Got bios core volt uncapping to work
Nice.. I wana be going down the same route in a few days
Will only do it for you if you understand the risks. I take no responsibility.
I keep telling myself I got myself one of the 'better' cards, but even IF I have I won't ever be pushing it above 1.1v, I keep hearing that's probably the wise/sweet spot, so it'll do me.
I''ve been getting close to 950mhz on the core at 1.087v so even if I just do it so I have one single run at 1.1v and hopefully 1000mhz on the core...
...but yes I do understand the risks, and would be guttered if thing's went wrong, I'll just worry about that if the time came.
Count me in boy's! I picked up A Sparkle GTX460 768mb for $159.00 @ MicroCenter. Currently have her clocked @ 875/1750/900/1.0vcore. Fan is @ 60% and only 45C folding 100%. Great card this is. I will definitely pick up another.
My old Sparkle 768mb was a beast. At 1.087v, it ran at almost 950 core/1900 shader. Give it a shot buck!
Yeah, these cards are folding champs!
Agreed!!!! WU crashed when I went for 940/1880 @ 1.087v(15087ppd). This seems to be a sweet spot.
A liitle much you think?
Try to game a bit too if you get a second one Too much gaming awesomeness going to waste with 2 if they just fold
Yesterday hit my first 1080p gaming, still goes strong, but picked up the lag/under 70% usage in BC2, so going to try the beta drivers to remedy that.
i don't think i would actually feel a difference from my clocks it's only a 100mhz more on the core than mine when i game and 200mhz on the memory but now knowns u are maxed out on my i ain't yet
I haven't even tried overclocking my GPU i'm too scared my psu can't cope lol but anyways has anybody tried Mafia 2 with PhysX enabled and got good framerate?
i played Mafia 2 with everything on max with PhysX enabled in 1080p and Jimmy's Vendetta without lagging i dunno about the frame rate but it was oki
medium or high physx settings??
Uncap your GTX460
**I take no responsibility, if you do this you are on your own.**
Open original bios from GPUz in Nibitor 5.7:
Change Device ID to GTX470 and save as "GF104b.bin"
Close all nibitor windows and re-launch nibitor: open GF104b.bin then go to "Tools>>Fermi Voltage" area marked is what needs changed to 1.2125v:
Then change your device ID back in the adv info box:
Click rescan bios and click "Ok"
Then "Save bios" as GF104mod.rom. I suggest flashing in a pure DOS environment. FreeDOS has been known to brick cards.
If I have not covered anything please ask.
Oh and don't forget to always live by these words:
holy hell, since uncapping voltage from 1087mv you guys are rocking these cards now more than ever! damn good show.
Yup yup. Those ones with good samples will definitely want to purchase an aftermarket cooler now.
im picking one up in 2 weeks boys maybe 2 cards who knows depends if it yanks my crank the right way! either way im going to be in and you can count on me upping this shit out of the voltage and benching the piss out of the card. i have a backup so if i kill well oh well thats what evga lifetime warranty if for!!
Just be prudent...I have managed to kill one of these with those volts. I do have another on the way.
here is the settings i have used, and yes i always play with vsync and antialiasing off:
I really need you help
I hafe big trouble with my Bios on the MSI N460GTX HAWK 1GIGS card...
MSI have sending me the wrong BIOS and say it´s the one.
Will it be possible for one of your to upload the original MSI HAWK Bios in the tread below??
Msi n460 gtx hawk
Thanmk you very much
Lol after all that in your origional thread I think I might have found one for you, make sure you open it in Nibitor to double check clock speeds.................
Link might be playing up, go to the MVKtech site > downloads > Nvidia > Bios files > MSI > page 9 you will see the 460 Hawk (HK).
You can either go through the trouble of flashing this bios. Or just clock your card back up to what it should be rated at with Afterburner.
Check out his origional thread..... we have been there
Add me to the list.
Here is my mine-review I did: [Mini-Review] eVGA GTX460 1GB EE vs. eVGA GTX470
Question for those who are uncapping the voltage. What are your mosfet area temperatures, if you know? I fear uncapping the voltage is going to bake the GTX460s that don't have mosfet cooling. I've got some enzotech coolers ordered to put on mine before I do any overvolting beyond the 1087 stock maximum.
