just to clarify, to unlock voltage cap on my GTX465, I downloaded the OVEVGA470 and I should flash it from dos?

Cheers,
Cory.

Sorry to ask you as you probably have had this question asked repeatedly for many months now, but is the a very simply step by step preferably a visual guide on how to edit and/or flash the BIOS to allow 1.21 volts on the GTX480? My 480GTX is buzzing (around the mosfets/VRM's) at 890MHz core using EVGA's OC scanner, I am guessing the buzzing sound is a card starving for voltage. I want to thank you for an excellent program for all of us overclocking community!

Thanks, Systemlord.

@cdolphin: Yes, use Nvflash to flash it from dos. Using the 470 bios could brick you card though, so make sure you have an extra VGA to flash it back.

@Systemlord: Buzzing around the VRM's can mean a lot of things. Anyway, here's a basic guide:

Download GPU-z and dump your bios using the little button beside the "Bios Version" box. Now, download NibiTor. Run it and select "File" then "Open BIOS" and select the BIOS you just dumped.
Now select "Tools" then "Fermi voltage". A new window will pop up. At the very top will be a box that says "Limit". Click that box and set it to whatever you want the max voltage to be.
Here's the important part!! Make sure you save the bios under a different name now. You want to make sure you have your original bios in case of RMA's. I recommend saving it as "1.ROM".
Now start at Step 3 of this guide, and instead of "470.ROM" put in your "1.ROM" we created earlier.

I have followed the guide, "How to flash a GTX465 to GTX470" and am stuck on Step 3 "Making a bootable flash drive". I have successfully saved and loaded my BIOS S480.ROM into Nibitor. I am stuck at, "Specify the location of DOS system files", there nothing to select except, "My Computer", "C: Drive", "E: Drive" ect... I consider myself an "extreme beginner" with computers and have come this far on my own (), the download package only included the Nvflash program, can you please assist me on what to do next?

Thank you and I appreciate anyone who can help!
