How can they charge $60 for a 12 hour trial of Sc2, when you can just buy the came that comes with 2 of the trails for the same price...?

Anyways, bought this card from OCN member, comes in this week I hope. Quick question though, what's the deal with PCI-E 2.0? I don't think I have it as my mobo is a few years old. What will this cause? Performance loss?

Title says it all. I just switched back to the stock bios, and the fan operation is back to how it was before.

I suspect that MSI wanted the reviewers of the twin-frozr II cards to be all ZOMGWOWLOOKATTHESETEMPS!!! and not report that it's because the profile is wildly more aggressive than reference.

Not that this is a bad thing, I'm sure many will be delighted about this observation and rush to use this bios. But that will not be me. Unnecessary noise is really not my thing, and these already run way cooler than my 480's did, so ...

Anyways, here's the proof:

EDIT: I should also add that when I did tests w/fan speed held constant, the temps were exactly identical between bioses.

Heaven maxed out, running on (slightly modded) Twin Frozr II bios, auto fan.




Heaven maxed out, running on (slightly modded) reference MSI 470 bios, auto fan.



The latter, stock bios profile is much more my ... um ... speed

They're making you pay $60 for a trial? Tell em to shove it. So I guess from the $30 restocking fee, the card you returned had nothing wrong with it.

It doesn't fully flash to a 470, but worked fine as a 465, hence returning it for another one. My other 465 flashes to a 470, so I want another to SLI, which was the entire purpose of ordering 2 - to have 2x GTX 470 GEs in SLI for $520... But of course my luck has to kick in and screw up everything. Probably will end up having to pay more and get an actual N470GTX TFII to SLI now.

Now I'm only using stock clocks and the stock BIOS this card came with. It seems like I always get artifacts when it is unlocked, but now I'm getting them in every game I try (Crysis, Metro 2033, CoP/SoC, Dirt2, BFBC2). Is there any way this can be fix? There has to be something I can do.

Are the cards getting sufficient power? Are you running them with the molex adapters or with straight 6 pins? Few things to consider I suppose
