Having problems with the vcore mod, did you bench yours mike or just test it??? Im waiting on the right resistor so I did mine with a 1kohm trimmer which only gave me safe control up to about 1.42 then things got sketchy so I left it there. Heres what happend
DId mod, tested for 2 secs to make sure could control voltage and it did
then I hooked up phase to the card and every thing was fine got card to about 1575 only running 3d nature cause cpu was still on air. put voltage back then shut everything down
Hooked up cascade to cpu and ss to gpu and card never got it to boot, vcore was normal but looked like pll and mem phases didnt fire up, thought I either trashed the card or cpu/mobo didnt like pcie 3.0 when cold.
washed card, took mod off and cleaned everything up put cpu back on air and everything was back to normal.
PUt cpu back on cold to double check everything was kosher and it was
put mod back on, no boot again, same thing vcore normal but pll and mem voltages were super low like ocp had triggered, Just took mod off again and everything is fine again.
I have no idea what going on but what I do know is there were no shorts either time the mod was applied.
Would love some input really want to hammer on this card at this point but cant seem to get it right.
I know it sounds like a short but just now to get the card working I cut the wires at the vr not at the solder point so nothing changed on the pcb, is there a way that I pulled two seperate 1kohm vrs out that had a problem?
Oh well next time im going to put a switch on it, maybe it only fires up at a certain resistance.
Also card still throttles at stock even with power target @ 300 was going to short the shunts to see if that worked but the resistance is already @.2 ohms so not sure what to do there either.
