    there are 2 bioses, one bios has "performance" settings, the other has "silent" settings

    the switch does not switch any fan settings directly, it switches between bioses which each have different settings

    Thank you so much for the Answer, finally some clarity :D . So I guess the default switch "perfomance" it´s the one I can try to unlock being "silence" the backup one, or doesnt matter which one I can try to flash?

    A lot of people, with the card, are claiming this is not possible.

    How did you achieve the unlock? Did you modify the BIOS with RBE? Can you post a piccie? :)

    Thanks

    Mine didn't unlock either. But it's still one hell of a gfx card. I love the cooler. With fans at 40% is virtually silent, yet the temperature never goes beyond 72°C.

    @W1z
    Have you checked both BIOS'es on how the fan settings are adjusted? I've tried both modes and even though the clocks are identical, i coudn't notice it being any more silent than in Performance mode for some reason.

    Tried the AB-Oz method (supposedly official MSI method) and it didn't work either :( Now i'm not sure if i'm doing something wrong or my card just isn't unlockable.
