Default Homebrew 560 flash?

is there a way to flash my 560s with my overclock dials so they will quit resetting to default?

Afterburner has an option to apply overclocking on system startup. Enable it, and your OC will be set automatically. I use it. Works fine, and no bios flashing.

Afterburner here: MSI Afterburner

thats what im using, problem is dual booting with linux and every time i boot linux afterburner stops recognizing compatible graphics cards until i disable and re-enable the cards in device manager followed by a reboot. so i thought having the cards defaulted to OCed frequencies would help out!

Ahh, I understand better now. Yes, you might have to tinker with the bios. I can't help you too much with that, but you should be able to download your bios, change the settings, and reflash it. Just make sure your OC is rock solid stable, and keep a copy of the stock bios just in case.


Edit. Use NiBitor to change bios settings. NVIDIA BIOS Editor (NiBiTor) v6.01 Program Released :: mvk.tech :: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 570 560 460 ATI Radeon HD 6970 6950 6870 5970 :: MVKTech :: On the Edge of Technology

word.

now,before you flash, you must be pretty convinced those clocks are good.

also, work on the fan profile too,if you wish. nvflash will help,on a diskette,in dos mode. usb floppy works
well,if the mobo supports it.

Also don't keep your back-up of your old bios on the computer you are using it on... my friend did that and I slapped him in the head.
