post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
i just unlocked my evga gtx 465 sc to a 470. i bought it from newegg a few weeks ago for 170 after rebate. black pcb 10 memory chips and 275 on the gpu. now i just need to get to overclocking it and then benchmark smile.gif

this post is for people out there with evga cards. everyone has said that they cant be unlocked; well i know for a fact that they can be.

gpuz470.jpg

i didnt take a screenshot of the before, sorry.

this was a brand new card from newegg, not an open box or refurb.

i tested it with the stock heatsink and it ran way too hot with a minor OC. maybe that is why they backed it off to a 465? it works well with my gelid icy vision though.

if anyone likes i could take pics of the card and the box. maybe it will help you unlock your evga 465gtx.

You are the first one to report an evga 465 being able to unlock, ttbomk. Now I've seen one person each reporting unlockable Asus and eVGA, in addition to the PoV, PNY, and MSI GE cards that we've known for awhile will work. Good to know thumb.gif

Congrats, btw.

i will say that i was somewhat hesitant to do it as i have never flashed a video card bios before, and on top of that people said they couldnt unlock. i have been out of "computers" for about 5 years or so and now i put together a new system and am loving it! i am really enjoying reading through this site as well. seems like a great bunch of people here.

Any chance of posting step by step screenshots with some instructions. I just bought the 465 and would love to get it to 470 status. Unfortunately my computer knowledge is rather limited.

hey man here is the topic that i used. it gives all the information needed. just read through all of the posts and you should be good. first of all you need 10 memory chips, and i would read on the actual gpu to make sure it is a "275". i did a lot of research and this post was the best for me. feel free to ask me any questions! the first thing i would try would be the asus 465 upgrade tool to see if you can unlock your shaders, that is where i started.

i just got back into computers about a month ago or so, so i would call myself an amateur, but i do plenty of research before taking things on. i learned to overclock my cpu (the 875k is really easy) quite fast and i got a pretty good overclock on it. the video card was a little bit more research as you have to create a bootable usb and such (it is all in the topic below).

There is a way to look at the resistors on the back where the memory chips should be, but I didn't know what exactly I was looking for. I just went ahead and opened mine up and was pleasantly surprised!
