Added a 3rd card for Tri SLI but noticed a different bios, same part #.
 
Added a 3rd card last night to my setup and the first thing I noticed was the part # is the same but the bios is different? Is this common a occurrence? Or did I somehow get a mislabeled SC card?

Unless you buy all 3 cards at the same time, chances are you will get different bios versions, especially with EVGA who constantly release bios updates to fix the odd bug. In the before days in the long ago, different bios versions would break SLI, these days, it's usually k the mix and match.

If everything is running ok, I'd leave it as is, otherwise you can usually get the latest bios from the EVGA support site.
