    Hello

    I have a xfx 9600gt and I want to update the bios due to the 100% fan speed during bootup issue.

    XFX says there isn't a bios update available for this model (pv-t94p-ydf4) :(

    I've downloaded another XFX 9600GT bios but it seems to be incompatible:

    Current - Version:62.94.11.00.00 ID:10DE:0622:1682:2362
    G94 Board - 05450010 (Normal Board)
    Compare with - Version:62.94.68.00.96 ID:10DE:0622:1682:4012
    G94 Board - 05450019 (Normal Board)

    ERROR: Mismatch at offset 0x00000002

    I absolutely HATE the 100% fan speed during bootup...is there some way I can fix it from within Win7 x64?

    Should the BIOS with a different ID be safe to use with my card?

    Yes just use nibitor to change the bios to match your card's ID.

    Cool thanks!

    I edited it to match everything under adv. info in nibitor, but I get this error upon flashing now:

    Checking for matches between display adapter(s) and image(s)...

    Adapter: GeForce 9600 GT (10DE,0622,1682,2362) H:NRM B:01,PCI,D:00,F:00

    WARNING: Firmware image Board ID (9431) does not match adapter Board ID (9404).

    ERROR: Board ID mismatch

    Is this normal? Should I try and force it to continue anyway?

    Ok so I ended up modifying its current BIOS, but I can't seem to fix the high fan speed problem. Do I need to set the PWM freq to low maybe?
    Under "temperatures" I have everything set to 35% and under the IC settings it's set to a fixed 35% and high freq PWM.

    All of those values are set to 35% but I still get 100% fan speed during bootup until the driver is loaded. :(

    Ehm , let me first say this:

    1- You shouldn't change that setting. It's kinda Fail-safe to keep your graphics card cool.
    2- Are you using a 9600GT Mobile graphics card or a actual PCI-E 9600GT graphics card.
    3- If you using 9600 Mobile , you would probably brick your graphics card if ya try to flash it with a normal PCI-E 9600GT BIOS. (mainly cause the actual way the card is build is completely different.

    Oké, but if you are perfectly oké with flashing it with an incompatible BIOS. I could give you my BIOS

    Here is a screen shot of my GPU-Bios of my card:

    The card doesn't need that failsafe :p
    It's a normal PCI-e card
    I gave up on it so no thanks.

    Dude then maybe change your Video-card in your signature to a 9600GT and not a 9600M GT , cause M stands for mobile

    note the JHL90 + P8600 + Sager N2096 bits...it's pretty obvious that I also have a laptop.
