[NEWSQUOTE]This is indeed interesting guys. Looks like ASUS has a few tricks up their sleeves to unlock 465's without flashing to 470 BIOS (and risk bricking cards without the 10 memory chips like the 470).[/NEWSQUOTE]

You going to try this?

I'm asking EVGA about it.

Since ASUS did if "officially", I'm asking EVGA if they'll do the same.

I don't want to void a warranty or brick a card.

It would be cool, however, to have a rig with a Phenom x3 unlocked to x4 with a GTX 465 unlocked to near-GTX 470 spec. :D

From overclock.net via Guru3D:

Apparently the GTX465 can be flashed to a GTX470 with all the SPs, TMUs and ROPs enabled! Makes me have second thoughts about my 5770s... at least they were a lot cheaper though. Anyway this was originally found on the Romanian site Lab501 here.

I have fixed up the translation of the flashing instructions:

NOTE: Do not restart or power off the computer until this entire process is completed, or you may end up with a bricked card that has to be blind flashed.

1. Download the GTX465 Unlock Pack and unzip the files to a bootable flash drive. To make the flash drive bootable, put these files on it.

2. Boot from the flash drive and navigate to the directory where the files from the archive were extracted to.

3. Erase the EEPROM with the following command (without quotes): "nvflash-eraseeeprom". Confirm the command with "y" when prompted.

4. Flash the card with the GTX470 bios with the following command (without quotes): "nvflash -4 -5 -6 gtx470.rom". When this has completed, the process is done and the computer can be restarted.

Anybody wanna try this?

Awesome. As the ASUS GTX465s are also identical in appearance to the GTX470s, can save myself money when I come to buying a second one :D

So shouldn't this thread read ASUS Publishes GTX 465 Core Unlock Tool instead. Seeing how thats all it does. Wonder how Nvidia feels about this?

Well, it's at users own risk. So i presume if you brick your card, tool or no tool, guarantee on the card will be toast. And that is Asus problem, not Nvidia.

To Nvidia it only matters selling cards.
