Results from volt-mod not as expected - Page 3

post #21 of 26
What are using to set your clocks? You've mention ati tool and rivatuner so I'm assuming one of those. I've read some people claiming to set clocks using ati, but I was never able to get any performance gain using that. rivatuner too, setting my clocks using that didn't work for me. only using coolbits I was able to set clocks and see performance increases in 3dmark. try using coolbits if you haven't already. I'm running 700/1600 stable, not mem mod.

...Does that matter? I use ATI Tool most of the time, both before and after volt mod, after learning that it had a built in artifact tool.

I just need to clean the card before I can utilise the volt mod, and want to know if there are any cleaners that will easily get any graphite off.

EDIT: Found this on some cleaning website:

"Pencil lead comes out easily with a pretreatment of straight laundry detergent. Massage the detergent in with your fingertips. Wash as usual in cold water."

Detergent on a card is safe, right?

Bump?

I'd just wipe it off with your finger and a paper towel. The graphite doesn't stick that well to resistors.

Did you change drivers anywhere during this process? Go into your nvidia control panel and make sure "Image Settings" are on High Performance as opposed to High Quality, as this will reset with a driver upgrade sometimes.

This increased my 3DM06 score by over 600 points if I remember correctly, and there's NO change in quality.

The vMod resistor is clean. A piece of graphite (or some pieces) have gotten somewhere on the board they shouldn't have, and is causing ATI Tool Artifact Test to produce artifacts on stock settings.

I have no idea where the graphite is, and wanted to simply clean the whole PCB.

Sod it, I'll just pop down to a local computer shop, hopefully they'll have some TIM remover.
