[GTX 970 G1] Question about flashing BIOS, Please help
« on: September 12, 2017, 12:53:49 am »
I have the Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 gpu, with BIOS version F10.

I downloaded the F13 bios file and I it states in the pdf flash instruction that I should use a DVI cable to flash the 2 bios files, but my monitor does not have a DVI port, only 2 HDMI ports (Samsung S24D590L).

- My question is, is it possible/safe to do the flashing with an ordinary HDMI cable using a HDMI to DVI adapter (like this one : https://www.nabava.net/slike/artikli/525/normalized_/normalized_SBOX-Adapter-DVI-241-M-gt-HDMI-F_ac5c3a23.jpeg)  ?

Probably a noob question, but I want to make this right so I don't turn my GPU into an expensive brick!
