    Hello everyone! A while back, I flashed my Nvidia GeForce GTX 465 to a GTX 470 because it met the required hardware specifications to do so. Lately I've been having problems with crashing, screen tearing, etc. so I want to flash it back to its original 465 BIOS. It's an EVGA GeForce 465 SuperClocked edition.

    If I flash it with this BIOS, will it work using nvflash?: http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/77173/EVGA.GTX465.1024.100507.html, will it work and be reverted back?

    Here is a GPU Z SS.

    I used this tutorial to flash it:http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Flab501.ro%2Fplaci-video%2Fcum-transformi-geforce-gtx-465-in-gtx-470&sl=ro&tl=en

    Thanks!

    If you enable the force flash trigger you can flash anything onto any card, even if it will brick it.
    No idea about the BIOS sorry, I always keep a copy of the original one.

    Easier to just try dropping it 100-200Mhz and see if it still happens.

    Hi

    The vga bios that's linked in the OP is not for superclocked version of EVGA GTX 465 [note; memory timings in the sc version may differ]

    compared; core, mem, & shader clocks

    source - http://www.evga.com/articles/00553/

    atb (all the best)

    Yup and that's something I stupidly failed to do!

    Does anyone else have a EVGA GeForce GTX 465 SC BIOS available? I tried looking around and can't seem to find one anywhere! Thanx!

    Right, I'm aware of that. However, there's only a BIOS for the original stock card. I need one for the SC (SuperClocked) edition. Thanks! :)

    You should have backed up your original 465 bios using GPU-Z.

    I added a couple of GTX 465 SC BIOSes to the Bios Database, take another look
     
    Law-II says thanks.

    Hey W1zzard! Thanks for doing that. However, there's just one problem. I don't see them! I see a lot for the EVGA GTX 465 original and SE versions, but none for the SC version. Am I looking in the wrong place?
