Yup. That's 1/2 the reason I RMA'd my card. Newegg doesn't have any more though, so I'm guessing I'll get a refund instead of a replacement.

Yeah I had to create a custom fan profile in Afterburner to skip the 51% to 69% range entirely. I have it set so that up to 60C, it'll have 50% fan. Between 60C to 80C it's 70% fan. At anything higher, it's 100% fan. So far with this profile I don't hear the fan clicking anymore, but there should be a better solution than this

**** that!

This is exactly how I broke my fan. I tried to adjust it a little while it was on, fingers touched the fan, blades flew into my face narrowly missing my eye.

so what are the max voltages you guys are running for 24/7?
I know 1087 is supposed to be the max, but what's the fun in that ?

Once you have the BIOS you want and a bootable USB flash drive or floppy disk with nvflash on the drive/disk, the flashing process is actually extremely simple:
  1. Boot from the USB flash drive or floppy disk
  2. Type nvflash --eraseeeprom (that's pronounced "erase 'ee' p-rom")
  3. When prompted, press 'y' to confirm
  4. Type nvflash -4 -5 -6 biosname.rom (although, due to the 6.3 filename format, make sure you rename all BIOS files you use to just 6 characters. This keeps everything simple)
  5. Once you've confirmed that you do, in fact, want nvflash to do this, it will bring you back to the drive letter prompt.
  6. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del, and boot into your OS normally

wait, im supposed to wipe my butt?
Then use this page to grab BIOS files of your choice:

Not really. I upgraded from the EVGA 680i SLI to the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P which meant I went from PCI-E 1.0 to 2.0. At that time, I had a GTX 260 but the gaming performance felt identical after that motherboard upgrade.

I'm sitting at 1.000V, rock stable at 715/1750 (volts and clocks forced via modded stock msi 470 bios), I've had zero issues with any game or test I've tried so far, these cards run cooler and make much less racket than my SLI 480's did, and there's really no difference in terms of the 'feel' of any game I've played so far. Sure, benchies are down a bit, but ... gameplay pretty much seems exactly the same, so ... no complaints.

Less noise, less heat, just as good of performance from a practical standpoint ... and when all's done I'm going to recoup about $250 from selling the 2 480's, so ...

With all the talk of troubles, I just wanted to go on record here on this thread and say ... two of these cards, unlocked, in SLI, with proper clocks and voltages set through the bios ... is a SWEET setup. I'm very happy with it, and having no issues at all except that the top card gets a lot warmer than the bottom card. But that's to be expected with coolers like these.

Two MSI GTX465 GE Twin-Frozr II cards for $259.99 shipped, and flashed to 470's, was a deal made of pure win in my book ... thanks to TwoCables for starting his 'quest' thread, otherwise I mighta missed the chance to get this killer setup

Oh yeah, and one other thing ... I've never enjoyed looking through the window of my case nearly as much as I do now ... these cards are hands-down the sickest looking pair of cards that have ever graced my rig (and there's been a LOT of them over the years).
hehe you're welcome!

Anyway, you took the words right out my mouth: I couldn't be happier with my Golden Edition too. I mean, not only from the value and performance standpoint of turning it into a 470, but also because this card is full of bling and looks fantastic through the window!

Regarding the maximum voltage: I think it's too early for us to be able to provide a definitive answer.

Max safe for 24/7 on air cooling is 1.087. Personally, imo if you have the right temps, I would say 1.15 is fair game.

This is on stock of course, if you are on water... 1.2

Opinions are fine, especially educated ones. But I think actual experience with this card is still going to be superior. I mean, I don't see any true proof that 1.087V is the maximum safe voltage. I also don't see any proof that 1.15V on air is safe either, even if the temperatures are low. I mean, there's a lack of evidence because it's still kind of early in the game.
