For those who asked...

Step-by-Step Unlocking Guide for GTX465 Golden Edition

1. Download the Flash Pack here.
This pack includes a backup of the stock 465 ROM in .rom form instead of .bin. Also includes grunion's "Best Performing 470 ROM capped to 1.15v. This is a very solid BIOS with a decent voltage limit to prevent damage to your card, while still allowing some nice OC's.
2. Install GPU-Z.
3. Install HP USB Storage Format Tool.
a. Insert USB Drive.
b. Start HP USB Storage Format Tool.
c. Select the appropriate USB in the drop down menu.
d. Select FAT32 as the File System.
e. Select Quick Format.
f. Check the box for "Create a DOS Startup Disk."
g. Browse to the "USB Image w7" folder and select it.
4. Navigate to the download pack location.
5. Open the "USB Image w7" folder.
6. Copy autoexec.bat from the "USB Image w7" folder to the USB drive.
7. Copy the S465.rom and 470.rom file to the flash drive.
8. Copy the nvflash.exe and CWSDPMI.exe files to the flash drive.
9. Reboot your computer and enter the boot menu (F8, typically) Or set the BIOS boot order to boot from USB Removeable Device.
10. Boot from USB Drive.
11. nvflash.exe will automatically boot and prompt you to update the firmware.
12. Press 'n' or any other key to skip the firmware update.
13. When you are looking at a flashing cursor in the DOS prompt, type
Code:
nvflash --eraseeeprom
14. If you have more than 1 card, keep erasing eeprom until all cards have been erased
15. Now type:
Code:
nvflash --list
16. You will be presented with an index of the cards in your system (the number on the left in () is the index number.
17. Now type the following to proceed with the flash:
Code:
nvflash --index=0 -4 -5 -6 470.rom
18. You should be presented with a message indicating success.
19. If you have more than one card, repeat the flash for the index of the second or third card
20. Power off your computer by holding the power button and boot into Windows.

You have now flashed your GTX465 to a full 470!

EDIT: Added necessary line of code to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file stored in the "USB Image w7" so that it can simply be copied without adding anything to the file.

Also added GPU-Z to the Flash Pack.

If you cannot see AUTOEXEC.BAT or the ROM files, please be sure to view Folder Options in Windows Explorer and check "Show all hidden files, folders, and drives" as well as uncheck "Hide protected OS files."

+1

EDIT: the power button usually looks like this



for people who haven't seen it before.
HAHAHAHA! Hey man, some people were asking for step-by-step walkthroughs so I did them a favor. It's fool-proof now and greatly improves on the poorly worded guides around already.

Btw, did everyone use the rom included in the rom pack? Anyone try using the Asus or MSI bios so we can tweak voltage?
You don't need any special BIOS to tweak the voltage. The BIOS in the pack that I uploaded is a tweaked GTX480 BIOS that allows voltage manipulation and is very solid for this unlock. If it isn't what you want eventually, it is a great place to start.

Thanks for the effort, it was great to have everything consolidated.

Nice, didn't know that's what it was. Also didn't know you could use GTX 480 bios for these lol.

why are there so many steps? And why does people insist on recreating the wheel with the autoexec.bat file?

There are so many steps because the existing guides are sloppy and unclear, even to some seasoned OC'ers. The last time I flashed a BIOS, it was with a floppy, so I wanted to be sure nobody could get confused.

Also, the autoexec.bat is just there as a fail safe, am I right? I simply added the lines to it so that it could be copied over directly. It only adds one step.

This guide isn't meant to be the end-all, be-all for everyone on OCN, just the guys that are new to the process. At least I didn't create a new thread for it
