All you need to do this is the custom bios file that unlocks the card. It should be noted that not all gtx 465's can do this and to my knowledge it was limited to a select few that had all 10 memory chips. WOW isn't that demanding afaik, but you would most likely see some gain if the flash is successful for you

The easiest way imo would be to just flash it, run gpuz and stress test it. The problem is that it may be possible for the bios may not work meaning that you would have to blind flash or get another vid card to flash it

Suggest that just overclock it but not flash the Bios, almost all 465 now have only 8 memory chips, but if you confirm that it has 10 chips, just flash for it, but it would probably be unstable.

why would they put 10 ram chips and not make it a gtx 470?

It's called binning.

They felt that the silicon quality was not up to what's proper for a GTX470 performance, so they downgraded it and sold it as GTX465.

It will have the same performance but it will run slightly hotter than a normal GTX470.

Na, I think it will run the same as a 470.

It might be a "golden" 465 and be a full 470, or it can have faulty cores which when he unlocks them, will start crashing his GPU.
Its all a gamble.
