One mod that our erstwhile friend NCSpec used to do on Fermi cards was something having to do with replacing the capacitors (I think), and by doing so he used to get some outrageous OC's.
I'm not sure it's worth trying to physically volt mod because I'm pretty sure that you can set it quite high just via software, esp. if you remove the voltage cap in the bios. I mean, maybe if you're going to run it under LN2 or something.
Srry later in the post I noted that we decided to go with my 460 instead of the 470 because of heat and price. If you could change that in the title it would be greatly appreciated!
Anyhoo, the purpose of the thread was to experiment, not to find an easy or cheap way of upgrading a graphics card. I do a lot of soldering rework for my job and I want to learn more about these types of modifications in relation to graphics cards.
I want to do something new, at least for myself, that isn't in the conventional vein of software modding, because I'm a hardware specialist. I'm much more at ease adjusting a trimmer resistor than punching in numbers to an overclocking profileEdited by Pyroball - 8/25/11 at 4:34pm
