    Hello, i flashed my bios for my gtx680, i used nvflash, and i followed these steps

    extract the nvflash files to C:\
    save the BIOS file to C:\
    open elevated cmd window (hit start button, type "cmd", right click cmd icon, run as administrator)
    change directory to C:\ (type " cd C:\ " )
    OPTIONAL: type " nvflash --protectoff " then hit enter (turns off any error msg that may result from software write protection)
    BACKUP ORIGINAL BIOS: Type " nvflash -b backup.rom " and a copy of your bios will be saved to the nvflash directory
    type " nvflash -4 -5 -6 (bios name).rom "
    wait for it to finish
    reboot



    I want to ask you if i did the proper and right thing to flash the bios. This is the most proper method to flash a bios ?

    If it's working, then you flashed it correctly. :)

    But to answer your question, yes.
