After that I want to get into the Bios mod stuff, really looks interesting all together. Mezkal would you mind sharing the Bios info with me and also maybe the files etc. needed to do the job, it will save me from looking at all the different ones out there and fasttrack the whole thing. I also want to know how I can identify if I have the 2.2 ram, does it mean that if its Leadtek and has Hynix ram its will be 2.2?


No probs at all on supplying the BIOS files for you. I just need to clarify that your card is the same model as mine. It's not the LX model I mentioned in my previous post is it? If not I'll happily send you all the files necessary
