I like how easy the setup looks.  I wish I had something like that for my GTX 480 that gave me higher core voltage limits.

So far, I've recommended six individual purchases for an EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1GB 01G-P3-1371 card.

Now I get to recommend this free clockspeed performance boost! Thanks EVGA!

Hmm, I'm testing from outside EVGA and it seems to be OK from here.

The FPB is for GTX 460 only.

Why? The fans can already be set to 100%.
The 104 GPU's must be really good if EVGA is confident they can all run at these overclocks. My Vanilla 480 can't go above 745 with stock volts and 780 with 1088 mV.

We'll leave the post here because it looked like the server was very busy at the time you tried the download. It downloaded for me with no problems.

As a 470 owner, I'd love a FPB, but I think that comes in the form of a manual OC :P

Good news though. I bet this will also have a 'free performance boost' in sales.

What are you talking about?  Mine could only be set to 70% before update.  Beats me why we could only set to 70% in the 1st place.

Has this fixed the start-up freeze on Win 7 64bit? I want to buy a 460 but not if the login freeze isn't fixed.

Here is the answer to the SLI update question from EVGA_NickM in another thread:

Quick question for jacobf, or anyone that may know the answer, will SLI users have to remove a card to flash them one at a time? Thanks.


No, it will automatically recognize multiple cards within windows and prompt you for each one. Then restart and that's it.
