Dear Diary,

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As you may know about a week a go I killed one of my 470s in the pursuit of performance. Shortly after that I started watching the for sale section here on OCN.net because I was missing my SLI setup the moment one went down.

While I wasn't able to find any in the price range I was looking for ($150~) I never gave up hope. While browsing a few of the for sale threads I came across a gtx 275 that was volt modded by a user here named CL3P20.

I contacted the user inquiring if they were still doing volt modding, he asked what I had in mind and I told him i killed one of my 470s attempting to bypass the overclock protection hardwired into the card. Somehow or another pure change, luck, karma, divine intervention, whatever you wish to call it was on my side. CL3P20 informed me that he had a GTX 470 he was going to sell here on OCN.net but had yet to list it, when I inquired into how much he was asking he told me $115 w/o a cooler or $125 with.

Of course I couldn't believe what I was hearing, so I inquired as to its overclocking capabilities to wit he produced a screen cap of it running 900 core on water... Which of course sealed the deal for me, as getting a sub $150 gtx 470 that was capable of 900MHz wasn't something I was holding my breath for.

After he sent me some pics I had to get some more thermal paste, so I got 2g of Shin-Etsu X23 from Frozen cpu because the time has come...





I just wanted to publicly thank CL3P20 for the great deal, and share my heart ache to jubilation story with my fellow pursuers of performance.

With that said, all thats left to say is: I'm Back!
