 Hi guys welcome to my forum post!
  
   Just wanted to ask the whole EVGA community to get together for a second and take the time to help me make a 980 ti bios with pretty high voltage. (not high enough to blow up my pc lol)
So I was wondering if I could have someone make a tutorial with me on this forum step by step, I have looked on other websites, but none
of them make it easy for a novice to understand. There is just 4 questions I got and would really appreciate it if a good portion of you join this forum and actually reply, I see a lot threads dying for no reason.... and frankly that annoys me since the answers are never really given.
 
The specific card I am getting    -----    http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-4995-KR
 
1. Does the bios have to be from the same exact card?
(Eg. Gtx 980 ti modded reference bios with 1.3v--- to---- GTX 980 ti ACX cooler) will I have a different fan curve?
 
2. What are the steps to reverse flash (Say I decide to sell the card and want to put the stock bios back on there).
 
3. what is the difference between these 3 pre made voltage bios....  *see pictures at the bottom or link*
http://www.overclock.net/t/1558645/official-nvidia-gtx-980-ti-owners-club 
  (If you refer to a picture please refer a specific one) Eg. "In pic 1 it means etc etc"
 
4. Should I just ask someone to make me a custom bios mod for this specific card or what bios would you select for this card?
 
 
If I can get help from all of you to help me put a modded bios on the 980 TI I will gladly make a video for others who come in search to do the same. I hope also to anyone who is in my situation gets their questions answered by someone who is knowlegable in this, feel free to put any posts on here and I will answer them to my best ability. I am a semi novice at bios flashing and modding, So please go easy in here and simple. Lets do this guys!
 
 
P.S. If the pictures are rendering very small, right click the photos and open them in a new tab. I do not know if it is the forum bugging it.
 
 
VERSION 1  By the way everyone if you want the final bios here it is.
All the other ones are not as stable as this one. 84.00.32.00.90
Thanks to Sajin for the finalized bios!  http://www.mediafire.com/download/08kgg9vh6hjs0t6/1420X.rom
 
 
 
VERSION 2  If you have RECENTLY  bought a 980 TI  I guess EVGA changed the bios in the new batch of 980 ti so if the first one does not work try this one, if your gpu bios has these numbers then you have the newer batch and need to use this 2.0 version made by Nemesis11  84.00.41.00.90      http://www.filedropper.com/1420v2 
 
 
VERSION 3 just using this one at the moment and so far pretty good on it, no dips in MHz what so ever Thanks to Sniperguru

Re: GTX 980 TI BIOS/VOLTAGE HACK 2015/07/02 04:50:30 (permalink)
first, spend $20 more and get a Classified <- dual bios card
you can copy your bios with GPU-Z
read,read,read before attempting to flash or modifiy the firmware on any gpu
heres a couple of links that will help:

^^^ This is a little out of my level of messing with Maxwell bios editor, I was giving hope in someone making a bios for hack for this card in reasonable limits, Kind of like the skyn3t bios for the 780 ti  *see link for the example*
 
 By the way lets just stick with this card in the forum post.   I know there are better cards for this, but this is in the name of science!

also, overvolting the gpu is not the answer, unless your going extreme (LN2 or DICE)
and you can only unlock voltage limits on the 980Ti (not recommended and dont help anyway on air-water) on the Classified or soon to be KPE edition. ( or similar cards from other manufacturers. )
 
 
someone correct me if I am wrong

Re: GTX 980 TI BIOS/VOLTAGE HACK 2015/07/02 05:10:03 (permalink)
I plan on putting it under a water cooler soon so no worries man
 
- Just need boost to be disabled. 1.3v would be nice and a higher power limit, nothing too insane!
 
If this can be done I will make a video tutorial and post it here on
 
-how to reverse bios flash to stock
 
-how to flash the modded bios
 
-Lastly what to do step by step
 
some people are visual learners (me for example) so I am sure there are others who would appreciate this if not now, then in the future.
 
 
I am an over clocker junkie and would love to squeeze performance out of the card.

just be careful, also take a look at :
http://www.guru3d.com/fil...nspector-download.html
 
 
dont trust software based voltage readings, they dont work!!!
again, you would need a probe it connector to do this properly
(only on classified and KPE)
 
Best of luck with this

Thanks man and I know this all a risk, I am aware of all the risks there are, but I just want a simplified answer on this. The 780 TI skyn3t post was a great post! I just want to go moreee in-depth with my post for any one else who stumbles across this forum post. So if anyone would like to answer some of the questions for a semi newbie that would be nice :)

AWESOME POST :D ! Now I just need a few of those other questions answered and I am good to go for a bios flash when the card arrives!
 
 Also the video will be coming soon if everything goes as planned.

BTW
 
This isn't really for my build, I ordered a 980 ti for myself and one for my brother. We are going to bios flash his, I paid for both of them so they are both technically mine. I ordered one from EVGA and the other from Amazon. I plan to flash only the amazon card and  the other one will be kept stock so I can keep my warranty :D

You don't NEED a special connector which is only available on certain cards. You can just stick a multimeter probe on any of the inductor outputs or voltage regulating capacitors' positive side sharing the same trace as the inductor output. The inductors and capcitors are usually quite large with large solder pads and usually either the inductor or capacitor (or both) have a leg through the PCB which makes accessing it easy on the backside without removing the heatsink.

Re: GTX 980 TI BIOS/VOLTAGE HACK 2015/07/02 10:20:47 (permalink) ☼ Best Answerby cdc-951 2015/07/02 11:43:49
1. No, any modded 980 Ti vbios will work. Max voltage you can achieve is 1.28v as your card is based off the nvidia 980 ti reference pcb. Reference pcb's are limited to 1.28v.
 
2. Exactly the same way you flashed it except you have to flash the default vbios back instead of the modded one.
 
3. Circled in green are the differences...



 
4. Nope. Just use the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv vbios over at overclock.net to get your card up to the max of 1.28v. 
 
How to backup original vbios before flashing:
 
#1 Run command prompt via administrator. 
- Windows 7: Press the start button and type "cmd", right click "cmd" and select run as administrator.  
- Windows 8: Press the Windows Key & X keys together, right click "command prompt" and select run as administrator. 
#2 Type the following commands into the command prompt... "cd  c:\users\<your users name here>\desktop\nvflash" without quotes and hit enter.
#3 Type nvflash --save Default_980Ti.rom. Default vbios will be stored inside nvflash folder. 
 
 
How to properly flash your card:
 
#1 Install winrar.
#2 Download latest version of nvflash to your desktop.
#3 Download the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv vbios from overclock.net to your desktop.
#4 Right click 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.zip located on the desktop and select "Extract to 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv\, a folder will be created on your desktop named "980Ti-SC-425-1281mv" for you.
#5 Right click nvflash.zip located on the desktop and select "Extract to nvflash\, a folder will be created on your desktop named "nvflash" for you.
 
Flashing procedure for single cards:

#1 Move the "980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.rom" vBIOS located inside the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv folder into the nvflash folder via drag and drop. 
#2 Run command prompt via administrator. 
- Windows 7: Press the start button and type "cmd", right click "cmd" and select run as administrator.  
- Windows 8/10: Press the Windows Key & X keys together, right click "command prompt" and select run as administrator. 
#3 Type the following commands into the command prompt... "cd  c:\users\<your users name here>\desktop\nvflash" without quotes and hit enter. 
- Type "nvflash --protectoff" without quotes and hit enter. (Turns off write protection on the card. Some cards will need to have this disabled before you can flash the card so always perform this command before flashing.) 
- Type "nvflash -6 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.rom" without quotes and hit enter. 
#4 If you get an error stating "Firmware image PCI Subsystem ID <xxxx.xxxx> does not match adapter PCI Subsystem ID <xxxx.xxxx>" just ignore the error (this error will cause no harm, it's just letting you know you are changing the subvendor on the card.) and continue on flashing by pressing "Y" to override the error. nvflash should now start to flash your modded vBIOS to the card and complete by saying the flash was succsessful. 
#5 Restart PC. (NVIDIA drivers should automatically detect and install the card, if not, you may need to uninstall the drivers and re-install them.)
 
Flashing procedure for multiple cards: (Flash one card at a time to prevent issues. DO NOT FLASH ALL CARDS AT THE SAME TIME.) 

#1 Move the "980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.rom" vBIOS located inside the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv folder into the nvflash folder via drag and drop. 
#2 Run command prompt via administrator. 
- Windows 7: Press the start button and type "cmd", right click "cmd" and select run as administrator.  
- Windows 8/10: Press the Windows Key & X keys together, right click "command prompt" and select run as administrator.
#3 Type the following commands into the command prompt... "cd  c:\users\<your users name here>\desktop\nvflash" without quotes and hit enter.  
- Type "nvflash --index=0 --protectoff" without quotes and hit enter. (Turns off write protection on card #1. Some cards will need to have this disabled before you can flash the card so always perform this command before flashing.) 
- Type "nvflash --index=0 -6 BIOSNAME.rom" without quotes and hit enter. (Replace BIOSNAME.rom with whichever VBIOS you placed into the nvflash folder. This will flash card #1.) 
#4 If you get an error stating "Firmware image PCI Subsystem ID <xxxx.xxxx> does not match adapter PCI Subsystem ID <xxxx.xxxx>" just ignore the error (this error will cause no harm, it's just letting you know you are changing the subvendor on the card from EVGA to NVIDIA.) and continue on flashing by pressing "Y" to override the error. nvflash should now start to flash your VBIOS to the modded VBIOS and complete by saying the flash was succsessful. 
#5 Restart PC. (NVIDIA drivers should automatically detect and install the card, if not, you may need to uninstall the drivers and re-install them.)  
#6 Perform steps #2 through #5 until you have successfully flashed all cards. Don't forget to change --index=0 to --index=1,2, or 3 to flash cards 2,3, or 4.
 
Notes: Disabling the display adapter is no longer needed in the newer version of nvflash.

WOW THANKS MAN this is a very great step by step process! +1 on rep man! I will be making a video soon when the amazon shipment of my 980 ti comes in for anyone who still wants to learn this visually. So if anyone is subcirbed to this forum post check back on here by Thursday of next week.

Re: GTX 980 TI BIOS/VOLTAGE HACK 2015/07/02 11:58:49 (permalink)
can 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.rom be re named to x.rom? Will re naming also affect anything?
 
 
-Lastly the protect off command..... What if I had to sell this card and wanted to put the stock bios back in the card for the buyer, would leaving protect off be bad? Can I turn it back on after I flash the stock bios?

Yes, you can rename it to whatever you like. When flashing you would have to type "nvflash -6 x.rom" instead. Leaving protect off won't hurt anything. Yes, you can turn protect back on after flashing by using the --protecton command.

4. Nope. Just use the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv vbios over at overclock.net to get your card up to the max of 1.28v. 
 
How to backup original vbios before flashing:
 
#1 Run command prompt via administrator. 
- Windows 7: Press the start button and type "cmd", right click "cmd" and select run as administrator.  
- Windows 8: Press the Windows Key & X keys together, right click "command prompt" and select run as administrator. 
#2 Type the following commands into the command prompt... "cd  c:\users\<your users name here>\desktop\mbt.nvflash" without quotes and hit enter.
#3 Type nvflash --save Default_980Ti.rom. Default vbios will be stored inside mbt.nvflash folder. 
 
 
How to properly flash your card:
 
#1 Install winrar.
#2 Download latest version of nvflash to your desktop.
#3 Download the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv vbios from overclock.net to your desktop.
#4 Right click 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.zip located on the desktop and select "Extract to 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv\, a folder will be created on your desktop named "980Ti-SC-425-1281mv" for you.
#5 Right click mbt.nvflash.zip located on the desktop and select "Extract to mbt.nvflash\, a folder will be created on your desktop named "mbt.nvflash" for you.

Flashing Procedure:
 
Disabling the display adapter is no longer needed in the newer version of nvflash.

#1 Move the "980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.rom" vBIOS located inside the 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv folder into the mbt.nvflash folder via drag and drop. 
#2 Run command prompt via administrator. 
- Windows 7: Press the start button and type "cmd", right click "cmd" and select run as administrator.  
- Windows 8: Press the Windows Key & X keys together, right click "command prompt" and select run as administrator. 
#3 Type the following commands into the command prompt... "cd  c:\users\<your users name here>\desktop\mbt.nvflash" without quotes and hit enter. 
- Type "nvflash --protectoff" without quotes and hit enter. (Turns off write protection on the card. Some cards will need to have this disabled before you can flash the card so always perform this command before flashing.) 
- Type "nvflash -6 980Ti-SC-425-1281mv.rom" without quotes and hit enter. 
#4 If you get an error stating "Firmware image PCI Subsystem ID <xxxx.xxxx> does not match adapter PCI Subsystem ID <xxxx.xxxx>" just ignore the error (this error will cause no harm, it's just letting you know you are changing the subvendor on the card.) and continue on flashing by pressing "Y" to override the error. nvflash should now start to flash your modded vBIOS to the card and complete by saying the flash was succsessful. 
#5 Restart PC. (NVIDIA drivers should automatically detect and install the card, if not, you may need to uninstall the drivers and re-install them.)

Well I will try to shoot for the highest I can go, but each chip over clocks differently, so I might go past 1.5GHZ or I might only go 100 MHz over stock lol
 
We shall see how far I can push this card and I will report back to you guys with a video next week on a small tutorial and numbers of how far I got

Happens instantly. Check mbt.nvflash folder to see if Default_980Ti.rom is stored inside it.

Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

You need to run command prompt as administrator. Did you?

Like I said I am sure he did save it :) he just does not know where it is. Hopefully he has found it now and if he has not found it I am sure he can just use GPU-z
