    i have tried nvflash from dos, gpuz from Windows. but they both give me a message that the eeprom is unknown. any thoughts if native Windows install can fix this problem?

    aahh allright :)

    Cant you just use nVidia system tools to overclock if you need even more performance?

    it is not stable at the maximum allowed overclocking speed on the stock voltage, but sometimes a bug happens and voltage goes beyond stock to 1000uV and then it becomes stable as a rock.

    i am looking for a way to fix it into that voltage somehow.

    yeah, i have recently got a reply that Apple installed eprom instead of eeprom for the Nvidia card in their Imacs. don't know if it's true though.
