Default New eVGA 8800GT BIOS update

This new update ramps the fanspeed up quicker, and more gradually as the temperature increases. This update can lower the GPU operating temperature by about 10c under load. In addition, this BIOS also improves compatibility with some PCIe Gen1 motherboards.

All new EVGA shipping boards will have these changes in place, we have this posted for those of you with existing cards. You can find this BIOS on the EVGA downloads page, or below.


EVGA 8800GT BIOS Update (Version
This update is only for the following EVGA cards:

EVGA 8800GT BIOS Update (512-P3-N801-__)
EVGA 8800GT SC BIOS Update (512-P3-N802-__)
EVGA 8800GT KO BIOS Update (512-P3-N805-__)
EVGA 8800GT SSC BIOS Update (512-P3-N806-__)
EVGA 8800GT BIOS Updates (Updated 1/14/08)

This may resolve some of those 8800GT issues.
