If I recall correctly, the GTX 465 is just a 470 with the wrong BIOS. The first 465's that hit the market were actually 470s with the 465 bios installed on accident (this was fixed by a bios flash.) So I'm sure you could easily flash it from a 465 to a 470, as long as the card itself can handle it.

Haha.

Comics, the both of you.

But bump for the thread.

And interested in the cooler if it gets parted....just say'n.

 

I read that one site tried to flash a total of 12 and ended up with 8 bricked cards......

sounds like it aint worth the risk if you can afford to fry a gtx 465 you can afford to buy a 470. Id be intrested to see if anyone here has done it though and what the benches are like.

Haha oh wow. I had no idea that anything had gone awry for anyone in the past with this. I was just stating what I had heard.

 

This is why it's a good thing to have a large community, some of us are idiots and the rest put us in our place. XD

:bah: that's what RMA's are for :whistling: , I'd rather have a 470 WAY more than a 465....in fact I'd never want a 465, they're pretty dumb when the 460 is stronger, cheaper and more efficient.

Though I'd be intrigued to try this :evilgrin:

Not really, thats what makes it hard for the people who really do have something go bad with their hardware.

 

The early cards may have been able to do it based on the amount of memory modules on the PCB but on a new card just I would not do it!

not to mention that tutorial said you had to clear the eeprom which can be bad news if it goes wrong. i'm with cookeman on this one, unless you got the 1st round of 465s and can verify the he PCB don't try it or you going to had a big paper weight.

Be very careful and make sure you save your old bios and have a pci video card so you don't have to do a blind flash.

While we are on the subject you need to count your memory chips if you have 10 then you do have a 465 that can be flashed to a 470.

10=320bit 8=256bit BTW.

I have read about the PNY cards almost all have 10 mem chips.

I am getting a Msi 465 tomorrow from Newegg I do not think it was a bad deal for 203.99 + a $20 rebate+just cause2 + metro 2033+ Nivida store choice 1 of three games Resident Evil 5, Street Fighter or Dark Void.

I will be counting the memory chips.

Also ASUS has a program that will safely unlock the shaders to a 470 if you are uncomfortable with bios flashing.

Look for 465_Unlock.zip  or 465Upgrade

I was just kidding :rolleyes: , unless I was sure I had an unlockable original I wouldnt do it.
