EwinRacing Flash Series Gaming Chairs

Got my backplates in today from EVGA, they are $20 each so the cost isn't too bad and they have pads on the back of them so they actually assist with memory cooling. I touched the back of them after a gaming session and they did get pretty toasty so that tells me they are working. Just make sure you have good circulation in the case to keep air flowing over them to remove the heat build up. My system still needs additional fans for optimal cooling. Here's some pics:

So much agreed, these backplates just add that extra awesome! I was surprised though at how hot to touch they were overall after so many supposedly saying the memory would generate negligible heat. My babies below :P

Yeah it looks like they help in cooling as long as you got air running over them.

Does it really help your temp? I'm on air not water.

First reports I've heard of backplates assisting with cooling. Now to cover them in spiky heatsinks from radio shack and point a 200CFM fan at them. What do you mean looks will be ruined, THEY HELP THE COOLING!!!

Lol I have two case fans running air over them so that's enough.

Looks great! Any chance of lower temp? (even at least by 1C?)

There's no memory temp sensor so its hard to say. Could take a laser temp gun to it I suppose but it still wouldn't really tell me if its running cooler or not.

I see. Well.. at least temp isn't higher with backplate. And it looks nice. Good enough for me. Heh :D

Do the backplates really assist with memory overclocking? My titan is sitting at +550 (not tested higher) without any troubles without a backplate.

I wouldn't think that it affects it much if at all, but I haven't done any testing since I tried the first Naennon BIOS, I might go back and capture temps again.

This reminds me that I should finally mount that backplate which laying around here... lol, just too lazy.

I don't think the difference is something which will affect the overclockability, but the backplate sure does look nice. Something like this should definitely be included by default with such a premium product. With that price Nvidia should provide a gilded backplate :D

I've got 2 on my titans. They REALLY look nice. My only problem is I buy them, then decide I want to WC them lol, I guess it's no big deal at $20 each though. I got the Razer blocks... nice!

Supposedly they are offering free back plates for the 770s. And via email a rep told me that even though the titan ones are compatible with the 780s they are specifically making new ones for them. I wonder if they will offer those free as well.

I had two titans but got rid of them for the cheaper 780 acx models...I did order a backplate for the 780 and its basically identical.

I feel like adding a back plate would reduce the amount of direct air blowing on the memory (for the titan). I would think the ram would get hotter. Has anyone done tests?

I should probably get a backplate for my 780 SC ACX too, sad that it was not included with card though.

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
       
      Donation link in case you want to buy me a beer

      Thanks and cheers!

      I have tried to update nvidia drivers of my notebook ge72vr6rf apache pro. The only drivers that works are the ones provided by the msi. The problem is that they haven't updated those since 2016 and I can't play newer games. 
       
      Some say you need to mod your 1060 drivers, which I have no idea how to some says you need to update the flags in ini files. So please help me
       
      Thanks for your time.

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.

      Well that didn't take long for NVIDIA to respond to Navi. The new 436.02 Game Ready Driver adds the following features:

      Game Ready
      Provides increased performance and the optimal gaming experience for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade, and World War Z
      Gaming Technology
      Adds Beta support for GPU Integer Scaling Adds Beta support for Ultra-Low Latency Mode Adds support for new Freestyle Sharpen Filter Adds support for new G-SYNC compatible monitors Driver release notes: https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/436.02/436.02-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf


      This isn't the old max pre-rendered frames setting, its supposedly a new improved algorithm that matches AMDs anti-lag feature for Navi.

      Next up is support for integer scaling which Intel recently announced but it seems NVIDIA beat everyone to the punch. Unfortunately, this is only for Turing for now:


      Additionally NVIDIA has created a new filter for FreeStyle simply called "Sharpen" which improves performance and visual clarity that is supposed to be on par with RSI but with much broader support and granular adjustment. According to Eurogamer, "They also point out that the amount of sharpening can be adjusted from 0 to 100 per cent, applied on a per-game basis and works with games across all major graphics APIs: DX9, DX11, DX12 and Vulkan".


      Finally, the driver brings with it some game performance improvement, including very popular titles like Apex Legends which sees up to 23% boost at 1080p:



      Overall a pretty solid release, it had some issues earlier when it was released with GeForce Experience being force installed but it should be remedied by now.
