General GeForce 210 vmod thread

post #1 of 281
Thread Starter 
With the GPU GeForce 210 64-bit Competition!!! getting underway very soon, why not start a thread all about vmodding these little cards biggrin.gif

Feel free to post your vmods or ask questions about vmodding your card.

To make things easier for people offering vmod advice, here are some guidelines if you want help doing a mod.
Requirements for asking for vmods:
  • List what card you have. Manufacture/core type (218/216)/mem type (GDDR2/3)/ect
  • Pictures of the front and back of the card, the higher resolution the better. Without cooler would be helpful.
  • A list of the part #'s on the chips. Not required if they are readable in your pics.

I'm going to get this started with an Asus EN210 SILENT/DI/1GB3/V2(LP).

This is a 218 core card. 1GB GDDR3. Stock vcore is 0.9v-1v, vmem is 1.5v

On the front of the card, the power deliver is on the left side of the card. We can see 5 large capacitors, 4 mosfets, and two inductors. The largest caps on the left are the 12v rail input filter caps, rated for 16v @ 270uF. Following the power flow, we see 4 mosfets, 1 high and 1 low for each vcore and vmem. This board has only 1 phase per voltage. Next we see the inductors for each phase. Then we see the output filter caps, rated for 3v @ 820uF.

Mods outlined:

Vmem vrm controller is on the back of the card. Chip is a uP6101 http://www.rom.by/files/uP6101.pdf
From the datasheet, we see the FB pin is 6. Measuring from pin6 to ground shows ~536ohms, so I will use a 10k vr for this mod. The ground mod point can be taken off a nearby capacitor or pin3 on the chip is ground. Either works.

The vcore vrm controller is on the front side of the card. Same chip as the mem controller. Measuring pin6 to ground shows ~931ohm, so I will use a 20k vr for this mod. not a lot of other ground point around, so pin3 looks good for this one.

Lots of vcore and vmem read points on the back of the card. There are lots others, so speak up if you want more.

Got my 1Gb & 512Mb Asus silent 210s today, my 1Gb has the exact same model # & rev. # as yours here, but has different voltage controllers. Both cards have APW7165 controllers, no uP6101s. They do still use the same pin 6 for FB & pin 3 for ground though.

What does your 512 have? Mine have little square 16 pin chips with a few letters and numbers that don't mean anything as far as what chip they are.

My 512 mem ICs are Micron D9MNJ, 1Gb card has samsung. Tested the 1Gb, core is decent but memory topped out at 688Mhz stock volts. Haven't tried the 512 yet.

On the 512Mb looks like APW7165 for gpu, & either APW7165 or uP7706 but I think the 7165 is the mem controller.

Derp. I'm a moron, didn't even take the heatsink off and look at my card tongue.gif. Two little chips on the back must be mosfet drivers.

Same controllers as mine, mod details to follow.
