  1. thanks for this lads when you say " create a fresh copy containing appropiate files and bios rom". what are the appropiate files i need ? do i still have to create a bootable floppy disc ?? first before i put the other files onto the floppy ?then do i have to make the pc boot from the floppy ? and also can i just change the bios name to " newbios.rom " p.s - if i were to RMA the BFG card would i get the same card back ?? or could i get a better card back like a GTX . i have spoke to BFG and i have my RMA number ready to go , i would rather have a GTX than 2 x gts . this is an idea someone else told me about ,
  2. can some one give me a link to a detailed step by step guide on how to flash a gpu bios , or by looking at my posts above can someone tell me what exactly to write at the /A prompt when i reboot and boot into nvflash ?? please im desperate to get these two cards to run in sli. or does anyone have one of the same cards that they will swap for the other one of mine , what i mean is if you have a PNY 8800gts 320mb will you swap it for my BFG 8800gts oc 320mb card or the other way round . Or could i send you my card and you flash the Bios for me ...
  3. right i added a few ------ to the comand line and now im getting an error message saying - " Nvflash cannot read this file " please anyone any ideas on how i can get a PNY 8800gts & a BFG 8800gtsoc to run together in sli.
  4. its not that i want one its just that a lad from another forum who i talk to alot said he had one and that they were for sale at about £500 each , ,,, we were asked to list our pc specs and we all put what we have and he came in saying that he had one of these in his pc , we all think its a lie but i wanted to be sure. as it says in the link also that they are $495 for 10,000 units ..
  5. ok radodrill i have both cards now and ive put the two in together but there is no sli , i can not find an option in the bios to enable sli and i can not find it in the nvidia control panel , i set the bfg card to the same clock speed as the pny one anyway i have tried both cards each way round and windows only detects the one card thats in the first slot , So i tried to flash a copy of the pny bios to the bfg card i have followed the bios flashing procedure but then i get a error saying " Firmwire image needs to have a .rom extention " . what does that mean ?? i made the bootable disk and put nvflash & cwsdpmi & the bios file which is called P.N.Y.8800gtsMB.PCIe.320MB.Rev.01.rom onto the bootable floppy disc. so when i restart and i get the /A prompt i then type in - nvflash.exe 4 5 6 Y P.N.Y.8800gts.PCIe.320MB.Rev.01.rom this did not work , i got the same error message , i then changed the bios name to just - Newbios.rom so at the /A prompt i typed in nvflash.exe. 4 5 6 Y Newbios.rom and i got the same error message . can you please help me out a bit and please be very step by step if possible .
  6. has anyone ever seen one of these cpu's - http://www.tilera.com/products/processors.php its a 64 core cpu //////// would it be poss to use one of these in a normal everyday pc
  7. i have flashed a gpu bios before so i can do that , which should i do ?? and what do you mean by the same architecture ??? they are both 320mb cards if thats any help.
  8. i have a pny 8800gts 500/1600 clock speeds , could i add to it a BFG 8800gts oc 550/1600 clock speeds ?? i know i will either have to over or un-clock one of the cards but will they be ok to run in sli ??
  9. is running two 8 series gpu's in sli the same as it was with the 7series , what i mean is can i use two different card venders or do they have to be the same like 2x bfg or 2x xfx or could i use my pny 8800gts with a bfg 8800gts and run them in sli ???

    everest

    i aggree with all of you , everest is a top piece of software but for some reason it will not give me a cpu temp reading , it will give me cpu core temps but not just cpu,ive uped my fsb to 300 x 9 = 2.7 now and my temps are lower that last night by 1 degree,

    everest

    ive just had this reply from everest email support , "Hi Which CPU temperature are you looking for? CPU, or CPU Core temperatures? If you're looking for the CPU temperature, then please check the value displayed in the Asus PC Probe II for this sensor " are they telling me not to use theres and to use another product .... has ayone used pc probe II before ?? how acurate are the temps from it , i dont get my cpu temp from everest but all the other ones match to pc probe and my cpu is reading 30 c with an o/c of 10% - 293 x 9 = 2637 , that seams a very low and good temp i think.
