Not difficult. You just need to use Nibitor and make sure you're changing the right clock domains. I don't think it's possible to alter the BIOS's fan profile through Nibitor, though, so you'll probably just have to stick with Afterburner to do that.

Thanks, that's a bummer about the fan profile, as this one seems noisy around 50-60% i'd like it to just skip that range, but I guess afterburner will have to do.

Is there anything I can try to fix the noisy fan other than adjusting the speed?

Does this mean you're selling one of them? Because I'd love to talk to you about that if you are

Stupid non-unlocking 1494

Then again I still have to try a few things posted earlier when I get home!

The fan noise is usually a result of it clicking against the shroud that surrounds the fans. If you carefully bend the shroud so that it has more space between the fans and the shroud, you could solve the ticking noise. You could also remove the shroud altogether... that would "fix" it.

Those are very impressive overclocks. Did you happen to notice the FPS in Kombustor for each of those clocks? Really want to know the difference you saw between the last two clocks. When I was overclocking it felt as if memory had a significant effect on gaining more FPS.

On a side note, did anyone else notice the clocks being set when using nvidiaInspector? If I set the Core to 800MHz even, nvidiaInspector will show actual core speed of 797MHz or something like that. Until I push it up to about 805MHz it all of a sudden jumps up and reads 810MHz. It's as if there are 'ranges' the core wants to be within. I was using this as a guide for overclocking and am wondering if anyone else is or noticed this.


I didn't look on the fps in kombustor when I was running it but it's really good to know and make a comparison chart or screenshots between those settings that I had.

I'll do it tonight and will report back here with screenshots.

I noticed that on nvidia inspector but I get higher clocks though. I was getting 810 and was getting 408 whenever it downclocks.

LOL, I'd wait until you get home until you abandon all hope for your card. Hopefully a new day, and a new BIOS will get yours unlocked.

After doing some testing with OCCT this new one doesn't seem stable at the default .975V with the 470Twin Frozr BIOS. It doesn't crash or anything, just when running the "error-check" option it detects errors. In fact I had to bump the vcore up to [edit] 1.05V to get it to pass OCCT at stock speeds, which is worse than my #1761 card.

At the end of the day, am I happy it unlocks to 470? Yes, very. Am I dissapointed that this wasn't a "better" card than my #1761? Yes, very. For the price I paid for this card it's still a great deal on a 470 with a sweet cooler.

Right now, I do not need SLI, so to finally answer your question, yes I will be selling this one #1410 to somebody if they want it. My neighbor has all ready expressed interested in the card, but I'm not sure how serious he was. If nobody wants it I'll just return it to newegg, I think I can within 30 days, I'll have to double check.

Cool, thanks, I'm not sure how I'd go about "carefully" bending the shroud, lol, I'd probably scratch the ***** out of it. I'll investigate this avenue though.

Well I made a custom voltage bios and set it at 1.05V and now have #1410 running stable as a stock gtx470.

I tried doing a little overclocking, and could only push it up to 700 mhz @ the max safe voltage of 1.087, so it's definately not an OC'er. Bummer.

Ok, back with an update. Long story short, nothing really worked. But I am coming across a screen I've never seen before. I see this screen after I flash, reboot, find that it's not loading windows, and then reboot into usb drive. This is what comes up:



Should I say yes to this? I feel like saying yes to this would be very bad for some reason, but I'm not sure why.

Thoughts? Am I dead in the water?

Are you running SLI? That optional command -index=0 is being used only if you have 2 or more cards installed.

It's not loading windows because it's booting up to your flash drive. Removing it should resolve the issue and should go straight to windows.

Anyways, that warning messages should be normal.

When you get a chance; watch this video, Linus made it simpler to flash these GEs.
