Ez3Flash
Is a small tool to help anyone flash they GPU. It also has come with the Nvflash. Ez3Flash: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Download link => Ez3flash.zip 365k .zip file
Update 12/12/2013
Ez3flash with PLX chip
Added support to owners with PLX chip and guide how to.
Code:
For PLX chip owners you must understand how to skip the PLX chip with ez3flash
I have added a *PLX-CHIP.png* into this new revision to show you how to skip PLX and flash
each GPU.

This is how you display adapter should look like when you have PLX (8747h) among the GPU.
Nvflash read's GPU "0" to "5" ez3flsh show's GPU "1" to "6".

This is side by side Nvflash with Ez3flash.

*Nvflash*                      *Ez3flash*
Select display adapter:        Process number
<0> PLX (8747h)  >>>>>>>  # 5.  nvflash -i0 -4 -5 -6  " Flash GPU #1 " 
<1> GeForce GTX  >>>>>>>  # 6.  nvflash -i1 -4 -5 -6  " Flash GPU #2 "
<2> GeForce GTX  >>>>>>>  # 7.  nvflash -i2 -4 -5 -6  " Flash GPU #3 "
<3> PLX (8747h)  >>>>>>>  # 8.  nvflash -i3 -4 -5 -6  " Flash GPU #4 "
<4> GeForce GTX  >>>>>>>  # 9.  nvflash -i4 -4 -5 -6  " Flash GPU #5 "
<5> GeForce GTX  >>>>>>>  # 10. nvflash -i5 -4 -5 -6  " Flash GPU #6 "
Select a number (ESC to quit):

Now you can flash four GPU with PLX chip with easy flash you just need to match the 
*Select a number (ESC to quit): *

to flash all GTX your Process number is : 6,7,9,10
5 and 8 is the PLX chip.

HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool - v2.1.8
Windows 8 users: Run as administrator as a windows will pop up asking for using compatible mode ( only for the first time )
Win98 boot DOS files: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Win98 boot DOS files
For use with HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool


Step 1
First things first, your going to need an easy to use USB utility so we recommend the HP USB Storage Format Tool (Yes that’s a link).
Step 2
You need some Windows 98 boot files so Click This Link
Step 3
Unzip the Windows 98 boot files and make sure you know where you unzipped them to. We unzipped to the desktop.
Unzip and install the HP Utility
Step 4
Insert the USB Stick you want to use into one of your USB ports.
Step 5
Launch the HP USB Utility and you’ll be greeted with this screen


Using the Drop Down List make sure that your USB Drive is selected.
Step 6


UNder the File System Drop Down list select FAT32 (File Allocation Table 32).
Step 7

Click the box next to Create a Dos Startup Disk.
Step 8

The “Using DOS system files located at” balloon will be automatically selected.
Step 9

Navigate to where you unzipped the Windows 98 Boot files and highlight that folder.
Step 10


Once you’ve done that the location of the Windows 98 boot files should now appear in the box below the “using DOS System files located at:” section.
At this point click START. (You may want to verify that your USB drive is highlighted and not your primary boot drive ;-0
Step 11


You get a warning about formatting your drive. Assuming that you have the correct drive selected click YES.
Step 12


Then wait while the dreaded Green line crawls across the screen. On the 1GB Sandisk Micro Cruzer we were using it took about 4 minutes. Larger drives will take longer.
Step 13


Once complete you get this confirmation screen. Click OK and you can close the HP Utility.
Step 14

These are the files on the USB Drive and those are enough to boot your rig with.
Step 15


If, like us, you want extended DOS functionality then copy the rest of the files in the Windows 98 folder to the root of the USB drive you just made bootable. This will give you mouse support, a rudimentary editor, FDISK in case you need to old school a drive, and some other handy DOS warrior type things.
Here’s what we did. On Windows Explorer click EDIT then Select ALL, then hover over COMMAND.COM and CTRL Click it to remove it from the list, then hover over MSDOS.SYS and CTRL click to remove it, then hover over IO.SYS and CTRL Click to remove it. Then just drag the remaining files and folders over to the USB drive and drop them. That should create a DOS Command Line Warriors emergency boot disk suitable for booting to and doing DOS things or flashing your motherboard or GPU BIOS.

I tryed the rev 4 of vBios but evertime i tryed to benchmark it, the clock went back to stock 1006Mhz.
So i went back to the orginal bios from the backup file.
Should i use the: Gigabyte.GTX780.3072.130516WF-PT+VOLT-BD.rev2 insteed? Even that i have a rev 2.0 card?

OCN: skyn3t vBios rev 3A : released date 11/29/2013: Spoiler! (Click to show)
vBios update. 11/29/2013

I would not call it rev 4 but rev 3A according to all bios version
I had to think a lot before doing this. As I posted it here before
"I would not going to give the 780 that much power". but I did tongue.gif

What you must know before you flash it.
before you flash this new vBios especially for "noobs"
that going to complain about high heat while gaming or benching
Shut down their PSU´s if mishandled. because you don't know
how to work with those values especially owners on AIR. if you are under water you fine.
you never going to exceed 50c.
On air you going to hit the max temp in a few minutes going to experience flickering all
over the screen while gaming and bench.

OC is not about throwing the High voltage and slide it to PX 200% or AB 300% Power limit.
You must learn how much voltage you add after each +13Mhz added to your OC.
As now you have zawarudo volt hack to go 1.6v above instead voltmod 1.3v + LLC.
So the same way he put the big warning add when use his tool I will add it here too.
because if you burn it down it will be all on you. don't even thing in blame me.

yeah you going to blame V8 Jaguar F-Type Coupe with 700 horsepower "I gave you 500 horsepower tongue.gif"
0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds when you hit the wall at the top speed of 320K.
look at this Beastly: Spoiler! (Click to show)
76a7360e_JAGUARF-Type-4666_16.jpeg
do you?

For the shutdown's blame Ed, yes OccamRazor tongue.gif, he is the one that calculates the power usage for us
if you don't have enough juice, don't even take the red pill. thumb.gif

OCN: skyn3t vBios list

Many users had a issue with high base clock. so I decide to lower it a bit to fix that issue. some bios won't like it a all when moded , if you are on 980Mhz base clock and have no issue you don't need to flash to this new small revision.

rev 2 update
  • Disable boost in all vBios.
  • Default power target = 340W ( no need to adjust it manually in Precision X )
  • Fixed TPD to 60% to 68% on load
  • Clocks are stock, card idles normally at 2d voltage
  • Fan speed adjustable up to 100%
  • Fixed Gigabyte WF vbios to act like a normal bios no more 1.212v all the time thumb.gif
  • Fixed Valley to show the real core clock.


Nvflash command line to be use.

Nvflash --protectoff
To disable the "eeprom security" to make sure you will have a good flash

Nvflash - 4 -5 -6 vBiosName.rom
To flash our custom vBios or bios.

After flash it may require to re install Nvidia drivers. you don't need to clean all the drivers just run a nvidia setup and choose custom installation and make sure you check the box performance a clean instal. It will do. thumb.gif

All Nvidia reference GPU can use any vbios that are reference "stock cooler". None reference cooler "Gigabyte ,ACX and HC" are not reference GPU in terms of dual fan profile or no fan like Hydro copper. it may work well but it may not. test it and let me know.

Also all load after valley bench.

Voltage works like stock bios, idle normal.
1.212v only work if you slide the voltage control all the way up smile.gif

I could not find a solution for this. So made two version

Gigabyte.GTX780.3072.130516WF-PT+VOLT.rom
OC 1215Mhz GCO +54 @ 1.212v
Idle normal but it boost voltage to 1.21v but still a very good bios
1.212v only work if you slide the voltage control all the way up smile.gif

Gigabyte.GTX780.3072.130516WF-PT+ONLY.rom
Can OC high like vBios above @ 1.2v with +38v
I thank all of you for the support smile.gif

PS: Everyone that uses k-boost will have a issue with 1.212v all the time. Looks like k-boost messing with vBios.
The only way to fix it is to disable kboost ( for all have sli disable it first ) and reflash the GPU bios.

Thanks for everyone that helped me out with all this hard work.

Best nvflash command line for use with same GPU brand and vBios
nvflash -4 -5 -6 vBiosname.rom or

Best nvflash command line for use with different GPU brand vBios
nvflash --override -6 vBiosname.rom

According to GPU-Z, my BIOS Version is 80.10.37.00.80 (P2083-0020)

The bios version 80.10.37.00.80 is for mobo compatibility only.
That's nothing wrong with 80.10.36.XX.XX. it has been asked many times over and over.

This guide applies only for 780/Titan, if and when we have support for the 780Ti, this guide will be updated to reflect the changes!

DISCLAIMER: This is my view and my approach of the complicated and wonderful art of Overclocking, if you find any way to improve my guide i will be open to change it and give you credit for it! I take no responsibility for the usage of this information or hardware damage! Use this at YOUR OWN RISK!

First of all dont forget you´re on OCN! You should have OC in your blood!
I WILL BE USING (AB) AfterBurner AS ITS THE ONLY SOFTWARE THAT ALLOWS SOFTWARE VOLTAGE CONTROL AND MONITORING
Download and install the latest AB here: http://www.guru3d.com/files_details/msi_afterburner_beta_download.html
Now, youll have to setup AB properly: Go to settings » general and tick the "enable hardware control and monitoring", "unlock voltage control" and "unlock voltage monitoring" and click "OK" at the bottom fo the window!


Now download my: NEW ED´s VOLTMOD / LLC GUIDE and follow the guide to the letter including the LLC HACK as described in my guide also with a link to download!
Now a word of warning: ON AIR DO NOT GO ABOVE 1,24V WITH LLC DISABLED:
"Please do NOT GO ABOVE 1,212v WITH SOFT VOLT MOD AND LLC DISABLE! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
No air cooler has the capacity to dissipate the heat load out of the VRM area when OC with overvoltage! And you cannot know the VRM´s temps, only do an estimate calculation based on your power draw! HEAT KILLS!
Exactly what happens depends on how excess the power is. It may be a sustained cooking. In this case, the MOSFET gets hot enough to literally unsolder itself. Much of the MOSFET heating at high currents is in the leads - which can quite easily unsolder themselves without the MOSFET failing! If the heat is generated in the chip, then it will get hot - but its maximum temperature is usually not silicon-restricted, but restricted by the fabrication. The silicon chip is bonded to the substrate by soft solder and it is quite easy to melt this and have it ooze between the epoxy and the metal of the body, forming solder droplets! Excess heat leads to short circuit! Usually, a MOSFET will fail short first. This is because excessive heat will, by diffusion, mix the dopants enough to create a good conductor instead of the p-n or n-p barriers that were there originally. Often, the gate oxide will be taken into the diffusion, too, causing a short between all three terminals.
Only if the short circuit current after this first mode of failure is high enough to blow the bond wires or the entire transistor, there is an open circuit.
Another forgotten thing is the voltage controller NCP4206 itself! its rated for a maximum operating temperature of 85C and again no way to measure the temperature!

Please guys PLAY SAFE!

ON AIR MAX VOLTAGE: 1.212v + 0.025 (+-) 0.006v = 1.24v(+-)
Keep the fan high and dont let temps go over 70/75C and even this is with a pinch of salt! thumb.gif"

Now that you have your friendly warning, lets go on and OC your "Beast" GK110! biggrin.gif
You have in AB five(5) sliders: Core Voltage (mV), Power Limit (%)(click to prioritize power limit or temperature limit), Core Clock (Mhz) , Memory Clock (Mhz) and Fan Speed (%)
As you all know OC involves clocks and voltages and one important thing: Silicone lottery! Your card will go up in clocks up to a point where voltage cannot give you more speed unless you move to other cooling setup! As i always say: " There is no crap card, there is different cards requiring different voltages to reach different clocks depending on the chips capabilities" My 2 Watercooled Titans ASIC 69%,@1,[email protected] reach @1,[email protected]!

First things first: Flash your card with the appropriate bios supplied by your in-the-house-modder my Brother Skyn3t!
It will unlock your voltage up to 1,212v, disable boost and increase your power target up to 200% to enable your card along with voltage to up those clocks to where you want them!

Now download EZ3flash: EZ3FLASH VBIOS TOOL W/SAVE FUNCTION
and my guide on how to use it: ED´S EZ3FLASH GUIDE

Now, you have your bios flashed, unlocked voltage, no boost and have a juicy power target of 200% to play with!

ON AIR - Set your voltage in AB to 1,212v (Remember that with LLC disabled you have an increase of 0.025v ending with 1,24v), prioritize temperature on the Power Limit tab , increase your fan to minimum 70% and increase it as you see temps go up, dont let it go above 80C! PT SLIDER TO 100 only increase it if you are having throttling clocks and hitting 100% PT (More on this later wink.gif)
Start by increasing +100mhz in the Core Clock tab, leave the memory at +0 for now, go play your favorite game or bench (I advise to use FarCry3 for clock testing along with Metro LL and 3Dmark11 you can use also Tombraider benchmark as many people have said its very stressing (not me! tongue.gif) )
If you find your new increased clocks are stable through your tests, go ahead and increase another +50mhz to the Core Clock and so on until you crash, freeze or start to have artifacts, then back down 10mhz and test again! REMEMBER IT IS STABLE FOR YOU WHEN IT DOESNT CRASH IN YOUR GAME/BENCH, you´ll find that the word stable is dynamic and not static as it will vary from game to game and bench to bench, unless you´re benching and of course you´ll need high memory clocks, but as there is no way to increase memory voltage and depends on memory and your chip´s memory controller your millage will vary!

Before you start to whine about "Hey what about the 13mhz increments, youre not doing in in the guide!"
The values i suggest are figurative and you can try the accurate values you want of course, more on the 13mhz here with my Brother´s explanation: https://www.overclock.net/t/1393791/official-nvidia-gtx-780-owners-club/13800_100#post_21206343

You can create profiles for your favorite games and benches in AB:



Now that you found your sweet spot between core clock and voltage, start increasing your memory OC with +50mhz at a time (I advise to test with Crysis 3, Metro LL) when it starts to give you artifacts back down 50mhz and you got your MAX core with your MAX memory OC,
Now i MUST emphasize that if you're on a single monitor you wont see much improvement in FPS and it might impair your core clock speeds as it will crash your card and you might blame your core when its the memory crashing your card! IF you have a 4K monitor or multi monitor then yes you will see an improvement in smoothness rather increase in FPS, so, OC your core first and after your memory!

What?!?!? Its not enough?!?!? You want more? Ok! thumb.gif
But you have to get wet...

ON WATER- Now that you have your brand new EK waterblock (I dont have to tell you its the best to cool your card´s VRM´s right? biggrin.gif ) installed and ready to rumble,
Crank that voltage to 1,300v, (remember its +0.025v landing you on the 1,330v area) set your core clock to 1200mhz, leave your memory at +0 and test it (Again FAR CRY 3 and METRO LL or 3DMARK11) increase core clocks until you start having crashes! AGAIN REMEMBER IT IS STABLE FOR YOU WHEN IT DOESNT CRASH IN YOUR GAME/BENCH, keep the temperature prioritized as your card´s under water and you have no temperature worries so with that free the power draw!
NOW lets talk a little about PT as it will become a challenge to understand it as it varies from card to card due each chip´s design;
You might have shutdowns because you set your PT too high! when you set your PT to the MAX and give enough voltage and clocks to the card you will have spikes in the current (Amperage) and your PSU if its not Single Rail it will EXCEED the 25/30A most Multi rail PSU´s have on the 12v PCIe and trip your PSU OCP (Over Current Protection)
IMO you only should increase your PT if you are seeing throttling clocks and hitting 100% PT!
Now go for the memory OC, same applies as above IMO you should not care much about memory unless you bench or have 4K or multi monitors!

Wait.. What? still not enough?!?!!?!? Woah! You´re tough as nails and have steel balls! alright then: thumb.gif

OVER THE BOARD: tongue.gif
Get the Zawarudos tool: ZAWARUDOV3 AfterBurner15/16

REMEMBER NOT TO HAVE THE VOLTAGE IN AB SET TO "AUTO" AS IT WILL RESULT IN A BSOD!

Enter your voltage as a 4 digit number


Remember that actual voltages are always 0.025v higher due to the LLC mod being enabled:

1400 = 1425 which is 1.425v due to LLC

After you've clicked the apply button and you're sure your volts are correct head over to your Afterburner program:



Then all you need to do is move your power target down one then back up one to make the apply button click-able.
Then just click the apply button and monitor the change using Afterburners graphs to verify it's worked.

Now you have your own personal nuclear plant in your own house!

Cheers all

Go to Program files (x86) and locate MsiAfterburner folder and press "shift" and right click on the MsiAfterburner folder:



click "open command window here"
Insert these commands (one or the other depends on your card) without the commas:"msiafterburner /ri4,20,99" or "msiafterburner /ri3,20,99"



if it return "41" you may have unlocked the 1.3v

Now go to profiles folder inside Afterburner folder :



Now open the: VEN_10DE&DEV_1004&SUBSYS_27843842&REV_A1&BUS_3&DEV_0&FN_0.... files inside the profiles folder and add
these lines:

[settings]

VDDC_Generic_Detection=0
VDDC_NCP4206_Detection=3:20h



now save and close notepad and restart Afterburner, it will ask you to reboot, if not go back and redo the guide as you failed to do some step!

LLC HACK

Download the LLC hack:

LLC hack ,press windows key + R,



Type SHELL:STARTUP into the start/search field and press ENTER

Unzip it to the start up folder you just opened!

Double click LLC-0.EXE! from now on every time you start your computer this exe will execute and disable the LLC for your cards!

First off before i begin no i have not reviewed any of these units nor do i claim any credit for it, Its all done by Techpowerup so all credit goes to them. Since Techpowerup does not have reviews for every single 700-750 watts PSU i can only pick the ones they have reviewed which means the Cooler Master V700 is not in thread however sad that might be. And a model(s) is not bad because its not here

Anyway lets be about it and start with the first one which is going to be the EVGA SuperNova G2 750 watts (based on the Super Flower Leadex Gold) and we start with some pictures of the platform and fan
