Hi. Has anyone perhaps installed this new BIOS for their 3090 Gaming X Trio card, and would care to save it to a .rom file and send it to me? MSI Support have sent me an update file which, when attempting to update the BIOS, simply says that the BIOS is already up to date. However, after reboot, the NVIDIA Control Panel shows that the old version of the Low Temperature BIOS, version 94.02.26.08.52, is still installed.

EDIT: It turns out MSI had been sending me the wrong update file all along. They've now sent me the correct update file, which updated like a charm. Now my card has the Low Temperature BIOS with Resizable Bar running excellently. If anyone else needs the BIOS, I've thrown in a DropBox link to the file below.

Hi there,

I am also trying to install the low temperature VBIOS with Rebar. I tried the firmware updater via your link, but am still on 94.02.42.00.F1. Could you please confirm your VBIOS version?

Want low temps with my Rebar :(

My VBIOS version is 94.02.42.00.F3 - are you certain that it's the 3090 Gaming X Trio you're trying to update? Otherwise it should work just by double-clicking the file in my link.

Jstankovski, the solution is to go to the MSI RTX 3090 Bios Page and download and install the low - temperature bios without the resizable bar support. Then After Run 94.02.42.00.F3 Bios Installer.
I too was on bios 94.02.42.00.F1 when trying to run the 94.02.42.00.F3 installer but it said the bios was already up to date. So doing the thing I did above has resolved the issue and now I'm on bios 94.02.42.00.F3.

I will be 100% trying these tips when I get home. Finally updated from my Low Temp BIOS to the Resizable Bar BIOS, but my temps obviously crept up again and fans not kicking in as early. Hopefully this works when I get home from work :) Will confirm for future people, I imagine I will have to go back to the Low Temp as per Junyonglee312 tip first.

Update 5:21pm AEST
Downgraded back to the Low Temp BIOS off the MSI support page, used the BIOS update on here, can confirm fans are now working to low temp curves and getting resizable bar support. Will come back with a benchmark difference on Watchdog Legion with the difference in FPS.

Hey All,

Did a quick Benchmark using Watchdog Legion as my dummy. See belows for before and after BIOS update. Ran benchmarks 3 times in a row and averaged out the results.

Main Rig Components

CPU: I7-11700K (360 COOLER)
GPU: RTX 3090 (GAMING X TRIO)
RAM: 32GB - 3200mhz RAM
SSD: (Boot Drive) - SSD 980 PRO 1TB
SSD: (Games Installed Location) - SAMSUNG 870 QVO 2TB
PSU: MSI A850GF 80+ GOLD

WATCHDOG LEGION
ULTRA PRESET / 4K / RAY TRACING MAX / QUALITY DLSS

Without Resizable Bar, Low Temp BIOS
AVE : 53fps
1% : 43fps
GPU Temp Approx. : 73 degrees

Resizable Bar, Quiet Mode BIOS
AVE : 55fps
1% : 46fps
GPU Temp Approx. : 78 degrees

Resizable Bar, Low Temp BIOS (As per this link) :)
AVE : 55fps
1% : 46fps
GPU Temp Approx. : 71 degrees

My case isn't the highest airflow case as my environment gets quite dusty despite vacuuming the room weekly lol. But this confirms my card is running cooler and maintaining the same FPS with this BIOS Update, super easy to install literally execute the EXE file and reboot your computer. Make sure if your card is already updated with the latest update to downgrade the BIOS as per junyonglee312a802b3.
