Very nice. What will you be pairing it with. I only ask because I bought a new rig to put this in as well (after my old mobo died)

Sorry if my question is noob but I just ordered this card and am looking to unlock it to a 470. However, what bios is the "best". I'm running a branded 500w PSU thus not looking to o/c in the near future. I'm running an i5-750 on a gigabyte p55a-ud3 and a 6600GT now... yeah my old pc broke down part by part.

Was thinking of using the MSI 470 bios found on techpowerup, will that work? Also, why did some people had issues with the flash not unlocking the 1280mb of ram, but instead ended up with 1024? I don't wanna make the same mistake.

Thanks for the advise.

You can have a look at this thread that I put together yesterday. I've linked a thread from here on OCN with many different 470 BIOS files.

The method used by BlahBlahBlah (noted in the thread I linked) appears to free up the extra video memory.

Agreed.

Also, a jump from a 6600GT will be so massive that you might even need the unlock

If you aren't doing any OC'ing right now I certainly wouldn't mess with any of the volt upping BIOS's I am sure any of the stock ones would work just fine.

I went with an Intel i5-750 build.

My 9800gx2 actually burned out so my brother had to pick up a 5770 for it or else I wouldn't have parted with my rig.

Answers from an owner to a few questions I've seen in this thread:

Places to buy:

I bought from Newegg, it arrived from CA to NY in 2 days from purchase.

I have heard Amazon is taking ages to ship.

NCIX has them in Canada, no idea on shipping.

Can you brick the card?

You can fail at flashing it, but you can revive the card by several methods

1 - Use another card to revive this one, by flashing again.
2 - Use onboard graphics to revive this one, by flashing again.
3 - Blind flash, writing an autoexec.bat to do the commands you want in a batch file in your USB drive.

Temps

This is my first Nvidia card in a long time, but from what I have read and understand about the GTX 4xx series, it runs very hot. This card with stock volts/clocks from the EVGA 470 SC BIOS that I flashed, with the voltage tweak, idles at about 35C @65% Fan, loads at about 60C. This card is rated up to 105C. That leaves a lot of room for more volts, and more clocks.

Noise

If any of you have had a Twin Frozr before, you can expect something about the same. The fans are very loud at 100% but they are pretty calm around 55-65%. They keep the card cool at those settings and it pretty much blends in with case and CPU fans at that level.

Price

I have seen this card fluctuate between 260 and 300 shipped at Newegg. I am not sure what they were trying to do but, I bought mine for 260 shipped at Newegg so I think that is a baseline price.

Flashing

Overall, the flashing process was easy. I am not new to computer so don't expect this to be easy if you are. I am willing to work with people and help walk them through the flashing process, but keep in mind, there are already 2-3 old guides, and 1-2 brand new guides. All you need can be found in one of the unlocking bundles, which will contain the HP Disk Format Utility, Nitbor, Nvflash, and possibly a Bios.

HP Disk Format Utility is used to make your USB boot disk.
Nitbor is a Bios editor that you can use to turn .bin files into .rom
Nvflash is the baseline program that is used for the flashing process.
The 470 Bios is what you need to unlock your card.

Disclaimer: Your card may vary. Flash at your own risk.

Feel free to PM me or respond here with any (intelligent) questions. Make sure to check the threads related to this topic (the owners thread, the unlock guides, etc) before asking me, but I will be happy to help if you can't figure things out.

Good luck folks and enjoy your new card.
