Hi! I have a MSI GTX 560 ti oc, and i can't upload it's bios with gpu-z 0.5.1 on techpowerup, it says that the bios is already in the collection, but it's false, it's no MSI gtx 560 bios on techpowerup.com, look at this printscreen.

If i read bios with gpu-z 0.5.0, 0.4.9, 0.4.8 i can upload it, with all three versions, the sha-1, md5 and crc32 file hashes are identically, but with 0.5.1 are other hashes.

Check this out W1zzard and if you want more info just ask.

Ok, but why the bios saved with gpu-z 0.5.1 have other file hash, and with 0.5.0, 0.4.9 and 0.4.8 (i didn't tried older versions) is another hash (with all three versions is the same) but with 0.5.1 is different, and the size of the bios with 0.5.1 is 63,9 kb, and with 0.5.0, 0.4.9 and 0.4.8 is only 61 kb?

SHA-1 hash 0.5.1 > 27E0E8420DFE16C91287E5BA2E5F152E891EABC5
SHA-1 hash older versions > D748954AA372CA35DEA2EA25FBA2F9F3DD2C3715

Look, here is another member who has the same problem. > http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=140940

What version reads correctly the bios? 0.5.1 or the older versions? Thanks

it's a bug in the bios saving code that saves too much data. the bios will still work fine
