    LOL dont get it. I manage to run the update tool after alot tryes (****ty software update)
    Finaly the software disable my driver, then say yes to update, DOS window tells me i will update from xx.xx.xx.xx to xx.xx.xx.xx. YES same version !?!?!?

    Most fun/best part is GPU-Z show same bios number as befor, BUTT sensor show NO spin on fan's now ( befor i had the spin up spin down evry 30sek) GPU-z show zero spin now.!! :banana:

    It is offical on msi forum now.

    Thanks for the heads up. How do you get this to update 2 cards SLI?

    I used it and GPU Z says first GPU is 84.04.2F.00.F1 and 2nd card is 84.04.1F.00.F1.

    Now I'm not sure which one has the new BIOS and which one does not. Also like I said above, how do I flash the other as I'm guessing it's not done it.

    I just flashed mine but modded it first a bit (i used different Nvflash than MSI supplies).
    All I did was disable card in device manager, flash the bios and reenble and reboot .
    AFAIK you need to either uninstall the driver or disable it in device manager before running Nvflash .

    Why RivaTuner? Its old and no longer supported. Use MSI Afterburner, basically a "newer" version of RivaTuner by same author Unwinder.

    I caught hold of a seller with the Gigabyte version. Will have to take it up with him whether hes got the G1 Gaming, Windforce3x, ITX version of the card. I have a bad feeling its the ITX model :(

    Was looking at 780s for a while, but their price went back up lol..

    If all cards play right, might make the purchase on 1st DEC, and get it shipped to me by 6th DEC.

    They did?

    *goes to look at his local store*..

    That would be ridiculous if prices went back up on the 7 series AT ALL..

    *Edit - just saw a 770 on for $250CDN - thats with a $100 mail in rebate.. not bad not bad..

    Well, applying import duty and other taxes, the current 970 I'm looking at (hopefully the G1 gaming) is available at 480$.

    GTX780s after the hikes again start at 550$, and the cheapest 970 from zotac is around 440$. Websites have fluctuating prices on the AMP! Omega, Extreme, MSI, GALAX editions in the 490~592$ range.

    Yes we love paying extra import duty and taxes. Sigh. Infact the seller with the GBT970 is actually selling the ZOTAC 780 reference for 670$ -_- 780s debuted at a 760$ ish price point. Man, I can't wait for my migration to get the green light.

    I thought I would bounce this around here. I have been playing around with my EVGA FTW overclocking the last few days. So far this is what I have so far with good temps and is stable.

    core 148o ish boost
    mem 7800 ish
    temp under 75c
    core volt +60
    power limit 110

    Just curious what you all think, and maube anyone else with this card may be getting.

    My EVGA GTX 970 FTW ACX 2.0 arrived Thursday, when I was at work. Very happy with it was worth stepping up from the Super Clocked the main thing is no more coil whine :D Also AC Unity runs smooth only issue I have is RTSS causes the game to crash.

    I thought spoiler tags were for spoilers. When did Guru3D start advising spoiler tags for screenshots? Or did I miss a spoiler in the screenshot?

    Coil whine is still a lottery even on FTW cards. So congrats on a coil whine free card. Hope Iam also a winner in this lottery when my MSI Gaming arrives next week.

    I am suggesting using splr codes so users (like me) you don't have big monitors (1680x1050 currently) won't have to scroll right/left.

    That's all.

    51 pages in thread so far and I think you are the first with this card.
    Is this the triple slot card with 4 fans? And what is the fan's idle RPM?
