MSI GTX465 Twin Frozr II Golden Edition Owners Club - Page 504

post #5031 of 5083
I have one of these cards and I have not yet unlocked it, it is one of the 2500 produced unsure of exact number but I need to unlock it. Once unlocked I assume for me it will be more than enough with a decent 470 overclock to run the games fluid that I would like to play

Is this regarded as the best bios out still in this post?
http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/789983-msi-gtx465-twin-frozr-ii-golden-135.html#post10303918

A few other questions once unlocked what is the best NV driver to run and what is a good voltage increase to give it off the bat or am I better off to just run it at stock 470 clocks and see how it works before fiddling with a voltage adjustment. Been a while since I have tinkered , shatty weather is here and I wanna game again

That bios is a little aggressive on the memory clock IIRC. I would start with the regular MSI TwinFrozr II GTX 470 bios. Then OC your card to wherever you like/find stable, and edit your bios to those speeds and flash that. I, or somebody else on the forum can assist with editing the bios if needed.

Not sure of you were planning on using those instructions in that post, but you don't absolutely need to boot off USB drive or floppy. There is a version of nvflash for windows you can rub from CMD prompt. Then just do what the rest of that post said regarding nvflash commands, and reboot. Either way works, I just find it easier to do out in windows than messing with a USB drive.

I'd just go with the latest driver 285.62 driver, or whatever, assuming you want to play new games.

As far as voltage goes, that depends on your VID really, take note of it before you flash, that way you can have a good starting base. Up to 1.0875v is probably fine for these cards with the cooler it has. If you want to OC higher than that gets your, you will have to modify your bios, or use a modded one. Just keep an eye on the temp.

I would use Heaven, 3d Mark 11, and some DX11 games to test stability. I also use OC scanner or occt sometimes to get a tough idea on stability, but in the end it comes down to playing games.

Have fun and good luck.

Thanks for the feedback, I am just looking at flashing it to a 470 GTX bios, I will be running at stock clock speeds for a while to see how it acts before I start oclocking it. Now to go find the bios, I also may flash within windows as suggested, time to tinker.........

What is the recommended software tool for playing with the voltage or viewing what stock voltage is, Kombuster or the Afterburn tool? man been a while for me

Afterburner is probably the most popular software to use. You can just view voltage in GPU-z also.

Well one of my fans just went out on the top card. I have never had to replace anything on my PC that required sending something back to the manufacturer. Is that what I need to do in this case? Will they still except it if it has been flashed to 470? Thanks guys, it has been awhile since I have been on this forum:D

Well I tried everything I could do to fix the fan myself. What kind of fan can I buy to replace one that does not work? It spins fine when I use my fingers to turn it so I am assuming there is an electrical issue. If I RMA it do I need to flash it back to a 465 first? How much are these cards selling for now? I may just sell them both and get some new cards. ANY input would be nice. Thanks in advance. thumb.gif

I used to have a MSI GTX465 Twin Frozr II Gold Edition #1430 and #499 they both unlocked. The #1430 was brand spanking new had to RMA it because the fan bearing made noise and the idiots at MSI ruined it, they didn't know how to take the fan out and bent the freaking shield right over the bad fan. All I wanted from them was a stinking fan under warranty or for sale but no you have to return it and they blamed it on the shipping company and charged me $60, I claimed the $60 back from UPS but it was a long BS process. So they sent me the #499 not brand spanking new condition but still worked good. Wasn't happy just sold it and upgraded to a faster card that didn't dump heat in the case, I had them from 8/5/10-1/5/11. I forgot how loud they got but it had a modded GTX470 Bios and ran cooler/quieter and faster than any regular GTX470. Almost got it stable running at GTX480 speed but it just ran too hot and fans were too loud trying to keep it cool I think I was at 685/900 at the end, essentially this card is a GTX470 with better cooling for overclocking. I really like unlockable cards. smile.gif

#1430 RIP

Checking the weight/pounds of the golden brick its just under 2 1/2 pounds.

#499 Yes I asked them if it unlocked or I'd be very mad.gif


When I went for the ASUS 6950 I didn't like the fact that the Memory bus width was 256-bit vs 320-bit GTX465 when unlocked.

Thanks for the info silencer. I am just not sure how they will treat my RMA as I have reapplied TIM and of course the card is flashed. I am amazed how well just one of these cards is holding up in games like Skyrim and other GPU intensive games though.

1. I would look for a pair of fans online and get measurements but we still don't know the speed of the fans, make sure it screws down in the same pattern. I'd check the electrical fan pins
2. I did, but today I don't think it would matter because they aren't the fastest cards anymore.
3. About $200 if you could find any just like it.
4. Wait for the 7970's

I applied Artic Cooling MX-4 TIM on my 6950/Northbridge/Southbridge/Just not on CPU yet and it did drop temps significantly on my motherboard and about 2-3C on the GPU. As long as it is spread properly it should be ok, I don't see why they would remove it?

I liked the PhysX performance in Mafia 2 everything looked so vibrant.
