Unlock Afterburner limits on lots of cards! some with LLC (One tool for all AB versions) - Page 45

post #441 of 1282
Looking up that card it has an RT8802a voltage controller, I don't know of any soft mods for that one. Looks like pin 4 would be the hardmod point, if you can test continuity to a nearby resistor a pencil mod may add some voltage, although I really dislike those, they can be pretty flakey.

ok thanks smile.gif
I'm still undecided to go with a 760 or a 770 frown.gif

Yes definitely go with a 770. Lightning or HOF are great and the overclocking will likely extend the length of usefulness dramatically, but if you're going to be playing a modded skyrim you'll need a card with 4GB of vram for sure. I made that mistake.

It might be a stretch for budget, but it will pay off big time with performance. If you use all the good tricks like AB, this voltmod, and whatever you can get for a bios you'll be able to get the performance of a stock 780 most likely. Also take into consideration that games will be ported from the new consoles and will need all the power they can get to play on good looking settings. And when the 800 series releases and the 700 series gets another cut in price you can pick up another 770 to sli with.

But seriously, it is always better to have a a little more performance than you NEED than a little less and have issues or have to use low quality settings or upgrade a year sooner than you would hope. thumb.gif

In your opinion, other than benchmarking, will I have some improvements (in OC and generally in gaming) by giving the card 1.21V instead than stock voltage?

Because i will pay 285$ for the 760 and 367$ for the 770, I know that in OC the differences between the 2 cards become thinner cause of the hig OC the 760 is able to reach.
So my doubts are growing, because the price difference is not little.

Absolutely, add as much voltage as you can until it starts to throttle because of power limitations. Heat is not a big issue with 700 series as they can run up to 95c no problem (although they won't get there easily). I didn't buy this for OCing, I bought a 770 to play games and play them well for a couple years and specifically a Lightning to overclock for fun and much higher performance. Benching happens to be part of the fun. I run my card at or slightly above 1.3v for everything. My card stays at 1359 for gaming and even with 300% power limit I still get a bit throttled in benchmarks or if I add any more voltage or go above 80c. Stock cooler and no extreme case fans or anything. My fan profile can keep it below 80% fan speed and 80c no problem.

It's debatable which of these is better. I have only used and overclocked a Lightning so I don't have personal experience with HOF, but I have only heard good things about it. It runs 52 MHz higher as well as having 126%? Power Limit by default which is great if you're shy about bios modding.

In my opinion I think you will end up using all the performance the 770 has to give and perhaps want more even after overclocking. I also think that if you get the 760 will will be a bit disappointing with overall performance and it will not last long on nice settings, but most importantly I think that the value added by overclocking makes a 770 a better deal overall as it will add more performance % wise to your base clock than a 760 would. Again my opinion.

Yes you're right.
I have a couple question about the 770 gaming edition.
Wich is the max voltage for daily?
And in your opinion how high can i raise the voltage up before encountering issues due to the power limit ?
