I am finally getting close to opening up the box my KPE 2080 ti came and and putting it to use. Hopefully this weekend as all I am waiting on now is my boards new Monoblock from EK. I have been reading all the posts I can find trying to prepare but am a little lost on flashing the BIOS. I would like to flash the LN2 bios to the OC position for maximum fan speed but I have always been nervous when it comes to flashing for fear of bricking my unit.

So the question is, has anyone written up, or done a video guide on the steps of how this works? I know I am way out of my league when it comes to Overclocking when compared to most around here. I just wanted the absolute best 2080 ti I could get and am happy with my decision to get this one.

Now all I need to complete my system is that Hydro Copper block so I can do a proper loop. :)

    Oh yea you will probaly want TechPowerUp GPU-Z, 
    https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-gpu-z/


    verify bios change after switch changes, sometimes bios wont change with switch move. "i" in lower Precision X1 right corner tells bios you are on. TechPowerUp GPU-Z also tells bios info, also.
    I find that after a bios switch move if i go into my motherboard bios before windows start than the switch change always takes effect.

    I would get the Bios from here https://xdevs.com/guide/2080ti_kpe/#biost over GPU-Z
    Card is already shipped with three different BIOSes, available for download as backup dumps:
    Normal BIOS – This BIOS is stock baseline, +144% Power target limit
    OC BIOS – This BIOS similar to Normal, but more aggressive fan profile, +144% Power target limit
    LN2 BIOS – Unlimited fan speeds, 144% power target, HW set to disable thermal protection for LN2 overclocking.

    Where is it? On the Xdevs page for KPE? What’s different about this particular BIOS?

    Edit: never mind, found it and answered my own question
