  1. I have undone the bios update and reinstalled the original. I can't mess around with it for too long right now so I'll try it again when there's more resources, more information, better tools, and hopefully an even better vbios version. I have to say, the nvflash utility was super easy and I like it.
  2. The cause was when I switched to quiet bios mode and back. I want to revert to the old bios. What is the easiest way of doing this? Could I use NVFlash and TechPowerUp's archive?
  3. The Asus software doesn't mention anywhere what bios it thinks it's in, which makes this confusing. Is the EVGA one like that, too? Thanks. A few other things. I restarted the PC and Nvidia co troll panel now says that RBAR is turned off. It is the correct vbios version and the motherboard bios is set correctly still. Also, does this RBAR update keep compatibility with unsupported games? Will they work the same as they did before?
  4. I have successfully updated the vbios, but my card is a dual bios card, and I don't know how to update the quiet mode bios. The program that I used to update it is meant for this card.
  5. I updated the motherboard's BIOS, and I'm about to do the VBIOS. By the way, the bios update fixed the other issue I was having with XMP.
  6. Good news, issue fixed. I updated the BIOS version from f2 (March 15th 2020) to f20d (March 11th 2021) and it boots with XMP. I have not fully tested it yet, though.
  7. HWiNFO reports it as F2, released on March 25th, 2020. I think you're right.
  8. Thanks. Before that, I will try it with the updated BIOS, even though I don't think it will do anything different.
  9. There is a way to turn resizable BAR off, right?
  10. Good point. This is the main reason why I am concerned, though.
  11. Here are my specs: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8cZ3dD i7 10700K, Gigabyte Aorus Z490 Elite AC (BIOS version F2), 4x8gb Crucial Ballistix DDR4 3200 (running at 2666mhz) I have never been able to enable XMP. Every time I try to boot with it enabled, the PC goes to the BIOS and disables XMP. Since I was already considering updating my BIOS for resizable BAR support, I was wondering if a BIOS update could also fix the XMP issue. The fact that XMP doesn't work doesn't bother me at all. I am only seeing if I can get two birds with one stone. Thanks.
  12. Here are my specs: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8cZ3dD i7 10700K, Gigabyte Aorus Z490 Elite AC, Tuf Gaming OC RTX 3080 I have been considering updating to support resizable BAR. My only concern is that I've heard that on some games, resizable BAR makes performance worse. Can anyone confirm this? Is it worth it to update?
  13. I have a Dell Poweredge 2950 and a few SSDs of varying capacities: 2x240gb in RAID 1 (OS) 2x240gb in RAID 0 4x480gb in RAID 0 I have run into some issues when plotting. I have found that only TurboPlotter will even open in this particular case. When trying to plot, Turboplotter will work without any issue for up to 30 minutes. After that, I get an error, saying "Received ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND from Windows WriteFile API." When using TurboPlotter's checking utility on the part of the plot file that completed successfully, every section of the file c
  14. For the last few months, my internet has been disconnecting every few minutes, no matter what I'm doing or what device I'm using. I tend to use wifi, but I have tested it on wireless and on ethernet and it does not affect the disconnecting. Also, speeds are very good. I get a solid 200 Mbps on wifi. It just seems to cut out of nowhere. Each time, I lose connection on all devices and it takes a minute or so before I can reconnect. No lights on the router change when the disconnections happen. At first, I thought it was a problem with my ISP, because the disconnecting tends t
