    I dont really get what u want?
    Are u saying u dont know how to falsh a bios or you dont know why u would want a modded Bios?

    Anyway, i can set your min. fan speed to 30% if u want.
    i just need your Bios ;)

    I was asking how I would flash the bios? What program would I use?

    Here is the bios. You will need to rename it *.bin. Again, if you could please set the minimum fan to 30% that would be great!

    Heres an little guide on how to flash a bios..in Dos
    http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/149879-howto-nvidia-bios-flashing.html
    or here
    http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=3433513&postcount=1
    Also you can flash it in windows.
    get this here:
    http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1824/NVFlash_5.95.0.1_for_Windows.html

    Then extract everything in one folder..
    Put the Bios also in this folder.

    Go to RUN.and type "cmd"
    no u go to that folder..(lets say u have it here: C:\NVflash)
    type:

    cd c: (enter)
    cd Nvflash (enter)
    then type DIR and u will see whats in there..
    if everything is there type:

    Nvflash.exe -5 -6 NewBios.rom (enter)
    Then it should start flashing the card..
    Theres also an tut in the nvflash folder..

    Important!!! quit everything thats running in windows, firefox, antivir, etc etc..

    Heres your Bios:
    (rename to *.rom) or just delete the .txt at the end..

    Wow, this is amazing! THANKS! :)

    On another note, and maybe there is no one answer to this, but with watercooled memory, vregs and gpu. How much volt do I dare to put on?

    I have already creamed my 2 460's to 1.212v and its fine for around 950MHz. But maybe there is room for more voltage? Or should I just leave it at that? :)

    ok, thats the upper limit my friend ;)
    Voltage @ 1.212 is the highest you can get, even with my Bios editor...
    But i think that is very high...
    what brand you have..?
    cause on that voltage you should be able to hit almost the 1 ghz .....

    Ah, I see. Should have thought as much. :)

    One of the cards can bench Heaven Unigine @1GHz but the other one seems to be a real slacker and wont go above 950. They are Zotac 1GB cards, no factory OC.

    BetA13 i have a Question i have 2 GIGABYTE GV-N460OC-1GI in SLI and Card 2
    won't go all the way down when it's Idel, Card 2 stays on Core: 405Mhz
    Shaders: 810MHz Memory: 1800MHz (3600 MHz), so my memory wont go down
    to 324 MHz, like Card 1 dos.

    And also whats strange is that Card 1 Runs in Load on 1.0250v and Idel on
    0.9120v, and Card 2 is Load on 0.9370v and Idel on 0.9370v.

    So what can i do i have already Flash my Cards with the newest Bios, and i but
    them at the same time, they are identical.

    You do know that Nibitor only works with GTX460 when u pay..
    And by the way nibitor couldnt even open an gtx460 bios when i testet it with the newest version..

    Your Bios is here: (only fan speed set to min. 30%)

    Ok, here you go:

    [​IMG]

    I only upped the Voltage Limit, nothing else..
    I do hope u got goood cooling..And dont push it to hard, ok^^

    I dont even think you gonna need all the Volt up to the limit..
    Max. i did set it for u is: 1.150 Volt..i think thats enough...
    Test it and like i sayd Keep it Cool and watch the Temps...
    If u need more Volt, and know what u are doing, just write it, max. volt i can give is 1.212 Volt

    Just rename / delete *.txt

    Thanks B3tA13, will try this tonight since iam at work now...
    About nibitor, tought i would be able to open it, but then again there is no rush, since i have to do test before deciding what voltage and core i will use and it can be done via afterburner for the time being.

    I don't know how you manage to convince Orbmu2k to share his software, but thanks for helping me!!

    Sorry man, i have no clue..i dont use SLI so i cant tell if this is normal behavior or not..

    im really sorry..

    greetz Beta...

    Edit, if u use an second monitor, the cards ram is not downclocking, thats normal and maybe this is because of sli tzo..but i dont know, maybe u should ask this in the Nvidia Forum..
