These firmware files are intended for the EVGA GTX 970 SSC Gaming ACX 2.0/2.0+, FTW+ 2.0+.

The following card SKUS are supported:

SSC+ - (04G-P4-3975-KR) and FTW+ - (04G-P4-3978-KR)
Best Buy Exclusive SKUS: SC - (04G-P4-3979-KB) and SSC+ - (04g-P4-3979-KF).


I do recommend you have at least a 600W+ PSU before attempting to use these firmware files. The fan profile has been reverted back to stock per request of a few members. Thanks to blaze2210 for sharing his fan curve settings and continued modifications to the 3979-KB specifically.

Disclaimer:
Please backup the firmware for your card and keep it somewhere safe, before attempting to flash my modified firmware. As long as you can flash back to the original for warranty and rma purposes you will not void your warranty as per eVGA. You will however void your warranty by flashing the wrong firmware for your card, flashing my firmware and not having integrated gfx to recover from a bad flash, resulting in a bricked card. Please google proper backup, flashing and firmware modification procedures before attempting to flash my modified firmware. Better safe than sorry. Flash at your own risk.


Thanks for testing. Happy flashing and enjoy!!!

Thanks go out to zoson, Cyclops, djthrottleboi, jonny30bass, joedirt and Laithan for all their hard work here at OCN and advice during the evolution of these firmware files !!!! Also, to blaze2210 and everyone else for testing. Thank you Vellinious and Mr-Dark for your contributions. Thanks to lightsout, swddeluxx and FPSkillerPC for stock roms for the 3975-KR and 3978-KR. Thanks Laithan for helping with the latest test rom.

04G-P4-3978-KR BIOS (FTW+) roms. There are two different roms, as I just found that there are 2 revisions so far. Please check your firmware before downloading to insure you have flashed the correct firmware for your card! Otherwise, you will end up with a $370 paperweight!

Reset all overclocking software to defaults and set not to start with Windows. Everything is controlled by the firmware and shouldn't throttle unless using FurMark. (not recommended)
