    I guess my next course of action is to try to find your vBIOS and flash that one. It seems to be the only difference between our cards.

    I’m still not sure about that one. I’ll have to sort something out though.

    I may grab a cheap HDD caddy for the DVD bay to give a second option. Still lose out on having sata3 though.

    Nice work man!

    Yeah I had thought it could be something with the vbios but it's hard to stay rational when a huge investment throws you error 43

    It was my first instinct even though I don’t know a lot about vBIOS. I should have just run with it from the start and saved myself a bunch of late nights.

    Yours is a smidge faster. Do you have any increased voltages/clock speeds? I have left everything stock for the moment.
