SLI 470 and a 480 flashed to 470 - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Ok I thinks I got it.

You were going to sell your MSI 480 and buy a native 470 to run with your current flashed 465. Or you were going to flash the 480 and use it as a 470 (?)

I think you should sell your 465 and get another 480 to run with the MSI -much bigger improvement over 2x sli 470. I'm not even sure your flashed 465 would work w/ a 470 in sli.

Try it, back up the original BIOS. If all else fails revert back to the original BIOS.

I highly doubt this will work, but it's pretty easy to try flashing the 480 to the 470 bios and seeing if it'll SLI. Worst case you brick it (doubtful) but you have a spare card to do the flash-back with, so ...

Like I say, I doubt it'll work because there's just too many specs on a 480 that are different from a 470, and I don't think replacing the bios is going to 'trick' the NV driver into thinking it's a 'real' 470. And even if it did, there's no guarantee SLI would work right with cards that are so physically different ...

BTW, two 470's in SLI if OC'd to 480 clocks will destroy a 480 ... to the tune of like +60-75%. With plenty of OC'ing headroom to spare

I was given it by MSI, so I would feel off for selling it. I'm not sure.

I don't know for me it would feel like a waste to use a 480 as a 470

True. If I could get $230 for my 465/470, I'd get another 480.

I feel you man, but you're kind of in a bit of pickle. I KNOOOWWW you don't want to use a 470 just as a doggon PhysX card. Plus, if you did, everyone on the forum would find you and slap you. Why not sell the card, and buy another 470, MSI brand, in honor of their generosity to you? That sounds fair. You're putting change back in their pocket either way.

+Rep just for having integrity. That is hard to come by these days.

Yeah, if I can't sell the 470 for another 480. Then that's what I'll do. Thanks for the advice.
