Although I'm 99% sure that if GPU-Z 'says' you have a 470 now, with all the appropriate stats, that it means you do have a 470, you should do some before/after tests just to make sure ... you should get about a 25% perf increase after the flash on Vantage Perf Mode GPU Score.

To be honest I have no Idea why it says that. I have tried different Drivers, and switching the cards around but no matter what the second card no matter which one it is says the same thing ( am not too worried about it though).

It for sure is a GTX 470 wink.gif I was able to do quite a few game benchmarks last night (Until the Water Pipes broke in the basement ;( .. I have been fixing them all morning and day and Have not slept yet) I did not record any benchmarks of any kind when it was a GTX 465 and just ran it in SLi and did some gaming until my curiosity had the better of me.

From what i have seen so far I am very pleased with it's performance, I also spent a good deal of time Overclocking it and ran out of temperature cushion before I ever ran out of card lol. I made it 8 minutes in furmark ( I do not consider 8 minutes stable in any GPU test) at 900mhz Core but eventually it was the temps that were to high.. not artifacts. The highest realistic everyday overclock as far as I am concerned is 860 core as it just needs 1.037mv.. any higher and I need to be at 1.087. Still though not bad on air.

I can flash it back to a GTX 465.. but honestly I really don't see a need to do so. Even a GTX 465 is more than enough to enjoy awesome gaming at nice levels.. not extreme levels but Nice and fun.

Yeah I had tried the other card but that one is a True 465 and just 8 mem chips ( You can tell the 2 apart when looking at the back of the cards side by side. Right now the 465 is just being used as a Dedicated PhysX card with the 470 wink.gif am really enjoying the setup!

The card that unlocked does indeed have 10 chips and is a True 470 but for whatever reason they put the 465 bios and stickers on it lol. I will for sure take pictures ( they will be bad pics though ) and finish doing more benchmarks (games, and Synthetic) some time after I wake up lol I need sleep and Extremely tired lol.

I think 465s SLI is still better than 470 + 465 physx.

Where did you buy it?

EDIT: HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THE EXTRA MEMORY CHIPS WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE YOUR CARD APART
gtx465unlocking.jpg
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.

this isn't always true.....

sadly i had a gigabyte 465... which looked like it had all the ram chips from the back.... but on closer inspection... it didn't....

Congrats on the unlock!
