Best advice for you. Don't lose the back up of the original bios, and back up the back up after you've backed up that back up.

You can pencil mod the memory voltage though.

Unless I'm somehow misinformed, how would a backup of my bios do any good when I need to RMA my card?

Can't flash back bios on a broken card, can't receive warranty with altered bios.
I guess I'll jolt down bios voltage as one of the things to look for when buying a card next time

Well for one if your card still works enough to where you can flash back to the stock BIOS, then it pays to back up your stock BIOS. I've seen cards that are screwed up with lines going all over the screen that can still be flashed, most screwed cards behave badly under stress and/or gaming, not in DOS.

If you are worried about having a modded BIOS on a broken card then don't do it, you knowingly take that risk! I was an idiot and RMA'ed my GTX 480 forgetting to flash back to the stock BIOS, it had my voltage modded BIOS installed and they still sent me a new card!

Why wouldn't you just use NibiTor and raise the max voltage on your stock bios? It modifies your bios. If you did have to send it in, I doubt they are going to plug it into a computer and thoroughly search it for the max voltage.
And as Systemlord said, if it's too dead to boot into DOS, they can't tell the BIOS is modded, because the card won't boot. lol

Well I'm sold, thanks guys.

I guess I'll take a look at NibiTor and hope its not too complicated.

If you look back at this post a few pages, I posted exactly how to do it using NibiTor and GPU-z. PM me if you want.

Already flashed, but thanks for the heads up.

Anyways, I can only seem to get 855 core on 1.115v, but I can do 800 perfectly on 1.050
post #748 of 926
855 is pretty damn good for a GTX 470 on stock cooling. What can you get your memory to? Getting your memory faster will show a huge performance gain over just having a fast core.

I'm trying to do nvflash with my gtx 470 but when I do it says, "ERROR: No NVIDIA display adapters found."

Also, in Nibitor it tells me "Can't start driver: 1275" when I try to select "Read Bios."

What am I doing wrong?

Nhibitor I think you have to use in windows xp. At least thats what worked for me when I got that error.

I couldn't flash from a memory stick through dos either. It would not see my card. In xp I just put nvflash+the bios in a folder on the c drive, ran cmd.exe and used nvflash through there. Process was quick and painless like this.
