Hi,
I have a problem with my ASUS GTX 960 Strix 4GB. Everything started with my mobo fail so it ended with new mobo. When I pluged my card back it showed no picture from displayport but it showed a display on the dvi connected second monitor (DP works fine on the integrated HD 530 so it's not a cabel or monitor issue).
Then i've connected my main moniter through dvi and it worked, but not 100%. When I want to go to Nvidia control panel my computer slow down and start freezing. When the window eventually pops out it shows no options but stereoscopic 3D settings. I can't aslo change a frequency and it only works on 60Hz as it says I have no permission to do it. I tried to instal different drivers using DDU every time, but it changes nothing.
I decided to check it on my computer in work but when I plugged it in, card showed no display at all (dvi,hdmi).
Now I want to flash the card BIOS, but I can't find the proper one. I only found bios for
STRIX-GTX960-DC2OC-4GD5 when my card is STRIX-GTX960-DC2-4GD5.
So my question is if I can flash this BIOS to my card without any issues? It seems they have only different clocks.
Can anyone can help me or maybe you have better ideas on how to challenge it?

Oookaaaay, I don't know how, but after failed trial in PC at work the card actually worked in my home rig. So you can close the thread unless someone else want to know if you can flash slightly different bios to your card ;)
