volt modding is the act of doing various hard modifications to computer components to give them a higher voltage than the design spec. The advantage of doing this is that you can achieve much higher overclocks on otherwise voltage limited hardware. The disadvantages though are that if you mess up the mod, over do it, or lack the appropriate cooling, you can fry your hardware.

Ive seen a 8500GT voltmodded to allow for a 110% overclock on the core and shaders over stock, and others that feed even more juice to a processor on a board that had reached its voltage cap.

Voltmodding requires a steady hand, a guide, a multimeter, and the required hardware to actually perform the mod. Keep in mind that some hardware is not capable of taking a volt mod, but on ALL, performing the mod results in the immediate voiding of the warranty.

make a thread.. there is likely a way to hardmod for adjustable voltage! Will need good pics though...
