    Considered doing this as well, it'll be interesting to see your results, mine I planned on doing the opposite and going more of a Max-Q route.

    Unfortunately i can´t get any vbios provided by Coolane to work in my Alien..

    @Sentential do you already have a hardware programmer ?

    Are you willing to try the vbios on yours?

    No I don't have a hardware programmer I was either going to use a dumped BIOS from another MQ vendor and use pascal flasher or similar to force flash mine into a 1060-MQ

    unfortunately it is not possible to flash pascal cards with modded vbioses these days...
    You need to use a hardware programmer. @Sentential

    @hans12321 Glad you finally succeeded ! Gratz ;)

    I see that you hardflashed the UG15 labelled chip for your AW 13R3.
    As i told you, i hard flashed the UG13 one on my AW 15R3.

    UG13's and UG15's label locations are swapped between our motherboard.
    Looks like the good one is the lowest located on both mobo.

    I wonder if those chips aren't both VBios chip with a backup one... or maybe are mux/demux related.
