How To Flash a GTX 465 to a GTX470! And SLI with a real one!
Just a Quick Mini Tutorial for anyone interested, it worked for me!
Sorry if something similar has been posted before, searched but could not find
I just purchased my New GTX465 a few days ago 08/07/2010 then read about this so though i might give it a go.
What I did is I used NVflash, and a 470 Bios Rom.
I have Uploaded the Rom and the latest NVflash HERE
and i also have uploaded:
Hp format tool
Win98 Boot files
Download and install the HP format tool, then select your usb to format;
select FAT32 and select create Boot disk.
Extract the Windows 98 boot files to a destination, then select them in the HP format tool.
Select quick format then start, (make sure you backup any data on the usb first!!) Once it has formatted the USB, download and extract the contents of the 465-470.rar to the USB. This folder contains NVFlash aswell as a Rom for the GTX470.
Once it has Copied over Restart and select your USB in the boot menu of you PC, you will see a Quick flash of the Windows 98 Boot screen then a MSDOS Screen. Type the following:
nvflash --save backup.rom
NVflash --index=0 GTX470.ROM
[SUB]Replace 0 with the slot number that your Card is in, for me it was the top X16 slot which is 0. [/SUB]
And now you're done! Reboot and your OS should Pick the card up!
Note: My CPU is crap :tongue:
GPU hit 90*C during that run.
and no i do not live in Antarctica. I dont know why it is reporting -2147483648*c
Took the card to my friends place earlier this week, He owns a GTX470 so thought we would try them in SLI
His Antec 900 Loaded with the two Cards plus a 9600GT
The cards together
AND IT WORKS!
Temperatures and Fan speeds quite high
Thought we would test out the 3 cards together
Could not get the latest Drivers to work with Surround gaming, so only played some games on one screen, but still with SLI
Will upload some Vids to youtube later this week
Extra stuff to know:
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF THIS BRICKS YOUR CARD!
Just had to say that.
If this does Brick your card, Use this command before you Quit:
NVflash --index=0 backup.ROM
any suggestions or Questions just ask and i will try my best to answer them.
