If you change evbot to 1.4v the software tool will actually read it even though it goes above it's max. I think these things are a pretty good indicator it's working. I didn't install any software with evbot and it also doesn't reset if you restart the computer because the video card never shuts off. So it completely interacts with just the hardware. It's a pretty cool device.
Just to add a bit, for those who are wondering why it doesn't read in software like Precision, Afterburner, etc., it is because it is being done at the hardware level as strong island said.
When you flash your bios to allow 1.212V, that is a software voltage adjustment that other software can read. When you raise the slider to 1.2V in Precision and it shows, that is because that's also a software voltage adjustment that the bios allows.
When you use the EVBot or the Classified Controller, you are adjusting the custom VRM. That is a hardware voltage adjustment. Nvidia has a bios lock of 1.212V, period. That's why even modified bios' can't provide over 1.212V. I am not 100% certain on this, but I am pretty sure that the custom VRM or voltage controller on the Classifieds actually tricks the card into believing it still has acceptable voltages (whatever is being shown in software). That's how they are able to get around Nvidia's locks.
