No, unless you find the card fails after flashing.

I plan on removing the heat sink on my card tonight to confirm that my card isn't going to unlock, so I can stop with the shenanigans and just buy a 470 lol

I only want this card if it unlocks. So if anyone is selling one of theirs on here, let me know! haha

In addition to what Cavi said, there might be some who will try to tell you that you can use GPU-Z or CPU-Z. But the only way to find out is by removing the heatsink. :/

Yes I am using Vantage. And I just realized that maybe it being DX10 may also have something to do with it?

But thanks for the heads up I will give that a shot and see if it makes a difference. But I still don't understand the low CPU score. Here's a screenshot. Files named accordingly.

From my perspective, you don't really need to dismantle your card. Just flash it and you'll find out if it unlocks after rebooting. Make sure you have extra card just in case it gets dicey.

Ok, opened my card up just now, and made a startling discovery:



Above you'll notice transistors in all memory chip spots, indicating all memory chips are present (the sticker I've left in tact, but the stick you can see is raised indicating transistors are present in the last spot). Unless I'm looking at it wrong... any input?

Annnnd...



A 275 chip. So by all indications, my card should unlock! Could this be an OC thing, vid thing, voltage thing? Should I re-install windows? I'm at my wits end! Hopefully now that I know all this though, I can get a breakthrough at some point.

Ideas?

At this point, this is all I have to say: put it back together, flash it to a 470 and get your game on!

Or, instead of gaming, overclock it!

Thus far, harder than it seems for me for some reason!

I'm heading out to meet my brother for some dinner/drinks, so I'll be back tonight to HOPEFULLY make some progress here...

At least this gave me the opportunity to put some IC7 on this thing

And at least now you know it's definitely a full-fledged GTX 470. All it needs now is a BIOS and a little bit of tweaking.

Your the one that gets black screens after flashing? How was the paist on the gpu? did it cover the chip or have any voids in the paist? Starting to think that one of the cores or memory chips is totaly trashed and giving you the black screens after flashing. Have you tryed the evga 470 "SC" bios?
