MSI GAMING X TRIO 3080 trouble with HiveOS

I have had the same problem, i had to boot into windows and flash it from there.

Thanks for the response. Do I just use NVFlash and file name? Anything else I need to be aware of?

There are plenty of tutorials on this one but have a read through the following.

Basically you just need to disable protection before you flash, to force is you need to nvflash -6 …

Just be careful because if it goes wrong you can loose you card for ever!

Did you manage to get this flashed on Hive OS?
Thank you

No didn’t work on hiveOS for me, had to do it in windows.

I flash bios on hive with nvflash, it works.
Refer to this post:

Hi! I’ve started mining very recently and I’m new to all this. I have a question for you. Can the process of flashing a different BIOS be done with the “Flash VBIOS” button in the Overclocking tab of my worker (image below) or do I have to use NVFlash for this purpose?



I haven’t been able to flash a different bios with HiveOS, somehow it disconnects my rig when it attempted to flash it.
I used windows and nvflash for it.

Hope this helps.

But you should be able to do it this way, right? I mean it shouldn’t cause any problems if done correctly.

Depends on the definition of right, but there is always a risk when flashing a different bios. for me it didn’t work. You can give it a go and see if it flashes a different bios for you but that is something for you assess the risks.

Ideally it works as i have flashed bios with it but it was for the same card not a different one.

Just my two cents worth… tried to flash my MSI Gaming Trio Z via HIVEOS but it didn’t work. It’s a recent version of HiveOS. I tried it again, same result no change in bios card after the rig reboots. I then tried using Windows (with the ASUS Strix Driver) and bingo it updated the bios successfully. Now in HiveOS my card is hashing 100.7MHs using (fan: 70%; core: 1070; mem: 2500). Temp is 52 degrees mining for a day already and very stable no throttling. I didn’t try flashing the SuprimX bios, if I get some time I will do that another day and report back. I prefer the card to be known as “MSI” not “ASUS” in my Hive Farm. One of the disadvantages I guess but for the extra hash rate I can live with it. Thanks all.


merhaba melek bende de x trio var acaba hangi biosu atacağım birde uzaktan yardım edermisiniz ?

Yiasou!!! :smiley:

Take look on YouTube how to flash bios. I like this video… How To Flash Nvidia RTX 3080 Trio BIOS To Asus Strix for a higher Hashrate or better FPS - YouTube

Then download and use the ASUS Strix bios. Check the version on the video and download the same. Its the version from 2020 - not 2021. Make sure you follow the flashing instructions exactly. Reboot into HiveOs and you will see the card as ASUS not as MSI. Set clocks to… absolute core 1070, memory 2500, fan 70% - you will get 100.5MHs on ETH.

Heya there,

I have 3x MSI 3080 Gaming Z Trio on my rig. My max hashrate is at 91 for one card. then the 2nd is on 89 to 90. then the 3rd one is playing around 88 to 89. Still not flashing it to other bios. I seem to get a max of 91 hashrate at a low OC. -200 / 750 and it’s working just fine. But if I bump it up. the hashrate goes down to 85 to 87.

That is exactly the same ting I saw. as I moved to ever higher OC setting the hashrate went down. At first I thought I needed to quit drinking but its a fact. I have two of the same cards.

Yeah, This GPU is kinda frustrating unlike other brands of 3080s that can hit 95 to 101mhs real quick. Only solution is to flash bios in it then at the same time change the crappy thermals in it and I don’t have the time to do that. :smile:

So I was able to get and ASUS TUF 3080 10G OC. Right out of the box is did this with OC:

But I’m going to have to work up the courage to flash the bios on the other two. Last thing I want to do is brick those

Aye sir! Gaming Z trio cards are really problematic. I also have ventus 3090. They really are heat magnet freaks.

OK So i have found a fix for the wrong power reporting, here is a link to my other post.

Note that setting power limit to 420 is crucial

Now if you are unable to flash your card in HiveOS, first set maintenance mode image
and restart
upload/flash and set maintenance mode to diable and restart.

You are all good to go.

I’ve tried downloading the same exact BIOS, setting it into maintenance mode rebooting then flashing but I get ROM Flashing failed

Anything I’m doing wrong here?
