How to flash GTX560 firmware.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
As the title says, I want to flash my "regular" ASUS GTX560 ti to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121425&cm_re=asus_GTX_560-_-14-121-425-_-Product]"TOP" ASUS GTX560 ti.
These two has slightly different clocks.
I know there is easier way to OC like using softwares like afterburner.
But my brother is gonna use it and he doesn't know anything about OCing. And he wants to play Crysis 2 etc., on maxed settings
So I sort of want to make a permanent OC on this GTX560.
English is not my native language so a step by step guide would be very helpful.

PS: I have downloaded Asus GTX560ti "TOP" BIOS and nvflash_5.100.0.1 from techpowerup.

Here is a great guide to flashing NVIDIA cards. Good luck!
Edit: You might want to overclock it with AB and test to ensure that the higher clocks are stable.

He has a 1080P monitor. And he also wants the card to be a little "future proof".
Plus I also want to learn how to flash BIOS.
The guide is great. When it comes to BIOS flashing I'm a newbie. Does nflash 5.95 support GTX500 series?

Have you looked at that guide? Seems pretty detailed to me. I just flash from windows. I know that it is safer to do it at boot, but meh... I am too lazy to do that smile.gif.

That BIOS flash is going to do what..take you from 830 to 900 mhz? Not worth the trouble, at all.

MSI Afterburner is so easy a grandmother could do it, seriously. Spend your time researching a guide for that rather than a flash guide. Overclocking a GPU is just as easy as posting on this forum..or any other thing you can imagine that is..easy.

http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm

Do yourself a favor here..it's a 1 time set it and forget it thing with Afterburner OC. If you are inexperienced at flashing BIOS on GPUs you can very well cause a big problem you may not have the tools or experience or knowledge to fix (soft bricking the card).

Thats a good point. I only flash my bios because my computer is slow at bootup with all the stuff booting at startup. And since I don't play too many games nowadays, I just don't need the fan profile in afterburner, so I don't run it in the background anymore that much. I figured I would flash my oc on my card at that point and then later manually control the fan speed if I need to.

On the other hand, flashing can be dangerous if you don't do it right, I talked my friend (Computer illiterate friend) into setting up afterburner and ocing. He really doesn't know much about computers, but he still managed it. So, personally, I would try that.

Well i have "some" BIOS flashing experience, about a half year ago I unlocked PNY XLR8 GTX465 to GTX470 and it was pretty easy.
I know how to use afterburner, precision etc.. but my brother is going to use the card. And we don't live together, and he is too lazy to learn about OCing.
For a reason I don't know he constantly re-installs his OS.
Anyways thanks for your advices.
