Not sure on exact brand/model, but its the one that came with this one:

750W

The PSU in that case might be ok, so I won't suspect that the PSU is having trouble keeping things stable...

Can you select voltages higher than 1.087?

That is the max, I have a feeling my card is bricked/faulty.

I'm thinking about just going back to 465 and returning it.

Maybe.

Not every 465 can be stable as a 470. However, some people found a sudden improvement in stability by trying other BIOSes available. So, I don't know.

Hmm, so I flashed it back to 465.. and it runs Kombustor fine with no crashes.
Looks like I need to find a better working 470 Bios or my Afterburner settings were off.

I tried the Bios that came with the EXP_465.rar file, Asus, and EVGA.
While trying Max voltage with stock clock speed and with higher.

I am resurrecting this thread because I have a problem with flashing my MSI Golden GTX465 to a GTX470. The latest DOS and Windows versions of NVFLASH do not have an erase eeprom option. I used the Windows version of NVFlash to flash my BIOS to an MSI GTX470 one I got from mvtech. Everything appeared to go fine, and I even installed the latest beta Nvidia drivers. However the extra shaders and memory are not unlocked according to GPU-Z. It does show GTX470 instead of GTX465 now for the card name though. And, NVFLASH -verify confirms that the card's BIOS is now the GTX470 one. During the flash process the onscreen messages indicated that my existing profiles were preserved so I suspect that may be the problem.

So, does anyone know of a version of NVFlash for Windows with an erase option? Or is there another solution to this problem?

I recommend just using the version linked in the original post of this thread even though they said "Use the latest".  I mean, if NVFLASH has been changed this much, then the best answer is to use the older version in this thread's OP.

Yes, it turns out that the last version of NVFlash for Windows that has the --eraseeeprom switch is v5.105.

You can download the copy I used from http://www.cloudnator.com/files/78ca11d6/NVFlash%2Bv5105.zip

And, it turns out that erasing the EEPROM before flashing it with the GTX470 BIOS is the key.

You also DON"T have to boot to DOS to flash the BIOS with this version. Just erase and flash from Windows, and then reboot back into Windows.

So, now I have an MSI Golden GTX470 instead of a GTX465.
