Ok, so deathangel74 got me hooked on trying out modding my gtx 750 ti's BIOS.  But just like with all overclocking, I would like to know everything about it:
 
1: Saftey
    a. Is it safe?
    b. What do I not touch/go to far on?
2. If my bios fails, how do I flash it back to default?
3. How do I backup my BIOS?  I already know it from deathangel, but would like more info incase there is more to it.  So far I know is you disable the card in device manager and use GPU-Z to backup the bios.
4. What program to use?  I'm assuming Maxwell 2?

    do you have a 6-pin or no 6-pin? what is your most stable overclock? post your bios and i can mod it, it takes me 10-15 minutes now, lol and then you can see the changes I made compared to the original. 
    1.
    a. So far, I've been running 1451/6900 @ 1.200v for about a week now. 
    b. as i said, i can mod your original bios with your most stable settings then you can compare
    2. yes, you would have to enable the integrated gpu beforehand, so you can use it to recover from a bad flash.
    3. download gpu-z 0.8.2 and disable the gpu in device manager, click the radio button in gpu-z that says "save bios", it will take a little time and the screen might flash a little, then it will ask for the destination to save it to.
    4. maxwell II bios tweaker 1.36 to edit, and nvflash to flash.
     
    The best way to learn is to look at another bios, and compare. post the bios and stable overclock settings and go from there.

    Re: Need to know about BIOS modding 2015/04/05 08:55:29 (permalink)
    Ok thx.  My card is a EVGA GTX 750 TI FTW.   I get a 90% stable overclock of 1420mhz (gpu boost 2.0) and a 250+ memory clock (i'm pretty sure it's my GPU causing any type of instability since I have done tests with the vram clock speed and got the same outcome).
     
    Can you be more detailed about flashing back to the original bios incase the modded one goes bad?  I just want to know what software to use so I can do that.
     
    And, my overclocks seem to be chocked by the power target.  All I desire is to have the power target and TDP raised so I can get a stable overclock.  I do not want to do any type of overvolting if possible.
     
    And where do I download it?  I downloaded Maxwell 2 from a forum, but is there a website that has the lastest one?
     
    thank you for the help.

    you can get mIIbt from overclock.net
     
    If you dont have a six pin the power table should look like this:
    tdp-
    43500
    75000
    75000
    pci-e-
    75000
    75000
    75000
    power limit-
    43500
    75000
    75000
     
    with a 6-pin:
    tdp-
    58000
    100000
    100000
    pci-e-
    75000
    75000
    75000
    power limit-
    43500
    75000
    100000
     
    To recover from a bad flash, make sure the integrated gpu is enabled in the system bios
    to flash
    nvflash --protectoff
    nvflash biosname.rom
    y, twice to confirm
    nvflash --protecton
    ctrl-alt-del to reboot
     
    I am currently game stable @ 1450.5/6900 1.2v 57C, idle-135/405 .955mV 26C

    refer to the settings. this is a screenshot of my current modded bios. Good luck. Stop by overclock.net, the is a gtx 750/gtx 750ti club thread there. So if you have questions, just stop by.

    Thx for the help! Just one more question (so far lol).
     
    Is this a good place to install nvflash? http://www.techpowerup.co...5-206-0-1-for-windows/
     
    EDIT:  Ok nevermind, i went on Overclock.net and found the latest of nvflash and maxwell 2.

    Rule #1, always save a copy of your original BIOS before you flash to a new/modified BIOS.  Keep that original copy until you no longer own the card.  If it helps, email the original BIOS to yourself so that you can find it on a future date.

    Ok how in the world do you use nvflash?  Every time I try pressing even a single key in the cmd it keeps quitting.

    put the modded bios in the nvflash folder and put that folder on c:\
    disable the gpu in device manager
    open elevated cmd prompt(admin) and type:
    cd c:\nvflash
    nvflash --protectoff
    nvflash biosname.rom
    y 2 times to confirm
    when done type exit
    re-enable gpu and reboot
    profit!
     
    yup, i have my original bios on my pc in 2 places, a usb drive, email, google drive and my wife's laptop, lol.

    ok thx.  then for the power table, I just put everything you said in that exact order right?  (sorry if i'm very specific, when overclocking I want to make sure i'm doing everything right.)

    It's perfectly fine. I didn't oc for months, until I knew what I was doing. Didn't want to fry my $170 investment and have my wife pissed at me because I need to buy a new gfx card, lol.

    lol. So the vrm's on the gtx 750 ti FTW w/ acx cooler can defiantly handle the extra power right? and yes this card is 6 pin.  I'm mainly asking this question because i'm very very confused as to why the max tdp of this card is only 52W and it has a 6 pin power connector?  Just doesn't make sense lol.
     
    I'm having issues with nvflash, each time I try to flash the bios (followed your exact directions, even did it with a older nvflash) I get a error saying something about it not getting some type of certificate.

    Re: Need to know about BIOS modding 2015/04/06 12:16:17 (permalink)
    Try
    nvflash -6 biosname.rom
    This is the nvflash you need.
    http://www.overclock.net/...passed-for-gtx-970-980 get the 2/10/15 one. It's what I use. Yeah 52 watts is a joke on a card advertised at 60 watts. The 100 Watt tdp is more to prevent throttling, the card will not draw more power than it needs from the psu. 75 watts from pcie slot plus 75 watts from 6 pin peg connector equals 150 watts, so I think we're within the safe range at 100W . I ran fire strike at 4K and saw 89% tdp and 91%tdp from heaven extreme HD.

    As long as you use your max stable oc settings, you'll be fine. Every card is different. Windows 7 can't handle 1450.5/6900, but 8.1 can. I was only able to get 1437.5/6900 with 7. 1420mhz is a decent oc without bios mods. I would try 1424.5 and whatever your stable mem oc was after tdp and power limit mods. I've taken my non Ftw to 1502.5, although not stable trying find my max.

    Wow not bad at all.  I'm assuming you have the FTW edition 750 ti too?
     
    Man i'm very happy now!!  was able to flash the bios and am getting a solid 90mhz+ around 1435mhz with boost 2.0.  I never was able to get that at a power target of 100%.  thanks so much!!
     
    I'm gona play some WT and see if it crashes or not then keep testing and ill give you a screeney of my final overclock.
     
    So the vrm's can defiantly handle this kind of stuff right?

    Yeah. If you use afterburner, unlink temp limit and power limit. Then move the slider all the way to the right and save the profile. No I have the gtx 750 ti sc. The only difference is 1176/1254-sc and 1189/1267-ftw. Glad I could help. It will be fine, just don't go crazy like I did with mem oc.... +274.5 core/boost and +1500 memory is kinda extreme, lol. Granted base 750's are 1020/1085/5400. Have fun and good luck. You have learned much young padawan, lol.

    It will switch from idle speeds 135/405 to 1451/6900 seamlessly. Nothing in between, just make sure you disable hardware acceleration in your browser.

    Thx for the help! here is my most stable overclock so far:

    So you mentioned to not go beyond 1500mhz on the memory right?  I'm going to do some memory overclocks now.

    Yeah proceed with caution.
    Samsung vram =yay!
    Hynix=meh
    Elpida=oh hell no!
    Try 3300 which is really 6600mhz. If you want I can't mod the voltage to 1.2v and get rid of perfcap reason VOp for you.

    In the bios, under voltage. Set the first 3 rows like this
    1312.5-1312.5
    1312.5-1312.5
    1312.5-1312.5
    Then clk 62,63,64?and the last one to
    1312.5-1312.5
    1312.5-1312.5
    1312.5-1312.5
    1312.5-1312.5

    This forces 1. 2v at 3d clocks for a more stable oc. It will revert to. 955mV at 2d clocks. Being a little OCD, I even set clk 's 34-63 max values to 1312.5 on the right, leaving the left value at its default. No issues so far since last Sunday, except self induced trying to push further with no success.

    Ok I was able to get an overclock of 200mhz+ without GPU overclock.  But with both overclocked i'm getting that same issue where the GPU and vram is downclocking (around 400mhz). :(  So should I up the voltage then.
     
    And how do I know if my vram is Samsung or not?

    Gpuz or nvidia inspector should tell you. I would set the MAX gpu and mem oc in the bios honestly. I only use afterburner to monitor and control fan speeds and power limit. Everything else is taken care of in the bios. Whatever your max mem oc is. For example if it's 6600mhz you would enter 3300 in the top right box in clock states(ddr), I think. Refer to the screenshot on page 1. My max mem oc is 6900, so I entered 3450 in the ddr box on clock states tab.

    :(.  Ok ill do it via bios.  Reason why I wasn't doing it thru the bios is because I would have to keep flashing over and over again to change the clock speed. Is that okay to flash over and over?

    This is what my voltage settings look like at the bottom.  There is no 64, so does that mean I do the last two that don't have a name also?

    That's weird, you have the same bios I do, but mine is the SC and yours is FTW. Wth... OK I would try 6300 or 6600. That way you only have to flash twice more. Try the voltage stuff too might help. So for 6300 it's 3150 and for 6600 it's 3300. Or find some where in the middle and do voltage mod and only have to flash once hopefully. Good luck gotta pick kids up from school. Will check back in a bit though. If you get stuck got to overclock.net and ask for assistance in the 750 club thread. Someone should be able to help there.
