Hi all,

just got a new 6800gt after blowing up the Leadtek by trying to update the bios, luckily i rma'd it as dead & they changed it.

They had to send me an Asus V9999GT 256mb as they were out of stock of Leadteks, anyways firstly i am well happy as the card autodetected a core speed of 420 clock & 1.14 memory & runs like a dream!

I've noticed it has 2 molex power connectors & is identical to the Ultra displayed on the Asus site, have they just installed a GT bios on an Ultra card & is there an easy way to update the bios to the Utra one?

Not that i really need to as it allready runs faster than the ultra i'm just curios if anyone else has got the same card with the extra molex?

Now think to yourself....how did you break the first card, and how can you prevent breaking another..... ;)

I have this card and have no complaints. Have flashed it with an ultra bios with no problems but get better benchmarks with the bios that came stock..

I know my memory was able to clock much higher when I took the blankets off the memory chips (replaced with AS5) and also bent the memory heatsink a bit to sit on the chips completely. Memory clocks as high as 1230Mhz(on air) with no artifacts now.

Yeah. I mean, the suppliers just make money out of thin air, don't they.

Its not lke they have other poor saps LIKE US paying for your stupid screw ups is it.

Well, wake up numb nuts. It **IS** us paying for your **** ups. You are ripping off the people here who *you* are asking to help you.

So stop being an arse and when you screw up another card, do the decent thing and put it in the trash.

razorman, they're right, do the right thing next time if you take the risk and **** it up (it's not as if you didn't got a quality card to begin with.)

anyway best of luck with the modding/oc-ing

Bleh, as far as I'm concerned, it's the card makers fault for making the flash process so risky. I'd like a dual bios video card like gigabytes motherboards ;)
And on topic, I believe it's not an Ultra but Asus designing a non-standard GT board, those dual molex connectors will offer more stablity and more overclockablity and it's a good feature.
