I don't know what the hell was wrong with my PC, but yea now that I check on my laptop again the 465 GE is in stock at microcenter! Just hope that the ones they have unlock. Wondering if it's worth it to order online and save $15 or get one at the store.. Maybe since they aren't sealed I can check it in person

You'll be able to see it from the box. It's written somewhere with the UPC label together with the S/N and everything so you don't need to open it.

That would be awesome and really speed up my Maya productions not to mention photoshop and the other apps that would benefit.

Also I'm sure this has been asked and answered many times over but what is the stablest bios to use with this card. would it be the msi 470 frozr's, evgas or a custom one. I have tried to comb through most of this thread but 310+ pages is a lot to climb through so as of today which is the best?
It can depend. The best thing to do is experiment as it can be different from one card to another.

cool thanx TwoCables

I think I'll start with the MSI 470 frozr bios first and go from there
post #3174 of 5083
I'm having no issues with the Grunion's 1.21v modified bios. Seems to be pretty random as to what works on whos card.
In progress.

I got my second 470 in, its a so so clocker, does 800/1850 @ 1.087
post #3176 of 5083
argh did I mention that im getting the fan noise? yeah well lets see how long I can go without tossing one of my cards out of the window.

Also, when you say it got as high as 73°C, do you mean while folding? If that's the highest it got, then that's very safe (and probably pretty much normal for this card with 55% fan speed).

I currently have the same BIOS you have, but I ended up with a stock VID of 1.100V (which I have not yet changed). I overclocked just the core to 800, found it to be unstable in EVGA OC Scanner, and I eventually settled on 765 which seems to be about my personal maximum. So, I have an overclock of 765/1530/1848 using 1.100V. I used a fan speed of 100% while running EVGA OC Scanner, and the highest temperature I saw happened to be about 70°C.

Regarding the smell: that's normal. I smelled it too, but as long as it's not a burning smell, then everything is fine - especially with a cool temp of 73°C (it's cool for an overclocked GTX 470 under full load).



I'm currently running OC Scanner now currently at 8 minute mark.
Current settings: 800/1600/1848 @ 1.075v using EVGA precision.

I abandoned Afterburner since I find it too hyped up when it comes to fan controls and since it's showing EVGA as product code then might as well use the same utility.

So far it's on a 75c peak with 50% fan speed. Didn't bother to put the fan speed to 100%.


I'll report back after 2 hours when it's done - already seeing 1 artifacts but I'm not concerned with it.

Guys,
Earlier i have told that two 465 GEs that i have bought were series 02XX and unfortunatly not unlockable.. so i have 5 more days for returning them without an excuse but i dont know what to do now..
Do anybody know if there are other models which can unlock??(other than PNY and Point of View) when i look at the back of the boards of all the gtx 465s in newegg, i realized that these 4 in the picture are exactly same as unlockable 465 GE's(hence the 470). Am i missing something here because other than PNY, i didnt hear of gigabyte, sparkle or zotac models ever being unlocked.
Could those 3 have the required transistors on the back and not the actual mem chips in the front (that doesnt make sense i think). if they are unlockable i will change my un-unlockable GE with one of those.. please enlighten me.Attachment 170639

Also the transistors in the red boxes dont exist in the non-upgradable models just like my GE..

That sucks man. I thought all of these GEs were unlockable. Check with the nearest microcenter in your area. I would return those cards if that's the case and will just get two 460s. The PNYs are unlockable but not those from newegg coz I've heard the last person who wrote the review said he got the blue PCB. I'm not sure with those at Microcenter.

But the reason for using Afterburner is it allows you to adjust the voltage whereas Precision doesn't. So, I recommend only using Afterburner.

Wow, that's not bad at all. However, this temp is awfully close to the point where the heat could cause instability (and/or artifacts). So for testing, I do recommend 100% fan speed since normal use won't create this much heat.

Unfortunately, 1 artifact after just 8 minutes is probably cause enough to either raise the voltage or adjust the clocks to increase stability.
