GTX 680 Lightning vGPU Mod

GTX 680 Lightning vGPU Mod

I figured I would post this up in case any of the guys in the 680 Lightning owners thread wanted to take a stab at this thumb.gif

Have fun, be careful! I take no responsibility for anyone screwing up there card biggrin.gif

Keep in mind that all of these pictures are in the exact same orientation so that you dont get confused. (PCIe power plugs are to the left, vMeasure points are to the top, DVI and HDMI outputs are to the bottom, etc. etc.)
The only diference between the pictures is that the first one does not have the top-plate installed on the card. The rest of the pictures are taken with it installed. It doesnt change the orientation in any way so dont let it confuse you thumb.gif

this is the mod point. Looking at the resistor that is circled in yellow, you want to solder to the TOP side of it, not the bottom.



I used a 500ohm VR but a 100ohm VR would actually be a little better

thanks fellas thumb.gif

i havent heard of the CHiL software for OCP ... i know there is a piece of software from them that gives direct I2C access ... is this what youre talking about? Im pretty sure that software was made available to the MOA contestants in the finals, but that it was only given to them at the event only.. as in they werent allowed to take a copy home (though im sure someone broke the rules biggrin.gif )

No, they didn't give them any Chil software. Only gave them v'mods. They where going to have a controller board for IC2 interface, but decided not to.

I would open the files side by side and compare.. there has to be a way to DOS extract the firmware from the CHiL on the 680L... from there you could at least see whats different.

 

**Does CHiL accept contractor applications for DS information? I got one for Intersil.. maybe you can apply and 'get lucky' thinking.gif

 

 

-sent email to MSI peeps.. see what happens. *fingers crossed*
