EVGA apparently hasn't addressed the issue that none of the LHR versions of older cards (anything non-TI in other words) work with existing bios.
 
We need BIOS for all of them, in my case 3080 ftw3 ultra LHR version. Not a single bios available for 3080 ftw3's or hybrids is compatible, but they were still happy to sell me a hybrid kit that fits even if the bios aren't available to get it working in PX1 properly.


Noted.  I don't currently have LHR BIOS for any of the cards (unless you count 3080 Ti).  I will request them.




Glad this is on your radar!

Hopefully it gets done soon, I had to RMA my non LHR card and got an LHR card in its place.  I already have the kit reapplied and just need to be able to change the bios at this point.

Tried this BIOS update to update my 3080ti (3967) to a hybrid; and it worked successfully!
Thank you!

I ordered an EK GPU block that should be arriving in the near future, so I'm looking forward to putting my card on water. Aside from that, even Kombustor shows my power limit being 112.5% with the slider maxed using PX1, which should mean total max power output at 393.75w. I just used Kombustor and monitored the GPU power using HWiNFO64 and saw a max draw of 449.3w, so I guess it's true that it is a 450w max. Not sure why earlier I was only seeing 392w. Glad to know nothing's wonky with my card.
 
 




I have an ek block on mine, The temps are great. 46c and 50c mem junction after running about 20 mins at full load. I used hydronaut and thermalright odyssey for the memory. One 85x45x1mm sheet was just barely enough for the memory.


Did you cut the Thermalirght Odyssey into individual squares for the memory, or use strips where you could? I got some and plan to block my 3080 Ti in the near future. I know EK’s provided thermal pads are usually pre-cut for the memory and one usually has to cut strips for the VRM.

Hey, is there any advantage to using hydro copper bios on an air card that had its stock cooler replaced with a water block? Also, what's the best source for EVGA GPU BIOS? Is techpowerup.com the go-to, or is there another repository?

Yes, higher power limits could be attained. Best source would be evga tech support. 2nd best would be techpowerup.com/vgabios.

Yeah, I have the files.  I just don't have the time, unfortunately.  I'll see what I can do, though.

A few projects of mine were pushed back overnight, so I'll update as much as I can today.

Good deal, and thank you. Question: would FTW3 hydro copper BIOS offer any advantage over an air card’s BIOS that a water block has been added to? Someone alluded to the HC version having a higher power limit.

Re: EVGA GeForce 30 Series HYBRID/XOC/Default BIOS Thread 2021/07/16 19:16:35 (permalink)
Unlikely, since the cards do not have a higher power limit compared to air-cooled or HYBRID cards.  The HC cards also use a slightly different layout with SP caps near the memory chips for better waterblock mounting, which none of the other cards have.  Using the HC BIOS, then, could have some negative effects on non-HC cards due to different components.  On the other hand, if you have an HC card and want to try a different BIOS, I've been told that there shouldn't be any issues with the non-HC BIOS options; however, that's not a definite 100%.

Just curious, I Updated my Bios with the New LHR Bios's (Thank You :). Precision is still looks the same as it did before, saying I have a "GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra" nothing about "Hybrid",
is this normal? or am I missing something.
Thanks for all the hard work you guys do.

Well, at least my air card is an excellent overclocker with stock BIOS, and especially on water. Thanks for letting me know.

It seems like the New LHR bios's that turn the 3080 ftw3 ultra into Hybrids aren't correct. I found this vid of what I thought the new bios should do.

Hope this gets fixed soon

This doesn’t really say a whole lot. What is incorrect about the BIOS, what vid are you referring to, and what do you think the BIOS should do?

So, what doesn’t work right about the 3080 FTW3 Ultra Hybrid BIOS? Is your card just not installing it?

Hello, both bios's exe seem to install fine, but when i go to xi it shows the card as a 3080 ftw ultra, not a ultra hybrid. the pic of the link i posted shows a guy that went from a 3090 ftw ultra to a ultra hybrid, and xi showed the change in the title and the correct number of fans for the hybrid.
Thanks for any info.

silly question, as I found out the hard way myself, after you ran the bios flash exe, did you reboot?  You have to fully reboot, and then when it logs back in, and you open Precision, then it does the real flash.  After I did that, precision showed that I have the 3080ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid.  I didn't really see that last step, so I just thought I'd throw it out there just in case.
 


 
Thermaltake Tower 900  || 5950X w/Artic Freezer II 420 ||ASROCK X570 Taichi  || EVGA 3080 ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid || 32gb 3200ghz ddr4 || 2x1TB NMVE || 2Tb NMVE || EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 P2 || AIRIST R-2R DAC + THX AAA 789 + AEON RT Closed  || Plus so much more ;p

Hello Ibbanez, Thanks for the suggestion, and sorry for the slow reply (Power went out for 5 hrs). Yes I did what you suggested, even tried uninstall and reinstall Precision, made sure CSM and Fast boot were both off, and reran the exe's, then rebooted then tried Precision just before I wrote this. Just to make sure I didnt have a brain fart. I know the LHR bios's were a new release, i hope its possible something may need to be adjusted in the exe. I did notice that Precision takes around 20 -30 seconds to load, not sure if this is normal, never used it before. Any more suggestions is appreciated.

BIOS Flashes for EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 LHR cards

PSA#3: DON'T FLASH AN LHR CARD TO A NON-LHR BIOS. I KNOW YOU'RE THINKING IT. JUST.DON'T.





Ok, but I did earlier because another EVGA thread (won't let me link) showed up in my Google search results before this thread and I didn't realize there were different sets of BIOS. So it went through and now my -KL model card is using the non-LHR BIOS on the OC switch and X1 is still allowing me to pull 118% power draw.
 
I can't seem to flash from the current state to the LHR BIOS provided in this thread and I'm worried that if I flash the non-LHR default BIOS is may not work. Any advice? Just walk away and carry on? Should I just count my blessings that I didn't mess it up?

What are differences between ftw3 ultra, hybrid and hyrocopper? I assume they're all XOC, so just card name in X1 and fan behavior? (i.e. hydrocopper ignores all the fans and such)
