Xfx 9600gso vmod question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok I just bought 2 brand new Xfx 512M 9600Gso cards. Now this is the part number. PV-T96O-YHFC will these cards overclock ok without having a pcie power plug?
Or can it be nodded to take a power plug to help?

Adding additional power plugs can be extremely hard and quite advanced. It is easier if the card already has the architecture for it. I remember the 8600 GT had this type of thing that was not used and then easily added because the solder points were already there.



I don't believe the 9600 has that benefit. Also I don't believe that it will add any benefit to the overclocking. You might have better luck with overclocking if you find a volt mod for the card or perhaps the BIOS can be altered to add voltage.

Well the better 9600gso cards I think have a 6pin plug. But maybe im wrong.

I agree but it doesn't appear the card that you linked isn't anything close to the reference design. The originals did have a 6pin:



but it looks like all the circuitry has been removed, so it would take some carefull DMM work to figure out the solder points. Not saying it isn't possible, just would be alot of work for the minimal gain.

I remember the 8600 GT mod that I linked above gave almost no performance gains at all with added juice. Much better results spending time finding a volt mod or bios mod for the card, then if not getting enough voltage for the volt mod to be effective would start worrying about more voltage than the PCI-e lane can add.

Well maybe ill be able to get good clocks on these cards with simple mods.

Good luck! I'm interested since those guys are cheap at TigerDirect. $20 a piece? Wow! MRs suck but still.

my xfx9600gt has 6 pin for sure not sure if there is are solder points fora second or not, i know i clocked to 775/1802/971 fairly easy with stock cooling.
