someone better have some fun with their soldering iron. (i may join the club with 3 just to do this!)
Lol what.... That's crazy! I always wondered what they did with the cards after they had their fun with them. You can't really undo that can you?

For normal volt control all you need is this:


Yeah, that zombie is basically throwing away thousand dollar bills one after the other..... Cool when you are given the cards for free to do just that, not so much when you are paying anything for them.

Yeah I agree. I'd do it just for laughs with a card three generations behind, though. biggrin.gif

Completely agreed. It's pointless to mention voltage mods for people who actually pay for their cards - there's certainly a potential for screwup, which most purchasers of 650$+ cards would wish to avoid.

Of course Kingpin avoids that issue altogether by getting free hardware.

mmm, probably between 300-600$ multimeter...and that oscilloscope looks like a high-tier Tektronix. That guy probably hadn't got to pay for anything shown in his posts tongue.gif

I'm actually waiting for that new e-power to become available. I'm not really skilled enough to use it but they're notoriously hard to get after they're not made anymore so I might as well buy one in case I want to use it in the future.

You can keep doing it wrong until you get it right if you don't have to brace for impact when screwing things up. Probably, when testing and benching cards, those cards are delivered in packs of 10 thumb.gif

Hopefully, with the new driver releases we will see gtx 780 boost in games and stable voltage at 1.2. The 1st one did not even mention 780 at all. biggrin.gif

Well that would be great if I had a 20+ supply of free GTX 780 cards. Just great. Too bad i'm not kingpin and I don't get free gear.redface.gif
