Exclamation need help to mod the bios of my 9800 GTX - 04-08-2008, 10:41 | posts: 33 | Location: GERMANY

Hello Guys, i want to mod my 9800 GTX (Gainward Bliss 9800 GTX) bios to higher clocks... can anyone give me a step by step instruction/manual. The most important for me is which version of nvflash i should use and the full commandline including all parameters for a good flash and maybe an insturction for making a blind re-flash disk. Thanks for your help and cant wait for the answers. I am Targeting 800 - 1200 - 2000 for new clocks (stock is 675 - 1100 - 1688) and many websites on the web says it will works at these clocks.

The commandline is really the most important for me, thanks

A couple of guides as reference on how to flash.

I think you wont need to hardmod for increase voltage , you are looking for a conservative overclock not extreme , test the clocks first with Rivatuner to see if the cards its stable.

Good Luck.

Best place is Mvktech as posted above. Once you download the Nvflash there is a readme with all the commands.

I find this guide better than the one listed above http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1260590
as it includes the fan speed editing - which you may want to do if overclocking. Also it includes instructions of flashing from dos (which is safer - takes Windows out of the equation), not a command prompt.

As you said your modding the bios I assume your'll be using NiBiTor.
This would mean just editing your existing bios - you won't be changing board ID's or vendor ID's so the simple command

"NVFLASH.EXE NEWBIOS.ROM"

will flash the new bios for you.

If you are using another bios eg from another vendor then your will have to insert 'force' commands (see nvflash readme)

Good luck, enjoy your new clock speeds.

If you're looking for somebody to guide you through it, try getting in touch with Cole, the guy who started this thread: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread....30#post2661430

He pulled 910/2220/1260 from his 9800 gtx and has a screenshot showing it. Might wanna ask him how he dunnit

i finally managed to flash my bios (modded my own bios with nibitor)

i made a startdisk and booted into dos than i used these both commandlines to do it
Backup:
nvflash -b oldbios.rom
now i booted into windows and opened the bios (which is on the disk now) with nibitor and modded the bios to 820 core 2400 memory and 2000 Shader
and saved the new bios as newbios.rom to the nvflash disk (card runs higher clocks too but than it gets hot and the fan is making to much noise for me, with these settings its cool and quiet as i love it.

Flash new bios:
next step was boot into dos again and use this with nvflash
nvflash -5 -6 newbios.rom

next time you start your computer you have the new settings.

YOU ALL DO AT YOUR OWN RISK!! ITS POSSIBLE TO DAMAGE YOUR HARDWARE WHILE FLASHING / TRYING!!

You can flashback your oldbios.rom everytime you want.. should even work if you messed the flash and get no image after flashing anymore (there are ways of blindflashing or using pci-card for flashing)
