    Guys,
    I would like to ask some help here. I try to fix the first step, and flash the right GOP version vbios to my 1070. The current vbios is on the card: 86.04.2A.00.27.

    This is the screen after GOP check: UEFI Version : 0x30002 (Apr 1 2016 @ 20605201 )

    When I try to flash the GTX_1070_86.04.2A.00.26_N17E-G2 vbios, I receive the following message: WARNING: None of the firmware image compatible PCI Device ID's

    What should i do? thx!

    btw: how do I know if I have gsync or non gsync card? :)

    WARNING: None of the firmware image compatible PCI Device ID's
    match the PCI Device ID of the adapter.
    Adapter PCI Device ID: 1BE1
    Firmware image PCI Device ID: 1BA1
    WARNING: Firmware image PCI Subsystem ID (10DE.0000)
    does not match adapter PCI Subsystem ID (1558.0876).
    NOTE: Exception caught.
    Nothing changed

    PS: I have not clue which card I have - SLI or NOT, GSYNC or not :)

    You're trying to flash a non gsync 1BA1 vbios onto a gsync 1BE1 card

    Nvflash isn't letting you do it. Use a gsync vbios

    I don't know why there are two versions (SLI & non-SLI) of the vbios. Ask dsanke whether it's critical to match the hardware or the intended usage configuration, or if only matters for SLI configs and doesn't matter at all for single card. I can't recall ever hearing about or seeing a Clevo 1070 without a SLI connector

    If you're going to flash custom BIOS/vBIOS I'd have a programmer as backup for recovery (and a 2nd computer to connect it to, even if its a $50 5 year old clunker). Given the cost of say a CH341A and SOP8 150mil adapter is <$20 on ebay/aliexpress/amazon it's highly advisable. You can flash chips directly to get around nvflash blocks (which is how you flash modded vBIOS with higher power limits, see the pascal tdp tweaker tool thread) so while you can brick hardware by flashing incompatible firmware, you can also recover from a brick by flashing a known good firmware backup, which could have helped a few people in this thread who had issues that turned out to be the BIOS being partly overwritten upon post-flash shutdown
