Do a search on Ray Adams and follow it. There are programs that allow you to down load your present bios and edit it. My gf3 ti200 is now a research card, not for public use. They default speed is 230/500 and both fastwrites and side banding are enabled. Flash this back on the video card and it is done. sisoft recognizes that the Gainward both supports and has enabled sidebanding and fastwrites. If I use no other programs to change the default speed then the card boots up at a default 230/500. This can of course be changed to any speed you would like however I would rather not fry the card on default settings. Ray Adam's site is back up so do follow the search.
