just wanted to inform you that 104 C is the maximum GPU temperature for the GTX 460.

I'm still having second thoughts about flashing my 460. Yeah as some stated this is not for a noob to tinker with, especially as the cost of screwing it up is a lot. What benefits are there anyway with upping the voltage? Higher clock speeds, thus higher performance?

exactly. and if you're a folder, that means higher ppd as well I've got mine up to 950 core right now, on stock air. Here's my gpu-z

So, is it okay for me to try flashing my card (same as yours - Galaxy 460 768mb) without any problems? I fear the temperature increase and I'm only on stock cooling plus a 120mm fan on the side panel. And if things go wrong, can I revert to stock?

Okay, I got mine working.

BETTER FLASHING METHOD!!!

1. Download Galaxy Xtreme Tuner HD Here

2. Once your card's been detected, click on the Magic BIOS tab. Agree with the prompt boxes.

3. Select the modded BIOS, and let the utility do its business. You will hear beeps during the process.

4. Reboot, and enjoy!

Hope this helps. IMO this is a much more intuitive tool especially for new overclockers who want more juice for their GTX 460 cards.

I think it should work for all cards. This thread has some people having Xtreme Tuner working on their cards from multiple brands:

Dosnt seem to be working for me, maybe I'm doing some thing wrong
MSi N460GTX twinfrozr II, 768MB. Currently OCed to 900/1800/1900 with factory BIOS.

Downloaded and installed... run.. Card is displayed at the top, click magic bios. Popup appears "this operation may blaa blaa blaa"... Click "ok"... Opens "Computer> Local Disc (C> Program Files> XtremeTuner HD

There are 2 files in there "Profile" and "sound" both of witch are empty, the options for files to open are .rom and .nvr, how ever neither file type is in there.

Any suggestions?


UPDATE

Fixed it. needed to unclock and restart.

voltages still revert back to 1087 even with the updated bios

*EDIT because I'm a moron!
works great! Adjust in nibitor, flash with xtreme... works great, quick and easy, provided your not a moron like me
