2080Ti lightning "Dead" after XOC bios Flash.

Hi guys,
Today i want to share my experience with flashing XOC bios so u wont make same mistake. I tried to flash XOC Asus bios on MSI lightning, because why not ? i can get no power limit for free... and what can happen ? They share same IC MP2888 and if something bad happens i can always switch to second bios, well seems like i was totally wrong.

First i flashed the XOC bios without problems, restarted PC and i immediately saw something is not good, card was stuck at 1350mhz core clock (safe mode), core voltage was also stuck at 0.7V and power limit was not showing. I reflashed back stock Msi bios but that didnt help, so i switched to second bios, also didnt help. I already tried to flash few other bioses, nothing helps so please BE CAREFUL with flashing XOC bios, i was stupid and now im paying my price. Card is still stuck at 1350mhz.
I would like to thank Dancop as he was willing to help me, unfortunately nothing helped :/

- UPDATE - Card is working again !
Hi,
Today (10.3.2019) I managed to get the card working again, everything is fine and working 100%. How ? The issue was that i had the card on watercooling and Msi somehow programmed the card to be stuck in safe mode when you flash card without cooler fans plugged in (i flashed XOC bios on waterblock so obviously there wasnt any fan plugged). So now card is fully working on stock cooler without problems.
So to summarize - Asus XOC bios is fine, will not brick your card unless you do something stupid ( like flashing bios on water ? LOL MSI *** protection)
BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO TRIED TO HELP ME

- UPDATE 2 -
(13.3.2019) After everything working for few hours I benched card with XOC bios at morning, i played few games till evening and now i woke up and card is stuck at 1350mhz (safe mode) again, so i had to again plug back all cooler fans and switch to second bios to fix it.
What it means ? MSI card somehow is scanning everything on PCB, checking for "dead" voltages or malfunctions and if it detects something like unplugged fan (my case because im on waterblock) it again starts safe mode.
Conclusion : If u have lightning on water be aware of this "issue", until MSI fixes it you cant really run Lightning on water without plugging fans back after few restarts or (maybe) random gpu check (???).

I think it's funny people take risks like this with $1400 video cards. Talk about more money than brains...

Nah, you dont understand, that card was bought for overclocking and LN2,its not about money, as overclocker i want to push my hardware as much as i can, doesnt matter if it costs 1500€ or 150€. Well **** happens i didnt expect to brick card this easily, especially with dual-bios.

The Lightning already had an unlimited BIOS right? Otherwise whats the point?
It's well known not to cross flash the triple plug cards, that being said I wouldn't have expected any issues flashing it anyway even if for the lulz. Does your BIOS switch involve two tiny dip switches?

Nop lightning have 380W "LN2 bios" only Msi chosen overclockers can get that "true" unlimited bios, thats a shame, i didnt know it till i bought the card.
Yeah there is a tiny dip switch for dual bios function, didnt help as i mentioned.

One switch or two is what I'm asking.
If only a handful of "select" people get the real BIOS I'd refund the card if possible. If it doesn't have an unlimited BIOS it's no better for LN2 than many other AIB 2080TIs. I was under the impression (from the articles pre-launch) that it was an LN2 oriented card with a great cooler plus a normal gaming BIOS and an almost unlimited BIOS.
