nvflash64 description does not show any meaning for option -4 nor -5. What do they do? I think these are outdated flags.

With respect, I would like to try something well documented and tested - my pockets are unfortunately very shallow when it comes to £1,200 graphics cards
It's possible -4 and/or -5 are obsolete now. They were various overrides to force the flash.

Yes 100% voids warranty. I don't mind as i've had this card already for about 6 months and it hasn't died yet. I don't see it dying any time soon. I do have 16Gb sticks that don't tighten well. But sometimes if you run the test again your cpu score goes normal. Idk why that happens

Try:

Code:
nvflash64 -4 -5 -6 msi400w.rom
Since the MSI Trio is a 3 (power) connector card and the Duke OC is a 2 connector reference PCB card, you should use the 380w BIOS for best results.

One of the fans still turns at idle, the other 2 do not, with the 380w BIOS.

RAGEdemon Thanks for the response.

The instructions and feedback from the prompts are 100% exactly as per the flashing instructions on in the first post. - Every response is also exactly in-line with those shown in OP... until this last section.

=============

From my (uneducated) observation, the problem seems to be the firmware on my Duke is a later version than the one in the 400w / 380w firmwares. If you look at your original firmware version, I would wager that it is not 90.02.17.00.2E - or at least, not the same USB-typeC firmware component.

Presumably, it might seem that either a newer firmware needed, or a way to skip the USB-TypeC section of the firmware.

My uneducated 2 cents... Welcoming all responses in return

-------------
On a related note: Was there a good reason you choose the 380w Galax over the 400w MSI? Do the 3 fans work as they should at the right speed? Do they still all stop on idle? Appreciate the info

Looks like an issue with the USB Type-C connector firmware?

This is with both the 400W "unofficial" MSI bios, as well as the official Galax/KFA2 380W bios.

Insight would be much appreciated - it's a travesty that this card has been locked to a 111%/290w power limit.

Edit:
Added GPU-Z screenshot showing current bios info etc.
I had no trouble flashing my Duke OC to the 380w BIOS. Can you post how you are trying to flash it? (Specific nvflash commands you're using.)

nice score!! I don't think I have the gut to shunt mod my card. It will void the warranty, won't it? for the CPU Score, at may be down to BIOS settings optimization including memory timing tuning since I used Raja's B-Die single rank preset.

What was your results after flashing the new Bios. Was it a considerable improvement?
Thanks!
I've got my card shunt modded and can get around 2200 with the curve. but yes 380w is all you need and you can get a decent more OC out of it
