One thing I'd like to note is my FTW2 is a "DT" model.

I just RMA'd and received a new one "Shipped out" from EVGA on the 20th Dec 2017 however it has the same BIOS with the same problem.

I dont think I'll ever have any luck.

Perhaps it's only for the FTW2 and not the DT model?

It's stated in the forum post and on EVGA's website it's for the DT model, the support staff also concurred its for the DT model as well.

The guys from EVGA, please make a bios with more aggressive fans with no "zefo fan speed"!

p.s. Once again I repeat for the slow-moving - I do not want to use soft control when the BIOS can control the fans.

Hi I can't seem to see the image you posted, do you have a link?
Also, do you still need the secondary Bios? I have a copy of it that I made



No i have it .Thank you.
 
 techpowerup.com/vgabios/197300/197300
 
 




Hi @Nick_86
 
Reading the thread it looks like this BIOS image you have uploaded is the Master BIOS of your GTX1080 FTW2 card v 86.04.60.00.80. Could you confirm that please?
 
After a long series of dumb moves, I ended up with both BIOS's borked by the BIOS's linked at the top of this thread, and both BIOS's MemClocks stuck at 405 MHz. I had a backup of my Slave BIOS but not my Master BIOS. I have recovered all functions of the card with my backup slave, and your copy of the BIOS as master.
 
But is your copy actually the Master BIOS?
 
I am assuming there is a difference between Master and Slave.
 
Thanks :)
 
EDIT: The forum isn't allowing me to post hyperlinks, that's why the techpowerup link is not quoted in full above

Hello @jumpjet777
Master bios is 86.04.60.00.80
Slave bios is 86.04.60.01.80
 
Master bios has zero speed fans and low power target
Slave bios has 16% gpu fan and maximum power target.

Thanks for the info ............. damn I don't know what's gone wrong, I think I have 86.04.60.00.80 in both BIOS's.
 
The Master is correct for sure, but I need to re-boot now to check the slave.
 
BRB .................

Phew!
 
No I am OK, the Slave is 86.04.60.01.80
 
That also confirms that the one you uploaded was indeed teh Master, and I used it as a master.
 
Thank you for your help, and your quick reply here .............. I can rest easy from now on, after an horrific 7 or 8 hours last night trying to get the card out of the  memclock mode, messing around with drivers, backups, and restore points
 
Cheers :D
 
EDIT: It's interesting that the slave is the correct version number 86.04.60.01.80, but it doesn't have those fan and power attributes set. It's running with zero fan right now, and power target 100%, exactly the same as the Master

Everytime you switch your bios from slave to master you need to
1)uninstall drivers
2)Use ddu
3)reinstall drivers... :)

Ah I see. I just did that during my fault finding, not when flipping the BIOS switch.


Very useful info, thanks for that, I've never had a dual bios card ....... can you tell that I've come from 15+ years of only using ATI/AMD cards? :D    <<<<<<--------- don't answer that ;-)

Hi,
 
I've been emailing back and forth with support on my FTW2 (non-DT).  I can't get past this error.  Has anyone seen this and been able to beat it?

Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I think you should not be flashing to that BIOS, it's not compatible, that's what I did, and my memclock dropped and stuck at 405 Mhz (when it should be 10000 Mhz+. I have only just fixed it.
 
If you have the BIOS's Nick_86 mentioned above :-
 
Master bios is 86.04.60.00.80
Slave bios is 86.04.60.01.80
 
.... they should not be flashed to :-
 
86.04.3B.40.81
86.04.3B.41.81
 
Cheers

I appreciate the quick response and am sorry that happened to you.  I wonder what the technical reason is.  I will leave it be for now.

I think that cards with this BIOS 86.04.60.00.80/81 (like ours have) have this 11Ghz function already available
 
I have only done some quick benchmarks so far, I didn't see higher than 5006 Mhz (effective 10012 mhz) when in default mode. However when I set my Memclock to +500 mhz in Precision XOC (with no other adjustments), I got 5506 Mhz (11012 Mhz effectively). I haven't done a long stress test yet, but is seems to be working perfectly in all the benchmarking software.
 
I assumed the BIOS's at the top of this thread would boost to 11k automatically. perhaps cards with our BIOS can go to 11k boost, but we need to set it manually, or via an automatic +500 Mhz saved profile. i.e 2D profile is stock 10k and my 3D profile is 11k. As soon as I run game Precision XOC changes the card to the 11k profile. Precision XOC must be running for this to happen, no Precision XOC = Stock 10k speed

I guess from your reply that it means I was wrong above (post 288), and he should carry on a flash the BIOS?
 
I don't want to post false information if it can be avoided :)

Thanks for the info.  The 11Ghz BIOS flash (at least the one I've found) is provided in the form of an executable.  How do I extract the .rom?
 
Thanks.

You don't. EVGA will need to give you the .rom by itself.

Thanks.  I did ask them if they were able to provide a copy but they said they did not have it.  I'm wondering if someone who has successfully updated the firmware on their 6686 using the executable method provided by EVGA can pull the .rom from their card and share?

The .rom listed in post #295 is the 11 GHz master .rom.

Master 11 GHz .rom: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/191353/191353
Slave 11 GHz .rom: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/191610/191610 (says it's for the ftw2 dt, but that is incorrect, it's actually for the ftw2 6686 model.)

Well -- Good news and bad news!
 
1. I was able to flash my 6686 with the roms you provided.
2. My memory clock got stuck on 405Mhz :-( (even during Superposition benchmark).
3. Reverted back to backup of BIOS I had, no problem.
 
One oddity I noticed was that in GPU-Z, stock BIOS reports memory clock before DDR conversion (1251Mhz).  With 11Ghz BIOS, it was at 5501Mhz.  I wonder if the card is going into limp mode because it has no clue what do with 5501Mhz (22,000Mhz DDR )
