More about : flash video card 6850 jasonp12 October 29, 2010 6:51:55 PM I downloaded the flash zip file from XFX and unzipped it this is whats in the readme "Please copy all files to your bootable USB pen drive. Then once booted to DOS prompt type 685flash.bat This will then save your current BIOS as a backup And then flash the new BIOS to the card."

Here you go: http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=421469 There are MANY guides on the net on how to do this. Find and try them. Then just copy the files XFX provided. You can also use MSI Afterburner/EVGA Precision and create a profile with lower fan speed and let it start with Windows.
