I want to flash my gpu vbios to enable resizable bar but my motherboard (asrock z490 phantom gaming 4) does not support it, no bios update for it.

(im updating mainly for optimized fan curve and not for the resizable bar, but the latest version i could find was only for that)
am i going to brick a component if i update the vbios?

You can edit the fan curve with MSI afterburner

i tried that, it started causing artifacts in-game and i was seeing flickering black squares on desktop

i have yet to draw a connection between fan curve and gpu instability but im thinking it probably was the "start up with windows" that could have messed up with gpu stability as it was booting up
