10G-P5-3897-KL upgraded with the Hybrid Kit add-on.  I was given a BIOS upgrade tool on this forum to make the card show up as the Hybrid Edition in software and RGB control, which worked perfectly.
 
The Hybrid Kit failed after 5 months and is being returned for a refund for RMA.  I have installed the air cooler back on the card.
 
I need to now flash the Ftw3 Ultra OC bios back onto the card, but when I use the download in the 30-series megathread it just says that the 'firmware is up to date' and doesn't apply the bios.
 
Please help.

Have you shut off fast boot in BIOS? What kind of overclock were you getting with that hybrid?

EVGA GeForce 30 Series HYBRID/XOC/Default BIOS Thread
 
You followed all the directions in the thread above ?
 
(excerpts)
 
PSA#1: TURN OFF "FAST BOOT" IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD BIOS.
 
--> Once again, turn off Fast Boot in your motherboard BIOS while you're playing around with flashing your BIOS.  If fast boot is enabled, Windows will treat your card as the same GPU unless there's an obvious change, such as you change from a GeForce RTX 3080 to a GeForce RTX 3090, for example.  Otherwise, Windows will just assume that nothing in your system has changed, including the DeviceID, which will change when you flash to a different BIOS version.  Because Windows doesn't update the information automatically, it will give Precision X1 the wrong information, which is how many of you have run into an MCU flashing issue.  If fast boot is disabled, Windows should check the DeviceID of each hardware component during each boot.  It's still worth it to restart a couple times after flashing or flipping the switch over to a different BIOS to make sure everything is working normally. 
So, please make sure to turn off Fast Boot until you are done flashing, and you've decided on which BIOS switch you want to use.  At that point, you can restart and re-enable Fast Boot again, if you wish.
 
 
 
PSA#2: DISABLE CSM IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD BIOS BEFORE FLASHING A REBAR BIOS.

FTW3 card - did you try the second BIOS position?
 
 
You could contact EVGA Support & ask them to send you your stock BIOS file
 
Support might ask for the BIOS number - on the back of the card (probably under the cover) - usually a BIOS sticker, with

Firmware upgrade completed on reboot.  LEDs were not fully working post-upgrade.  Installed EVGA X1 and it said there was a firmware update available.  After completing that firmware update the LEDs are functioning properly.
 
Thank you!!

How can I tell if the BIOS I just flashed is the 'OC' one or Normal?

Thank you.  I went ahead and flashed it to the OC version from the 30-Series megathread stickied to this forum.
