I have since 4 days this cart. Temps are outstanding (about 60 degrees with 100% load), but it has a powerlimit of 100%. Even 3090 FE is better.
Do you have any experience or recommendation about flashing another bios (for example, MSI)?
Thanks for your help

Since they are almost vaporware, you'll have a hard enough time finding another 3090 user let alone one who has flashed a different bios to the card :laugh: there are only 4 bios listed on TPU database I wouldn't recommend flashing one.

Undervolt, but don't overextend the power limit. It is not solid practice, imo.
I´m sorry, but I´m new here. How is the procedure to undervolt? how I can do it?

A very smart 3080 user is doing it. You can look for it.

Let´s hope someone test other 3090 BIOS brands with the KFA2 3090. I see that with MSI it could reach my desired 380W, it has the same display ports, so I suppose is perfectly flashable.
The MSI trio board has a PCB reference design, or its custom?
If someone hast tested another bios please tell me.

all the varients have pretty much the same powerlimit
if you want more powerlimit then shunt mods are your only option

Yeah a bunch of users on that owners club flashed their cards with the Gigabyte Eagle OC bios no problem.
Usually BIOS are interchangiable between cards with the same number of PCIe power connectors.
That means if your card has dual 8 pin PCIe power connector you can flash to other card's BIOS with dual 8 pin PCIe power connectors.

Thanks. I´m a bit afraid to convert my 3090 into a brick, if anyone with a KFA2 SG 3090 has tried it, I would be glad to know it.

Anyone that has flashed a 3090 KFA2/GALAX board? Any recommendation? I´m not sure to flash to the Gigabyte gaming OC bios (to increase PW 350W to 390W) . I´m afraid of bricking my card. If somebody that has the KFA2 had flashed it please tell me. Thanks.

If you are afraid of bricking your card while flashing, you shouldn't think about it in the first place...

Unless you have a good reason, and getting 4 fps more is not in my head, just enjoy your product as it is...

There are ways to unbrick your card, so no worry...

Are you prepared to take him/her through the process? If you are, glad to see someone wanting to help. If not, then don't give this sort of advice...

The process is so simple a 10 year old could do it.
I guess googling is too hard these day.
I have followed simple guides to flash, volt mod, shunt mod since 2000. How the world is running backward LOL

There is no new bios for KFA2. Your card has 2 8 pin like my pny so flash the card is easy. If you are afraid of flashing, then just dont do it. I also shunt mod my card and no problem at all. I put my card under water so the temp is acceptable. What avg clock of the card in port royal right now?

Have you tried inno3d ichill x4 bios? On Techpowerup it is stated as a compatible bios.

I am also interested in knowing the results.
