Just tried to use it to flash the vbios's on my cards, and it corrupted my registry. 
 
When I attempted to flash the vbios's on my cards the screen just went black, and never came back on, so I ended up trying to shut the system down by pressing the power button on my motherboard once to trigger a shutdown, and got no response from that at all, so I had to use the reset button on my motherboard to get going again, and when it restarted after pressing the reset button on the motherboard it would get to the windows logo, and sit there for like 15 seconds before going into a black screen. Ended up trying to get into safe mode, and the same thing occurred, so I ended up having to use a system restore point to restore my pc.
 
Good thing I made a restore point before flashing the cards. 
 
Note: The version that caused the problem for me was nvflash 5.567.0.

    Yikes, that's definitely scary. I would consider doing weekly or even nightly scheduled system images or drive backups as well. I've had system restore fail on me which has put me into really frustrating situations with data loss.

    Old one is the best imo. Newer versions don't have a change log for some reason.

    Hi Sajin. Thanks for this info. Can I just ask the performance difference of the 2080ti FTW3 373w vbios vs Galax 380w vbios? Which one would you recommend? I'm currently using the 380w. Are the performance really different because I have read that the memory timings are better in ftw3 or aorus extreme. Can you confirm? I've been following your posts and it seems that you have changed your vbios from 380w galax to ftw3 373w bios. Can you give detailed insight about the two bios if you have time? Thank you. Kind regards (1st post- please just let me know if I did something wrong. Thank you)

    The galax vbios is best when pushing your card to the max, so that is the one I would recommend.
