    My CH341A wouldn't auto detect my motherboard bios chip (on the P870DM3, chip "U12" basically lies under the touchpad) but seemed able to read fine when GB25Q64 was selected as the chip, close enough is hopefully good enough.

    I tried using the TDP tweaker tool on the vbios included in the package (1080, gsync) and programmed it directly => code 43 :(

    Will try driver reinstall tomorrow morning and a stock vbios flash.

    This is why you should have bought the skypro bro, that is the best 8 pin flasher out there and is widely updated!

    Good luck on fixing your GPU problems though, I remember I got error 43 on my gecube 1070 and that was that, it was dead. I'm thankful eurocom took it back though and gave me an msi one.

    You do need to be careful even with the Skypro as it likes to write the first hex value as 0 :p

    Nah stock vbios is the same. Nv flash reads all the card deets OK and it's fine at windows desktop, so the flash seems not to be the issue. I was just seeing if I could rule out the gpu before flashing the system BIOS and putting the i9 in but looks like it's not going to play nice with the old bios

    Pfft much anxiety about nothing. EFI version 3000A vbios works fine with CFR system bios, driver fiddling not required.

    USB key flash went fine.

    FYI theres some throttle in the SA that keeps the 6700K at about 2.8ghz with this bios.

    Be carefully because you can burn your GPU.

    No, it died within 30 seconds of playing pubg on it. What a crap card.
