Updated Nvidia 7800GT Bios - Overclocked - No Floppy Needed

Postby hoxlund on Tue Oct 10, 2006 1:52 am

Phew, finally got it done, i not only updated my video card's bios to the latest version, but I also managed to get a damn good overclock out of it too

right now im running much higher gpu core and memory speeds then a factory overclocked 7800gtx,

500mhz on the core gpu speed
1200mhz on the memory speed

runs idle at 39C/102F, loaded to 55C/131F

to stress the video card i was running video stability test for 2 minutes 30 seconds, after that it wasn't getting any hotter so i let it go for another minute, still no change, got my max load temp

god damn this zalman gpu heatsink/fan is freakin sweet:

oops almost forgot, i don't have a floppy drive in this computer, or in my apartment

i made a bootable usb drive, learned from here:

was a huge help

then just copied the bios files and flash utility to the same 2gb memorex usb drive then booted off it
