As the title states I need an Ln2 bios to fix an issue I have with one of my cards.

There's a problem when running the card in the top slot (pulling heat off the 2nd Gpu) and the card starts to mildly throttle at around 82c

If the cards in the bottom slot there really isn't a problem until I start clocking it up, also I need to raise the Power limit to 50% to stop the mild throttling.

So I asked around and was told from a respected member here that I need to get my hands on a Ln2 bios because there's a thermal issue with the bios on the card.

Any help finding such a bios would be great or any sugestions on a Bios to use.

The card is the V1 MSI 290 TFIV gaming

Start by updating your BIOS before using a homemade BIOS by I don't know who.
Download MSI Live Update 6 download.msi.com/uti_exe/LiveUpdate.zip.
That was the first thing I did. MSI forums are useless as tits on a toad. I love how the bios writer Svet never does a thing for requested BIOSes. Glad I have a goto guy on this but he's busy and I respect that so I'll wait ;)
