^ This

If you're not fortunate enough to have Photoshop, then just use MS Paint or the Snippit tool.

To actually post them you can upload them to an image hosting website and then just copy the link in or you can click "Manage attachments" and upload it there.

Which unlocking guide are you using? I say you refer to kidwolf99s guide here

Just add this step:

12.5. Backup original bios using command

Code:
nvflash -b [bios_name].rom

I also suggest you check what voltage your card is running stock before flashing. This way you'll have an idea of what to set it at after flashing to avoid instability.

Good luck

PS Newegg sold their last card.

Oh, so then you're good. As long as the temps don't reach the 80s, you should be able to avoid instability caused by heat.

Not sure 80's is the problem. I had mine up to 88 before I fixed some airflow problems in my case. It was fine. I know some had issues above 85, but I'm betting it's a really small percentage.
In progress.

Alright, i'm back.. after much finagling with the USB and it's formatting i was able to use a different USB drive and get 'er done!

#1881 is now unlocked. Stock clocks on the 470 twin frozr II ROM.

So, what does one suggest for stability testing?

Depends on what you want. I just use Kombustor and the games I play. If it does good in those, then I say mission accomplished.

Congratulations! I really like that # as well

At first I was using Kombustor to test stability. However after some trial and error and doing some more research I found OCCT to be the most reliable stability test. A 10 min run in OCCT will determine whether or not the card is stable. It also checks for artifacts. OCCT is quick, doesn't stress your card for long periods of time, and most of all, is the most accurate.

But every card is different. Some of these Golden Editions can indeed handle higher temperatures than others, but it seems that the majority become unstable in the 80's.

Congratulations!!!

Everyone has their own opinion on stress testing. However, let's be sure about one thing: the more stress testing it can handle, the more stable it is. Or in other words: the more peace of mind you have about its stability.

Some excellent programs to use are:
  • Furmark
  • EVGA OC Scanner (but it only works for a BIOS that is EVGA-identifying). If you use this, then use these settings.
  • MSI Kombuster (but I haven't used it yet, so I can't field any questions about it)
  • OCCT

Of course, this needs to combined with real-world use as well.


Now, regarding Furmark, switch from "Benchmarking" to "Stability Test" so that it can run infinitely. Also, use "Displacement mapping" as well. For the resolution, you can try different ones, but of course you can also just stick it in full screen at your native resolution. The "MSAA Samples" is Multisamping Antialiasing. More is not always more stressful (more is not always better), so don't be afraid to leave it at None, or to use 2x or 4x.

Regarding EVGA OC Scanner: use the settings in the screenshot I linked above, and let it go for 2 full hours. It actually won't run any longer than that.

Regarding OCCT, the same rules for Furmark's MSAA apply for OCCT's Shader Complexity: more is not always better. Oh, and OCCT's test doesn't have a fun animation to watch. It's just a stationary image. The same thing is true for EVGA's OC Scanner: when using the settings I recommend (which were recommended to me by our resident experts here on OCN), it doesn't animate the iimage. It's kinda the same principle as ATiTool: when just watching ATiTool's "3D View", the furry cube animates. But when scanning for artifacts, it doesn't.
It's a computer!

I've finished running Furmark for 30 minutes with Xtreme Burning Mode, Displacement Mapping, and Post FX enabled, 1920x1080 (fullscreen), and no MSAA because some say that no AA is more stressful. The max temp was 77C with 70% fan speed in a 76F room and my overclock is 800/1600/1800, 1037mv. There were no visible artifacts; no weird lines, tearing, odd colors, etc, so can I say my overclock is stable? I've been running all my games fine for 2 weeks now (Crysis, Metro 2033, Bioshock 2, Stalker CoP/CS, SC 2, and DOW 2) and there have been no artifacts or crashes. I ran Furmark before, but I had Xtreme Burning Mode disabled and 16xMSAA with temps at 74C.
