Default The official MSI Legend of R7000 series Team Contest thread.

Team competition is a nice thing BUT the limitations just dont fit it IMO.

It says

Must use MSI branded graphics card to participate (Use GPU-Z to verify)
Does that mean I can use another branded card as long as it has been flashed with an MSI BIOS? That would be identified correctly in GPU-Z, but does it count?

That, I imagine, rather depends on whether you state your intentions or not

Earlier it said that we could use any card as long as it was flashed with MSI BIOS. I hope that rule hasn't changed?

It never said that.
It said 'You must use a MSI branded card. MSI must be visible in subvendor or bios of GPU-Z'.

Maybe I'm wrong then. Five days ago, when the email was sent out, I could have sworn it mentioned flashing the BIOS of the cards.

In any case, is flashing the cards to an MSI BIOS allowed?
