MSI GTX465 Twin Frozr II Golden Edition Owners Club - Page 93

post #921 of 5083
It's official: I am completely psyched about getting this card soon! I woke up a few hours ago after spending over 12 hours in bed trying to get some sleep, but instead I kept only getting 2-3 hours of sleep at a time! And every single time I had a dream, it had something to do with this Golden Edition GTX 465!

But I feel like I had enough sleep anyway, so it's all good!

yeah I laid in bed two days ago for 2.5 hours before getting <2 hours of sleep. I really have to get away from this computer stuff, its killing me. Annnnd its ticking my wife off. but thats ok, her wanting to kiss chicks ticks me off too so.....more computer stuff!

numbers 399 & 708
Awesome! I've added your numbers and unlock status to the OP. Maybe you could do another vantage run with your CPU overclocked so we can eliminate the possibility of a CPU bottleneck.

I've followed every guide I can find and been through every page on this thread. No matter which BIOS I flash on the card, I get the same results each and every time. After flash and reboot, I get the windows prompt about the drivers reinstalling etc etc then restart. After restart I open GPU-Z and have the full gtx 470 specs. Ok so all is well up to now. I try playing SC2 and within 2 minutes of opening the game and naving through the menu, I either get CRAZY amounts of artifacts or just a straight lock-up.

I'm running a 700w PSU and only one of the cards. Again, just to be clear, I've followed nearly every guide I could find about unlocking the 465 to the letter. The card flashes just fine and I can reboot into windows. Only after trying to play a game (BFBC2 or SC2) I get either a complete lockup or just crazy amounts of artifacts at which point I ctrl+alt+delete and close the game down.

Am I missing something here? Shouldn't the BIOS be handling the volts and clocks for me?

P.S - My card number is #1499 (even though I ordered nearly a week ago before I even came across any of these threads :[ )

If the chips were binned lower and consequently flashed as 465s, then they may need a little voltage bump. That's OK though because the heatsink should be more than adequate.

On 6th of August GTX465 twinfrozr was 259USD on Newegg but now its 309US. I guess i'm not buying it.
Cheapest GTX470 (ASUS) on newegg is 289USD.

I concur w/Frosty. The logical next step would be to use afterburner to bump the voltage up a bit. Maybe try 1.013V or so, see if they stabilize. Although admittedly I'd be a little disturbed if I had to use a utility just to get my card to run at stock clocks. If that's the case I'd look into upping the VID through the bios so that the card will be stable w/o having to use AB. Not 100% sure that's possible, I've asked on this board about this like 20 times now, and nobody has given me an answer. I'm betting probably NC would know if it can be done though.

It may also unfortunately be the case that there actually are some of these cards that won't safely unlock.

If it was me I'd tell her she's not allowed to kiss chicks unless you also get to be there, with full 'participation' rights

I'd recommend doing exactly as brettjv says. Modify the BIOS so that you don't need to rely on a utility to stabilize your card. However, before you do this you should make sure that bumping the voltage does actually stabilize the card. You should be fine all the way up to 1.087v (the max safe voltage).

If that does work, I'm pretty sure you can tweak the BIOS using NiBiTor, found here: http://www.mvktech.net/index.php?opt...leinfo&id=3208

That tool should fully support the GTX 400 series.

running furmark and no problems.
all games are stable, but vantage keeps giving me problems ever since I changed pci-e slots...go figure
realized I never updated to Vista SP1, maybe with the newer cards that's what I need, so gona try that
