Added pictures. Doing this bios flash wouldn't be worth it with out water!
Hello there guys, I haven't been here in ages! Long time no see!
It's been almost a decade I think, but here I am.
I hope this will help some one out there.
-- Bios Flash for EVGA RTX 2080TI Black Edition -- Non A (non binned) Part #11G-P4-2281-KR
--Notes: Don't know if it makes a difference, but my video card has samsung memory. You can check yours with GPU-Z
--WARNING-- Flash your bios at your own risk. Bricking your BIOS is always a risk no matter what you are flashing.
Pros: This will allow you to crease your power limit TDP for better overclocking. From 112% to 125%.
Cons: This will limit your fan speed from 3200RPM to 2200RPM.
Cons: Fans no longer go below 35% on idle.(who cares).
Neutral: Just update the cooling(water), or hardwire the fans manually.
- This bios flash is suggested to be done with a compatible waterblock, since the fans will not go higher than 2200RPM at 100%(msi afterburner etc).
--Parts to promote cooling after bios flash -- (these 3 parts will make sure the Vram stays cool as well)
Parts: Compatible water block, Vram Heatsinks, Fan for Vram. This can be done in many different ways, this is just to make your life easy if you do endup water cooling it.(Water cooling not needed, but it'd make more sense doing it).
0)Download and Extract all files to a folder on your harddrive. http://www.2wheelsgonewild.com/RTX_f...nonA_Flash.zip
1)Note the NVflash included is modified(this will allow you to flash your EVGA with a PALIT bios).
2)Open CMD(command prompt as admin), navigate to the folder where you extracted the files.
3)Type nvflash -6 palit.rom
4)Launch MSCONFIG, click on the boot tab, click on SAFE BOOT under the options.
5)Run DDU (included in the package), this will wipe ALL traces of the current nvidia driver. This is very easy, select Nvidia GPU, and then click on the CLEAN AND RESTART button.
6)Install Nvidia Experience, Launch it, Download Driver, Install driver. If you get an error, it's because windows 10 is probably installing it's default driver since you just removed the driver with DDU, just give it a minute or so, and try Nvidia Experience again.
I would recommend removing MSI afterburner or any overclocking software from windows STARTUP, then when you are done, re-add it to the startup.
Have Fun !
You might have to reinstall some hardware accelerated apps like any chromium based web browsers. They install the files based on your current hardware, and don't update after hardware changes. Just re-download and re install.
