EVGA GTX 465SC unlocked to GTX 470 SC :)

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
So I had ordered another EVGA GTX 465 SC which arrived today to SLi.

I installed it and the Sli Bridge everything went well until trying to play a game.. turns out it was a voltage issue so I Broke out the Fermi Bios Editor and made some changes and all was good in the world lol. I was content but I just had to tinker ( I always do).

So for grins I flashed to another bios and noticed that I now had 448 shaders and thought to myself "this is Cool" as You don't hear about EVGA 465's unlocking..

That really got my curiosity up.. So I thought I would try a 470 bios off of techpowerUp .. I downloaded the bios and installed it on to my trusty flash drive and proceeded to Flash the card.

The Bios installed without a hitch so I rebooted and opened up GpuZ and couldn't believe what I saw lol

In the screen shot I have 2 GpuZ windows open.. the picture on the left is my first GTX 465 SC (with different bios) and the picture on the Right is my New GTX 465 SC err I Should say My New GTX 470 SC lmao. Today has turned out to be quite a surprise..



UPDATE :
Sorry I haven't posted anything about the card.. I have been trying different Bios's and found one that allows me to OC the Memory much much higher than the bios I used to unlock the GTX 465. I have purchased another EVGA GTX 465 SC from newegg and the New one is another GTX 470 . I took some photos of the card ( Bad Pictures and crappy camera) and noticed a couple differences between an Actual GTX 465 and and unlockable GTX 465 SC/470. Besides where the memory chips are/ are not the biggest and most obvious differences are stickers on the back of the cards. On the Actual/not unloackable GTX 465 SC there are White stickers all over the backside of the card with various information such as Bios version etc. and on the GTX 465 SC/470 unlockable cards there are No white stickers and all the info is imprinted on the PCB. Pay no attention to date on camera lol.. I do not bother to change it

The bios version that came on the cards are:

GTX 465 SC (Not unlockable) : 70.00.21.00.60

GTX 465 SC (Unlockable and on Both unlockable cards) : 70.00.21.00.04 "Printed on PCB"..Actual Bios on Card Varied


Here is a pick of the back of all 3 cards ( the top card is the 465 that cannot unlock and You can see all the white stickers).



This is a pic of the 465 that can not unlock (Memory area)



This is a pic of the new 465/470 that unlocks and is identical to the other 465/470 that unlocks (Memory area)



And finally a pic of all 3 cards (Top view)



I had done a Lot of benchmarks with my first unlocked card but as I changed bios's Performance changed for the better and will have to redo them all both in single and in SLi.

Wow, first time of hearing an unlocked EVGA 465.
Have you tried taking your card apart and see how many memory chips are there?

I have not taken the card apart and don't plan too.. I am however going to be doing lots of testing and will Post what I can get out of the card ( Just kinda busy at the moment).

I will Also take pictures to prove that this really did happen although I will apologize ahead of time for the quality of the pictures as my Camera is horrible and cheap lol but will do the best that I can

Ill go ahead and ask the question now so its on the first page..
Where did you buy it?

EDIT: HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THE EXTRA MEMORY CHIPS WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE YOUR CARD APART

If you indeed have all the memory chips, next ( you can go ahead and try to flash) OR take your cooler off and make 100% sure its a 470 . Look the the gpu IHS it should say GF100-275-A3, if its a 470.
